Cardano initiates Delegate Representatives (DReps) in the first phase, elected by ADA holders to advocate and vote on governance actions. In the second phase, a constitutional convention convenes in Buenos Aires for governance representatives to draft the inaugural Cardano Constitution.

Ratification: Community Approval of Cardano Constitution

The culmination of the governance journey occurs with the ratification of the Cardano Constitution, marking the final phase of decentralized governance implementation. Subsequently, following drafting in Buenos Aires, the broader community will vote on adoption, solidifying the constitution as the cornerstone of Cardano’s decentralized governance model.
