Date: 21.01.2021 / Version: 1.0.1 (beta testing)

Hello Everyone,

We’re moving to a point that we dreamed of back at the launch of PhoenixDAO, whilst we are developing V.2.0 of the PHNX Spot Staking platform and working on the integration of Numio technology we have kicked off beta testing. This guide will evolve as the DAO gets updated but right now, to see what the testers are playing with we are sharing the DAO guide.


Installation and Configuration

MetaMask Installation

An Ethereum Wallet in your Browser. MetaMask is a browser extension for storing cryptocurrencies and accessing Ethereum enabled distributed applications or “dApps” in your browser.

  • Go to your browser extensions and search for MetaMask and then add that extension to the browser.

MetaMask configuration

  • Initially, you will be asked to import the wallet or create a new one.
  • If you have already created a wallet before then import it using it’s private key otherwise select to create a new one.
  • MetaMask will provide you with the secret phrase this is required for recovering a private key. Download it, memorize it or write it down someplace safe and make sure no one else can get access to it. If you are to lose this and lose access to your funds they are lost!

  • On the next step it will ask you to enter the phrase in the same order as it was originally presented.
  • And then just after reading and agreeing to their terms and conditions Boom!, your decentralized wallet is created on MetaMask. To access it click on the MetaMask icon on the top right corner of your browser (where you will also find your other extensions.

Submit A Proposal

To submit a proposal, follow the following steps

  • Navigate to the Proposals section.
  • Click on the Submit button on the top right corner of the screen.
  • Here the user can submit his proposal.
  • On Submitting Proposal users MetaMask extension open’s and users have to pay a transaction fee.
  • After submitting, the proposal will not be visible until it gets verified and it can either get accepted or rejected.
  • If the proposal gets accepted it moves to the first round of voting where other users can upvote on the proposal.

  • This is the first section of submitting a proposal.
  • Here the user enters his personal details.

  • This is the second section of submitting a proposal.
  • Here the user gives the general details of his proposal.
  • You also give the reason for submitting the proposal and the reason for using our platform.
  • Collateral is the amount of PHNX users need to provide in order to get the proposal approved, this is a pre-set amount controlled by the DAO.

  • This is the third section of submitting the proposal.
  • Here the user breaks his app down into individual milestones.
  • Users can add any number of milestones.
  • Users must set the estimated days required for the completion of the milestone and also the amount of PHNX which each milestone requires from the DAO grant.

  • This is the last section of submitting a proposal.
  • This is where all the milestones are listed down.
  • The user can review his milestones and delete any milestone if needed.

  • Here the users vote on the Proposal if they think it is going to benefit the project and its users, the community will also decide whether the fee is competitive based on the grant request. If the Proposal gets the required amount of votes in the required time frame, then it moves to the voting section.
  • The amount of votes and the time-frame is pre-set in the app before submitting a proposal.
  • Proposals can have different voting time and minimum votes required for them to move to the second round of voting. Initially these parameters are pre-set by the core team.
  • Each user can only vote once, this is a free off-chain vote.
  • The voting date assigned to the proposal depends upon the date it gets the minimum upvotes.
  • If a proposal passes the first round of voting before the 15th of the month then the proposal’s second round voting date gets assigned to the following month.
  • If a proposal passes the first round of voting after the 15th of the month then the proposal’s second round voting date will skip the following month and go live the next month.

Let’s understand the voting dates by way of an example. Suppose we have two proposals by the name of “A” and “B”, let’s suppose “A” moves to “Voting” on the 14th of January so it will get the Voting date of 2nd February, it’s because it got the required votes before 15th of the month. Now coming to the proposal “B” let’s say it moves to “Voting” on 17th of January so it will get the Voting date of 2nd March, it’s because it got the required votes after the15th of the month

This section has two divisions.


  • This is the second round of voting.
  • These are the proposals on which the users can stake once their date is reached.
  • Here the users can stake on the Proposals.


  • These proposals have passed through the off-chain voting section and have either passed or failed.
  • Passed — the proposal gets the status of “Accepted” and can be viewed on MyProjects → ActiveProjects tab. The user can now start working on his project and can mark his milestones complete, and after review the user can get the funds they requested.
  • Failed — the proposal will get the status of “Rejected”. The proposal can only be viewed on the MyProjects → Proposals tab. The user cannot get his funds because the proposal couldn’t reach the criteria but the user can make changes to his proposal and can re-submit his proposal as a new one.

  • This is the second round of voting.
  • Users can stake on the Proposals by clicking on the “Vote now” button.
  • No matter how much you stake it would only be considered one stake.
  • Users can stake a maximum of 20,000 tokens for a maximum 365 days.

The MyProjects section has two divisions.

  • Active Projects.
  • Proposals.


  • In this section users can view their ongoing proposals.
  • The user who submitted the proposal can now mark his milestones completed.
  • These milestones will first be approved before being marked completed.
  • They can also be marked as incomplete depending on the progress of the milestone.

  • In this section a user can view only his proposals regardless of the status.
  • The user can also delete his proposal if it’s not approved yet.

  • In the future versions we will integrate Numio KYC to ensure a level of security, safeguarding from bad acting and compliance. As the Blockchain space matures it is important to recognise future trends..
