DAO means decentralized autonomous organization. It’s a place where user's vote determines farming rewards on the FlatQube DEX.
In the last Epoch, the GVMMNY/INDMNY pool appeared as a voting candidate and received part of the rewards but previously he:
⏺paid 1k QUBE for the pool listing
⏺locked 33k QUBE for 4 years in order to vote
So the pool creator didn't bypass the system, but simply seized the moment of the low activity in the DAO. What todo do: vote more actively for your favorite pools!
"We will upgrade the system, and later we’ll be announcing some improvements to the pool listing mechanism and proposals release" — pointed out the developer.
