The tokens represent a say in the governance, through the DAO, pertaining to the operations of ENS. You can find more information here: Welcome to ENS DAO - ENS Documentation or you can simply click oon Docs above.

Welcome, and congrats on your $ENS purchase!

You can either self-delegate or delegate your voting power to another individual on Tally.

If your tokens are held on a centralized exchange like Coinbase, you’ll need to transfer them to another wallet (not on a centralized exchange) before you can interact with them on WithTally.

Note: 2651 tokens is a considerable amount. Please make sure you’re using good security practices and never share your seed phrase. I would personally split them up, hold them in a hardware and/or multisig wallet. If this is all foreign to you, we can point you to well-known and reputable sources of information.

If you chose to delegate, a list of delegates can be found here: ENS DAO Delegate Applications. If you can’t vote or do not have time to stay up to date on topics, this may be a good option. Delegations can be changed at anytime and they do not affect the tokens in your wallet, only your voting power.
