ENS is an open source blockchain-based naming protocol

About ENS

Started at the Ethereum Foundation in early 2017, ENS is a public good, a basic piece of Internet infrastructure that belongs to the community. Anyone and everyone is free to interact with the protocol as they are permissionless contracts on the Ethereum blockchain.

Managing the ENS root

To facilitate the possibility of upgrades and maintenance, the ENS root is controlled by a four of seven multisig, with members of related projects as keyholders. In the long term, we would like the root multisig to be replaced by some form of distributed decision making process, as such systems become available.
