New year, new delegation?
As we begin a new term, now is a great time to review your ENS delegation.

Token holders of $ENS token delegate votes to Delegates, who participate in the governance of the ENS protocol by voting on DAO proposals.

Visit ENS Agora, where you can see more information about the Delegates, including their voting record, and delegate your votes.

:handshake: Get Involved

Thank you very much for reading! Take care.


Thanks as always!

@Coltron.eth (or any of the other stewards), could someone create a new updated Dashboard post for Term 3?

The previous dashboards have been extremely helpful to link to newbies interested in becoming involved in the DAO!


I will be attending every working group call this term to provide notes, and I would be happy to make a dashboard after we get everyone synced, so I can find out what the schedule is and clarify what other resources will be beneficial this term.

Edit - here it is


Thank you for these updates much appreciated!
