Timeline and Rules

  • The voting phase is from 20th August 2018 4:00 UTC to 4th September 2018 4:00 UTC (“decision point”).
  • Voters vote for either Yes or No.
  • Each Ethereum address can vote and change their vote anytime during the voting phase. Only the last vote counts.
  • The votes will be weighted accordingly to the DGD balance in the voter’s address at the “decision point”. This means that voters can transfer DGDs in and out of their voting address freely during the voting phase, but the balance that will ultimately count towards their vote is the balance at 4th September 2018 4:00 UTC.
  • Hence, a voter can also vote with an Ethereum address with 0 DGD, and only transfer his DGDs into the address before 4th September 2018 4:00 UTC.
  • Participants in this carbon vote will be awarded a certain amount of reputation points when DigixDAO is live.
  • The proposal is considered passed if the % of DGDs that voted Yes is more than 51% of the amount of DGDs voted.
  • The sum of all voters’ DGD balance must exceed 300,000 DGDs for the vote to be considered valid.

Reputation bonus for carbon voting participants

To incentivise participation, we will be rewarding users who participate in the carbon vote with a fixed amount of initial reputation points when the DigixDAO contracts launch, if they use the same address to register.

Carbon voting instructions:

  • You can only vote using one of the following Ethereum wallets: JSON wallet file, ledger wallet, metamask, imToken or trezor
  • You cannot vote from an exchange wallet or any other wallets.
  • Note for ledger wallets: you will need to enable both browser support and contract data on your ledger’s Ethereum wallet settings.
