While going over proposals, doing further research, I encountered an issue around sustainability and whether this should even be taken into account when looking at projects or partnerships.
In my own delegate platform I have two key Core Values that I emphasize.
- Stakeholder recognition - micro to macrocosm
- Secure, Sustainable and Scalable Systems.
These Core Values apply to everything. Is what I am doing sustainable, scalable, and not just good for myself, or my community, but the world in general and also sustainable indefinitely into the future? This is a high (if not impossible) bar to be sure, but the question that came to mind is whether MakerDAO should consider having ANY metric (much less the one suggested above) when pursuing partnerships or business opportunities.
This poll does NOT propose what should be included in such a metric but whether ANY metric beyond profitability, growth, security and risk profiles should be considered when projects or partnerships are being considered.
Submitting poll for consideration and thread for discussion to gauge MakerDAO sentiment on this issue. If the poll resolves to yes then the next poll will be what metrics should be considered.
