Notes

A) General DAO Update (Budgets this month)
We are working to finalize the budget, will be posted on the forum by the end of the week from all working groups.

B) Endowment & Treasury Management
Santi, Karpatkey:
The Endowment kick-off document will soon be posted to the forum, which will request an executable vote to start the endowment. The post will include funding details and ask the DAO to initiate the endowment by transferring funding for the first of three installments needed to reach 100% of funding goal. The post will specify what specific permissions will be granted to Karpatkey.

In order to make it easier for ENS DAO, Karpatkey will create a new safe and apply a preset with permissions, with involvement from the ENS stewards. Once established, Katpatkey will be removed from the safe permissions, and the ENS stewards will be added.

Santiago, Karpatkey:
We want to be as transparent as possible. Every permission that we grant in the preset will be bulletproof. Each permission consists of a target address, function signature, and restrictions on the arguments. We have done very detailed work to make the permissions as safe as possible, to ensure there are no possible vulnerabilities or exploits. We worked on these with Gnosis Guild members.

Q&A:

Katherine:
The vote is scheduled to start on Friday. When will this document be posted on the forum?

Santi:
We would like to post it in the next couple of days. We would like to allow at least a week after posting the document before voting.

Simona:
We would like to have time for the stewards and community to review the document for at least five days before putting it to a vote.

When do you expect the second audit to be complete, and results shared?

Santiago:
We are waiting for the publishing of the final report. No isses have been found and no fixes are needed, but we are waiting for the formal disclosure.

Simona:
Will it perhaps be done in a week?

Santiago:
I can’t say for certain.

Simona:
That would be helpful if that were delivered before the vote. If there is something that could be presented, that would be great.

Santiago:
Perhaps we could show some preliminary report. I will ask if a draft can be delivered.

C) DAO Tooling
Watch out for a proposal related to exchanging $ENS to USDC from the treasury funds to fund this term’s working groups budgets.

D) Reserved for Open Discussion
David Galindo from valary.xyz introduced himself and will be active in endowment discussions going forward.
