Venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz voted against a Uniswap proposal

Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), a venture capital company, allegedly engaged in a vote that was cast against a final proposal to instal Uniswap v3 on the BNB Chain by making use of the Wormhole bridge, as stated by the Uniswap DAO forum. This information was taken from the forum where it was posted.

On February 2, 0xPlasma Labs submitted a governance request on behalf of the Uniswap Community asking for permission to deploy the most current version of Uniswap on the BNB Chain. This request was made by 0xPlasma Labs. During the preliminary vote on the proposal, there were 20 million votes cast in favour of it, which is equivalent to 80.28 percent of the total, and 4.9 million votes were against it (19.72 percent of the total). On February 5th, the venture capital business used its 15 million UNI holding to cast a vote against the resolution. This action was taken in opposition to the move. The motion that was made was in direct opposition to the action that was executed.

Although there had been a total of 23.4 million votes cast previous to the publishing of this article, just 3% of all UNI tokens had engaged in the voting process at that point in time. This was despite the fact that there had been a total of 23.4 million votes cast. According to the schedule, the final day that voters will be able to cast their votes will be on February 10th. This day marks the end of the voting period.

The disagreement stems from the fact that a cross-chain bridge wasn’t properly planned for before the deployment was carried out, which is the primary source of the problem. The Wormhole bridge is used inside the framework of the proposal, and a16z offers support for the incorporation of LayerZero as the interoperability protocol. In the paragraphs that follow, consideration will be given to each of these facets in more depth.
