Governance with tokenholder participation is essential on Vega. Markets and assets can only be added through governance, and network parameters, markets and assets all must be amended through governance as well.
You must meet certain criteria before you can submit. Requirements may differ depending on the type of proposal.
You will typically need:
- A connected Vega wallet, with your wallet name and public key to hand
- A minimum amount of Vega tokens associated with that public key
- Familiarity with governance on Vega
This section includes sample proposals that you can amend and submit via the command line.
📄️ New futures market
Propose a cash-settled futures market on any underlying with a settlement data source.
📄️ New perpetuals market
📄️ New futures successor market
Propose a cash-settled futures market to succeed an existing market, taking along the equity-like share and a portion of the insurance pool.
📄️ Change market state
Below, learn how to submit a governance proposal to:
📄️ Change a futures market
Propose changes to an existing futures market.
📄️ Change network parameter
Network parameters are a constant (or an array of constants) in the system, the values of which can be changed by on-chain governance.
📄️ New asset
This page provides a tutorial for submitting a proposal for a new ERC-20 asset to be used as collateral. It describes what can be proposed, what you need to propose a new asset, and provides proposal templates that you will need to edit before submitting.
📄️ Update an asset
Some of the properties of an asset can be changed through governance. Those fields are: withdrawal and deposit limits, and the asset's quantum.
📄️ Update asset bridge
Vega supports adding ERC-20 assets, which can be deposited to and withdrawn from Vega through the ERC-20 asset bridge.
📄️ Transferring assets
Network-managed accounts that allow transfers require the community to approve transferring assets out of them. You can also propose that those assets are used to fund trading rewards by including those details into the proposal.
📄️ Enable or replace referral program
The on-chain referral program allows users to refer new traders. Referrers can get a cut of their referees' trading fees, and referees get a discount on their fees. In addition, a referrer with VEGA tokens associated can multiply their rewards.
📄️ Enable or replace volume discount program
When a volume discount program is enabled, traders can receive discounts on their fees. The higher their taker volume over the discount program's window length, the greater the discount traders can receive.
📄️ Request a freeform change
Freeform proposals allow the community to propose and vote on matters which don't change any of the behaviour of the currently running Vega blockchain.
