Gnosis Safe Onboards Yearn, SushiSwap for Gasless Governance

Multis-sig wallet provider Gnosis Safe is launching an off-chain decentralized voting mechanism for governance on DeFi.

Gnosis Safe Aims to Reduce Ethereum’s Load

Gnosis Safe provides over-the-top security to Ethereum accounts on hardware wallets, Metamask, Authereum, WalletConnect enabled wallets, and others. The multi-sig wallet claims support nearly 10% of the entire ETH supply.

Now, they’re launching off-chain voting for crypto communities.

Stefan George, Gnosis Co-Founder, and CTO shared with Crypto Briefing:

“The ability to execute DAO vote outcomes in a decentralized way, without taking the whole process on-chain and incurring the resulting gas fees, has been a difficult one to solve.”

The new module will use Reality.eth, an Ethereum based question-and-answer dApp, to provide the result of the off-chain vote. 

The problem of rising gas fees on Ethereum is pervasive. While there are various proposed solutions around it in layer-2 solutions, an ETH buyback, and ongoing work with the ETH 2.0 update, the costs remain high.

Presently, calling a simple poll function on Ethereum takes up to 25,000 units of gas, costing the protocol nearly $6 at current ETH prices. Gnosis plans to take this functionality off-chain using the Ethereum account address of users outside the main-chain.

Gnosis aims to further off-chain “decentralized meaningful solutions” to reduce the cost of executing on-chain smart contracts.

DeFi projects in Yearn Finance, Balancer, dHedge, SushiSwap, mStable, BrightID,  Stakewise, and PoolTogether are set to sign off for SafeSnap.
