DAO Member

Ink Finance allows any Web3 user to be a member of any DAO, as long as they vote with the DAO token and/or the Badge issued by the DAO.

A non-managing DAO member participates in governance by voting on the Open Proposals in the DAO, which requires that the user has staked the DAO tokens in the DAO's Staking Engine. Any portion of this user's staked tokens can be pledged to back a user's vote, which will be calculated into certain number of votes casted by this user.

During the period while the Proposal is open for voting, the pledged tokens are locked from withdrawing. Only after the Open Proposal expires can the user release the pledges.

A voter is always rewarded by the staking mechanism. Most DAOs will also likely to provide extra incentives to encourage members to participate in governance.

If a DAO requires its members to possess its Badge to cast votes, then the DAO's managers will go through the badge distribution to make sure that the voting members will get the badges before they can vote.
