2. DigixDAO Updates

This week, DigixDAO is approaching the end of Quarter 1 on 28th June 2019, 11 AM Singapore Time. This will also mark the start of the Locking Phase of Quarter 2.

During these 10 days of the Locking Phase, existing participants/moderators can do one of the operations mentioned below:

  1. Lock more DGDs in DigixDAO while continuing participation
  2. Continue participation in DigixDAO with their existing DGD stake
  3. Withdraw partial or all DGDs from DigixDAO
Confirm participation for new Quarter

Note that in option (3), an existing participant would cease to be a participant if they end up staking less than the minimum required DGDs to participate (which is set to 10 DGDs at the moment).

After having done one of those Ethereum transactions, DigixDAO participants will be able to claim DGX as a reward for their participation in Quarter 1. Users can refer to the DigixDAO UI guide to check on how to claim their DGX rewards.

In addition to that, Digix has successfully claimed their project for Gitcoin bounties. We have also open sourced the repositories for DigixDAO development on our Github page. In the coming days, Digix will be adding issues to the Gitcoin platform with bounties in DGX tokens for the community developers to work on them.
