Twitter Post Due To Which Ethereum Name Service Kicked Out Millegan:
Millegan stated in his 2016 Twitter post,
“Homosexual acts are evil. Transgenderism doesn’t exist. Abortion is murder. Contraception is perversion. So is masturbation and porn.”
Ethereum Name Service (ENS) dubbed that ENS provides the ability to point a domain name to a crypto wallet. Users would be able to visit a .eth domain name instead of complicated crypto wallet addresses. Additionally, domains are tradeable in form of non-fungible tokens. As well, there are more than 675,000 registered names presently. While explaining the Ethereum Name Service (ENS) project in 2020 to CoinDesk, Brantly Milligan told that “Practically it means that now you can have a name under your ownership, that has all the decentralized and censorship resistance, and programmability of Etherum.”
Millegan Response On This Controversial News:
Milligan has not apologized for his words, referring to his religious beliefs. By a recent discord post, he reconfirmed that traditional-minded Muslims, Christians, and Jews should not be eliminated from Web3.0. Also, he has got supporting messages from the individuals who self-recognize themselves as being traditional followers of these religious groups.
Last weekend, the community representative from the Ethereum Name Service(ENS) DAO voted to eliminate Millegan. However, the vote was not unanimous, with some representatives alerting about the downfalls of “Cancel Culture” or the irony of Decentralized service centralizing all over the voice of one individual.
