A Guide to Proposals: Viewing, Voting, Creating


Final proposals for decision making and funding requests submitted to the network for voting.

As part of Blocknet’s self-governance, every 43,200 blocks (about every month) there is a Superblock where these proposals are voted on by active Service Nodes on the network. Superblocks are referred to by the block number that it occurs on (see list here). A maximum of 40,000 BLOCK can be created to fund passing proposals (see passing criteria).

View Proposals

  1. Select a subcategory to filter proposals for that Superblock period.
  2. Certain tags have been created to help inform the team’s opinion on a proposal based off working knowledge of the project and activities. Team refers to contributors that have been voted in by the Service Nodes.
    • team-approved means that there is unanimous approval of the proposal among the team.
    • team-opposed means that there is unanimous opposition of the proposal among the team.
    • If neither tag is present this indicates that the proposal has either not been reviewed within the team or the opinions are indifferent or not unanimous.
  3. If there are any questions about a proposal, such as missing details or clarifications needed, leave a reply on the thread for that proposal so it can be answered and others can see the response.
