xGov Program

The xGov program is a community-sourced solution for proposing measures into traditional Algorand Governance. It aims to further decentralize the governance process and empower users in decision making on Algorand.
Folks Finance support xGov sign-up in Algo Liquid Governance starting from Governance Period 7 Q2 2023. When committing your ALGO on Folks Finance, users will have 2 options: sign up as an xGov or sign up as a general governor.
If one chooses to be an xGov, the Algo rewards that one would have received are now the xGov’s voting power in the xGov program.
Note you will not be able to change your decision to be an xGov or not after you have chosen in the current period.
Once Folks Finance registers an xGov, it is the xGov’s responsibility to fulfil all further requirements in order to maintain their eligibility in the xGov program
Traditional Governors may continue to use Folks Finance and will never have to worry about becoming ineligible or losing rewards due to not voting. Folks Finance will proportionally allocate unused voting power equally among the Folks Finance Governors who voted in a given period.
