Token House History

# Seasons and voting cycles

Token House governance operates on a seasonal schedule. Seasons are separated with a Reflection Period. Reflection Periods may be followed by Special Voting Cycles to adopt proposals that come out of the previous Reflection Period.

During each Season, Token House voting occurs via three-week voting cycles. Voting Cycles begin on Thursday at 19:00p GMT (12p PST) and end on Wednesday at 19:00 GMT (12p PST).

During Reflection Periods, the Optimism Foundation will publish a proposed changelog to the Operating Manual and a set of governance proposals aimed at addressing the feedback received in the previous season. Reflection periods are coomprised of Special Voting Cycles during which we vote on proposals to modify the collective's structure.

You can see up to date information about the seasons and voting cycles in the governance calendar (opens new window).

At the time of writing we're entering Season #5: January 4th - May 8th, 2024
