How to delegate your votes in the Space Race

Spaces are independent art galleries on SuperRare. Each Space has the power to curate, promote, and sell groundbreaking work by artists of their choice. You can read more about them here.

But who gets to be a Space? That's where the SuperRare community comes in. By holding $RARE, you can vote on which curators and collectives can earn the privilege of Space.

Got some $RARE? Did you look over all the current Space Race contestants, and now you know your favorites? If yes, you're ready to vote – read below to find out how, and continue reading for instructions on how to delegate votes.

Note: Voting with $RARE does not spend it! You can hold it as normal in your wallet once the Voting Period wraps.

How to vote in the Space Race

Step 1: Make sure you have $RARE voting power, and review how voting works

If you need to acquire $RARE for voting, check out our Help Desk article How do I get $RARE?. Please make sure you do so prior to the Voting Period begins. #RARE purchased during a given voting period will not be able to be counted.

  • Will I still have my $RARE when the Race ends? Yes! Voting ≠ spending.

  • Can I change my vote after I cast them? Yes. If you need to free up some voting power, simply lessen the amount you've already allotted on the respective potential Space(s) you voted for.

Step 2: Go to

Go to and connect your wallet that holds $RARE.

Step 3: Make sure your wallet is properly connected

Once your wallet is connected, you will see a Menu on the top right corner. You can add additional wallets if you have $RARE spread across them.

If you're having issues with connecting, you may need to disconnect, then reconnect your wallet that holds $RARE. As with many Web3 websites, wallet connections can sometimes be imperfect, but you need that connection to properly vote.

Step 4: Verify Voting Power

Verify that your voting power matches your total tokens held in the wallet.

Step 5: One Last Review

Review eligible race candidates and the details of their Space applications so you can make an informed decision about your vote.

Step 6: Vote!

Distribute your votes to as many contestants you feel are deserving. You can cast your $RARE in whatever proportion reflects your feelings and wishes for the SuperRare network.

How to delegate your votes in the Space Race

Looking to transfer some of your voting power to another community member? You can do so by delegating your $RARE tokens to another person to vote on your behalf. This does not change ownership, just voting power in the Space Races.

Before you delegate, please be aware of the following:

  • Once $RARE has been delegated to you, you cannot delegate tokens.

  • Once you've delegated $RARE, you cannot vote in the Race. This includes with any $RARE delegated to you after you've delegated your own.

  • Once you've delegated $RARE, you cannot retrieve / re-delegate until after voting has closed.

  • You cannot specify how much $RARE you want to delegate. Delegating will transfer the voting power of all $RARE that you hold.

  • You can only delegate $RARE that was held or purchased before the snapshot of the given Space Race voting period took place.

  • If you have $RARE of your own, you can still receive $RARE as delegation. It will combine your previously held $RARE with the amount delegated to you.

  • If you already began voting, you can still receive delegated $RARE.

Once you're clear on the above information, complete Steps 1-4 in the above instructions for voting, and use the following additional steps.

Step 1: Select "Delegate" from the top right-hand menu

Step 2: Enter the wallet address of the person you wish to delegate to and press delegate

Before you delegate, please be sure you are aware of the information above! Do not delegate to someone who has already delegated their votes – they won't be able to use the $RARE, and you will not be able to retrieve it for the voting period.

Be very sure you are willing to give up your voting power before transferring it, it will be theirs to use until the Race closes. Double-check that address before hitting delegate!
