Based on the impact and insights from the Arbitrum DDA program, the proposal is to renew the program with a budget of $4 million for two quarters. The domain allocators will use this budget to fund proposals that align with Arbitrum’s roadmap and the same domain allocations as before, such as New Protocol Ideas, Gaming, Dev Tooling and Education, Growth, Community, and Events.

:woman_judge:t2: Some Governance Discussions:

[Proposal] Fix Fee Oversight ArbOS v20 “Atlas”


This proposal addresses an oversight in the ArbOS Version 20 “Atlas” upgrade related to transaction fees on the Arbitrum network. It suggests reducing the L1 surplus fee per byte from 32 gwei to 0 and the L2 base fee from 0.1 gwei to 0.01 gwei to better align with the upcoming Dencun upgrade on Ethereum and the configurations implemented in Arbitrum Nova.

The changes aim to lower fees for users and potentially increase transaction throughput, although they would reduce the short-term revenue for the ArbitrumDAO. The proposal seeks a temperature check and ultimately a vote from the ArbitrumDAO, with the Security Council executing the changes if approved.


A temp check voting is about to happen and available in snapshot.
