Any decisions to be taken on the Persistence chain require a proposal to be sent on-chain. This forum post aims to discuss the idea of shortening the voting period from 14 to 7 days, before submitting a proposal on chain.
Currently the voting period is 14 days. This blocks implementation of proposals for 14 days, which is a long time to introduce important changes. E.g., in case of upgrading to cosmosSDK v44 -due to 14 days of voting period- the upgrade was on halt even after successful deployment on testnet.
The upcoming upgrades and changes that can be expected in the next 2-3 months are:
- cosmos-sdk upgrade to 46,
- tendermint upgrade to 35
- liquid staking (pstake)
- proposals for adding new chains or liquid staking
- increasing block params to accommodate for the requests
- cosmwasm integration,
- interchain accounts.
Although some might be clubbed in releases, the idea is to have good functionalities released to the chain rather quickly.
Send out a parameter change proposal for the Persistence chain, that will reduce the voting period from 14 to 7days.
