You can join the DAO in two ways:
Every month, users can also get whitelisted for reputation-based voting if you are noted as one of the community’s most active members across Swash’s social media channels. With this voting eligibility option, all voters carry the same weight.
As Swash uses Snapshot to host the DAO, the amount of tokens you hold on the date a token-based proposal goes live is what determines your voting power. The weight of your vote depends on the amount of tokens you hold, so the more tokens you hold on that go-live date, the higher your weight when voting.
