Multisig Committee Formation


The SSV DAO multisig committee acts as the safekeepers of the DAOs treasury and provides checks and balances for votes passed by the community. This proposal aims to solidify the multi-sig committee responsibilities, compensation, members and work procedures.


One of the DAOs formation cornerstones is the multisig committee. The original construct included high profile members of the crypto community that take the role of distributing control over the DAOs treasury. At present, there are 7 (6+1 Master of Coin) multisig holders.

Over the past year the DAO has taken more areas of responsibility and governance has become more nuanced. In its current state, the DAO requires a more professional, highly involved body of custodians to execute treasury related decisions.

For that reason, we are required to introduce a complete overhaul for the way the multisig committee is structured. The new formation will include a professional team of individuals which answer at least 1 of 3 categories:

  1. Highly engaged community members which have shown dedication to the protocol and its cause for a long period of time
  2. Tech savvy individuals which understand DV technology to a high degree
  3. Voted in by a majority of the multi sig holders to replace one of the existing holders

The combination of high engagement with deep understanding of the technology behind the protocol will be pivotal for optimizing stewardship and making sure the multisig committee safeguards the DVT public good over the long run.

Updates to the Committee structure

The number of signers will not surpass 8+1 master of coin and will not be less than 5 signers and 1 master of coin.

Didn’t look at the group’s growth implications for SSV. Paying that much to this group every year…

We are happy to expand on our reasoning for the salary amount if you’d like, but this role isn’t about “growth”. It’s about being the group trusted with the keys to the treasury. We are the final executors of the DAO’s actions and the last line of defense. You should vote for this if you trust us, not because you agree with our plans to grow SSV.
