Forum Discussion

The Governance Facilitators have placed a Governance Poll into the voting system on behalf of the Maker Governance Community. This Governance Poll will be active for three days beginning on Monday, January 18 at 16:00 UTC.

This is a binary vote. In a binary vote, you may vote for a single option. You should vote for the option which you prefer. Alternatively, if you would accept either of the two options and have no preference between them, you should vote 'Abstain'.


The community can vote in this poll to express support or opposition to transferring 12,700 Dai from the surplus buffer to members of the vault compensation working group for their past work organizing the vault compensation proposals. Funds will be allocated to individual members as follows:

@makerman: 6,300 Dai for 126 hours to [0x9ac6a6b24bcd789fa59a175c0514f33255e1e6d0]
@monet-supply: 3,800 Dai for 76 hours to [0x8d07D225a769b7Af3A923481E1FdF49180e6A265]
@Joshua_Pritikin: 2,000 Dai for 40 hours to [0x2235A5D7bCC37855CB91dFf66334F4DFD9C39b58]
@befitsandpiper: 400 Dai for 8 hours to [0x851fB899dA7F80c211d9B8e5f231FB3BC9eca41a]
@Vault2288: 200 Dai for 4 hours to [0x92e5a14b08e5232682eb38269a1ce661f04ec93d]

Please review the discussion thread to help inform your position before voting.


If the votes for the 'Yes' option exceed the votes for the 'No' option then the following actions will be taken:

  • These transfers will be included in the weekly Executive Vote on the Friday following the conclusion of this poll.
  • If the Friday executive passes, then these transfers will execute after the GSM Pause Delay has expired.

If the votes for the 'No' option equal or exceed the votes for the 'Yes' option then no further action will be taken at this time.


If you are new to voting in the Maker Protocol, please see the voting guide to learn how voting works, and this wallet setup guide to set up your wallet to vote.
