Working Group: Autonomous MakerDAO - Update

In September, a small working group formed to focus on medium-term initiatives that further develop MakerDAO as an autonomous organization. Since then, the group has added @SamM to the working group and updated a few objectives:

  1. Decentralize Domain Teams’ work.
  2. Secure income from the Maker Protocol to ensure funding of continued operations.
  3. Maintain and develop Maker Governance integrity.
  4. Attract, onboard, and develop domain teams and individual actors working for the DAO.
  5. Map a DAO operating infrastructure.

Current Progress

The progress of the work on the objectives are tracked in this document. Some key highlights in the past 2 months:

What’s Next?

  • Initiatives for onboarding more contributors
  • Developing a MIPs Portal
  • Improvements to the governance experience
  • Get domain teams and contributors paid by the protocol using MIP14
