The Celo Release Candidate 1 kitchen is running smoothly and it’s now time to vote on whether you should be rewarded for your first dishes: cLabs just put forward a governance proposal to unfreeze validator elections and validator Celo Dollar rewards.
The proposal ID is
1 and it will run from today, Apr 27th to Friday, May 1st. This post explains how to see and vote on the proposal.
Before jumping in, make sure you have:
- A full node running on Release Candidate 1 - required
- Installed the Celo CLI - required
- Locked your Celo Gold - required
- Set up Authorized Vote Signer Keys (recommended).
Start by checking that your node is synchronized with the network. The output should display
true. If it displays
false you may need to wait a bit and try again.
$ celocli node:synced
Once your node is synced, check out the proposal.
$ celocli governance:view --proposalID=1
It’s now your turn to vote and voice your preference by accepting or rejecting this proposal.
INFO: If you’re using a Ledger hardware wallet you’ll need to make sure your device is unlocked and will need to append to the following commands
--useLedger. Alternatively, if you’re using more than one address, append
ledgerCustomAddresses=[M, N]. See CLI governance docs for more information.
NOTE: In the following commands
<VARIABLE> is used as a placeholder for something you should specify on the command line.
Here’s what will happen and what you need to do.
- [1 Day] Proposal phase - Upvote: Indicate to the community that you’d like the proposal considered.
$ celocli governance:upvote --proposalID=1 --from=<YOUR_ADDRESS>
[1 Day] Approval phase - Wait: The Approver, in this case the Celo Foundation, will review and approve the upvoted proposal from phase 1. No action needed from you.
[2 Days] Referendum phase - Vote: Voice your preference by voting ABSTAIN, YES, or NO for the proposal.
$ celocli governance:vote --proposalID=1 --value=(Abstain|Yes|No) --from=<YOUR_ADDRESS>
- [3 Days] Execution phase - Execute: If the proposal passes with a majority voting yes then it may be executed by anyone within 3 days.
$ celocli governance:execute --proposalID=1 --from=<YOUR_ADDRESS>
