  • Proposal Stage

    All STG Token holder are eligible to submit non-binding proposals, which may result in a governance vote by holders of veSTG voting power.

  • Voting

    Proposals with a positive poll sentiment can be submitted to Snapshot by any holder of 50,000 veSTG, or from Admin wallets on Snapshot. Core and Protocol proposals have voting periods ranging between 24 hours & 120 hours.
