The DAO has two main parties, the Guardians who submit and approve proposals and the Ambassadors who can freeze the entire DAO in place. A Guardian is a participant of the DAO who submits proposals for the improvement of Kadena’s ecosystem. This includes adding features to the existing DAO for more capabilities or submit proposals to use the DAO’s funds to increase Kadena’s awareness such as community marketing initiatives. Since Guardians have powers that will affect the ecosystem, one must lock up 500,000 KDA. This is the only requirement, and this version of the DAO does not have rewards. That said, Guardians will have an outsized impact on the future of KDA, including the ability to build this DAO’s replacement. Once a proposal has been submitted, there is a 1 day cooldown period before guardians can approve and execute it. Proposals only live for 3 days, after which they time out and are no longer executable.
