Proposal: AIP 1.05: Return 700M $ARB to the DAO Treasury

Vote: Against

Rationale: This is a duplicate proposal and we are aware that sending 750M ARB could have been communicated more effectively and open, It is reasonable to give the Arbitrum Foundation the budget necessary for the next few years, especially with the implementation of AIP 1.1 providing more structure.

Proposal: AIP-1.1 - Lockup, Budget, Transparency

Vote: For

Comment : We are in favor of this proposal since it offers clarity to the DAO and a positive way forward

We believe that this proposal, which aims to allocate funds towards the continued development and maintenance of the Arbitrum network, is crucial for its long-term success. Additionally, we appreciate the transparency provided in the proposal, including a clear breakdown of the proposed allocation and the rationale behind it. The Daostewards view this proposal as a positive step forward for the Arbitrum network and we fully support it.

Proposal: AIP-1.2 - Foundation and DAO Governance

Vote: For

Comment : We are in favor of this proposal since it offers clarity to the DAO and a positive way forward

Refined: Arbitrum proposes establishing a governance model for the DAO via a Foundation, aligning with our community-driven principle. We, as Daostewards, support this proposal because it ensures transparency, accountability, and clear roles and responsibilities for DAO stakeholders, improving efficiency and coordination. Our vote advances the goal of building a thriving and sustainable decentralized ecosystem.


Thanks for the update fren.

Proposal : AIP 4: Update Security Council Election Start Date to Ensure Time for Security Audit

Proposal : AIP 6 Update Security Council Election Start Date to Ensure Time for Security Audit

AIP 9: Arbitrum Short-term Incentive Program

Voted: For

Rationale: This empowers the DAO by accelerating network growth, fostering innovation, and gathering valuable data. The program ensures accountability and governance while supporting the Arbitrum ecosystem’s expansion.


Proposal: Empowering Early Contributors: The Community Arbiter Proposal

Voted: Abstain

Rationale: Rewarding early contributions is always good but without clear documentation of who these Arbiters are and most (if not all) of their contributions, DAOStewards vote to abstain.


Proposal: Build Optimal Onboarding for STIP Teams (BOOST)

Voted: Against

Rationale: With Galxe — set to receive STIP funding — offering services that overlap, we see little to no reason to go ahead with this proposal. DAOStewards vote against this proposal.


Rabbithole was not included in round 1 of STIP btw.

Proposal: Activate ARB Staking
Voted: Against & Lowest Amount

Rationale: Funding initiatives that drive user engagement, and directly contribute to ecosystem growth will be a better way to manage the funds requested for the staking rewards

Proposal: Non-Constitutional AIP: Arbitrum Security Enhancement Fund
Voted: Against

Rationale: Was discontinued with talks about the procurement framework in motion

Proposal: Consolidate Security Proposals into a RFP Process
Voted: For

Rationale: Creating a framework for security proposals is good. It brings structure and leaves room for various high-quality security providers to interact with the ArbitrumDAO

Proposal: The Arbitrum Coalition
Voted: Abstain

Rationale: The concept behind the Arbitrum coalition is great and needed. However, prior to L2BEAT stepping down as DAO Advocate, there were centralization concerns, and thus DAOStewards voted to abstain

Proposal: Proposal to Backfund Successful STIP Proposals
Voted: Against

Rationale: We were not in support of this proposal. We would have preferred to see how the projects that already received STIP funds perform before sending out more funds

Proposal: Funding Gas Rebate and Trading Competition Program to Amplify Arbitrum’s Ecosystem Growth
Voted: Against

Rationale: We believe the timing of this proposal was all wrong. It should have been included when the STIP was live rather than coming as a stand-alone proposal

Proposal: AIP: ArbOS Version 11
Voted: For

Rationale: We were in support of the changes and upgrades to the Arbitrum chain seeing they have been audited

Proposal: Timeline Extension for STIP and Backfund Grantees
Voted: Voted Extend for both

Rationale: After reviewing the proposal, and sighting the extreme variations in KYC timing and inappropriate timing for the backfund STIPs, it only made sense to extend the deadline

