Proposing to the Dymocracy

It is permission-less to propose to the community but requires a deposit of 1000 DYM to reduce the likelihood of spam, anyone may contribute to the deposit. The deposited amount is returned to the submitter(s) upon completion of the proposal period (even if the proposal is declined). The deposit is burned if the community votes No with veto which should be reserved for proposals that are spam or percieved to be harmful to the protocol.

Community members have up to five days to deposit the minimum required amount of DYM and five days to vote on the proposal after the deposit minimum is reached. Submitting a proposal may be done via the CLI or third-party user interfaces.
