Kleros governance of a DAO for Dispute resolution
Purpose of governance system:
Two governance systems:
- Built-in jury system for dispute resolution (not described here)
- Governance of the code base / the system itself
- Communications: Offchain forum
- Voting: Aragon
- Enforcement: Developing proprietary system to convert “human language” decisions to code, so that they will be able to auto execute.
- Dispute resolution: Proprietary Kleros
Reason we chose that technology
- Aragon was the available technology at that time.
Governed objects and mechanisms:
- Code changes
- Anyone can make a proposal. Usually the proposals are not subject to much discussion, because they are technical in nature and most of the community doesn’t care
- When a proposal comes for voting, Kleros issues 1 voting token for each Kleros token. This way it is one-token-one-vote, but people do not have to stake or withdraw their Kleros tokens. These one-time tokens are good only for the specific proposal voting for which they were issued.
- The issuance of the voting token is done in a transparent way, so that the tokens are issued, but the user doesn’t see them as tokens. Users just vote on the proposal.
- Proposals are in human language. Kleros is developing tools that will allow for conversion of human-described decisions into code that can auto-execute.
