MIP61 - Creation of a MORPHO Rewards Committee Multisig

MIP - Creation of a MORPHO Rewards Committee Multisig

  • Author(s): Morpho Association

Context

The MORPHO token has been successfully used to bootstrap markets on Morpho Blue and formerly on Morpho Optimizers. To date, 4.5% of the total supply of MORPHO tokens has been distributed to users.

However, managing MORPHO rewards is a slow and cumbersome process, requiring frequent DAO votes and many operational tasks for the DAO multisig.

To reduce the operational burden, the association proposes creating a Rewards Committee Multisig responsible for handling MORPHO rewards as part of Morpho reward programs.

Specification

The Multisig would be a 3/5 Safe contract managed by 5 members of the Morpho Association.

The Rewards Committee Multisig will be responsible for carrying out the reward decision approved by the DAO by vote. The DAO Multisig will ensure that they have sufficient MORPHO to ensure these operations.

Next Steps

If the vote passes, the next steps will be followed to make this happen:

  1. Creation of the Multisig
  2. Whitelisting of this Multisig to transfer MORPHO tokens by the DAO

Gm from Aragon!

Aragon is a proud governance tooling service provider of the Steakhouse Financial vaults on Morpho, a depositor in several Morpho vaults, and ecosystem partner. We would be more than happy to provide the wallet based multisig for the Rewards Committee from our existing tech-stack. Some benefits include:

  • Fully human readable UI - decreasing risk
  • Easier to use UI with finance page
  • ENS subdomain name - morpho.dao.eth
  • Custom actions - this custom action on our smart contract composer would allow for an easier way to send rewards to the pools and require no audit (to be scoped by product team if required)
  • Dapp Connect - DAO to dApp action builder

A final benefit of this deployment is its ability to change over-time. Built on Aragon OSx this multisig if the Morpho DAO decided and accepted by multisig signers could adapt in the future to any other governance methodology allowing the Morpho Rewards Committee to adapt as market factors change in the industry. This is due to its modular architecture.

If you would like to test the Aragon App you can here.
Aragon X’s own operational multisig.

Aragon is committed to serving the needs of the Morpho Association and the Morpho ecosystem with governance tooling. We’d appreciate any feedback or questions.

Merci beaucoup!

Hey, I’m a little late to this thread, but I wanted to highlight how oSnap by UMA can help meet this proposals need without using any new platforms and requiring minimal effort.

oSnap is a governance tool used as the Guardian on B.Protocol and Block Analitica vaults. It also secures $800M of treasury funds for 54 DAOs for over 20 DAOs including CoW DAO, Shapeshift and the Arbitrum LTIPP program.

oSnap allows for trustless onchain Safe transaction execution based on Snapshot proposals. oSnap has an Snapshot add-on and Safe app that takes only a few minutes to integrate into the Morpho Snapshot space and the new Rewards Committee Multisig. Afterwards, Snapshot proposals can optionally turn on oSnap onchain execution and specify transaction data to include with the proposal. oSnap’s transaction builder matches the Safe transaction builder and includes Tenderly simulation.

Voters then review the Snapshot proposal and can see the associated transaction data for full transparency. If the vote meets quorum and passes, the transaction data is sent to UMA’s optimistic oracle for verification before being executed from the Safe. All proposals sent to the oracle are reviewed by a decentralized network of disputers as well as UMA’'s open source bot and 3 members of our trained verification team.

The onchain transactions needed to execute a proposal are all permissionless, but also automated and sponsored by UMA. So there is no organizing of multisig signers or need to pay for gas fees. It’s just automated, verified onchain execution from the platforms you already use.

If interested, please check out our docs at docs.uma.xyz/developers/osnap or reach out to learn more.

I think the solutions above are both interesting options that need to be considered for a next iteration of the Morpho Governance setup. Thank you for mentioning them.
