Gains Network


Welcome to our new governance interaction framework, which consists of:
  • The Forum (Discord)
  • Snapshot (On-chain Proposals)
This system has been designed to streamline your participation in shaping the future of our ecosystem.

Forum (Discord)

The new Governance category on our Discord server is our platform for engaging in meaningful discussions and collaborative decision-making. Here's a breakdown of how it operates:
  1. 1.
    Proposal-Discussion Channel: This channel serves as the hub for submitting and deliberating on two distinct types of posts:
  • Grant Proposals: We've provided a dedicated template to guide users through the submission process for grant proposals. Once submitted, the community and our team can offer insights, feedback, and suggestions for enhancement. While our team leads the evaluation and refinement, we actively encourage community participation.
  • GIP (Gains Improvement Proposals): This channel is for more substantial feedback that has the potential to influence smart contract adjustments or changes to our protocol/token. Please note that GIPs are not restricted by templates, but should focus on impactful proposals rather than minor tweaks or user experience refinements.
  1. 2.
    Informal-Discussion Channel: Engage in open conversations related to governance in this channel. Share your ideas for grants and GIPs, or seek clarifications on governance processes and principles.
Please note that any other type of posts will get deleted and the user will be banned. Ideas and feedback that pertain to minor changes or tweaks belong in the ideas-feedback channel. If in doubt, please post in the latter.

Snapshot (On-chain Proposals)

Once a proposal gains consensus and refinement within the Forum on Discord, it can transition to the Snapshot platform for broader community consideration. Here's an overview of how Snapshot works in this regard:
  1. 1.
    Submission Process:
Admins will curate and refine proposals before presenting them on the Snapshot-submissions channel. This channel serves as a notification center for all server members, providing visibility into the upcoming proposals.
  1. 2.
    Voting with $GNS Tokens:
Each member's voice matters. Utilize your $GNS tokens on Arbitrum/Polygon to cast your vote on Snapshot proposals. Remember that this is a proto-governance phase, meaning there's no direct on-chain enforcement. This means that only admin-approved proposals will be the ones moving forward.
Your participation and input are crucial as we evolve our governance framework. One GNS token equals one vote, so make your voice heard and contribute to shaping our collective future. Thank you for being an integral part of our governance journey!
