Treasury Management
The Treasury Management Fund is a 3/5 multisig held by the Treasury Management Team and two independent third-party signatories. Established on February 8, 2022 via proposal, the Treasury Management Fund aims to:
  1. 1.
    maintain a strong fiscal position for Tracer DAO operations;
  2. 2.
    and, subject to that, to support the growth of Tracer DAO by maximising risk-adjusted returns and optimising capital efficiency.

Wallet Management

The Treasury Management Fund is managed by the Treasury Management Team subject to the oversight of the Treasury Management Council. Because Tracer is a community-led DAO, the Treasury Management Fund (and related bodies) operate in accordance with the Treasury Management Fund Remit (TMF Remit), as confirmed and amended, from time to time, by community vote.

Treasury Management Team

The Treasury Management Team are serving a twelve month term from February 8, 2022, subject to renewal by the community. Each member holds a key to the Treasury Management Fund multisig.

Treasury Management Council

A Treasury Management Council (TMC) is composed of the Treasury Management Team and two Independent Council Members. The Treasury Management Council has the authority to decide on certain Treasury Management Fund policies and matters that require a heightened level of scrutiny but fall short of requiring a full community vote. The members are serving a twelve month term (from February 8, 2022), subject to renewal by the community. Decisions will be made by a simple majority.
The Treasury Management Council are responsible for:
  1. 1.
    reviewing and monitoring Treasury Management Fund performance;
  2. 2.
    setting policies to mitigate risk (including, but not limited to strategy risk, market risk, smart contract risk, counterparty risk, legal risk, and token exposure risk);
  3. 3.
    set and monitor risk limits and concentration limits; and
  4. 4.
    whitelisting protocols and strategies available to the Treasury Management Fund, subject in each case to its community-proscribed remit (TMF Remit).
The Treasury Management Council deliver a quarterly report, uploaded via Discourse, reporting on:
  1. 1.
    the overall performance of the Treasury Management Fund;
  2. 2.
    portfolio composition and risk assessment; and
  3. 3.
    material changes to Treasury Management Fund policies.

Independent Council Members

Independent Council Members are available to meet and discuss policies as needed, attend Treasury Management Council quarterly review meetings, and approve the TMC quarterly report to the community. The members are serving a twelve month term (from February 8, 2022), subject to renewal by the community.
