The DIMO's governance follows some standard implementations from OpenZeppelin: GovernorUpgradeable contract, the upgradeability mechanism UUPSUpgradeable, and OwnableUpgradeable. The DimoGovernor also employs the following extensions:
  • GovernorSettingsUpgradeable
    • Allows changing _votingDelay, _votingPeriod and _proposalThreshold through a proposal
  • GovernorCountingSimpleUpgradeable
    • Simplifies voting system to accept only Agains, For and Abstain votes
  • GovernorVotesUpgradeable
  • GovernorVotesQuorumFractionUpgradeable
    • Allows the quorum to be expressed as a fraction of the total supply. It is also possible change the quorum through a proposal
  • GovernorTimelockControlUpgradeable
    • Adds a delay in the execution of governance decisions. With that, proposals are carried out by the external Timelock contract.
The DimoGovernor contract works in conjunction with the TimeLock contract that introduces a delay between the proposal and its execution. If a proposal is successful, the users have the minDelay period to perform any relevant operation before the execution. Please note that the minDelay period can still be changed by an admin.
