Risk Rating
What we like
ENS has intrinsic value as the native governance token used to direct the future outlook of the protocol. ENS holders can vote delegate their voting power to a community member.
What we like less
ENS currently does not accrue any actual value from the protocol itself as all trading fees are directed back to liquidity providers (LPs).
What it means for you
Allows you to gain exposure to the largest distributed, open-source naming system.

Things to know about ENS

What is ENS used for?

ENS is the governance token for the Ethereum Name Service DAO. The primary use for ENS is to govern the future direction of the DAO. The ENS DAO employs a delegated governance structure where token holders are encouraged to entrust their voting power to a community member with shared views on the protocol's outlook.

ENS tokenomics

The total supply of ENS is capped at 100M tokens. 25% of the token supply was scheduled to receive an airdrop to ETH addresses that were registrants of a .ETH domain name. Addresses receive tokens in proportion to the total time of their past registration and future registration as of the airdrop snapshot date (October 31, 2021). Active users of ENS domains, identified by the status of their primary ENS name, received a 2x multiplier as the ENS DAO determined this group of users were actively growing usage. Contributors were also allocated 25% of the total supply, with core contributors receiving about 19%. The remaining 50% of the supply was allocated to the DAO treasury to fund future growth opportunities.

How does ENS accrue value?

The ongoing success and adoption of ENS domains is expected to accrue value to token holders through positive price impacts. ENS token holders also have a say in the use of the DAO treasury.
