Introduction

UniLend Finance is governed and upgraded by UFTG (UFTG is obtained by wrapping UFT tokens) token holders. The Governance module contains the contracts that facilitate UFTG voting, proposal execution, and the voting security model of UniLend Finance protocol. UFTG holders receive governance power proportional to their balance.

There are 2 functions associated with governance token:

  1. The proposal power in order to create a proposal.
  2. The voting power is used to vote in favor of or against the proposal.

*Note: The proposal power is the total voting power an address has which is the sum of all delegations made on that address.

Our goal is to establish a working trustless governance system. All the community members are welcome to discuss the future of how the UniLend protocol should work.

Discussion

Discussion regarding changes in the protocol happens on a variety of platforms such as:

Beginner’s Guide

The governance process begins in the Governance forum, where users can find proposals under consideration, and engage with others.

Once a proposal has made it through the process and is ready for voting, it will appear in the UniLend Finance Snapshot dashboard, along with all former proposals.

How to make a proposal?
