Phases 2: BIP

The BendDAO Improvement Proposal (BIP) is the second step in the BendDAO governance process where a BIP can be created after the BRC has passed in the forum.

For emergencies, the BendDAO dev team has the right to go through Phase 2 directly.

BendDAO governance keeps moving forward to decentralization. Now community members can not only create BRCs and BIPs but also on-chain voting. BendDAO is in the hands of the community and veBEND holders' votes decide the future development of BendDAO.
