3. Demo from Hedgey - Token Vesting Contracts + Delegation

Lindsey Winder from https://hedgey.finance

  • Front-loading governance, release tokens over time but allow future token holders to participate in governance
  • Demo shows how users select token, network, revocable status, time for vesting, etc. for clean UI of allowing token vesting
  • Receivers of tokens can choose to delegate voting rights to a different wallet address
  • Goal is to have people with 2 or 3 years of token vesting participate with full amount of tokens in governance

4. Update on Bylaws RFP

  • @KarelLemma, representing Lemma Solutions 3, has been selected as the party who will help draft the ENS DAO Bylaws
  • Firm has been working in the space for 3 years
  • Timeline: Will conduct a gap analysis, create first draft for feedback for socialization, create second draft based on feedback, then share that draft for community feedback
  • The Bylaws will be made available for review and comment in advance of a social vote that will propose their adoption, will take a few weeks until first round of social feedback is ready for review

5. Open Discussion

1. Weekly Endowment Updates (@karpatkey + @Steakhouse )


Endowment surpassed $80M for first time due to market increasing, primarily ETH

ENS Brand allows us to approach protocols for special investment opportunities, (e.g. reduced fees) focus is always on risk management and alignment to ENS values


2. General DAO Updates

1. Update on Bylaws RFP

Author Selection Process
Recevied applications from law firms and non-law firms. Reviewed examples provided by the applicants and selected what we believed was the best one.

Why go with non-law firm?
Two finalists were Lemma Solutions and law firm. Decision came down to fact that Lemma has provided DAO bylaws previously where law firm did not have that experience. Also, DAO was asking for a fixed fee and law firm was asking for hourly billing even though the RFP stated that ENS wanted a fixed fee.

Next Steps
Lemma Solutions currently working on a draft. Draft will be available for public review and comment.

Discussion: ENS Punks spoke about bylaws being a legal document, and how selecting a non-law firm was a confusing choice. ENS Punks made recommendations for improving the process and bringing more transparency and clarity to processes in the future.

2. Discussion on DAO Conflicts of Interest
Spike Watanabe requested technical discussion around how the DAO should consider handling conflicts of interest

Spike: If a steward is also a stream provider, conflict exists as steward would want future service provider initiatives to be super competitive where a stream provider wouldn’t.

Avsa.eth: Believe abstaining from every and all decision around service providers is enough. Learning exercise and should consider including in the bylaws.

5pence.eth: Thanks for bringing issue up, want to be ethically focused. Stewards can’t make decisions unilaterally, have to have buy-in from other stewards.


3. Eth Denver Updates - participation and plans

Register for ENS Happy Hour here: ENS @ ETH Denver · Luma, many more people registered than last year!

Will have booth and expect it to be very busy.


4. Open Discussion

Forum is paid for by the DAO and is a lively place for discussion. However, @5pence.eth gets complaints around forum not being policed, asked for thoughts around moderating. Please continue to think on this issue.

@estmcmxci believes in freedom of expression but thinks should be some moderating

@184.eth states that harassment not tolerated, policing needed in that instance. Is a moderator and currently moderates around structure

@coltron.eth wants forum to uphold a standard and believes conversation that lowers that standard looks poorly upon the DAO

ENS Punks: Conflict resolution is an important skill and constitution should incorporate how to achieve conflict resolution within the DAO including via the Forum
