August 9, 2021

A new collateral type, UNI-V2-DAI-USDC, will be added to the Maker Protocol if this proposal passes. UNI-V2-DAI-USDC will be added with the following parameters in the UNIV2DAIUSDC-A vault type. These parameters match those in the previous governance poll.
This poll allows the MakerDAO governance community to signal their support or opposition to adding UNI-V2-DAI-USDC (UniswapV2 DAI-USDC LP Token) as a collateral type in the Maker Protocol with the parameters below:
Liquidations for UNIV2DAIUSDC-A will be disabled as both the DAI and USDC Oracles will return a constant price of $1. For this reason, auction parameters have been omitted.
Please review the following forum threads containing information about UNI-V2-DAI-USDC (UniswapV2 DAI-USDC LP Token) to inform your position before voting.
A new collateral type, UNI-V2-ETH-USDT, will be added to the Maker Protocol if this proposal passes. UNI-V2-ETH-USDT will be added with the following parameters in the UNIV2ETHUSDT-A vault type. These parameters match those in the previous governance poll.

Therefore, if this Executive proposal passes the following will occur:
This Executive Vote will continue until the number of votes in favor surpasses the votes in favor of the currently leading proposal. This is a continuous approval vote.
If this executive vote does not pass within 30 days then it will expire and have no effect on the Maker Protocol, even if it should later pass.
Note that this proposal will include an office-hours modifier that means it can only be cast between 14:00 and 21:00 UTC, Monday - Friday. This is to ensure that at least some auction keepers are available to react to unforeseen issues with their bots in the event of early liquidations.
Community debate on these topics can be found on the MakerDAO governance forum. Please review any linked threads to inform your position before voting.
Additionally, these changes may have been discussed further in recent Governance calls. Video for these calls is available to review.
Voting for this proposal will place your MKR in support of implementing the changes outlined above.
