Chainbase embraces a governance model based on rough consensus and running code. Changes are driven by proposals, community buy-in, and the implementation of running code. The consensus process involves different stakeholders:

  1. Workers - Provides blockchain data
  2. Developers - Build and create manuscripts
  3. Consumers - Pay CBT query data network
  4. Delegators - Delegate CBT to worker & secure the network

This model avoids rigid structures, voting, or official roles, promoting action, diversity of viewpoints, and decentralization. Most changes follow the CIP (Chainbase Improvement Proposal) process.
