The RING governance token is collectively responsible for managing the Ring DAO.
RING's total initial supply is 1 billion. The minting capability is controlled by an appointed minter address (this is different from the Minter💰 role). The minter is originally set to the Ring DAO Timelock.
The code for RING is forked from the Uniswap UNI token, where 2% inflation cap is removed.
