The Tezos Foundation is excited to see the first use of the Tezos on-chain governance mechanism! As we noted in last year’s statement regarding strategy, “One of the most important features of the Tezos protocol is its ability to improve itself through protocol amendments proposed and approved by community members.”
We are extremely excited about this aspect of Tezos and look forward to seeing what the community decides. The amendment process involves three separate votes (see this overview for details). The Foundation has decided not to vote during the first part of this process, the Proposal Period, which is now taking place.
Tezos has an amazing community and it is exciting to see the engagement and discussion around the proposals since their announcement and injection.
We encourage the community to become involved:
- Learn about the Tezos Athens proposals: 1) Nomadic Labs’ overview of the Athens proposals and announcement of the proposal injection; and 2) An overview on Medium
- If delegating, check with your delegate to learn their policy about how they intend to vote on protocol upgrades
- Get involved in community discussions
We look forward to seeing how the community decides!
