Voting on DecimalChain

To make changes to the Decimal blockchain, the developers implemented a decentralized voting protocol.

Any user can submit a proposal to the validators to improve the ecosystem via their personal DecimalChain console.

Go to the main page of the website DecimalChain and open " Browser " in the top menu of the block " Tools "


In the top menu, click the "Voting" tab


You have got to the page where all proposals accepted and not accepted by validators are published, as well as the button "Add an offer". En-proposal3.png

Click the "Add Offer" button and a form will open for you to fill out. Fill out the form in as much detail as possible. After filling out the form, the "Add offer" button will become active.


Your proposal will be sent to the moderators, and you will receive an answer by email.


Voting process

In case the DecimalChain development team accepts your proposal, it will be submitted to the blockchain for a vote by the validators. The nine validators with the biggest voting power will make the decision. If ⅔ and more validators vote "Yes", your proposal will be implemented in DecimalChain. Otherwise, the changes will be rejected, and the information about the vote and its results will remain in the blockchain forever.

NOTE: The voting mechanics described in this article will be revised in the first quarter of 2022.

How do I see past votes?

In In the browser , in the tab " Voting " , you can get acquainted with all the past events.

Open the "Voting" page and you will see the cards of the past votes, their serial numbers and the result "'"Accepted""' or "'"Rejected""' . En-proposal6.png

In the title you will see the serial number of the vote and the title, below — the voting status, the hash of the transaction, the serial number of the block (the starting block) from which the voting began and the number of the block (the final block) on which the voting ended.
