Ratification Poll for Expand Facilitator Definition to Allow Entities (MIP4c2-SP34) - March 13, 2023
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, March 13 at 16:00 UTC.
This is a binary vote.
- You may vote for a single option.
- You should vote for the option which you prefer.
- If you would accept either option, you should vote 'Abstain'.
The community may vote in this poll to express support or opposition to MIP4c2-SP34 being accepted and implemented in the Maker Protocol.
A brief summary of this proposal has been provided by the MIP Author and is shown below:
MIP41 defines Facilitators as “accountable individuals”. The term individual is defined as “a single human being as contrasted with a social group or institution” (Merriam Webster Dictionary). This potentially limits participants from engaging as facilitators should they want to apply specifically as a liability protected entity. By expanding the definition to “authorized accounts,” entities will be able to apply as facilitator while specifying accounts that can engage in Maker Governance with the full power of the facilitator, while still retaining the consent of MKR holders.
