DAIF - Dai Foundation


of 21 Core Units



Dai Foundation

Since 23-Aug-2021

The independent legal entity Dai Foundation has been created to safeguard what cannot be decentralized in Maker DAO, such as ownership of trademarks, domains, software copyrights, etc., which is connected to a real-world centralized governance body.

What we do

The Dai Foundation Core Unit is responsible for:
  • Facilitating the dialogue between the Dai Foundation and the Community regarding intellectual property safeguarding, intellectual property usage, and related activities
  • Request the necessary budget from Maker DAO Governance to sustain its operations and adequately mitigate the related legal risks to its essential role
  • Implementation of processes for safeguarding of new intellectual property that is added to the Protocol at Dai Foundation.
  • Implementation of processes for making the intellectual property that Dai Foundation owns available for use by the broader Maker community for the good of the protocol with as few barriers as possible.
  • Providing transparency around how the Dai Foundation operates and which assets the Dai Foundation owns.
  • In collaboration with Maker Governance, create transparency around how the usage rights of the Maker Assets are allocated.
