As the old saying goes, “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.” The same goes for protocols in the crypto space. If people don’t participate in governance, they’re essentially giving up their power to make decisions that could impact the entire community.
Not participating in governance is a missed opportunity to have a say in the direction of the protocol, because at its core, participating in governance is about being an active member of the community and ensuring that the protocol is making decisions that are in the best interest of all.
When it comes to Mars, participation in governance is critical. Because:
So, if you’re not already participating in governance, now is the time to get involved.
Since Mars Protocol is decentralized, governance discussions can start and take place anywhere. The governance forum on marsprotocol.io website is also a good place where proposals can be discussed in detail.
Proposals can also be submitted on the website or by interacting directly with the smart contracts. If you want to submit a proposal using the marsprotocol.io website, go to the Council area and click in the New Proposal button.
Once a proposal is submitted, anyone who holds xMARS can vote on-chain. This is to ensure that those who have skin in the game are the ones making decisions that could impact the entire community.
If you’re not sure where to start, the best way to get involved is to simply start participating in the discussions. The more you participate, the more you’ll learn about the process and the more impactful your participation will be.
