☢️Avoid unnecessary proposals

To prevent unnecessary proposals or abuse of the system, all governance proposals must obtain a minimum deposit of 512 Luna. If 33.4% of the total vote is NoWithVeto, quorum is not met, or the minimum deposit isn't reached, the deposit will be burned. All other vote outcomes get their deposits refunded. For more information on deposits and refunds, visit the governance overview.

  1. Open Terra Station and connect your wallet. In the sidebar, click Governance.

  2. Click on New proposal.

💡Community feedback

Before uploading any proposal, try to get community feedback on the Terra Agora research forum. Do not use text proposals to suggest parameter changes. For more information, visit the Governance module reference page.

  1. Select the type of proposal, enter a title, a description, and the amount of Luna you will offer for initial deposit.

  2. Enter your password and click Submit.

Your proposal will enter the two-week deposit period. After a minimum deposit of 512 Luna has been reached, your proposal will enter a one-week voting period. For more information on governance and voting options, visit the governance overview.
