How to revoke tokens to the Treasury

Just as DAO members can delegate their own tokens to experts, granting them voting power, they also retain the ability to revoke those delegated tokens at any time. This allows members to reclaim their voting influence within the DAO as needed.

Similarly, the DAO itself can revoke tokens previously delegated from its treasury to a Local Expert. To initiate this process, a new proposal must be created to revoke the token delegation. If this proposal passes a successful community vote, the tokens are automatically returned from the Local Expert's wallet to the DAO's treasury.

Revoking delegated treasury tokens from a Local Expert follows these key points:

  • It requires a new proposal and community vote to pass

  • If successful, delegated tokens are transferred back to the DAO treasury

  • This removes the Local Expert's voting power derived from those tokens

  • The DAO retains flexibility to adjust token delegations as needed

This ability to revoke token delegations upholds the principles of decentralized governance within the DAO ecosystem. It ensures that token allocations to experts can be modified based on changing DAO requirements or community sentiment.
