[Temperature Check]: Competition of Delegation of UNI to Active but Underrepresented Delegates

Snapshot: here


The Temperature Check regarding “Delegation of UNI to Active but Underrepresented Delegates” has passed, and there was a 5-day period where delegates that met the application criteria posted their application to be considered for delegation.

There were 7 qualified delegates. This snapshot voting will be a weighted voting where each voter may spread voting power across any number of choices.

Top 4 Delegates will get delegation till 2.5 M is achieved. The rest of UNI (out of 10 M) will be split among the rest proportional to their votes won.

Detailed example has been shared here.

Qualified Delegates (Order of when the application was posted)

Wintermute Governance

-Ever since launching our delegate profile in January, our mission has been to actively contribute to Uniswap’s governance efficiency and growth. We’ve maintained a 100% participation rate for on-chain votes (pass all participation requirements) since our delegate launch, deployed Uni V2 on Boba and Gnosis Chain, launched WinterGov , and actively provided feedback to Uniswap proposals. We’d love to continue supporting the growth of Uniswap by contributing to governance efficiency, contributing to more deployments, and would be honoured if the DAO were to empower us with greater voting power!


-As a power user of Uniswap, we’re fully aligned with Uniswap’s best interest such as multi-chain expansion and improving a fair and distributed governance participation. There is a clear miss-match of voting power and participation for some delegates so we believe this initiative will not only push the less active participants to be active but also enable more initiatives by the recipients of this delegation. If we receive this delegation, we are committed to always contribute and be active within the forums while providing our perspective and expertise in matters such as liquidity provision.


-StableLab is a professional delegate and governance services firm, contributing to over 20 protocols and ecosystems with exceptional diligence and participation metrics. StableLab helps DAOs scale sustainably through lean and efficient governance. We have been actively participating in Uniswap governance both via voting, forum posts, Uniswap Deployments Accountability Committee, and UNI-ARB Grant Program. And we believe that with greater governance power, we will be able to support the protocol even further by helping to encourage more accountability and discussions.


-As an expert in Uniswap’s technical details and someone with real-world governance experience, I am well-positioned to contribute to the DAO. Without a doubt, Uniswap is among the most significant DeFi protocols, and it’s a privilege to participate in making decisions about its future. I’ve been seriously involved in DeFi governance only recently, since the delegate race this spring, but I have quickly developed a strong affinity for it, and have participated with diligence. My voting record demonstrates a willingness to cast dissenting votes and challenge the consensus—on occasion, I have been the sole significant negative voter, as I believe entertaining contrarian arguments are essential for sound governance. If I receive the support, I will increase my participation in the forums by also regularly sharing rationale for my votes in the delegate platform thread.


-As a long time Uniswap Community member of over two years, I’ve watched Uniswap governance grow into a robust and thriving ecosystem. Currently, I help with two community led initiatives here being the Uniswap-Arbitrum delegate program where we help steward the DAO’s $ARB airdrop in Arbitrum governance and the Deployment Accountability Committee.

This delegation would severely help my work on the Deployment Accountability Committee as often the question of how to submit an ecosystem’s Uniswap deployment on-chain is posed. Of course, with >2.5m delegation, we can easily propose and skip that burdensome step. Being full time now at PGov, and having led the FranklinDAO platform where I utilized our delegation to propose multiple on-chain votes, I understand how important this delegation is and will promise the community to diligently represent these votes. Thanks for your consideration!

404 DAO

-404 DAO is a non-profit born out of Blockchain at Georgia Tech. Our team encompasses a wide range of both technical and non-technical backgrounds, from analytics and business development to cybersecurity and MEV. We seek to support the development of new applications in the Uniswap ecosystem, expanding the range of users, and accumulating value to the holders of the Uniswap governance token and relevant stakeholders. We look forward to increasing our involvement in the Uniswap DAO and are ready to take on the necessary commitment that additional voting power entails.

404 DAO is also an active delegate for Arbitrum, Optimism, and dYdX. Our team is committed to transparency - our decision process, core principles, and previous work in other protocols can be found on our governance page .


-karpatkey is a DeFi-native organisation specialising in professional treasury development through industry-leading research and tooling since 2020. We work with DAOs such as GnosisDAO , Balancer, ENS, CoW Protocol, and Lido to diversify their treasuries into sustainable portfolios of DeFi investments designed to support the DAOs in their missions.

We launched our delegate platform on Uniswap in August 2023, and have been thoughtfully participating in voting and discussions over the past three month. We are also proud to have participated in the inaugural Blessing sponsored by the Uniswap Foundation and focused on the Uniswap ecosystem and governance.

Next Steps

After this proposal is concluded, each delegate’s delegation from this program will be calculated, and it will eventually proceed to an onchain vote.


We thank @0xkeyrock.eth for helping to post it on snapshot :pray:


Hi @Doo_StableLab
I’m intrigued by the recent UNI delegation proposal and would like to know more about the criteria for delegate qualification. Could you briefly outline or share the docs the standards or requirements considered when selecting the qualified delegates? Your insights would be greatly appreciated.

The poll has closed and thanks everyone for voting.

Confirming Top 4 Delegates are 404 DAO, Wintermute Governance, PGov, and StableLab, and will get delegation till 2.5 M is achieved. The rest of UNI (out of 10 M) will be split among Keyrock, Karpatkey, and atiselsts.eth proportional to their votes won.

Next steps would be calculating needed delegation amount for each, and also incorporating technical understanding of the implementation.
