How do tokens get selected to be included in a community listing vote?
In 2019 we launched our new token listing process in conjunction with the Kleros token curated registry. We believe strongly in our community being involved in as much of the decision making as possible in Ethfinex - our new process enables anyone to submit any eligible token to a pool. The community will then vote on 12 randomly selected tokens on a monthly basis. Find out more at the following links.
What types of event am I able to vote on?
Currently there are two major categories of events where you can vote:
1. Token listing selection.
2. Any Ethfinex improvement suggestion made by the community. These can include new fee structures, governance methods, referral schemes, or Nectar token functionality. Further, into the future we envision users voting on all operational decisions affecting the platform.
How do I vote?
Visit the community listing dApp (decentralised application) at nectar.community. You can vote by connecting your Metamask, Ledger or Ethereum Keystore wallets to nectar.community.
What is the purpose of the Ethfinex Discussion forums?
The goal of the discussion forums is to foster learning around new tokens and to allow interest in new tokens to be evaluated from crowdsourced ratings and comments. Users receive a reputational rating based on the quality of information they provide. A higher reputational score carries more weight with respect to token ratings.
When will Ethfinex launch on-chain governance?
This is difficult to say and is likely still a long way off, as blockchain based governance is still unchartered territory. We’re working as part of the Aragon Working Group to share knowledge and expedite on-chain governance.
