Participants in the Eximchain governance protocol vote on which nodes conduct consensus for the network through Quadratic Voting. In such a system, n votes cost n^2 tokens to cast. At the end of each governance cycle, all tokens cast as votes are redistributed evenly between the voters.
The redistribution provides a crypto-economic incentive to participate in network governance. For example, casting one vote for one token guarantees a return of >1 token if another person chooses to buy more than a single vote as a consensus contributor.
