Wall Street Games is governed entirely by WSG token stakers via voting escrow.

Voting Power

Time Weighted Voting

Time-weighted voting is used to provide long-term WSG token holders greater governance weight and control of the protocol.

The unit of the governance voting power is xWSG. It is received by staking locked WSG tokens and is non-transferable. The xWSG balance decays linearly as the remaining time until the staked or locked WSG unlock decreases.

Launch Auction and Team & Investor Weighting

Launch Auction and Team & Investor WSG tokens receive xWSG equal to the weighted-average duration of their token lockup. This normalizes these xWSG balances with the voting escrow model.


Changes to the WSG protocol must go through the Community Forum with a proposal. Proposals can be discussed in the Forum to gain sentiment and are classified as "Core" and "Other".

Core Proposals

Core proposals are suggested by the WSG Foundation. The minimum for the vote to pass is 4,000,000 xWSG.

Other Proposals

Other proposals include all changes to the WSG protocol suggested by the community. The minimum for the vote to pass is 4,000,000 xWSG.

The Voting Process

The voting process is designed to drive discussion for all proposals, which are then effectuated upon community approval and voting. Proposals must adhere to the below governance process.

  • Proposal Stage All WSG Token holders are eligible to submit non-binding proposals, which may result in a governance vote by holders of xWSG voting power.

  • Voting Proposals with a positive poll sentiment can be submitted to Snapshot by any holder of 275,000 xWSG, or from Admin wallets on Snapshot. Core and Other proposals have voting periods ranging between 24 hours & 120 hours.

Proposal Blocktimes

When voting on a proposal, a WSG holder's voting power equals the holder's xWSG balance at the blocktime the proposal was submitted. As such, any xWSG acquired after the submission of a proposal cannot be used to vote on the proposal.

WSG Foundation

The WSG Foundation is dedicated to supporting the growth, development, and sustainability of the protocol. Their efforts will include:

  • Community-led initiatives

  • Partnerships with other DeFi & crypto organizations

  • Marketing & communication initiatives
