What is the Optimistic Governor?
Management of DAO treasuries and other multi-signature wallets no longer need to be limited to X-of-Y signing schemes or tokenholder votes. Instead, a DAO can publish rules in plain English with sufficient detail for a neutral third-party observer to determine whether transactions submitted to a Gnosis Safe follow the rules or not.
The Optimistic Governor then allows any address to propose transactions that follow the predetermined set of rules. These transactions then go through a challenge period where any address can dispute the transaction.
If a transaction is not disputed, it can then be executed. However, if any address believes the proposed transaction does not follow the rules, the transaction can be disputed. A dispute is resolved by neutral human voters brought in to vote on the outcome based on the predetermined set of rules.
