Executive Vote: Lower the Stability fee by 2% to a total of 17.5% per year

May 17, 2019

The Maker Foundation Interim Risk Team has placed an Executive Vote into the voting system, which will enable the community to enact a new Dai Stability Fee of 17.5%.

The Executive Vote (FAQ) will continue until the number of votes surpasses the total in favor of the previous Executive Vote. This is a continuous approval vote.


The need to decrease the Stability Fee was discussed in the Governance call on Thursday, May 16. Please review the VideoAudioTranscript (delayed by 24 to 48 hours), and the online discussion to inform your position before voting.

Key factors under consideration for altering the Stability Fee are:

  • Exchange price hovers above $1

The MakerDAO community is moving forward with an Executive Vote to enact the rate determined by the previous Governance Poll.


Voting for this proposal will place your MKR in support of decreasing the Stability Fee by 2% to a new total of 17.5% per year.
