DigixDAO Community Voted to Dissolve the Project

In January of this year, the DigixDAO community voted in favor of a proposal (named Ragnarok) to dissolve the project. The team at DigixDAO will, therefore, carry out the wishes of the community. The decision to dissolve was as a result of community members voicing their dissatisfaction with the project over the years. In a medium blog post, the DGD team thanked everyone that believed in the project since its inception in March 2016.

DGX and Digix Will Continue to Exist

The team also explained that the dissolution of DigixDAO will not affect DGX and Digix.
