At launch, Teller will support a Pauser role to be controlled by a Multisig. Owners of the Multisig will include teammates, investors, advisors, and select community members. This initial governance of the protocol works to protect user funds if unforeseen situations are discovered. Control is distributed amongst a cohort of actors who are strongly incentivized to ensure the success of the protocol. Future plans will transition ownership of the Pauser role to the community through the Teller Governance module.
