MNGO is a governance token whose ownership grants voting rights on proposals to dictate Mango Markets protocol's future.
Mango Markets' code maintenance and future releases are reliant on successful proposals to update the smart contracts owned and controlled by the DAO. 3.9 billion un-circulating MNGO tokens are locked in a smart contract, only accessible via DAO governance votes.
Always do your research when voting. There is a #governance channel in Mango Markets' Discord to discuss proposals and ask any questions you might have.
