Alpha Dune

Stakeholder Overview

1. Token holders


DUNE token holders (Token holders) have the right to vote within the scope of governance of Alpha Dune DAO. They can vote with their vested and unvested tokens and delegate their voting power.


Token holders are encouraged:
  1. 1.
    To actively participate in decision-making processes, by expressing their opinions on proposals, discussions, and voting.
  2. 2.
    To delegate their voting rights to trustworthy individuals or entities, if they cannot actively participate.
  3. 3.
    To fully understand the consequences of their votes by conducting their own research to ensure informed decisions. If they are not able to commit to this due diligence, delegation is recommended

2. Delegates

Delegation process

The delegation process is off-chain. Token holders can delegate their votes to any address of their choice. The current delegation system requires full delegation of the voting power. Partial delegation may be implemented. Token holders can redelegate or undelegate at any time.


Delegates can vote on behalf of token holders who delegated their voting rights to them. Delegates may not delegate their delegated voting right to someone else.


Delegates should be actively involved and responsible for representing the interests of the token holders, participating in decision-making processes, and facilitating transparent and effective governance. As such, delegates should provide a short reasoning on each of their votes on Snapshot through its commentary function.
