Remember, that you don’t lose your AIR by voting on referenda - they are just locked for the duration of the vote. After that, they will be available for transfer again. You can make your vote count for more by voting with conviction which means that you can vote with up to 6X the amount of tokens you have, by locking them for a longer period of time.


If you want to know how voting with conviction works, you can see a short explanation in this post.


Council motion 22 and Council motion 23 have passed.

The vote for referendum 9 is now open for 10,800 blocks (~2.25 days with an average block time of 18 seconds) so you can use your AIR tokens to vote on it.

This Runtime Upgrade will enable the launch of pools on Altair.

Please vote here .
