STEP 1: Discuss your proposal on the forum or Discord
- Forum: Post a discussion in the Pre-Proposal discussion
- Discord: Start a discussion in our Discord channel
STEP 2: Setting up the proposal
Post your proposal on the forum in the proposals discussion, this allows community members to view, access and comment the proposal. Copy the short URL (below the button "Reply"), you need it later on.
Or - follow this Google Doc Proposal Template (copy)
The final proposal should include the following subjects:
- Monthly payment
- Number of months / payments
- Description of who you are, your reputation, and experiences
- In-depth description of the proposal
With the governance model, there needs to be a reasonable amount of trust that the proposed work will actually be completed if the proposal is passed. If you are a brand new member, consider starting with a small proposal first. This may help to improve your credibility and ability to deliver on time and budget.
STEP 3: Submit proposal to the Blockchain
A proposal voting will be ended on each superblock, so make sure you have enough time until the next superblock appears to promote your proposal
The block heights and approximate dates of future superblocks can also be seen below:
Block Height Estimated Date:
216000 Fri. 8 June 2018 15:30:00 UTC
259200 Sun. 8 July 2018 15:30:00 UTC
302400 Tue. 7 August 2018 15:30:00 UTC
345600 Thu. 6 September 2018 15:30:00 UTC
* 388800 Sat. 6 October 2018 15:30:00 UTC
- First get the next superblock
Tools > Debug console, type:
- Now you can prepare the following line (you can scroll it to the right)
mnbudget prepare <name of proposal> <URL to proposal info> <number of months> <starting block> <payment address> <monthly payment amount>
Save this line in a text file somewhere, you are going to need it later
Tools > Debug console and paste the line
This will deduct 50 Crave activation fee from your wallet (and will be burned)
Save the hash given after this command
After the proposal has 6 confirmations, get the same prepared line and add the given hash to the end. And change prepare to submit:
mnbudget submit <name of proposal> <URL to proposal info> <number of months> <starting block> <payment address> <monthly payment amount> <preparation hash>
STEP 4: Edit your proposal post/ template
Add the following text:
create your details to post Proposal
"mnbudget vote-many <vote hash> yes" to vote in favor
"mnbudget vote-many <vote hash> no" to vote against
"mnbudget getinfo <name of proposal>” to check the status
STEP 5: Gather Community Support
Once the proposal is submitted, you can then verify it on https://crave.cc/proposals (it could take a few minutes to update). Information on how to vote for each proposal can be found in the information button.
It is your job to rally the community to vote for your proposal, which includes telling people when the proposal is running, how to vote, and posting on any media to gather more votes. The Crave team will not help with this aspect (unless it is a team member submission), as it could be seen as unfair or biased.
The ability to pass the current and future proposals depends largely on your ability to both communicate effectively, and deliver on the proposed work. To increase your chances of success, consider linking your work to a website, adding a video, or being available on social media channels to answer any questions that others may have.
