#0 Referendum proposal: Remove Sudo and upgrade Bifrost Runtime to v0.8.5


In the previous Runtime upgrades, Bifrost used Sudo (super administrator privileges) to complete centralized governance upgrades. In this v0.8.5 version upgrade, Bifrost opened a democratic referendum for the first time to remove Sudo (super administrator privileges). All BNC holders can participate in this vote and vote on your attitude.

The removal of Sudo is an important milestone in the Bifrost mainnet’s path towards decentralization. Since then, anyone can submit a proposal by staking BNC and propose an on-chain upgrade to the Bifrost network, and all BNC holders will vote to make a decision.
