How to Use Democratic Rights?

Introduction of democratic rights

At this stage, democratic rights are mainly embodied in public proposal and referendum. Public proposal gradually means that anyone can bring up any specific proposal. It calls privileged function at runtime (that includes the most powerful call: set_code, which is able to switch out the entire code of the runtime, achieving what would otherwise require a “hard fork”). In each fixed period, the most seconded proposal will be selected and goes to a referendum. Referendum also has a fixed time for voting and then are tallied and the function call is made if the vote is approved. Referendum is a simple, inclusive, mortgage-based voting scheme, which mainly affects the weight of the vote are according to different lock-up period and lock-up amounts.

All referenda have an enactment delay associated with them. This is the time period between the passing and the implementation.

Tip:

In the later, we will have a proposal forum similar to polkassembly. Everyone can put forward a text proposal in the forum. After the majority approve, then initiate an on-chain proposal by calling a privileged function.
