6 POLLS - ENDING OCT 25 2021 12:00 GMT-4
Ratification Poll for Growth Core Unit Budget, GRO-001 (MIP40c3-SP37) - October 11, 2021
Voted “Yes” – for the continuation of support for the Growth CU and their quest to expand the DAI supply across the stablecoin spectrum. Also, the new hiring of Corina as Project Manager is a plus, as the team is laser focused on expanding campaigns with current partners.
Ratification Poll for Adding the Deco Fixed Rate Core Unit (DECO-001) - October 11, 2021
Voted “Yes” – Deco is a platform that allows Maker to set/control the rates for Fixed Yields, and its designed by a former Maker Engineer (some might say a Maker OG) @vamsi – who IMO is top tier talent and I believe most MKR holders should want and love to see veterans like him continue to contribute. It is aligned with the right incentives, as this core unit is proposed on standard compensation terms and profit share will kick-in if Deco is successful. I am also excited to see Deco used as a test-case within project Sandbox.
Ratification Poll for Modify Core Unit Budget, MKT-001 (MIP40c3-SP33) - October 11, 2021
Voted “Yes” – it is vital that we support our Core Units. It is extremely important that our Team members sleep well at night knowing that MKR token holders support their efforts, and understand that their comfort via Job Security will equal productive and positive-sum results. And yes, this CU needs to modify their budget – but think about the stress that this mishap has put on the entire team. One thing we All must remember is that the blockchain is an open book. The DAI streamed to All the Core Units is available for you and I to check via the Makerburn Accounting Dashboard.
And yes, they are “under budget”. But let’s not forget that the Content Core Unit has not been operating for that long. And when an entrepreneur starts a new business the most comforting resource is having excess capital that ensures versus an unexpected expense, or scaling the business by hiring new team members (Content CU is in the midst of doing such). More importantly–let’s be honest–the DAI is still in their multi-sig and there has never been a sign of them behaving maliciously.
On a weekend where PECU delivered and amazing feat of MakerDAO strength and goodness– by helping an end-user recover their ETH–I support our Core Units, and therefore I Vote YES to the @Content-Production budget.
Ratification Poll for Implementation of DSS Charter (MIP59) - October 11, 2021
Voted “Yes” – I fully support the DssCharter as it will boost DAI supply and incentivize long-term borrowers.
Ratification Poll for Adding Data Insights Core Unit (DIN-001) - October 11, 2021
Voted “Yes”, as many CU teams have used the talents of DIN and such CU provided positive feedback on the results of working with DIN.
Ratification Poll for Adding MakerLabs Core Unit (SNUNK-001) - October 11, 2021
Voted “No” – IMO MakerLabs would have benefitted from the SES incubator program as their proposal currently lacks a pipeline, clear requirements, and milestones. I urge @ultraschuppi and his team not to give-up and be resilient as the Collateral Engineering Services Core Unit and @monkey.irish – who had to go through 3 iterations to finally get onboarded.
