I just claimed my $ENS governance tokens and am now a voting member of the Ethereum Name Service DAO. I decided to not delegate my tokens at this time. My primary ENS name is thingelstad.eth.

This transition of ENS into a DAO has been incredible to watch. NiftyTable has a great writeup on it.

ENS is one of the best case studies for why people should care. The community now owns and governs a public good they use everyday that has billions of dollars in treasury.

ENS is leading by example how a decentralized entity can operate, provide real value, and be sustainable.

For comparison, this would be like going back to the early 1990’s and having the community involved in the structure of the DNS system.
