The final step to initiating reward distribution is for the Switch node owner community to ratify the Charter for the Switch Blockchain.
What is a Charter? The Distributed Governance Framework (DFG) Charter specifies how Switch node owners will exercise governance over the blockchain and Switch digital rewards.
How will the node owner community ratify the Charter? All Switch node owners will be notified via email 5 days prior to voting commencement to make the community aware of the dates voting will take place and the opportunity to review the Charter. Node owners will receive a second email when voting begins with instructions on when and how voting will be conducted.
How will voting work? In the email received, node owners will be provided a link where they can log in to a dashboard, read the Charter, and vote "yes" or "no" on the question of ratification of the Charter.
Are node owners required to vote? No, no node owner is required to vote. However, we would love for all node owners to take the opportunity to read the Charter.
How long will voting be open for? The opportunity for node owners to vote will be available for 5 consecutive days.
