Voting and Gauge Weights

The Curve system allows veCRV holders to vote how CRV inflation is distributed by assigning weights to each pool's "gauge".
As a holder of veCRV, Convex Finance can participate in these voting procedures, and these voting rights are passed to vote locked CVX holders.

Voting Rules and Information:

  • Voting will be done via Snapshot.
  • Governance proposals are weighted respectively by their vlCVX vote outcome. Thus if 60% of vlCVX votes for YES and 40% for NO, Convex will submit an on chain vote for 60% YES and 40% NO.
  • Gauge weight votes will be bi-weekly, starting Thursdays at 00:00 UTC and ending on Tuesdays 00:00 UTC.
    • Other governance votes will be addressed as they arise.
  • Curve ownership governance votes will have a quorum of 15%; Curve parameter governance votes will have a quorum of 15%; gauge weight votes will not have a quorum.
  • Individual CVX holders may spread their votes among multiple pools in gauge weight votes.
  • Each gauge must receive at least 0.05% of the votes before weight is assigned.
Convex Finance multi-sig is still required to sign to establish outcomes of all CVX Snapshot votes, for both governance and Curve gauge weight votes. In almost all cases, we will vote in-line with CVX holders. However, Convex and Curve benefit each other, and proposals considered to be blatant attacks damaging either protocol will not be signed for.
