Development & UX Core Unit - Mandate

A brief summary of this proposal has been provided by the MIP Author and is shown below:

Our vision is to provide the best governance user experience following key governing principles such as accessibility, neutrality, and transparency. We want to do so by:

  • Facilitating an optimal decision-making process, allowing routine decisions to be executed in a fast and frictionless manner, while complex or controversial decisions are thoughtfully deliberated.
  • Providing easy access to information for governance users by helping them find what they need, when they need it by creating informative data analytics, uncovering insights, and highlighting the impact of voter’s decisions.
  • Surfacing the available options by facilitating discussion and collaboration.
  • Creating a frictionless user experience with simple, fast, available, and intuitive user interfaces.
  • Ensuring security not just for the user and their assets, but most importantly, security for the protocol, avoiding governance manipulation and attacks.
  • Ensuring availability of the governance UIs and the required blockchain data.
  • Real-time monitoring of the health and safety of the system.
  • Encouraging safe behavior through the user experience.
  • Encouraging participation to secure the majority of MKR tokens.
  • Bringing governance within the industry forward by nurturing a community of Maker enthusiasts and inspiring the broader DeFi space.
