Active and Upcoming On-Chain Polls and Executive Votes

Executive Vote: Activate SAI Stability Fee Adjustment

Supporting this issue will:

This is part of the roadmap in settling the global supply of SAI as it reaches end of life. It incentivizes faster repayment of CDP vaults held as SAI collateral with lower stability fees that increase over time. The goal is to achieve global settlement in six months time. Additonal measures include decresing the debt ceiling as the end of life approaches. SAI stability fees will be refunded upon global settlement. This is coming in the wake of the newly released multi-collateral DAI. SAI holders are encouraged to migrate these coins to DAI as soon as possible. For more information:

Executive Vote: Activate DSR Spread, Debt Ceilings, and DAI Stability Fee Adjustments

Supporting this issue will:

This helps to keep the DAI peg near 1:1 with the USD as the SAI global settlement moves forward. SAI CDP migration efforts to DAI are continued and these increases support the needed liquidity. Lowering the SAI debt ceiling sooner than later supports the six month global settlement time frame goal. Additionally, the DAI ETH debt ceiling is currently around 98% of capacity. When reached, no more DAI can be minted.
