Proposing Oracle Data

This tutorial describes how to propose answers to data requests. The data could be anything from token prices, to who won a basketball game, to whether an optimistic governance action is valid.

Step 1: Go to the Optimistic Oracle dApp, if you are answering requests on a live network like Ethereum, Optimism, or Polygon, or go to the Testnet dApp if you are answering requests (probably your own) on Goerli.

Step 2: Locate requests under the Requests tab for outstanding requests.

Step 3: Click on the request you are interested in proposing data for.

Step 4: Click the 'Connect wallet' button in the top right corner and go through the steps to connect your wallet. Confirm you are on the same network as the data request.

Step 5: Before proposing, confirm the details of the request and ancillary data to ensure you are proposing accurate data. You may also want to check the instructions in the UMIP for the identifier.

Step 6: Once you are sure of the proposed value and connected to your wallet, input the value and click the 'Submit Proposal' button.

Step 7: Confirm the transaction details through your wallet provider. After confirming, the proposal will be sent!
