ApeSwap governance was previously spread across multiple tools, including the ApeSwap subreddit and Snapshot. To unify the process, the ApeSwap DAO aligned on two strategic objectives of updating the governance process:
- 1.Make it easier for ApeSwap users to get involved in governance
- 2.Increase governance voting turnout among ApeSwap users
Signing up to participate in ApeSwap governance on Commonwealth is easy — you can create an account using an email address, GitHub account, or crypto wallet (like MetaMask).
Once you’ve connected your account, you can view the threads in ApeSwap’s Commonwealth forum, which is divided into five Topics:
Governance follows these steps:
2) Proposal In Review
3) Voting (via Snapshot Integration)
Currently, only proposals created by the ApeSwap DAO Council (DAOC) can be posted under the Proposal Review topic in Commonwealth. The DAOC will accept governance initiatives both from members of the ApeSwap team, and from the community. Community proposals will go through internal DAOC review first, then those that pass DAOC review will be posted in the Proposal Review topic.
