Snapshot Proposal

How to raise a proposal in snapshot and vote


Snapshot is a popular DAO tool and interface for direct democrativ voting that allows holders to participate in large-scale governance without spending gas. Creating a proposal and voting are both free. Proposals and votes are signed messages, stored on IPFS. Signatures are easily verifiable online. You can find Deep Work's Snapshot page at:

After a successful vote

If requesting funding or work, you'll need to set up a project in Deep Teams with a representative or project owner (and a stakeholder) to get paid.

If a proposal has objections

In case of a veto by a minority, a discussion needs to be started in the relevant Discord channel in order to provide space to the individuals who disagree. The goal of proposals is not a 50+% majority vote, but a solution in the range of everyone's tolerance. Nobody should feel excluded from the decision, even if the solution is not in the range of everyone's preference.
