Simple Summary

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough. Provide a simplified and layman-accessible explanation of the GIP.


A short (~200 word) description of the issue being addressed.


The motivation is critical for GIPs that want to allocate funding or change the GnosisDAO. GIP posts without sufficient motivation may be rejected outright.


The technical specification should describe the syntax and semantics of any new feature. The specification should be detailed enough to allow for it to be reasoned about by participants in the GnosisDAO.


The rationale fleshes out the specification by describing what motivated the design and why particular design decisions were made. It should describe alternate designs that were considered and related work. The rationale may also provide evidence of consensus within the community, and should discuss important objections or concerns raised during discussion.


The implementations must be completed before any GIP is given status “Final”, but it need not be completed before the GIP is accepted.
