This Trusted Node function enables multichain governance and promotes awareness about issues being voted on across various PoS blockchains and communities.
There are two types of governance available on the Trusted Node platform (see Trusted Node DAO).
Direct DAO Governance
Anyone who owns $TNODE can become a DAO member and vote on the Trusted Node DAO and the Trusted Node platform issues. Each member has voting power proportional to the $TNODE tokens they deposit into the DAO escrow.
Indirect (Multichain) Governance
In PoS, only the staked validator nodes are allowed to vote. Trusted Node users who staked native coins to PoS can vote as a collective using the aggregate voting power of the DAO-represented validator nodes.
