Risk Variable
Discussion

The Governance Facilitators have placed a Governance Poll into the voting system on behalf of the Maker Community. This Governance Poll will be active for three days beginning on Monday, November 22 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.

Review

MKR Token Holders may vote in this poll to rank their support for the following changes to the System Surplus Buffer (also referred to as the 'System Surplus'):

  • Option 1: Increase the System Surplus Buffer from 60 million DAI to 90 million DAI, with a gradual increase of 0.67 million DAI per week.
  • Option 2: Increase the System Surplus Buffer from 60 million DAI to 130 million DAI, with a gradual increase of 0.67 million DAI per week.
  • Option 3: Increase the System Surplus Buffer from 60 million DAI to 90 million DAI, with a gradual increase of 1 million DAI per week.
  • Option 4: Increase the System Surplus Buffer from 60 million DAI to 130 million DAI, with a gradual increase of 1 million DAI per week.
  • Option 5: No change to the System Surplus Buffer.

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

Outcomes

If a non-'Abstain' option receives more votes than each other option (excluding 'Abstain') and the votes for that option exceed 50% of the total votes cast then that option is deemed the winner and the following actions will be taken:

  • If the winner represents a change from the status quo, then change will be included in the weekly Executive Vote on the Friday following the conclusion of this poll.
  • If the Friday executive passes, then this change will become active in the Maker Protocol after the GSM Pause Delay has expired.

If no option has enough votes to exceed 50% of the total votes cast, then no further actions will be taken at this time.
