Increase the System Surplus Buffer - January 11, 2021

Poll ended

The Governance Facilitator(s) have placed a Governance Poll into the voting system on behalf of the Maker Governance Community. This Governance Poll will be active for three days beginning on Monday, January 11 at 16:00 UTC.

This is a binary vote. In a binary vote, you may vote for a single option. You should vote for the option which you prefer. Alternatively, if you would accept either of the two options and have no preference between them, you should abstain.

Review

MKR Token Holders may vote in this poll to express support or opposition to the following change to the System Surplus Buffer (also referred to as the 'System Surplus'):

  • Increase the System Surplus Buffer from 4 Million DAI to 10 Million DAI.

Please review the discussion thread to inform your position on this issue before voting.

Outcomes

If the votes for the 'Yes' option exceed the votes for the 'No' option then the following actions will be taken:

  • This 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 the votes for the 'No' option equal or exceed the votes for the 'Yes' option then no further action will be taken at this time.
