Governance
Governance is managed by a community DAO and has the ability to perform maintenance functions and parameter adjustments to the protocol via decentralized voting, including:
  • Upgrading contracts
  • Changing protocol configurations and parameters
  • Selecting Unique Entity Check providers
  • Setting the rewards and distribution of GFI
  • Pausing protocol activity in the event of an emergency

Participation

Anyone can participate in governance by making proposals, discussing them, and participating in Snapshot votes.

Governance Forum

The Goldfinch community governance portal is located at https://gov.goldfinch.finance/. This is a venue for the community to make and discuss proposals. More details on the proposal process are at the governance portal here.

Snapshot Votes
