Welcome to the Governance Forum of the SuperUMAn DAO

Welcome to the Governance Forum of the SuperUMAn DAO.

The core mission of the SuperUMAns is to communicate the true power of universal access to markets and its benefits to the world.

This forum allows for proposals to be signalled, receive feedback and obtain a soft-consensus through polling, prior to it being put to a formal vote.

The full governance mechanism for proposals, including stages, majority and quorum is detailed below.

Details of Governance Mechanism

The governance mechanism is comprised of a four step process, involving Discord, Discourse and Snapshot. These will be linked together with Discord providing access to Discourse governance forums to identify the membership tiers which will be reflected in Discord roles in order that the members meeting the quorum requirement can be identified. The minimum amount of time it would take for a proposal to be passed is 8 days.

Stage 1 - Optional tempcheck
There will be a recommended temp check on Discord, general support, feedback suggestions, collaboration on proposal,

Stage 2 - Compulsory Signal
A rough proposal will be posted on Discourse, to gather feedback including likes. If the post receives 5 likes, it can then pass to the formal proposal stage. If the proposal has not received 5 likes after 7 days then the topic will be closed. Anyone can make a proposal. Proposals will be announced on a Discord announcements channel.

Stage 3 - Formal Proposal and poll
A formal proposal on Discourse can be submitted once the rough proposal in the above stage has received 5 likes. The proposal may be slightly altered, however it should be transparently in the same spirit. This proposal will include a poll with three elements

  • Yes
  • More Discussion
  • No

In order for a proposal to pass to a Snapshot vote a simple majority (51% of votes cast) is required for Yes. In order for this vote to be valid there is a quorum of 10% SuperUMAns and 3 UMAsters, with the poll running for 5-7 days. Formal proposals will be announced on a Discord announcements channel

Stage 4 - Snapshot vote
If there is more than 51% for yes in the poll in the stage above, the proposal then moves to a Snapshot vote, comprised of a crisp summary of the proposal with link(s) to discussion on Discourse. This snapshot vote requires a 51% majority and a quorum of 50% of the number of people who voted on the discourse poll. The snapshot will be open for 3-7 days.

Implementation of Governance Decisions
SafeSnap will be used to implement the onchain proposal managed by the Governance team.
