Understanding the governance framework

What is governance?

Governance democratizes decision-making and aligns the interests of all participating parties by giving them a say in the future direction of the protocol.

Who can vote?

Random snapshots of staked EGLDs were taken between 12.11 and 21.11. All users holding at least 1 staked EGLD at the time of the snapshot can vote.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the more EGLDs you have staked during the snapshot period, the greater your voting power.

How many days will the vote last?

The voting procedure for this proposal will extend over 10 periods, from 23.11 to 03.12.

Comment les votes seront-ils exprimés ?

Yes: You agree that the MultiversX protocol should be updated with this version.
No: You do not agree that the MultiversX protocol should be updated with this version.
Veto: A ‘NoWithVeto’ vote indicates that a proposal is considered spam, disproportionately harms minority interests or violates MultiversX governance rules.
Abstention: Registers your vote as NEUTRAL for the switch, contributing to a fair and democratic decision-making process.

How can the proposal be adopted?

For a proposal to be adopted, a simple majority is required: more than 50% of votes must be UpVotes.


The Sirius 1.6 protocol update marks a strategic move towards operational efficiency and decentralized governance for MultiversX.

As stakeholders, your participation in the governance vote is key to shaping the future of this dynamic blockchain ecosystem.
