If for any reason issuing an on-chain proposal is not adequate to your needs, you still have the option to create an off-chain proposal. An off-chain proposal is intended for proposals that do not require any on-chain code execution. The proposal would be distributed on some third-party channel (e.g., a forum) and the voting would be done off-chain. The result of the voting would be computed off-chain and then submitted to the ledger.
Create the same json file as in the on-chain proposal and use the following command:
namada client init-proposal \ --data-path proposal.json \ --offline
This command will create a
proposal file same directory where the command was launched.
To vote on an offline proposal use the following command:
namada client vote-proposal --data-path proposal \ --vote yay \ --signing-keys your-signing-keys-for-voter \ --voter your-established-account \ --offline
To compute the tally for an offline proposal we need to collect
proposalfile (must have this name)
- all the
All those files will have to be in a folder (lets call it
Now you can use the following command:
namada client query-proposal-result \ --offline \ --data-path `offline-proposal`
which will tell you the proposal result.
The community may decide to post data of their off-chain voting to another censorship resistant blockchain to preserve the decision reached by social consensus.
