Ethfinex Voting Tokens (EVT) are distributed to Nectar Token (NEC) holders based on the Nectar Token balance held by user on the date the vote begins. EVT is used to vote for token listings on Ethfinex every two weeks. Up to fourteen tokens that requested to be listed on Ethfinex will be put up for a community vote. The top 3 tokens are chosen and will become tradable on Ethfinex.
Ethfinex Voting Tokens are spent when voting for one of the tokens on the list. All unused voting tokens at the end of the voting period will expire and the EVT markets on Ethfinex will be cleared. Users will be required to vote or sell the voting tokens before expiration to avoid any loss. Tokens withdrawn to external wallets will also expire and balances will disappear at the end of the vote. This tokens will automatically expire across all wallets. Ethfinex Voting Tokens are then reissued based on user's updated NEC balances to be used in the next token listing vote and the EVT market begins again.
You can monitor the currently ongoing vote on the https://nectar.community site. This system allows Nectar token holders to easily vote from their own Ethereum wallet, or delegate or sell their votes to new members or those who wish to support a particular token on the list without selling or spending their Nectar tokens.
