In order for a Opal governance proposal to be eligible for voting, a proposal must first be published on the Opal Discourse. Proposals that are posted on Snapshot without an accompanying Discourse post will be terminated by the core team. It is recommended that users wait 3 days after submitting their proposal on Discourse before posting it on Snapshot. This time will allow for the community to provide feedback and allow for a more concise proposal to be published on Snapshot.

Opal Improvement Proposals (OIPs)

The OIPs serve to propose changes that improve the protocol. For example, this could be the introduction of a new smart contract or an update to some Omnipool parameters.
