The Ethereum Name Service has announced the airdrop of the DAO token. The token is freshly new, but it is taking over by storm with major price gains. The news is creating a lot of buzz on Twitter. ENS is one of the leading platforms that offer decentralized naming services. The airdropped ENS token will be a governance coin issued to the existing name registrants. Those who have already received the token are enjoying major gains.
Ethereum Name Service airdrops ENS token
The Ethereum Name Service airdrop was announced on November 1, and it will be one of the ways the project seeks to achieve decentralization. The platform stated that through this token, governance would be passed over to the community. The community can then use these tokens to make applications to be ENS delegates.
The announcement reads in part that “Specifically, we wish to have the Ethereum Name Service 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 ENS airdrop was not open to everyone but only to those with an existing ENS domain. More than 137,000 accounts were eligible for this airdrop. The platform also urged holders who had no interest in voting to give their tokens to the delegates.
