ENS calls for new delegates
ENS has not yet shared details on its ENS tokens in terms of how many tokens will be distributed or minted in total. However, the blog mentions that the” tokens will open for claiming a week from today, (snapshot was made yesterday), with more details about it then.”
“Specifically, we wish to have the ENS root multisig pass over control of the existing ENS treasury, its future funds, and control of the.ETH registrar contract that is in charge of the pricing and registration mechanism for.ETH names,” the team wrote, adding:
“The first order of business for the ENS DAO will be to formally request these from the ENS root multisig key holders. Starting today, people may nominate themselves as ENS governance delegates.”
A DAO or a decentralized autonomous organization can be described as an open-source blockchain protocol that is governed by a set of rules. The rules are created by elected members of the community that does not require any intermediary.
The blog also lists that it’s the decision to evolve as DAO seems to be “a good model of governance to begin with” and also highlights the rules of self delegation and voting for the same.
The organization is seeking individuals and groups who are interested in the growth and longevity of the ENS to come forward and contribute their expertise as efficient delegates for the company in the long run.
