What Is a Governor Contract?
What is Governor?
Proposals can do anything that's on chain: send funds from a treasury, update the parameters of a DeFi protocol, change permissions of sub DAOs, mint NFTs, or modify the rules of the Governor itself.
How does Governor work?
A Governor contract manages proposals and their lifecycle (ie. proposal creation → voting on a proposal → executing a proposal).
A Governor contract also needs a token contract, which provides the Governor the voting power of different addresses.
Why do DAOs use Governor?
The main benefit of Governor is that the DAO's decision-making happens completely on-chain. Token voters don’t need to trust a third party to count their votes or to execute their transactions, because the smart contract does it entirely on-chain for them.
Additionally, DAOs can use whatever application they want to interact with governance, because anyone can call the smart contract.
