How does the Kyoko Governance work?

Stakeholders can vote to decide which DAOs or guilds can be on the whitelist of DAO2DAO Loans, and users who participate in voting will likely receive future DAOs or guilds token airdrops. At the same time, Kyoko's related ecological development and major decisions are mainly determined by the community's use of governance tokens.

There are initially two powers associated with each governance token:

  • The proposal power that gives access to creating and sustaining a proposal.

  • The voting power which is used to vote for or against existing proposals.

Governance Proposals

The steps for a successful governance proposal are:

  1. Create an Kyoko Request for Comments (KRC) to share on the forum and exchange with the community.

  2. Use the Kyoko Snapshot to gauge community sentiment and preferences.

  3. Prepare the Kyoko Improvement Proposal (KIP) based on the rough consensus gathered via snapshot and prepare the necessary payloads.

  4. Submit the KIP to the protocol for a governance vote.
