Following up on this previous public vote and this forum post, it is hereby proposed that the current Cat Herders for the ProtocolDAO (dimsome) and mStableDAO (mZeroNine) complete the transition into the full-time role that was previously suggested to commence on the 1st of September 2021. This will increase their workload to 5 full days per week (8hrs/day) as Cat Herders for the respective DAO.

This change will add further responsibilities and an increased compensation to the role, with a brief summary of the key facts given below:

An additional 100k MTA will be streamed linearly via Sablier from the commencement of this position over 3 years, and be vested for the entire duration.

  • Serving in an advisory role towards the Asset Management subDAO to locate new and promising opportunities to present to the committee on an ongoing basis

Independence from the mStable Genesis team & small print - This role is performed for the mStableDAO and ProtocolDAO respectively on the behalf of the mStable Community and all stakeholders.

All proposals, messages, decisions, and other legally and otherwise binding actions that originate from the respective Cat Herders are done exclusively on behalf of the respective DAOs, their stakeholders, as well as mStable community as a whole, and are presented as such.

Next Steps

If successful, both Cat Herders will commence work in the role as described above and continue in this role until otherwise decided upon via public vote starting on the 1st of September 2021.

Pending no significant objections, this proposal will be taken to a public Snapshot vote on the 24th of August 2021 and will remain open for 5 days to give adequate time for a concurrent discussion here on the forum.

As expected, we’re both really excited to be able to commit more time & energy to the project and the ecosystem as a whole, and are looking forward to see what Meta Governors have to say about us taking on this full-time commitment for the respective DAOs.


Hi everyone!

I want to take a quick moment and thank everyone who participated in this vote for their opinion and trust, and I think I speak for both of us if I say that we’ll do our very best to keep up and even improve upon the high level of quality and diligence you came to expect from the Cat Herders of the two DAOs.

Once again, many thanks for your confidence in us, and looking forward to continuing down this DeFi rabbit hole with you all!


Thanks, everyone for the support.

Never would I have thought that my dabbling in crypto and especially Ethereum and later DeFi would lead me to work for such a great DAO.


Incredibly excited to have you onboard @Dimsome. You are an integral part of the team now :muscle:
