Governance of the Swarm Network by its Members is an important function. Here is a quick-start guide to getting a governance action to vote.
Iterate. Based on feedback, develop your idea until you feel it is solid enough to formulate into a coherent proposal, with clearly presented benefits and budget implications.
Finalise your idea. While you’re getting feedback from Members, or when you’re ready, start formally documenting your idea. You can use a template as a guide for how to structure your proposal.
Submit a draft proposal: Only Swarm Members may submit a proposal for balloting. To enter the Swarm Network Voting Queue, submit your proposal to Github and stake a minimum of two hundred and fifty (250) SWM tokens. Instructions for submitting a draft proposal are here.
Get support: Other Members can stake against your proposal. Every two months, the top five most supported ballots, by stake, are selected to be voted on. Go out there and campaign.
Vote!: Read up on all upcoming ballots, talk to their sponsors, and don’t forget to vote. Every SWM token holder can vote on every ballot.
