[MRC-84] Neutron Foundations MARS Grant


The objective of this proposal is to obtain the 60m MARS tokens to grant the Neutron Foundation which was defined and successfully voted on in the MRC-67 Mars x Neutron Alignment proposal.


The alignment proposals both passed successfully on the Neutron and Mars Protocol DAOs, and the Neutron Foundation has successfully followed through with its initial payment as defined in the MRC-67 proposal. The Mars Protocol DAO now needs to fulfill its side of the proposal by allocating 60m MARS tokens to the Neutron Foundation.


This proposal includes a community pool spend to send 60m MARS tokens to the Mars Protocol Foundation’s assigned CW3 multisig contract. This multisig will stake the mars and grant vote permissions via Authz to a Neutron Foundation assigned address as mentioned in MRC-67:

MARS tokens allocated to the Neutron Foundation will initially be custodied by a Mars Hub multisig controlled by members of the Mars Foundation. These MARS tokens will be staked in Mars Hub governance, and an authz generic grant of govv1.msgVote will be granted to an appointed second multisig or EOA owned by the Neutron Foundation. This will allow the Neutron Foundation to vote while Mars governance still resides on Mars Hub.

Additionally, it is worth reiterating, as outlined in MRC-67, how staking rewards relating to this MARS will be handled:

During migration of governance from Mars Hub to Neutron, the Mars Foundation will claim the staking rewards received from staking the MARS token grant, and send the MARS accrued through staking rewards back to the Mars community pool.
