Product Overview

We want to provide a mechanism for SNT Holders to be able to vote on proposals and features using their token balance.

Each token represents 1 vote, and the balance can be allocated proportionally between the different options a proposal may have, in order to determine the interest level and priorize features.

Requirements & Dependencies

The final goal for this DApp is to be managed via Liquid Democracy. Idea #172 needs to be implemented before the final iteration of this swarm is completed
