Aragon project updates: September 2020

Optimistic Snapshot, Conviction voting, NFTs, and more DAOs powered by Aragon!

Hey everyone!

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 📸

If someone tries to enact an illegitimate proposal it gets disputed and sent to Aragon Court. Big, big breakthrough. Read more →
