[SEP #3] Towards clarity on milestones before voting on enabling transferability again

Which topic do you mean?

If you mean updates regarding this proposal: Voting ended on the 27th Dec. Option 3 “won”.

Here the link: Snapshot

@theobtl Should we start posting links to snapshot as soon as the votes are set-up? Would make the UX better. Been looking for the links many times myself.

Agree, I’ll start posting a comment once an SEP is live on Snapshot, another comment when the results are in (similar to OP, BitDAO). Alternatively or additionally, I could also edit the main proposal and add a Snapshot link up top (like ENS does it) for even more visibility, but that would change the proposal edit history and might be confused with contentual changes.

For now, I’d suggest I post just comments in each SEP in phase 2, but happy to discuss and iterate. Example below:

This proposal [SEP #3] Towards clarity on milestones before voting on enabling transferability again has moved to phase 2 for a Snapshot vote:


Start date of the vote: Dec 20, 2022, 11:36 AM UTC
End date of the vote: Dec 27, 2022, 11:36 AM UTC

Following the Snapshot vote, the quorum was met and the proposal was accepted with “Option 3: Milestones A, B, C, D and E”, whereas:

  • Milestone A: The claim period has passed
  • Milestone B: An SEP on a constitution has been ratified
  • Milestone C: An SEP on a governance framework has been ratified
  • Milestone D: An SEP on a resource allocation framework has been ratified
  • Milestone E: An SEP on token utility has been ratified

Is there a post discussing the governance framework here? The current governance process is so inefficient that it is a bit depressing. I think before reconsidering the distribution of unclaimed tokens, maybe the improvement of the governance framework will be more important, just like [SEP#3] as stated in Milestone C. “Suggesting a strategic, high-level approach to SafeDAO’s governance principles, processes and choice of tooling” should probably be at the top of the forum discussion, maybe someone can open a thread for a related discussion.

There is not yet a mature proposal on a governance framework yet, as some underlying questions around SafeDAO’s scope of governance are still unclear. When it comes to smaller fixes, that may be worth a stand-alone proposal at this point before we get to a more extensive, SafeDAO-customised governance framework later.

For those smaller fixes, I created a thread here for us to collect problems and discuss what should be improved with our governance process:


Hi, are there any further discussions or actions planned to enable transferability in the near future?


Agreed, hope for more milestone updates, especially the governance framework :disappointed_relieved: :disappointed_relieved:

Thank you for writing this! That was exactly my thought too.

The current status is as follows:

Milestone A: reached - Claim Period has ended in December 2022

Milestone B: reached - Constitution was accepted by DAO vote [SEP #4] SafeDAO Constitution

Milestone C: in discussion - Towards a Governance Framework for SafeDAO

Milestone D: in discussion - [Discussion] Safe DAO Resource Allocation Model (OBRA)

Milestone E: in discussion - Token Utility: SAFE Token Utility Proposal

Feel free to contribute where you best seem fit. All help is welcome. :slight_smile:


Would it be possible to consider establishing a new proposal to revise [SEP#3] milestone achievement on safe transferability, as many related grants and resource models are currently tied to safe to be tranferable issues, pre-approval transferability may be reduced Difficulty associated with subsequent operations.


Please when can we expect SafeDAO to enable transferability it seems we’re too quiet!!!


This was two month ago. Three milestones left “in discussion” have these been reached? Really would appreciate some updates on the progress.

Hope so, as @theobtl on a career break, have to wait for his comeback safedao milestone to make progress.

@Boris, Did Theo communicate publicly that he is on a career break? According to his LinkedIn it seems he’s still at Safe…

Not publicly discussed, but he updated the info on his twitter bio.

So why doesn’t someone else take over if this guy is on a career break?

From my understanding this morning the position has been filled and the new SEF member is being onboarded. Hopefully SEF will make an official update to provide more information.


Maybe we should just write proposal seeking Milestone D removed.

It’s annoying to see the last time someone talk about it was 7 months ago (9th February)


Hi @CaptainTee, check out this thread. Resource allocation framework is in Phase 0. We also had a governance call last week on Discord where we’ll post the notes.
