Arbitrum Stable Treasury Endowment Program


Arbitrum benefits from a large treasury but must start working towards more sustainable treasury management. This initiative is a first step towards long-term sustainability of management and diversification as it will help to establish procedures and structures that we can continue to develop on.

Additionally this program enables Arbitrum to enter the RWA space, an important narrative during this cycle the program could incentivize institutional players to get involved with Arbitrum.

For the reasons above Savvy DAO votes FOR.

Savvy DAO has voted FOR Empowering Early Contributors: The community Arbiter Proposal 2.0


  1. Acknowledging Early Efforts: The Arbiters were essentially the backbone of community management and support during Arbitrum’s early days, before formal roles were established. Given the pivotal role they played, it makes perfect sense to compensate them now. It’s not just about fairness, but about recognizing and valuing their contributions which were crucial in getting things off the ground.
  2. Promoting Active Governance: Although it’s tough to put a number on their exact impact, bringing Arbiters into the governance process is a smart move. They have a wealth of experience and a deep commitment to the platform which can significantly benefit the ecosystem’s strategic decisions.
  3. Celebrating Community Values: This proposal isn’t just administrative—it’s a statement. By allocating ARB tokens to these early contributors, we’re living up to our ideals of community, appreciation, and equity. It’s about saying thank you in a way that really matters.
  4. Setting the Stage for Future Participation: We see this proposal as a special case of giving back to those who have given so much. It’s not about setting a precedent but is a well-deserved nod to their unique contributions. Plus, we’re keen to see them stay active, helping steer the DAO with their insights and experience.

In essence, our vote is driven by a deep respect for the foundational work of the Arbiters, the strategic need to involve them in governance, and our commitment to the values of collaboration and fairness.

Savvy DAO votes FOR “Expand Tally Support for the Arbitrum DAO” for the following reasons:

  1. Proven Track Record and Commitment: Tally has been a reliable partner, effectively handling our onchain governance, security council elections, and delegation processes since the inception of the DAO. Their proposal to expand support will build on this strong foundation, increasing efficiency and responsiveness.
  2. Enhancing Governance Tools: By upgrading the Governor contracts and integrating new functionalities such as partial delegation and shielded voting, Tally is set to significantly improve the proposal process. These technical advancements will make governance more accessible and intuitive for all members of the DAO.
  3. Increasing Social and Technical Inclusivity: The proposed improvements aim to lower barriers for participation in governance, allowing contributors from various backgrounds and technical skill levels to engage more easily. This aligns perfectly with our values of inclusivity and user-focus.
  4. Detailed and Transparent Process Improvements: Tally plans to link forum proposal posts with Tally proposals, improve real-time updates via a Tally Discourse bot, and enhance the visibility of Security Council actions. These steps will ensure greater transparency and streamline governance operations.
  5. Focus on Long-Term Success: Research into partial delegation and shielded voting demonstrates Tally’s commitment to the DAO’s longevity and success. These initiatives are tailored to address specific needs within the Arbitrum ecosystem and are not just generic solutions that can be applied elsewhere.
  6. Budget Justification and Efficiency: The financial aspect of the proposal is well-justified with a clear breakdown of costs associated with each improvement. This level of transparency and the specific allocation of funds to reputable partners like Scopelift ensure that financial resources are used effectively.

In conclusion, this proposal not only strengthens our governance infrastructure but also enhances our community’s capacity to engage in more secure and effective decision-making. Voting in favor of this proposal is a vote towards a more robust, inclusive, and technically advanced Arbitrum DAO.

Savvy DAO has voted FOR the " Request for Continuation of the Arbitrum DDA Program Request"
The DDA plays an important part in our ecosystem as it allows us to move quickly and experiment with more grants. While I do not love the current success metrics I expect the team would improve. I would encourage the DDA team to do a retrospective and perhaps ask for additional funds to see how to improve their system.

However, it is most important for the DAO to keep moving. =)
