Governance Action Voting Process


  • Every two months, the five most supported ballots are voted on by eligible members in a referendum.

  • Each SWM token grants its holder the right to cast one vote in any referendum.

  • Liquid Democracy: Votes can be delegated to others.

  • Winning ballots become actions to be executed by the Swarm Council.

Voting Calendar Schedule
