Tezos, the smart contract platform which raised $232 million in an initial coin offering (ICO) in 2017, concluded their first round of voting for two competing system-wide upgrade proposals  named ‘Athens A’ and ‘Athens B’. Athens A won the majority by gathering a total of 18,181 votes out of a total of 25,855 community votes. Tezos Foundation stated in a blog post:

“The Tezos Foundation decided to remain neutral by not upvoting any proposals “¦. As noted, this contributes to the required quorum and further elevates the voices of other members of the Tezos community in this historic first vote.”

Athens A is going to introduce two backward-incompatible changes to the network.
