In the DeXe DAO Studio, proposals are the primary means through which changes, upgrades, and decisions are made.


Experts are individuals or collective DAOs recognized within the DAO community for their proficiency in specific fields. They play a crucial role by reviewing, analyzing, and offering insights on proposals pertinent to their expertise. Their function is to ensure decisions are well-informed, technically viable, and advantageous for the ecosystem.

Local Experts

Local Experts can be individuals or DAOs acknowledged by a specific DAO for their expertise and reliability. They are distinguished by their ability to be delegated tokens, a feature not available to regular members. In a linear governance model, every token equals one vote; hence Local Experts do not inherently possess more voting power. In contrast, within a meritocratic model, their votes may have more influence than those of ordinary members.

Global Experts

Global Experts, designated by the DeXe DAO, hold privileges across the protocol:

  • Badge of Distinction: A special badge identifies them as Global Experts.

  • Universal Delegation: They can receive token delegations from any DAO, irrespective of their status as a Local Expert.

  • Proposal Influence: They are entitled to create and comment on on-chain proposals across DAOs without needing to hold tokens of those DAOs.

  • Accountability: Their status can be revoked by DeXe if they act detrimentally to the protocol's interests.

Like Local Experts, Global Experts can be individuals or collective entities. Their key benefit is the capacity to receive token delegations from across the DAO network. Their voting power, particularly in a meritocratic model, can exceed that of standard users, depending on several factors including delegated votes and their token holdings.

Voting Power of Experts and Delegated DAOs

The voting influence of Experts and DAOs with delegated power reflects their collective expertise. Their votes on proposals, therefore, have a substantial impact, especially on matters requiring specialized knowledge. While they have enhanced voting power, it's balanced with the wider community's participation to prevent centralization of authority.
