:bookmark_tabs: Election of Procurement Committee Members (ADPC)

The procurement committee of the Arbitrum DAO was selected through an off-chain vote on Snapshot, and now we know who will be leading this initiative, which is currently active on Tally and for now has received the approval of the DAO just a few days before the voting deadline.

The selected members are Joseph [Immutablelawyer], Paul Imseih, and Bernard Schmid [Areta].

If you would like to know more about the selected members, a pitching session was held on Monday, January 29, 2023, and you can watch the recording here.

:lock: Changes to the Constitution and the Security Council Election Process

The discussion revolves around a proposed amendment to the ArbitrumDAO Constitution and the Security Council (SC) election process.

Aims to extend the election process from 42 to 49 days by adding a 7-day ‘Contender Submission’ stage before the ‘Nominee Selection’ stage. Candidates are required to sign a transaction from their EOA to apply for a Security Council position.

The Constitution will also be updated to correct wording mistakes and to reflect the new election process.

An off-chain proposal is now available on Snapshot and will be open until February 5th.

:dollar: Plurality Labs Milestone 2 Proposal Discussion

The ongoing discussion revolves around a proposal to fund Milestone 2 of the “Thank ARB by Plurality Labs” project, which aims to enhance value creation within the Arbitrum DAO. The proposal entails a significant funding increase, totaling $30 million in ARB on an annual basis, as compared to Milestone 1.

Feedback from main delegates has been shared on the forum, and as a result, a meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 31st at 11:30 am EST, where the community can ask open questions and analyze the proposal.

Experimental Delegate Incentive Test #1


The Arbitrum ecosystem is testing an incentive program to reward delegates who actively participate in governance, with criteria like holding a minimum of 50,000 Voting ARB Tokens, maintaining a historical Tally participation rate over 25%, achieving a monthly participation rate over 60%, completing an application template, and undergoing KYC with the Arbitrum Foundation.


The test used December 2023 data to evaluate delegate participation and determine eligibility for compensation.

And you can see it here.

Introducing the ArbitrumDAO Transparency Commission Work Group Charter & Pilot Program


This initiative is designed to establish a high standard for transparency within the ArbitrumDAO ecosystem. The goal is to build trust, enhance collaboration, and ensure that community members can make informed decisions


A pilot program will run for 4 to 6 weeks to gain insight into the current landscape within the DAO and organize the work group. Regular updates on the project’s status will be provided voluntarily.
