Governance in Binance Chain

Originally Binance and trusted blockchain industry partners, BNB stakers and validators are involved in the governance process. Binance aims to gradually decentralize the Binance chain governance. Binance Chain has already its own built-in governance module. Anyone can submit a proposal to add a new trading pair upon deposition a certain BNB amount. Then, the proposal will be up vor a vote among BNB holders.
