What is a Gnosis Safe?
Gnosis Safe is a smart contract wallet running on Ethereum that requires a minimum number of people to approve a transaction before it can occur.
Gnosis Safes are commonly used to manage pooled DAO funds. DAOs often require a certain number of members to sign off on any fund transfers. DAO actions are generally voted upon by all members and then executed by the core group of signers.
The Gnosis Safe allows users to define a list of owner/signer accounts and a threshold number of signers required to confirm a transaction. Once the threshold of owner accounts have confirmed a transaction, the Safe transaction can be executed.
Gnosis Safes on Tally
To empower DAOs that use Gnosis Safes, Tally allows users to create or link their Safes to a Tally organization.
Creating a Gnosis Safe on Tally creates the exact same instance of Gnosis’s smart contract that Gnosis’s own app does, with the added benefit of managing from the same Tally organization that you may be using for Governor and Tokenless DAOs. Having your Gnosis Safe linked on Tally will also allow users to one day take advantage of Tally features such as the Create Proposal tool and Recipes.
