Edited to add: I should make sure it’s clear that payments would be for the life of the trust, made every 6 months from the charitable trust, and would be in USD, not DAI (since the US Treasury pays interest in dollars)
It came to my attention in the AMA today about the proposed Maker Portfolio Core Unit that determining which charities would be funded by purchasing Treasuries could prove contentious.
I am personally agnostic on which causes would receive income from the charitable trusts, but a major goal of the MPCU is to build constituencies that appreciate and value Maker’s continued existence. That will provide us with advocates outside the cryptosphere as Maker demonstrates through concrete action that it is a force for positive change.
Given that, can people propose possible methods of regularly (perhaps monthly) selecting charities to receive years of interest income from Treasury purchases?
Note that I’d like to avoid mention of specific charities.
This is to brainstorm how we can distribute the (legally required in the charitable trust structure) stream of income to worthy causes without having everyone getting madder than a rained-on rooster every month. All suggestions welcome, just keep it to processes and not named causes.
Thank you to @Planet_X for pointing out this may be a speed bump to consider ahead of time, as it is a requirement of the structure.
