IoTeX Network Vote #1: Proposal Passes with 50%+ Participation

This past July 4th weekend, the IoTeX community celebrated the first network-wide vote via smart contract. Over 50% of all stakeholders participated over the three day voting period — a great achievement!

More than 95% voted YES and passed the proposal to expedite Consensus Delegates pool expansion, increase in epoch bonus rewards, and final private sale token distribution to July 2019. In this blog, we provide details on the voting results and proposal implementation.

Proposal Implementation

As a result of the successful vote, the proposal will be implemented in three separate steps in July 2019:

  • Final tranche of private sale tokens (6% of total supply) will be distributed during the week of July 8
  • Consensus Delegates pool will be expanded from 24 to 36 during the week of July 15
  • Epoch bonus reward will be increased to 18,750 IOTX (i.e., 450,000 IOTX per day) before the end of July

IoTeX Foundation believes that these changes will positively impact IoTeX , bringing further decentralization and security to the IoTeX network. Thank you again to our phenomenal community for participating in the first vote and stay tuned for more developments this month!
