Cardano Takes a Step Towards On-Chain Governance: Interim Constitution Released

The Cardano community can rejoice! The long-awaited Interim Constitution has been released, marking a significant step towards on-chain decision-making for Cardano. This interim document provides the essential rules needed to implement CIP-1694. However, it’s not the final say. A final Constitution, ratified by Ada holders in late 2024 or early 2025, will be shaped by the desires of the Cardano community.

The Interim Constitution: A Foundation for Stable Transition

The Interim Constitution isn’t a fully fleshed-out document. Instead, it’s a set of core rules designed to ensure Cardano’s stability during this transitional period. Later this summer, stakeholders (SPO) and the community will continue testing as nodes upgrade to enter the bootstrapping phase. You can find the Interim Constitution on the new Constitutional Committee Portal, the Knowledge Base, and the GitHub repository.

Making Governance Accessible to All

The release of the Interim Constitution and technical safeguards marks the next step towards bringing a candidate node online for on-chain decision-making. Intersect, a core pillar driving on-chain governance, is providing funding opportunities to develop community tools that support Cardano’s governance. Earlier this year, they launched grants for three governance tools, with Bloxico selected to develop the Constitutional Committee Portal. Up next are the Proposal Discussion Forum and DRep Campaign Platform, developed by Intersect members WeDeliver and LidoNation respectively. These grants are crucial for Voltaire to create tools that increase participation and access to Cardano’s on-chain governance, ultimately leading to better on-chain outcomes.

Next Steps: Drafting the Final Constitution

The Interim Constitution Committee will uphold the rules and safeguards set out in the interim document, maintaining the security of the network throughout the remaining transition period. We’re currently in the final stages of establishing the Interim Constitution Committee. Voting via the Summon platform to choose the three community members who will join Intersect and pioneering entities IOG, EMURGO, and the Cardano Foundation closes on June 23rd. The community response has been fantastic!
