Earn Rewards For Governance Participation
Voting in KyberDAO happens fully on the Ethereum blockchain. If you stake KNC in epoch “n”, you will be eligible to vote in epoch “n+1” (next epoch onwards).
Connect your Ethereum wallet, and go to the Vote tab. You will see the current proposals which you can vote on.
Weigh your given options, make your choice, and click “Submit vote“. Kindly note that once voting is successful, you may CHANGE your vote, but you won’t be able to REMOVE your vote.
Yes, you can delegate your voting power to someone else e.g. a friend’s address. Once you have staked KNC, you have an option for delegation. You have to delegate your full KNC stake (no partial delegation) and can only delegate your KNC to one Ethereum address at any time. Stakers who delegate their KNC stake are also known as voting pool members.
Reminder: If you stake KNC in epoch “n”, you or your delegate will only be eligible to vote in epoch “n+1” (next epoch onwards).
Step 1: On the Stake KNC page → Select Delegate tab
Step 2: Connect your wallet
Step 3: Paste the Ethereum address that you want to delegate voting power to → Click ‘Delegate’
Important: In this default delegation method, your delegate is responsible for voting on your behalf and distributing your KNC rewards to you (though your delegate can’t touch or withdraw your own staked KNC). Kyber Network does not hold your funds or manage this process. KyberDAO voting is operated using the blockchain and is fully transparent and verifiable.
Yes, the voting process is fully transparent. Since voting is an on-chain operation, it will have a transaction hash and other details that will be available for anyone to review on etherscan. Results are achieved through a democratic process - proposal options with the highest voting points win.
Once the proposal campaign period is over, votes submitted are considered final. But there is a delay period prior to the execution of the proposal to provide time for the Kyber community and DAO maintainer to highlight any major issues. For less critical (short timelock) proposals, the delay is 12 hours, while for more critical (long timelock) proposals, the delay is 7 days.

On the Vote page https://kyberswap.com/kyberdao/vote, connect your Ethereum wallet, and go to the Your Voting Reward tab. You are able to view all your unclaimed rewards and claim them.
To be eligible for 100% of your share of the rewards, you need to have staked KNC, participate in every DAO vote, and have your KNC staked for the entire epoch.
If you have delegated your voting power to someone else, your delegate must have voted on your behalf. It is up to your delegate to distribute rewards to you.
Stakers can claim their eligible rewards from previous epochs whenever they want. In general, rewards are generated after every 1-2 epochs (2-4 weeks), assuming you have voted in the previous epochs. If you delegate your vote to someone else, it is up to them to decide how often they want to distribute rewards to you.
