Key Outcomes of the Fourth Governance Cycle

The fourth Governance Cycle, which began August 3 and ended on August 28, included two proposals—one related to the DAO’s decentralized workforce and the other signaling an intention to create a Vault Holder Advocacy Group: 

These proposals were ultimately rejected by the Maker Governance Community.  

Nine proposals, outlined below, are currently in the Request for Comments (RFC) phase. This means it is time for the Maker community to provide feedback on each or request changes from Proposal Authors. 

Proposals in the Request for Comments (RFC) Phase:

Proposals in the Formal Submission Phase (Planned for the October Governance Cycle)

The Formal Submission phase is when MIPs or Subproposals have concluded the RFC phase and are proposed to enter the Governance Cycle.

Collateral Onboarding: 


Domain Team Onboarding and Offboarding:

Other

Pre-MIP Discussions

Community Greenlight Polls are Governance polls that are specific to gauging community sentiment for collateral onboarding. Specifically, Greenlight Polls allow MKR token holders to inform the Domain Teams (Risk, Smart Contracts, and Oracles) of their preferences for collateral types that have been proposed through Collateral Onboarding Applications. These polls run for a period of two weeks starting the third week of the Governance Cycle. 

While Domain Teams are free to choose their own workload, an on-chain Governance poll provides them with key insights into community sentiment for each collateral type proposed. In addition, it is important to gather the opinions of MKR token holders before the full domain work takes place, as a matter of efficiency.

August’s Collateral Onboarding Community Polls went live on August 17 and ended on August 31. The polls, 12 in total, covered the following collateral types:

Maker Governance Review August 2020
Results: All of the above collateral assets were greenlit by the community, with the exception of CHI, which was deferred. 

The fifth Governance Cycle began on September 7, signaling the start of the Formal Submission period for new MIPs, Subproposals, and Collateral Applications. The formal submission period ended on September 9. Proposals will be approved or denied by Governance Facilitators on the weekly (Thursday) Governance call. If approved, proposals will enter the Governance Cycle in week two of the August Cycle through Inclusion polls on September 14. 

The Weekly MIPs Update is typically posted in the Maker Forum on Sundays or Mondays. The update summarizes the most recent events in the world of MIPs, the previous week’s activity, what to expect from the current week, and what’s on the agenda for the next week. It also covers updates with respect to Governance polls and votes, collateral onboarding, and rate adjustments.

To stay current on Governance, risk, and community issues, bookmark the MakerDAO Public Events Calendar. Newcomers to Maker might want to review our series of posts on the MakerDAO Governance Risk Framework.

Also, remember to review the Maker Improvement Proposals category in the Maker Forum and visit the #mips rocket.chat channel to discuss topics related to MIPs, the Self-Sustaining MakerDAO Initiative, and long-run Governance. 

To learn more about the Governance activities that occur during the Monthly Governance Cycle, see MIP3 for a week-by-week breakdown. 

For the most current MIP-related activity, see the official MIPs Github page.

MIPs support the organic growth that further expands MakerDAO’s self-sustainability by providing the Maker community and all stakeholders with a standard approach to proposing improvements, specifications, and process and state changes to the Maker Protocol and MakerDAO.
