How to delegate tokens from the Treasury

DAO members can delegate their own tokens to experts, allowing the experts to vote on proposals with that voting power within the specific DAO. This gives experts a direct influence on the DAO's decision-making process proportional to the tokens delegated to them.

However, it's important to distinguish this from token delegation from the DAO's treasury to an appointed Local Expert. As explained earlier, a Local Expert can be delegated tokens directly from the DAO's treasury through a successful community proposal.

To delegate treasury tokens to a Local Expert, a standard proposal must be created specifying the expert and the number of tokens to be delegated. If the proposal passes, the designated tokens from the treasury are transferred to the Local Expert's wallet address, granting them voting rights equal to those tokens within that DAO.

4. Create a proposal
