We’re aware that some want to see governance action very quickly, and others want to better specify before moving forward. We believe we can accommodate both sides with the following process.
Put up signal request voting on general agreement with the direction described in Rune’s Clean Money post. This signal will make no concrete or binding promises with respect to actual action.
If successful, put up an on-chain poll, again voting on general agreement with the direction described in the post. Given the importance of the decision, and the difficulty some larger holders have voting quickly, this on-chain poll will last 7 days. Like the signal, this poll will specifically not bind MakerDAO to any concrete action with respect to the post.
As Step’s 1 and 2 take place, the community should collaborate on creating a MIP or Declaration of Intent which both:
- Clarifies the vision agreed to previously in general terms.
- Lays out in more detail how MakerDAO intends to proceed with and hopefully achieve that vision.
This step will likely require more explicit polling to figure out a set of principles, and hopefully some exploratory work which helps break down some of the items proposed in Rune’s post.
The proposal is submitted in the January monthly governance cycle and is voted on by MKR Holders the same as any other monthly proposal.
Note that the outcome of the above signal is non-binding and does not reflect an obligation for MakerDAO to implement any part of said post. It is intended to indicate in which way the MakerDAO community (and subsequently MKR Holders) are leaning so that community members and MKR Holders can take this information into account in their actions over the following few months.
This signal poll will conclude on 2021-10-21T00:00:00Z, at which point an on-chain poll will be organised. We may delay the on-chain poll in order to allow us to reach out to larger MKR Holders prior to the poll beginning.
