Governance Initiatives

Recently I have wanted to try to be more transparent about what I am working on ‘behind-the-scenes.’ I am creating this summary post to collate all the governance initiatives taking place. That said, I will only directly be creating my own. If anyone else is working on something governance related I would encourage them to make a post about it so that I can link it here.

Transparency has always been a ‘hot-topic’ in the MakerDAO community, usually in relation to the Maker Foundation. However, there is room for improvement on the side of community initiatives as well, this is what I am focusing on.

Governance Initiative: Maker Governance Analytics Dashboard - @LongForWisdom is coordinating work on the website in order to improve the available data around governance participation.

Governance Initiative: Experimenting with SourceCred - @LongForWisdom is coordinating the creation of an experimental trial for the SourceCred algorithm within the Maker community.

Governance Initiative: Collateral On-Boarding Process - @LongForWisdom, @Mitote and @Planet_X are working on creating a comprehensive collateral on-boarding process.

Governance Initiative: Open Grafana Dashboard - @dawson is producing a Open Grafana Dashboard with the aim of providing customizable dashboarding to the Maker Community.

Governance Initiative: Weekly Governance Summary - Maker Holder DAI-gest - @adrianhacker-pdx is producing a weekly governance summary called Maker Holder’s Dai-gest.

Governance Initiative: Maker Business Analytics Dashboard @hexonaut is producing a business analytics dashboard for use by MKR Token Holders.
