Staking in the Governance System
By staking ICP inside Network Nervous System (NNS) neurons, token holders can participate in network governance and earn voting rewards. Withdrawing the ICP requires a notice period configuration called a “dissolve delay,” which refers to the timespan until the neuron is dissolved and the tokens are unlocked. Dissolve delays can always be lengthened, but can only be reduced in real time. A neuron’s voting power and corresponding voting rewards are proportional to the quantity of staked ICP, the length of its dissolve delay, and the amount of time that passes before the neuron begins to dissolve, which is its “age.” You can use the NNS front-end dapp to create and manage neurons, as well as vote on proposals.

* Voting reward percentages change dynamically over time and depend on the number of ICP token holders participating in network governance, as well as the dissolve delay and age of their neurons. (formerly ICP Maximalist Network)
Known Neuron

We propose that the ICP Maximalist Network neuron should be renamed to the Synapse.Vote neuron. A synapse is a site of communication between neurons in the nervous system, which seems like an appropriate metaphor. While the voting members and the general mission of the ICPMN neuron are not changing, this rebranding will establish it as a separate organization. All of the voting members of the neuron have collaborated on this transition and see it as a positive change for ICPMN and the IC as a whole.

Our manifesto and voting members are listed on our website You are invited to follow the new Synapse neuron on Twitter and join the conversation on Telegram.
