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

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


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


  • Montly Report posted: $350,000 made in April using DeFi protocols, endownment fluctuates due to price of ETH
  • Working on post to share shortly that will include additional analysis including breakdown of what assets gained under “APR”
  • This passed proposal allows fees to come directly from endownment: Tally | ENS Proposal
  • Working group will get ZRM v2 migration proposal up for vote no later than sometime in June

2. General DAO Updates Section

Kent Fenwick from Agora
Four intiatives working on:

  • Proposal Lifecycle Management: Allow anybody to draft proposals, send to sponsor to review, and allow anybody with enough ENS to put up vote, notifications system and integrations into systems included
    • 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
  • Gas relay for free Agora Votes: Similar to Tally, abstract away costs of voting
  • Visualize streams for vendors: Explore vendors, how much paid, etc.
  • Gov Upgrade for Redelegation of Coinbase delegation: CB has large amount of delegated ENS tokens, difficult to delegate given how tokens are stored, proposal to CB to allow tokens to be delegated

3. Open Discussion

Veto Contract Discussion from @SpikeWatanabe.eth

  • Example of malicious attack against DAO happening at Compound, understand security risks against DAOs
  • But feels like a step backward from the multi-sig that was governing ENS in the past
  • Suggestion: Delegate incentivization to stay informed about everything happening at the DAO
  • Alex Netto: Finishing writing veto contract, next steps after deployed are around increasing DAO participation

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

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


  • Diversification might limit upsides, but also limits downsides

2. General DAO Updates Section

Active Proposal - Confirm Members of Security Council

  • Proposal Here: Snapshot
  • Following the successful passing of the EP5.7, this proposal aims to confirm the 8 individuals who will form the Security Council with the permissions defined in EP5.7. The Security Council will be responsible for protecting the organization from potential governance attacks by having the ability to cancel malicious proposals using the SecurityCouncil smart contract.
  • Current large amount of abstain as possible members of council need to abstain from vote and they are large token holders, abstain counts toward quorum not towards yes. If quorum met then just a matter of yes vs. no
  • Need to confirm list of names of security council before moving to an exectuable. Executable window will open once this proposal passes on Friday evening or Saturday
    • 2 other executables in pipeline for launch this week: Funding for meta-gov and upgrade to DAO Funding contract v2

@avsa.eth on governance risk

  • ENS price increase has caused DAO governance attack risk to go down, very low risk. Still important to have security council

Corina Pascu demoing Dhive.io

  • Forum post with video here: [Feedback Request] Dhive.io - Governance Data Hub
  • Striving to be next governance data tool aggregating on and offchain data, make simple to understand to regular users
  • Officially indexed ENS data
  • Notifications popular feature: Subscribe to updates to a DAO, decentralized notifications through push protocol

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


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


  • Past few years run healthy cash-flow surplus
  • 2024 expenses will be close to double of 2023, so will bring net cash flows to ~0
    • Costs of ENS v2 is a growth expense, not necessarily will have those costs for all years ahead, also L2 could bring in more revenue
  • Endowment returns will enable cash flows to be positive. Options: Increase AUM and Increase returns (increase risk)
  • Can also cut parts of the budget to increase positive cash flows
  • At some point could use endowment to finance operations (this is the end game)
  • Finance Dashboard: https://dune.com/steakhouse/ens-steakhouse
  • Discussion around feasibility of conducting streaming payments from the endowment

2. General DAO Updates Section

Review of 3 Upcoming Proposals

  • All executable and onchain
      1. Assign permissions to allow the 8 security council to utilize the cancel contract multi-sig (malicious proposals)
      1. Roles module upgrade v2 setup permissions for the endownment
      1. Meta-gov funding request
  • Plan is to open vote for tomorrow

Kanban discussion by @estmcmxci.eth


3. Open Discussion

  • Security Update
    • https://dune.com/avsa/governancerisk
      50% attack on the DAO is currently not profitable, having a ROI of 70%. A social attack purchasing 5M tokens would be slightly profitable at the moment without the “CANCEL COUNCIL” being active

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




  • Price of ETH, fees, and other variables change these models
  • Goal is to have a clear investment statement/policy around exposure to ETH and other variables including how much runway to hold in stablecoins (2 years standard, currently at 4-5 years of stables)
  • Endowment is very healthy, much better position than most DAOs
  • Discussion around moving unused wallet funds into endowment to earn interest, opportunity cost to not having larger endowment. Working on forum post to share shortly
  • Stakewise financial report for June: ENS Financial Reporting by Steakhouse - #24 by Steakhouse

2. General DAO Updates Section

Executable proposal 5.11

Executable proposal 5.12

  • Tally | ENS | [EP 5.12] Roles Modifier V2 Migration & Updates to Endowment Permissions
  • This proposal aims to roll out an updated version of the Zodiac Roles Modifier module. The new version improves usability and transparency of treasury management operations. Upon approval, the Roles Modifier v2 module will be activated.
  • Furthermore, this proposal requests authorization from the DAO to revise the permissions policy. A notable change includes enabling swapping actions on CoW Swap while the other permissions primarily focus on eliminating obsolete actions and protocols, and refining parameters within the existing permissions.
