The Governance Facilitators and the Maker Foundation Smart Contracts Team have placed an Executive Vote into the voting system which will enable the community to approve the following alterations to the protocol.
Increase the ETH-A Debt Ceiling
The Risk Domain Team is proposing this increase to the ETH-A debt ceiling due to the combination of the recent bullishness of the crypto space and the coming governance contract migration which will prevent non-emergency changes to the protocol for 1-2 weeks. Please see the linked thread to see the rationale behind the change in more detail. The ETH-A Debt Ceiling will be increased from 490 million DAI to 590 million DAI if this proposal passes.
Additionally, a community signal request was in progress for the same issue.
Therefore, if this Executive proposal passes the following will occur:
- The ETH-A Debt Ceiling will be increased from 490 million DAI to 590 million DAI.
- The Global line parameter will be increased from 1,481,750,000 DAI to 1,581,750,000 DAI.
The Executive Vote will continue until the number of votes surpasses the total in favor of the previous Executive Vote. This is a continuous approval vote.
Community debate on these topics can be found on the MakerDAO governance forum. Please review any linked threads to inform your position before voting.
Additionally, these changes may have been discussed further in recent Governance calls. Video for these calls is available to review.
Voting for this proposal will place your MKR in support of implementing the changes outlined above.
