Ratification Poll

The Governance Facilitators have placed a ratification poll into the voting system as part of the responsibilities defined in MIP51. This Governance Poll will be active for fourteen days beginning on Monday, September 12 at 16:00 UTC.

This is an instant-runoff vote.

  • You may rank any number of options that you would support in an executive vote.
  • Unranked options signal that you would not support the option(s) in an executive vote.
  • If you have no preference to any of the listed options, you should vote 'Abstain' as your first and only choice.


The community may vote in this poll to express support or opposition to MIP40c3-SP80 being accepted and implemented in the Maker Protocol by ranking their support of the following options:

  • Option 1 (CU preferred): 200% multiplier applied: 330.27 total MKR.

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

"This proposal seeks the ranked choice vote on the following vesting allocations to GovAlpha contributors, covering MKR compensation for the Core Unit for the past 6 months. Subsequent requests will take place every 6 months, featuring the same 12-month cliff. Contributors do not forfeit their vesting upon leaving GovAlpha, provided that their departure is a smooth transition and there have been no serious ethical breaches.
