Explore the Democracy organization

2.2.1 Home app

The Home app welcomes you to your organization and offers you several options for different actions you can take. You can also use the menu on the left-hand side of the screen to view the different apps that are currently installed for your organization. Aragon currently has the Token Manager, Voting, and Finance apps installed, plus default Permissions, App Center, and Settings "System" apps.

2.2.2 Token Manager app

The Token Manager is the app you use to mint new tokens and assign them to yourself or other entities.

You can mint new tokens by following these steps:

2.2.2.1 Click “Assign Tokens” button

Enter the address of the recipient of the tokens and the number of new tokens you want to mint and assign to that address, then click “Assign Tokens”.

2.2.2.2 Create vote to assign tokens

Even though you are the only tokenholder, the Democracy organization still requires a tokenholder vote for every action. Click “Sign Transaction” to sign the transaction that creates a new vote to assign the new token you want to mint.

2.2.2.3 Vote "Yes" to approve the “Assign Tokens” vote

Go to the Voting app, click on the "Assign Tokens" proposal you just created, and vote "Yes" to approve minting and assigning the token.

2.2.2.4 Check out the newest member of your organization

Your organization just went from one to two members. A good start to a new Democracy organization!

If a vote is cast that causes the quorum to be equal to the support required (e.g. 60% support with 60% quorum) then the vote will execute automatically. If the quorum is less than the support required (e.g. 60% support with 40% quorum) then additional "no" votes could still stop the vote from being passed, so the vote will remain open until the duration is reached. After the vote ends, the result must be enacted manually by one of the tokenholders in the organization.

2.2.3 Voting app

The Voting app makes it easy for you to poll your fellow tokenholders about their position on an infinite range of topics. Votes initiated by other Aragon apps also show up in the Voting app. For example, assigning tokens using the Token Manager or moving funds from the Finance app are each actions that require a vote by tokenholders in a Democracy organization.

Follow these steps to create a new vote and poll your community about a topic you care about:

2.2.3.1 Click “New Vote”

Fill out the question you want to poll your community about and click “Begin Vote”.

2.2.3.2 Sign transaction to create new vote

Click the “Create transaction” button, then open your Ethereum provider to sign and send the transaction.

2.2.3.3 Ask the other tokenholders to review and vote on the proposal

Rally your fellow tokenholders outside the app - for example, by email, forum, chat room, or good old fashioned face-to-face - and ask them to review and vote on the proposal. Tokenholders can visit the Voting app to see the list of open votes and cast their ballot accordingly.

2.2.3.4 Other tokenholders cast their vote

In this case, the other tokenholder in the organization supports the proposal. They sent a follow-up email saying that they will vote "Yes".

2.2.3.5 Review the vote

Since there are only two tokenholders in this organization, and the Support parameter is set to 51%, the unanimous vote on the proposal has resulted in an approved vote, and the vote has automatically been "Enacted". A vote with a status of "Enacted" does not need any further action to be taken.

2.2.4 Settings app

The Settings app is where you can find the internal addresses for your organization, view or modify your network settings, as well as troubleshoot issues you are having with Aragon. When using testnet you also have the ability to request test tokens, which will be sent to the organization’s Vault app.

2.2.5 Finance app

The Finance app is the app that provides tokenholders with access to the funds held by their organization. The Finance app shows the current balance in ETH and tokens as well as the transaction history of the organization. You can also use the Finance app to initiate a new transfer of funds.

Follow these steps to create a new transfer from the Finance app:

2.2.5.1 Send ETH or tokens to your organization

On mainnet

Go to the Finance app and click the “New Transfer” button. On the “Deposit” tab, enter the token you want to deposit, the amount, and an optional reference note. Click “Submit deposit” to complete the transfer. About a minute or so after your transaction is confirmed, the funds will appear in the Finance app of your organization. You can then create a new transfer to withdraw these funds to another address.

On testnet

Go to the Settings app and press the “Request test tokens” button. Open your Ethereum provider to sign and send the transaction. About a minute or so after your transaction is confirmed, test tokens will be available in the Finance app of your organization. You can then create a new transfer to send these tokens to another address. Tokens can also be sent to your testnet organization using the "Deposit" method mentioned in the "On mainnet" section above.

2.2.5.2 Click “New Transfer” to initiate a new transfer from the Finance app

Go to the "Withdrawal" tab then enter the address of the recipient and the amount of tokens to send them, along with an optional reference note about what the transfer is for. Then click “Submit withdrawal”.

2.2.5.3 Sign the transaction to create the New Transfer vote

As mentioned before, all actions in the Democracy organization require a vote by tokenholders. Click “Create transaction” then open your Ethereum provider to sign and send the transaction that creates the New Transfer vote.

2.2.5.4 Vote on the transfer

The transfer has to be approved by tokenholders. Cast a "Yes" vote to approve the transfer and have the other tokenholders in the organization vote as well.

2.2.5.5 The vote transaction is signed and sent to approve the transfer

After confirmation, the transfer will execute.

2.2.5.6 Review the transfer in the Finance app

Go back to the Finance app to see a record of the transfer and a link to the transaction record on the blockchain.
