Now the organization behind the project, the Synthetix Foundation, is to be liquidated. Instead, governance will shift to three Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs):

  • ProtocolDAO - controls updates and protocol configuration;
  • grantsDAO - responsible for financing various initiatives;
  • synthetixDAO - settlements with platform participants.

Against the background of the news and the general upward movement of the market, the Synthetix Network token has grown by almost 16% over the past day.

The project also managed to return to third place in the DeFi Pulse rating.
