|DUX-001 Budget||“MIP40c3-SP52 modifies the DAI budget implementation for Core Unit DUX-001: Development and UX, replacing MIP40c3-SP26”.||@wouter|
|MKT-001 Budget Removal and MKT-001 Facilitator Offboarding||“MIP40c3-SP49 removes all and any active budgets for the Content Production Core Unit—Dai or MKR”.
“MIP41c5-SP3 offboards the current Facilitator of the Content Production Core Unit (MKT-001)”.
|ORA-001 Gas Costs Budget||“MIP40c3-SP45 appends Maker Oracle gas costs to the Oracle Core Unit ORA-001 budget for August 1 2021 through end of March 2022”.||@nikkunkel|
|RWF-001 Facilitator Onboarding (Will Remor)||“As MakerDAO enters a new phase were rapid scalability of the RWA pipelines that have been built up over the past year becomes possible, I believe it is crucial that the RWA Core Unit is improved and decentralized into multiple Core Units, and I believe as the oldest RWA contributor in the MakerDAO ecosystem Will Remor is the right person to take the role of Acting Facilitator and oversee the decentralization process”.||@rune|
