Anyone can propose a discussion on modifying one or several network parameters, however, only super representatives or super representative partners can submit voting requests on-chain. Before the voting deadline, 27 super representatives can vote on the proposal. After the voting deadline arrives and the number of votes meets the requirement, the proposal will take effect.
