Hello voters and lurkers.
As many know, there was an informal poll regarding the 84k MKR received from the foundation, and we currently have a signal request to send them to the burner. While MakerDAO having mint/burn capabilities over MKR may make the “Protocol Treasury” (as it is called on daistats.com) economically meaningless, there can be little doubt it is psychologically significant.
I therefore wish to propose that MakerDAO create a highly memetic “Protocol Treasury” hoard by burning MKR from or minting MKR to the treasury to achieve the most infectious meme.
- Removes the cognitive overhead of having such a boring Protocol Treasury value
- Possibly good PR for MakerDAO
- Engineering time to craft the spell
- Some people could find the meme distasteful
- Likely additional cost to commission accompanying artwork
Please indicate which numbers you think would be most virulently memorable. I have included only numbers which will keep the total supply of MKR, including the treasury, under the very nice and memorable “1 million”.
- 36666 (ape yearn)
- 36667 (surpass yearn)
- 84000.1 (no change)
Final Results: 75% of votes were Abstain or No Change. Therefore, signal has been closed and no further action will be taken.
