📣 How is Voting Power Calculated?

Each GokuMarket DAO user and their unique wallet address has one vote per proposal. To qualify to participate in the GokuMarket DAO voting, each user’s decentralised wallet (e.g. MetaMask) must have a minimum balance of 5 GMC. When the proposal is issued, then the block and the GMC decentralised wallet balances on the Binance Smart Chain are recorded as a snapshot. All wallet addresses with a minimum balance of 5 GMC qualify for voting based on their Voting Power.

Voting Power (VP) is defined as the number of votes that each user can cast when voting. Generally, the more GMC a wallet votes with, the more Voting Power they will have. However, to ensure that a few wallets with high amounts of GMC do not easily control a vote, an Anti-Whale Strategy has been implemented that reduces the impact of big wallets in the resulting value. It reduces the effect on the Voting Power as the token amount increases. Below is the formula used for Voting Power:

Voting Power = InflectionPoint * (GMC / InflectionPoint) ^ Exponent

Voting Power = number of votes casted by a wallet
GMC = is the number of GokuMarket Credit in a wallet
InflectionPoint = 5 (constant set to 5)
Exponent = 0.5 (constant set to 0.5)

InflectionPoint: Point at which output matches result. Results less than this increase output. Results greater than this decrease output. In Gokumarket DEX, we have taken it as 5.

Exponent: The exponent is responsible for the Anti-Whale effect. Must be less than one, or else it will have a pro-whale effect. Must be greater than zero, or else it will cause total voting power to trend to zero. In Gokumarket DEX, we have taken it as 0.5.

Anti-Whale Strategy Impact Chart

Ex.(1): wallet 100 GMC has Voting Power of 22 = 5 * (100 / 5)^0.5
Ex.(2): wallet 25,000 GMC has Voting Power of 354 = 5 * (25,000 / 5)^0.5
Ex.(3): wallet 75,000 GMC has Voting Power of 612 = 5 * (75,000 / 5)^0.5
