Simple Summary

The Kleros Governor contract managing the funds of the Proof of Humanity DAO currently has a deposit requirement of 13.0005 ETH. We propose to reduce this deposit requirement in alignment to a Kleros KIP 43 proposal to 4.1 ETH


The target for this parameter is supposed to be more on the order of 10k usd originally, so it should be brought down somewhat to account for increases in ETH prices since the last time the parameter was updated. The task of reviewing governor updates is technical, and extremely sensitive, so the bounty for challengers needs to be quite high. Nonethless, it doesn’t need to be as high as 13 ETH today.

Kleros has proposed on KIP-43 to reduce the governor deposit fees to 4.1 ETH and we recommend following the same path for Proof of Humanity.


Update Proof of Humanity’s Kleros Governor submissionBaseDeposit to 4.1 ETH.


Looks good. Simple readjustment due to ETH price going up.


Since no further comments were received, I moved this to Phase 2.

Since Phase 2 was approved with 97% of the votes… now I advanced this to the final binding Phase 3 vote: Snapshot
