Payment Implementation

The MKR payment implementation will have two elements and include a phased MKR distribution comparable to the DUX MKR Flow. The first is a Deco Reserves multisig and a the second is a Deco Operational wallet. The Auditor Wallet will receive each MKR disbursement Six (6) months prior to the vest date. Three (3) months prior to vest the MKR will be distributed from the Auditor Wallet to the Deco Operational wallet requiring a 2 of 3 quorum for release to vesting. Upon vest, the Deco operational wallet will release the vested MKR.

This payment implementation makes no assumptions regarding the origin of the MKR. It may be moved from the protocol’s treasury, newly minted, or obtained from another source.

The MKR that is held by the Deco Auditor Wallet and the Deco Operational Wallet will not be used for voting, signaling, or any other type of governance participation. It will remain in the wallets untouched until it moves to the next step in the process.

The Deco team may consider alternative payment flows compliant with DssVest if the standardized flow is compatible with the vesting schedule and that the risk is deemed acceptable by the team.

Please note that we have made some modest changes to the Deco proposal, for Formal Submission in the November cycle, to bring it into closer alignment with Maker general practices and by accepting a few suggestions.

  • Operational Entity following Integration. Upon completion of the integration of the Deco Protocol, the administrative, operational, and maintenance obligations, including legal, will be transitioned from the Core Unit to a separate legal entity, DecoM, which will function in alignment with Maker policy and procedures.
  • Reimbursement of All Payment to Deco. Deco will reimburse/credit to Maker in Dai all payments before receiving Revenue Share. Maker will pay to Deco 15% of the revenue from the Fixed-Rate CLAIM_FEE token sales only AFTER it has reimbursed the Deco Core Unit, and DecoM operating expenses, advanced by Maker, and any MKR distributions which are to be valued in Dai as of the date of acceptance and approval by Executive Vote Pass and to be utilized through December 1, 2024.
  • Budget. Also, there was a modest increase in the budget for legal.

We again look forward to any questions you may have as we seek to integrate the Deco protocol for Maker.
