Drafting a proposal

The draft-proposal command in the Evmos CLI is part of the Cosmos-SDK governance module and is used to generate a draft proposal JSON file. This generated proposal JSON file contains a skeleton structure for a governance proposal.

Command Syntax

evmosd tx gov draft-proposal [flags]


To create a draft proposal using the evmosd tx gov draft-proposal command, follow these steps:

  1. Run the command

    evmosd tx gov draft-proposal
  2. The command will present a list of proposal types for selection. The available options typically include:

    Use the arrow keys to navigate: ↓ ↑ → ← 
    ? Select proposal type:
    ▸ other

    In case you don't find the required proposal (e.g. update params), choose the other option. It will show an extensive list of the supported messages:

    ✔ other
    Use the arrow keys to navigate: ↓ ↑ → ←
    ? Select proposal message type::
    ↑ /evmos.erc20.v1.MsgConvertERC20
    ▸ /evmos.inflation.v1.MsgUpdateParams
    ↓ /evmos.revenue.v1.MsgRegisterRevenue
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process. The command will generate a JSON file that you can use for your proposal.

  4. Once the JSON file is generated, you can make any necessary changes to the proposal information within the file.

  5. Finally, use the generated JSON file as input when submitting your proposal using the evmosd tx gov submit-proposal command.
