Today, the Maker Foundation formally introduces the first 13 Maker Improvement Proposals (MIPs) to the Maker community. The 13 MIPs include MIP0 and two MIP Sets for Core Governance and Collateral Onboarding.
The MIPs Framework: Defines the underlying structure of the governance processes that will be used to continuously effect change and maintain the Maker Protocol in a standardized manner. It provides the necessary tools, and resources for the community to have a simple, standard approach to proposing new improvements, specifications, or process changes to the Maker Protocol and Governance system.
Core Governance MIPs Set: Defines the key governance structures, laying the backbone of long-term governance processes, such as how to organize executive votes.
- MIP1 (Maker Governance Paradigms)
- MIP2 (Launch Period)
- MIP3 (Governance Cycle)
- MIP4 (MIP Amendment and Removal Process)
- MIP5 (Emergency Voting System)
Collateral Onboarding MIPs Set: Based on the independently community-created collateral onboarding document, this Set defines an end-to-end framework for scalable collateral onboarding that interoperates with the Governance Cycle and the existing Domain Teams.
- MIP6 (Collateral Onboarding Form/Forum Template)
- MIP7 (Onboarding and Offboarding Domain Teams for Collateral Onboarding)
- MIP8 (Domain Greenlight)
- MIP9 (Community Greenlight)
- MIP10 (Oracle Management)
- MIP11 (Collateral Onboarding General Risk Model Management)
- MIP12 (Collateral and Risk Parameter Management)
Please review the first 13 MIPs in the Maker Forum and provide feedback. All community members are urged to participate in the review process. On April 27, just 21 days from today, a special governance poll, called a timing poll, will occur. The timing poll will offer two options to the Maker governance community:
- Proceed with the ratification vote of the 13 proposed MIPs immediately, or;
- Delay the ratification for one month, and then institute a period of time to allow competing proposals to be submitted by the community.
The details of the timing poll are described in this forum post.
