Ethereum-based crypto exchange Ethfinex, also a spinoff of Bitfinex, has announced a transition towards the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). The exchange’s community lead Ben Wilson authored the blog post shared on June 11.
The DAO project built by DAOstack is referred to as efxDAO and has been allocated a trial fund of $5000, also will start with 21 founding members. Ben elaborates on the exDAO’s assortment of the 21 founders members into “three equally sized groups” consisting of largest nectar holders, active community volunteers and current Ethfinex staff.
The members working on the project are provided with an authority to decide how the funds collected should be spent. The efxDAO members would have to submit their proposals on Ethfinex’s platform, the blog post added. By vigorously participating in submitting proposals and casting votes, members eventually get to increase their voting power.
Last week, Ethfinex shared an announcement in a blog post titled, “The Ethfinex Token Vote Takes a Break,” wherein they talked about discontinuing the voting process to stay intact with the platform’s quality. Launched in 2018, the voting process is a way for Ethereum projects to submit their tokens and get listed on Ethfinex. Meanwhile, Ethfinex will take some time to inspect the voting process by analyzing it more in-depth and come back with a more enhanced version of the process.
Earlier this month, Ethfinex announced the launch of on chain decentralized over the counter (OTC) operation on Ethfinex Trustless. As per the announcement, the system includes no centralized order book or matching engine, adding that the restrictions are also imposed on financial instruments from the platform.
