This proposal would repurpose tokens set aside for market making to instead be authorized for direct sale and other initiatives.

Specifically, DIP-6 previously authorized the DIMO Foundation to sell 5,000,000 $DIMO tokens to bring in resources to fund operations, as well as the ability to loan 50,000,000 $DIMO for market making activity.

This proposal would redraw these allocations. If passed, the DIMO Foundation will be authorized to sell an additional 20,000,000 $DIMO to investors and strategic partners (25,000,000 total). Also, the authorization to loan tokens to market makers is cut in half to 25,000,000 $DIMO.

The 5,000,000 $DIMO left over are unallocated and returned the treasury.

The DIMO Foundation suggests that 25,000,000 $DIMO is sufficient to facilitate market making activities and that there will likely be opportunities to continue to sell meaningful amounts of $DIMO to investors and strategic partners at favorable prices to further diversify the treasury and ensure future funding for development.


// If passed, this proposal would edit the following section within the DIP-6 Specification section:

Treasury Initiatives

Additionally, this proposal authorizes the DIMO Foundation to sell up to 25,000,000 5,000,000 $DIMO tokens and to loan up to 25,000,000 50,000,000 $DIMO tokens to market makers.

The DIMO Foundation may not sell this specific pool of tokens below $0.30. A minimum one-year lockup is required on token sales unless there is a bona fide expectation that the purchaser will use a majority of those tokens themselves to use DIMO, such as to produce devices or operate a node.

The Foundation will make its best effort to balance regulatory, financial, and strategic considerations to maximize the long-term health of the DIMO protocol.

These tokens would come from the unallocated treasury pool of 250,000,000 $DIMO. This may be amended or deals on other terms (e.g., below $0.30) may be authorized by any valid governance vote.


If passed, DIP-6 would be updated as specified above after the four day timelock concludes and only once DIP-1: Amendment 1 is enacted.

Feb 27, 2023: updated to include additional requirements on sales ($0.30 minimum and lockup).

Mar 3, 2023: adjusted the date that the proposal is in review from March 3 to March 15. This is to create more time discussion and hopefully the introduction of a fourth proposal related to marketplace issuance that can be voted alongside the three that are currently in review.

Mar 9, 2023: added clarification that these conditions may be amended. This was already the case, but extra specificity may reduce confusion.

Mar 13, 2023: extended the review period from March 15 to March 22. This is to continue to provide more time for discussion and hopefully the introduction of a fourth proposal related to marketplace issuance that can be voted alongside the three that are currently in review.

Mar 14, 2023: added clarifying language that the restriction on price and lockup pertains to this pool of authorized tokens specifically.
