About Proposals

Proposals are the means by which changes are made to the status quo. There are two types of proposals:

  1. Social Proposals: offchain proposals that ask for the agreement of the DAO on a social consideration that cannot be enforced onchain.
  2. Executable Proposals: onchain proposals that execute code related to the ENS Protocol and ENS DAO smart contracts, as voted on by the DAO.

[5.7][Social] Security Council

The primary mission of ENS DAO is to govern the protocol and allocate resources in line with its constitution and objectives. However, changing economic dynamics make the DAO vulnerable to attacks aimed at draining its treasury. This proposal seeks approval from the ENS DAO to counter governance attacks by creating a veto role (veto.ensdao.eth), endowed with approximately 3.8 million $ENS delegated from ENS Labs. This role will be controlled by a multisig wallet pertaining to a trusted group to veto proposals that threaten the DAO’s integrity or violate its constitution. It also introduces a CANCEL role, assigned to the same multisig wallet.
