October 20, 2019 Summary of the first year of Decred’s Politeia governance module.

In its first year of existence, the on-chain governance system has considered over 50 proposals and allocated over $3.5 million in DCR to various initiatives across areas including marketing, software engineering, and market making. Proposal voting rights are conferred to Decred ticket holders, who participate in the Proof of Stake aspect of its consensus. The average voter turnout was 30% of tickets; this does not imply that 30% of DCR token holders participated, as individuals can own zero or multiple tickets. Dash’s treasury and public proposal system allocated over $4.5 million in DASH over the past year, though it is likewise difficult to infer how many individuals participated.
