These include proposals that were accumulating in anticipation of Snapshot’s release, and previously null DAO decisions that failed to reach quorum. As voting is now free — there is literally no excuse for a decision to fail due to lack of participation. If you support a proposal, vote FOR, if you wish to reject a proposal, vote AGAINST.These proposals were collected and submitted for a DAO decision, with the Snapshot block set to ~48 hours into the future. This means that DAO members have 48 hours to stake vBNT in the governance contracts if they wish to vote for/against one of the 17 proposals. This is still done on Ethereum L1, via the vote tab in the bancor.network app. Users can vote for as many proposals as they like — you don’t have to choose just one.How to VoteWarning: Don’t Get Phished!
