Protocol Governance

Details surrounding the protocol's governance process and the $IONX and $CHARGE tokens

Overview

The Charged Particles community shapes the protocol's direction. Holders of Charged Particles' official governance token, $IONX, can propose and vote on Charged Particles Improvement Proposals (CPIPs) that directly effect how the protocol works. CPIPs are binding and the results of all votes are stored on the Ethereum blockchain.

In addition to voting on Protocol Changes, $IONX holders will also be periodically allowed to vote on which art should be featured on app.charged.fi, but those votes will remain non-binding for the time being.

Individuals who hold $CHARGE but no $IONX will not be able to vote.
