1. Weekly Endowment Updates (@karpatkey + @Steakhouse)


March Monthly Report: karpatkey

  • 5.27% APY driven by yields on stables
  • $443,017 in DeFi returns

2. General DAO Updates

Two Live Executable Proposals, both have reached quorum

5.5

  • Funding Request: ENS Public Goods Working Group Term 5 (Q1/Q2)
  • Tally | ENS Proposal
  • The ENS Public Goods Working Group requests funding to support operations until the September 2024 funding window.

5.6

  • Enable Self-Funding for the Endowment
  • Tally | ENS Proposal
  • This proposal outlines a strategic shift allowing the Endowment to autonomously finance its operations. Specifically, it grants the Metagov stewards the authority to withdraw up to 30 ETH monthly from the Endowment, designated for payments to karpatkey and @steakhouse for their services in managing the Endowment.

3. Open Discussion

Frisson from Tally.xyz

  • Current executables on Tally don’t require gas fees to vote, huge improvement
  • Post: Gasless Voting is Live for ENS
  • ENS DAO funded Tally to support this initiative for a year
  • Tally relays transaction for the user and pays gas transaction while doing so
  • Requires ENS registered as wallets primary name
    • Wallet must have at least 100 ENS
    • Disincentive low value activity/ ensure person is a person
  • Relayer Address: https://etherscan.io/address/0xCcDBA906bAB28603b2F53f07D8Ae87afFd063b07
    • ~100 votes so far that Tally has relayed for free
  • Looking into batching, but relayer casts vote immediately, batching requires a delay for votes to be cast
  • Multichain governance: Usually if put DAO on a chain, DAO is stuck on that chain. Tally just introduced multi-gov where user can vote and delegate on any chain through Tally
  • Telegram Contact: @zeroxfrisson

Corina Pascu from Dhive

  • Small Grants applicant, please support
  • Data hub, create accessible location for both onchain and offchain data
  • Launching in June
  • Want to create trusted credentials environment as well as implement notification system so users can get notifications from the DAO
  • Links:

  2. General DAO Updates
    a. Research Into Governance Risks (@avsa)
  3. Open Discussion

14 Participants in Meeting (See list of participants at end of notes)


1. Weekly Endowment Updates (@karpatkey + @Steakhouse)


  • Working on new roles modifier, tool to manage endownment in non-custodial way
    • Ability to audit what’s changing will be more straight forward (code doing what says is doing) through UI
      • Testing going great
      • Tentatively bring to vote 1 May
  • Working on analysis to show how growing endownment so the endownment is self-sustainable and covering all costs for the DAO
    • From an ops perspective the executable votes would be the same, but funds would come from the Endowment instead of the DAO Wallet

2. General DAO Updates

Research Into Governance Risks (@avsa)

  • Over time amount of delegated power has been decreasing despite same number of delegates, need to increase amount of delegated tokens
  • Anyone who closely watches Agora or Tally will have noticed a new ‘delegate’ shooting to the top of the delegate list, veto.ensdao.eth, presently holding over 3.8M delegated tokens. Please don’t be alarmed - this isn’t a governance attack, in fact it’s quite the reverse
  • @avsa recently disclosed to a small group of delegates the existence and practicality of highly concerning governance attacks that could be used to target DAOs including the ENS DAO. Given the viability of these attacks (has happened before!) and the urgency with which they need to be addressed, @nick.eth devised a simple contract that makes it possible for a small group of trusted DAO participants to exercise a large number of “no” votes to veto proposals that risk the integrity of the ENS DAO. To put some weight behind this, ENS Labs has delegated all of its ENS tokens - most of which are being held on behalf of Labs staff - to this account
  • This contract only permits individuals who have been granted permission to use it, it only allows them to vote “no”, and before exercising this power, individuals must agree to a pledge to only use this power to veto proposals that constitute a governance attack on the DAO, or would violate the ENS constitution

Next Steps

  • Need to make sure safer in the mid-term: [Temp Check] Enable CANCEL role on the DAO
  • Proposal for an executable that would grant the role of Canceller to a multisig, controlled by the same people that currently hold the Veto power. This would be a multisig of at least 2 accounts. We take this very seriously and understand that once this multisig has such power it’s hard to reverse it since they can veto any attempt to remove it. In order to have a balance of power the members would sign a pledge to only use the cancel power in an event of an attack or to protect the spirit of the constitution and we are open to discussion on any other measures that can be enacted

Other preventive measures to protect from the attack

  • The profitability of such attack is simply calculated by the amount of total assets in the DAO / (amount of delegated tokens * price of ENS tokens). So any attempt to improve the situation would have to change one of the factors:
    • Assets: The DAO should consider ways to protect the Endowment from any single transaction that takes over. This isn’t as simple as it appears.
    • Delegated tokens: the Metagovernance group has been considering ways to improve the amount of active delegates and will continue to propose new methods of both direct ENS distribution and ENS delegation.
    • Token price: while the DAO’s responsibility is to the ENS system and not the token, it would be healthy if there were ways in which the value of ENS was more tied to the amount of values in it’s management and the present and future revenue of the name system

3. Open Discussion

  • Discussion around upgrading the governance contract, will bring to the agenda next week

  • Next week will have spending report for all the Working Groups

1. Weekly Endowment Updates (@karpatkey + @Steakhouse)


  • Tech team finishing ZRM v2 Migration Proposal, will post when complete during a voting window

