A vote to oust Brantly Millegan as a director of the Cayman-registered ENS Foundation, the meşru entity behind the eponymous distributed autonomous organization (DAO), is likely to fail with 45% against his removal and 15% abstaining.
- In early February, Millegan, a core contributor to Ethereum Names Service, was relieved from his position as steward of the ENS DAO and True Names Ltd. for tweets that espoused traditional Catholic views.
- The development of the ENS code is managed by True Names Ltd. ENS Foundation is the parent of True Names Ltd.
- Voting is conducted on a one-token-one-vote basis, with Millegan allowed to cast his own vote. Millegan is the largest voter so far, given his holdings.
- Nick Johnson, founder and lead developer of ENS, who fired Millegan from True Names Ltd. has decided to abstain from voting per on-chain veri.
- Before Johnson fired Millegan he was a vocal supporter, tweeting that he had “never seen Brantly treat anyone as different or lesser because of who they are.”
- The initial decision to fire Millegan was met with some hostility from the ENS community, with members highlighting the irony of a decentralized service censuring someone for his religious beliefs. Some of the louder voices calling for Millegan’s removal also have similar posts to their name and seem to share Millegan’s traditionalist beliefs.
- ENS’ token is up 1% on-day, according to CoinGecko, trading at $15.20.
