Governance on Aptos and How To Get Involved

Aptguv 1.1

The topic of governance is frequently asked about on the Aptos socials. Community members want to know more about how they can get involved. The following are the best resources to learn about and do governance on Aptos for the curious :white_check_mark:

The first place to learn about Governance on Aptos is on the Aptos.dev website which is rich in resources that show users how to do many things, including tutorials where anyone can learn how to make their own NFTs, Coins, Fungible Assets, Dapps and more such as learning how to run an Aptos node, utilize the software development kits, etc.

For a several months after Aptos first launched on mainnet, only users that were running a validator node and staking 1M APT could vote on proposals. However this was changed through Aptos Improvement Proposal-28 - Partial voting for on chain governance:

“With delegation_pool.move, end users are able to participate in staking, but the delegation pool owner votes on behalf of the entire pool. Partial voting proposes changes to Aptos Governance by enabling delegators to participate in on chain governance and vote on governance proposals in proportion to their stake amount.”

Since then, there have been more advancements in the way that community members can vote on proposals.

Community members can sign into Govscan through either a Gmail account or a Github account. They can then connect their Petra wallet to engage in the governance process.

After this, users can subscribe to the Aptos blockchain governance page and view the proposals that are currently active for voting.

Users will also be able to connect their Petra wallets to the governance page in order to participate in the on-chain governance process as long as they are staking the minimum of 11 APT through one of the active validators that can be found on the Aptos Explorer delegated staking page.

Community members will be able to see the current status of the Aptos Improvement Proposals and whether they are awaiting execution, executed, failed, rejected, or voting in progress.

As of now, there are no active proposals so please stay tuned to the governance sites on Govscan and the Aptos Foundation governance site.

Hey genuine thanks for sharing this. i see a lot of chat about Dapp usage, hackathons, etc - all of which are important - but there isn’t much talk about the actual governance of the project. even if not everyone participates, it’s important to at least be informed about the process. kind of how it’s good for citizens to know about how the elections in their country / province work. this is really important guys!

Thank you all for commenting and reading ! And well said @bloxyy , the governance process is very important and it also allows the Aptos community to get more involved in this aspect of the project. There is a-lot to learn when it comes to the Aptos Improvement Proposals that the fine minds at Aptos Labs are proposing and pushing through based on votes in the governance process and this is all worth learning about.

Cheers and have a good day ! :sun_with_face:
