Solend votes to invalidate Solana whale’s wallet takeover plan with second governance vote.
Brief introduction: Solend is an algorithmic, decentralised protocol for lending and borrowing on Solana. Anyone with an internet connection can earn interest by lending their assets and can use their deposits as collateral for borrowing.
Why it matters:
Solend, a lending protocol based on Solana, has passed governance proposal SLND2 that reverses Sunday’s “emergency powers” plan to take control of the whales’ wallets
The SLND 1 proposal was brought up to take over a whale’s account so that funds can be withdrawn instead of automatically liquidated on the open market
The proposal was approved, triggering criticism from members of the community to condemn the move and calling it the opposite of what DeFi should be and outright illegal
The Solend team initiated a second governance proposal afterwards. The SLND2 received 1,480,264 “yes” votes and 3,535 “no” votes, with a majority of 99.8%