Proposal: Experimental Incentive System for Active ArbitrumDAO Delegates
Voted: For

Rationale: We voted in favor of incentivizing delegates for their participation in the ArbitrumDAO. We have been in a few communities that implemented this and have seen how such programs foster more active participation, bringing in newer contributors in the process

Proposal: Establish the ‘Arbitrum Research & Development Collective’
Voted: Abstain then Lowest to Highest

Rationale: We abstained and then voted from lowest to highest. If the ARDC should be implemented, we should start with the lowest possible cost iteration, and see how that turns out before pushing to scale

[Non-Constitutional]: Establish the ArbitrumDAO Procurement Committee
Voted: For

Rationale: Establishing the Procurement Committee adds a needed layer of structure to the ArbitrumDAO. DAOStewards vote in favor of this proposal.

Constitutional AIP - Security Council Improvement Proposal
Voted: For

Rationale: Sighting the potential risk of removing the lower threshold, DAOStewards votes to increase the multi-sig threshold to 9/12 as this is a more straightforward approach to tackling the Stage requirement

[Constitutional] Changes to the Constitution and the Security Council Election Process
Voted: For

Rationale: Providing better wording is essential to ensure clarity in the Constitution and the community at large. DAOStewards voted in favor of these changes.

AIP: Batch Poster Manager and Sequencer Inbox Finality Fix
Voted: For

Rationale: These proposed changes are highly welcome as it doesn’t affect the original model but add a layer of security. DAOStewards votes in favor of this proposal.

Empowering Early Contributors: The Community Arbiter Proposal 2.0
Voted: Abstain

Rationale: When this proposal dropped last time out, some clarifications were requested by the DAO. These weren’t still tended to so DAOStewards voted to abstain.

[Tally] Arbitrum Stable Treasury Endowment Program

Voted: For

We were in favor of this proposal.

Exploring the RWA vertical is a positive onlook to treasury diversification. We believe the Arbitrum Treasury and Sustainability WG was appointed to bring these sorts of ideas to life so we can learn along the way. At the end of STEP 1, we can review what worked and what didn’t.

[Tally] Empowering Early Contributors: The Community Arbiter Proposal 2.0

Voted: For

This time around, there was a more detailed breakdown of Arbiters application for retroactive rewards so we voted in favor of the proposal.

Voted: For

We maintained our support from Snapshot and looking forward to the implementation of the suggested upgrades.

[Tally] Request for Continuation of the Arbitrum DDA Program Request

Voted: For

In need of clarifications before Tally but support the initiative.

[Snapshot] GovHack at ETH CC (Brussels)

Voted: For

We are supportive of this proposal. There have also been a history of success with previous gov hacks so that further solidifies this rationale.

[Snapshot] Proposal for Approval of DeDaub as the ADPC Security Advisor

Voted: Nil

Unfortunately, I missed the vote deadline but signaling the support for the proposal nevertheless. We would be voting in favor if it goes to an onchain vote although that is unlikely at this time.

Adding DeDaub as a security SME to the ADPC is vital and required so we glad to see the team move to secure their services.

[Tally] Double-Down on STIP Successes (STIP-Bridge)

Voted: Against

We voted against this proposal during temp check and did the same during the onchain vote. We would have preferred to at least see the results of the LTIPP before discussing what a STIP-bridge could look like.

[Snapshot] Pilot Phase: M&A for Arbitrum DAO

Voted: For

We are in favor of this proposal. Conducting a pilot program is always a good first step and we will love to see the results at the end of the eight weeks.

[Tally] GovHack at ETH CC (Brussels)

Voted: For

We maintained our stance from the temp check, voting in favor during the onchain vote. We can’t wait to see the fruits of the gov brainstorms on Forum.

Voted: For

We are in favor of this proposal as it will undoubtedly safeguard the DAO’s interests based on current expenditure analysis.

We are in favor of this proposal. We commend the LTIPP council’s efforts and trust their judgment.
