Staking & Voting
Stake $VRN in the governance vault to vote on Varen Improvement Proposals

How voting works

When you stake $VRN in the Varen Governance contract, you will receive $yVRN, which gives you the ability to vote on Varen Improvement Proposals (VIPs) posted to the Varen Snapshot page. Voting power is 1:1 with the amount of VRN staked in the Governance contract.
