Before you can take part in the voting process on realms, you need to deposit $GRAPE in your account. Depositing your $GRAPE on realms is also a requirement to be eligible for any Membership Rewards.
In order to be able to vote on realms, you must at least deposit 1 $GRAPE. The more $GRAPE you deposit, the more voting power you have. Depositing on realms is quite easy. Just head over to https://realms.today/dao/GRAPE and follow the steps below:
Deposit your $GRAPE
- 1.Connect your wallet
- 2.Your available $GRAPE for depositing
- 3.Click on 'Deposit'
There is no option to adjust the amount of $GRAPE to deposit. Once you click on 'Deposit' the contract will allocate all $GRAPE in your wallet to the realms deposit.
By clicking 'Deposit' you need to approve the transaction. Be aware that you need some $SOL in your wallet  in order to proceed. Approving  the transaction will deposit all your $GRAPE in realms.
Withdraw your $GRAPE
If the withdrawal fails, it may be that your $GRAPE are still locked in an active vote. Try and release them first (see below).
Access your account
To release your $GRAPE, simply click on 'View' to access your realms account.
Release your $GRAPE
Once in your account, click on 'My proposals'  and then 'Release all' . This will release all your $GRAPE from all votes. Be aware that if you release $GRAPE from any ongoing vote, your voting will be withdrawn.
