Terra Blockchain DAO Governance Proposals

Terra Blockchain DAO is governed by LUNA holders through its Governance process. Though Governance LUNA holders can effect change on the protocol by submitting petitions, also known as “proposal”. Once a “proposal” is submitted then it will be open for voting. LUNA holders can voice their opinion by casting their votes (1 LUNA = 1 vote) either to accept or reject the proposal. Once a proposal reaches a consensus threshold then it is either implemented or rejected. You can view all Governance Proposals over here.

Here are few example: Allow a CSV download of all transactions based on wallet address, Columbus-4 Upgrade Governance Proposal
