Add Strategic Marcomms Core Unit

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

MakerDAO has entered its next stage of growth. In six months, DAI circulation has more than quadrupled to 4.7 billion from 1 billion in November 2020. The surge takes place as the stablecoin market expanded exponentially in the past year.

Given the pace of growth in the current market environment, the unit believes it is a crucial time for MakerDAO to increase marketing initiatives to drive growth, maintain thought leadership, and gain market share.

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

Individuals’ lives can be improved immensely when they have access to open finance and an unbiased, stable currency.
