Aragon project updates: September 2020
Optimistic Snapshot, Conviction voting, NFTs, and more DAOs powered by Aragon!
September was a transformational month for Aragon and marked breakthroughs in scalable voting, user ownership, and experimental governance.
Let’s dive right in!
Optimistic Snapshot 📸
Optimistic Snapshot makes token voting scalable and binding. Tokenholders can vote with just a signature (for free) and after the vote anyone can enact the proposal on-chain via a DAO. If someone tries to enact an illegitimate proposal it gets disputed and sent to Aragon Court. Big, big breakthrough. Read more →
