Governance

  • Community discussions have begun on the process of accepting software upgrades and implementing it. The question is ‘how do we implement an efficient yet decentralized process of upgrading the Cosmos Hub?’
  • Two proposals are ongoing voting at the moment: 1. Adjust the blocks-per-year parameter to match actual Cosmos Hub blocktime and 2. Enable Atom transfers. Proposal #1 has passed minimum quorum + yes votes, and pending voting end time (April 3) and Proposal #2 pending quorum and a supermajority yes votes.
  • Discussions on Interchain Foundation delegations kicked off by Validator Network. Focusing on decentralizing voting power. Additional suggestions raised by B-Harvest.
