What is a proposal?

Proposal is the key element of the voting system. It presents a change suggestion related to a specific organization and enables eligible users to cast their vote.
A specific voting system (single choice, weighted, quadratic, and others) can be selected individually for each proposal.
Voting power for each user is calculated on the basis of the voting strategies selected in the space settings.

Snapshot block number

When you create a proposal by default the snapshot block number will be populated with the latest block synced from our node.
The voting power of each user will be calculated for the state of the blockchain at this specific snapshot. It means that if user acquires required tokens after the proposal has been created, they will not be taken into account for their voting power calculation.
