  • Voting Start — a target block (shown on UI) will be chosen in advance, which will dictate the start of the current voting session (the upcoming voting period will begin on block 11,460,000).
  • Voting End — voting for the indicated period will end 40,320 blocks (~7 days) after the start block, at which point a new voting session will begin.
  • Voting Power — A snapshot of your $COVER balance and staked $SLP (in the shield mining contact) will be taken at the start block. It will be used as your voting power. You can adjust your vote unlimited times before the deadline.
