StableLab is a governance firm focused on professional delegation, DAO framework design, and product development. We work with various projects, from the ones just starting their journey to decentralization to the most prominent DeFi protocols.

Our systematic framework for DAOs covers governance methodologies, decentralized workforce, implementation, documentation, communication, and community engagement. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, but we provide a framework of principles and tools we have developed throughout our experience.

We scale DAOs sustainably.


We are the leading professional delegate team with a track record across major DeFi protocols, including MakerDAO, Optimism, Aave, 1inch, Balancer, Element, InstaDapp, Hop, and more.

We pioneer delegation work through high governance standards, extensive research, hands-on expertise, and the consistent use of a code of conduct. Pushing forward web3 and DeFi since 2018, StableLab’s co-founders previously spent 3.5 years at the Maker Foundation.

Proposal: AIP-1: Arbitrum Improvement Proposal Framework

Vote: Against

Rationale: We voted against this proposal due to the lack of transparency and rationale behind many of the aspects of the proposal including the “special grants” and the 750M ARB allocation. We would like to see this proposal broken into smaller proposals so they can be discussed with the community.

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

Vote: Against

Rationale: While sending the 750M ARB could have been communicated more effectively, It is reasonable to give the Arbitrum Foundation runway for the next few years, especially with the implementation of AIP 1.1 providing more structure and security to the funds.

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

Vote: Against

Rationale: This is a duplicate proposal see our rationale for the original AIP 1.05.

Proposal: AIP-1.1 - Lockup, Budget, Transparency

Vote: For

Rationale: It is important to ensure a proper budget is in place so the foundation is held to a high standard and can have adequate runway for the next few years. It is also vital for the Foundation funds to be transparent to prevent mismanagement.

Proposal: AIP-1.2 - Foundation and DAO Governance

Vote: For

Rationale: We support the initiative to create a constitution that creates accountability and provides transparency. We also support changing the proposal threshold from 5M to 1M ARB