2. General DAO Updates Section

Upcoming Proposals

  • Alex Netto proposing giving the allow contract to call the cancel function on the timelock for a social proposal tomorrow
  • This is the next step in safeguarding the DAO against a cryptoeceonomic attack whereby malicious users would take advantage of a lack of voting to pass issues against the best interests of the DAO
  • Will allow DAO to remove the veto contract (DAO using voting power to vote against attacks) which was a temporary solution for a cryptoeconomic attack against the DAO. Con of this solution relies on voting power, which can be overriden by malicious user with more votes
  • Jengajojo: While have reliable contributors today, want to create a DAO that outlasts contributors. Need to put measures in place that decentralize power, current proposal might not accomplish that with a security council
  • Netto: Security council is a short-term solution to security issue
  • Spike: Seems like a step backward in decentralizing the DAO
  • @avsa.eth: Need to stop malicious attempts to hijack the DAO, want to evolve in the future so we can get rid of this proposal
  • @5pence: All security council can do is stop a proposal, can’t create or remove proposals. Just to cancel a malicious activity
  • Jengajojo: Any discussions around delegating tokens in DAO?
  • @5pence: Yes discussions and thoughts about right way to do it are in the forum threads
  • Please bring discussions to the forum when it is posted
  • Another social proposal may be posted tomorrow related to ENS vesting requirements

Bylaws update

  • Have received bylaws proposal, working group will review before posting on the forum for feedback

3. Open Discussion

Q1 Spending Summary posted from @limes: Term 5: Working Group Spending Summary - 2024 Q1

Q1 Meta-Gov Review from @estmcmxci: Meta-Governance Q1 Review: Initiatives, Outcomes, and Future Dir… — marcus

Spike: What were key considerations when deciding between streaming payment services for paying stream providers?
@avsa.eth: Superfluid allowed an open-ended stream that could just be topped-up and put more money in it, others didn’t

2. General DAO Updates Section

@avsa.eth sharing ENS DAO Risk Dashboard

  • Shows cost to attack the DAO; changes due to fluctuations in ENS token price
  • Link: https://dune.com/avsa/governancerisk
  • Ways to reduce risk: Increase delegated ENS and approve Netto’s proposal for a Security Council with the authority to cancel malicious proposals: Snapshot

Two Current Snapshot proposals

  • Security Council: Snapshot
  • ENS Steward Vesting Proposal: Snapshot
    • Ambiguous language around vesting in Snapshot vote, discussion around numbers
      • Netto: All ENS disbursements to stewards will be vested on a linear 24 month schedule from the time of their appointment
      • Netto: For the current term’s stewards, ENS vesting will be scaled retroactively based on the time since their appointment. ~37.5% of ENS will be distributed to stewards directly from the multisig, whilst the remaining ENS will then be deposited into each steward’s vesting contract
    • Eduardo: Poorly written and ambiguous in language, needs clarification
    • Marcus: Need to confirm with @James.eth what his intention was and have Meta-Governance provide a statement that clarifies the position

    • Discussion around possibility of pooling ENS so multiple people could get together and put up for a vote
    • @avsa.eth: Want to make it easier to put things up for a vote, but want to ensure that proposals going up have high chance of passing / create cost for malicious proposals

3. Open Discussion

Newsletter: ENS DAO Journal | ENS DAO Newsletter #61

@avsa.eth: Governance dashboard shows that risk factor of attacking the DAO is lowest in awhile mostly due to increase in the price of ENS. Good news!

Spike: Lots of tools to connect to voting but still think need to increase participation. Uniswap working on initiatives to increase participation through staking, think ENS should think about similar ideas to increase voting participation

  • Discussion around how different incentive schemes can be gamed
  • Jengajojo did research in the past: [Discussion] What an 'effective delegate' means to the ENS DAO
    • DAO needs to consider what is considered “valuable” for DAO participation
    • Please provide feedback in the thread
  • Tally thinking about building liquid version of Unistaker model
    • Will make forum post and get feedback from the community
    • DAOs succeed when token holders receive a return on value/ value of treasury redistibuted
    • Thinking about building a protocol where liquid stake ENS tokens, and voting power could be delegated to the DAO
  • @estmcmxci:
    • an effective delegate 1) understands + follows ens dao constitution 2) adds value as either developer (ens service provider), steward, or as a delegate 3) good represenative in the space

June proposals in consideration:

• Karpatkey Module Upgrade
• CANCEL role
• Meta-gov budget proposal

@limes: Gitcoin round almost completed, will create post once finalized

  • To create a more cohesive framework, Alex Urbelis (@Alexu), ENS Labs’ general counsel, will contribute his expertise. This framework will narrow the project’s scope, focusing on the most applicable and explicitly defined aspects of DAO governance
  • Initial framework will serve as the first iteration of the DAO Bylaws. It will be subject to a social vote proposing their adoption and will likely undergo amendments through future iterations
  • Message with any questions: Telegram: Contact @estmcmxci

7. Upcoming voting window

  • No date set
  • On agenda:
    • Social proposal for Security Council multi-sig and ability to call Cancel Function to protect DAO from governance attack
    • Social proposal for eth.link litigation so DAO can approve ENS Labs reimbursement
    • Karpatkey will submit roles module upgrade proposal
    • Meta-gov budget executable

8. ‘Office Hours’ Session / Kanban

  • Created FigJam to get new participants up to speed on Meta-gov and how operates
  • Seeking feedback
