How to make a proposal

Anyone can make a proposal if they have locked enough governance tokens. This involves 2 steps:

  1. Creating the on-chain proposal via crust apps :
  2. Adding text/arguments/explanation to your proposal via the governance platform

Show Support for a Proposal

Once a proposal is created, governance participants are asked to support proposals. One proposal per week is promoted to a referendum.

1. Select a Proposal to Support

Go to Governance -> Democracy. If there are any ongoing proposal, you should see them listed on this page.

2. Second a Proposal

From the list of the proposals, click “Second” and in the opened module, click “Second” again to show support for the proposal.

3. Confirm

Once you signed the extrinsic in step 2, you should see your account being listed in a “Seconds” dropdown in the list of proposal.

Vote on Referenda

After a set number of blocks, the proposal with the highest backing staked governance tokens will be put up for a vote. Once a proposal is decided to be voted on, it is called a referendum.
