There are multiple steps to get a proposal through, and it takes a bit of time. (How much time will depend on the parameters of a given DAO.)
Each step requires input from DAO members to move forward.
Here’s the basic life of a proposal. :
- Proposal is submitted to a DAO.
- Proposal gets a sponsor from within the DAO.
- DAO Voting Period
- Grace Period
- Proposal Must be Processed
If you’re submitting a proposal remember to check on the time frames for each of these. When voting and grace periods are taken into account, it might take a week or more for a proposal to be approved and processed.
