TOKENS DISTRIBUTED TODAY
Hello Everyone! As mentioned before we will be distributing the token before the end of the day. The poll results are in and the 3s have it for a total token supply of 9.2 billion.
Moving forward once tokens have been distributed (today sometime after 3pm PST more or less), governance will happen on snapshot.org. We started this DAO with the mission to help free Ross Ulbricht, a man condemned to die in prison for creating an e-commerce website that introduced hundreds of thousands to crypto.
None of us would be here today without Ross and we must do everything in our power to stand up against this injustice and help free our friend. Over the past few days, people with direct knowledge of Ross’s legal situation, including his family, have advised not naming the token $ROSS for various reasons. We have decided to respect these recommendations and rename the token to $FREE. This has not been an easy decision to make after the fact, but ultimately there is a life at stake and we as a team would not be able to sleep at night if any harm came to Ross from our actions.
And in many ways, $FREE is the perfect name. Silk Road was built because Ross fundamentally believed people should be free. Free to make their own choices. Free to live their lives. So let’s get to work, let’s help free Ross, and let’s bring awareness to all those serving insane sentences and make the world a safer place for free people.
*Remember, this is not a financial speculative play. We are all here to help free Ross and reform the criminal justice system.
