What is dissolve delay?
The dissolve delay is a setting on your neuron that determines the minimum amount of time that you have to wait before you can unlock your original locked ICP utility tokens. When you use the “Start Dissolving“ command, your dissolve delay will start decreasing with the passage of time. The length of the dissolve delay can enhance your voting power, and therefore your voting rewards. The higher the dissolve delay, the higher the reward. The maximum dissolve delay is eight years. If the dissolve delay is below six months, you can’t vote. While the neuron is dissolving, the age bonus is zero. You can pause or increase dissolving whenever you want.
