VeChain Foundation Announces the First Ever All-Stakeholders Voting Results
VeChain Foundation, acting in line with the request of the community behind the cryptographic project announced the results for the first-ever All-stakeholders voting that successfully ended at 10 AM on December 30, 2019.
The voting was reportedly conducted by VeChain Foundation to attain the stern goal of striking balance between the community-based decentralization and the efficiency of the enterprise-level execution.
VeChain sees the community members as the most important stakeholders in its government. This idea brought about the first-ever stakeholders voting that was widely publicized at the ending of 2019.
The voting was eventually conducted, and the community decided by unanimously voting for the permanent implementation of the block list related to the recent theft perpetrated by faceless hackers, which resulted in the carting away of funds from the VeChain Foundation buyback wallet.
This aided the introduction of VeChainThor v1.1.5. The participants of the voting included Economic X Nodes, Authority Masternodes, Economic Nodes, and the non-Node holders that got along and involved in the voting process across many social media.
