Why should Paladin DAO delegate AAVE Governance Power to StableLab?
StableLab is the ideal candidate to represent Paladin DAO in the Aave DAO. As a Paladin DAO Delegate and Community Multi-Sig Signer, we are fully committed to executing the vision of Paladin Protocol. At Aave DAO, we have been an active contributor to governance since October 2022.
At StableLab, active governance participation is ingrained in our culture. This is evident through our comprehensive understanding and active engagement at every stage of the governance process. We vote on proposals and consistently communicate our vote rationale in our Forum Delegate Thread. Additionally, we demonstrate our commitment to improving the Paladin Governance Process by documenting the Paladin Governance Process here.
Our significant contributions to Aave DAO’s governance can be observed through our consistent efforts to document and improve the Aave Governance Process. The appointment of a delegate from the Paladin Community to represent the DAO in Aave necessitates a firm understanding of meta-governance. As a Governance Firm, StableLab is best suited to fulfill this role. Our team has the necessary context to leverage the Aave Protocol and its products to create value for the Paladin DAO.
In addition to supporting the Aave GHO liquidity pools proposal, which could possibly see an aspect of Aave’s Safety Module allocation being used to source BAL and AURA incentives through Warden Quest, we would represent Dullahan’s interest by participating and voting on measures related to the dApp.
How will StableLab be held Accountable?
If entrusted with this delegation, we will initiate a dedicated Aave delegate forum thread to report our votes and provide the rationale behind our decisions in Aave Governance.
Additionally, we propose the establishment of a designated channel on the Realm Discord to facilitate open communication with the community. To further strengthen transparency and engagement, we suggest organizing a biweekly Paladin Meta-Governance call. During this call, Paladin’s representatives in other DAOs (Aave, Convex, and Aura Finance) would come together and address the community. They would discuss their strategies for representing Paladin’s interests in those communities and delve into how their approach would ultimately generate value for the Paladin DAO.
Furthermore, we recommend that each Paladin Representative submit a monthly report on the Paladin Forum. This report will provide a detailed summary of the following:
- Voting Participation rate, Communication rate, and Total number of votes casted within that month.
- Number of proposals written in the advancement of Paladin DAO
- Summary of prospective integrations or opportunities for value generation for Paladin DAO.
