Validator DAO Council Q1 2022 Candidate: Validator.ONE
Validator.ONE is submitting our candidacy as a Validator DAO (VDAO) governor for Q1 2022. We will provide you with a brief overview of who we are, why we’re submitting our candidacy, and what we seek to accomplish as a VDAO governor.
Validator.ONE is an independent validator node on the Harmony network. We have been validating on the Harmony network since August 2019. As an early validator, we contributed to validating the blockchain’s first 3,375,000 blocks before the rollout of the current effective proof-of-stake (EPoS) model at block 3,375,104 in May 2020. At the implementation of EPoS, we created our validator node and participated as a delegator for seven months. In December 2020, we decided to rename our validator to Validator.ONE, created social media accounts and began reaching out to delegators. Our focus has always been on educating the community on why staking Harmony ONE is beneficial for the network and how to stake with independent validators. In January 2021, Validator.ONE became an elected Harmony validator, and we have dedicated ourselves towards being a responsible and trusted validator for our delegators and the network.
Validator.ONE is submitting its candidacy as a Validator.ONE governor to help facilitate discussion amongst Harmony validators and delegators while effectively communicating the VDAO’s role, responsibility, and efforts to the Harmony community. We also look forward to the opportunity to lend our experience as both an elected and unelected validator to new and aspiring validators through the Validator DAO bootstrap initiative program.
We are strong proponents of decentralization and blockchain technology. We adopt a forward-looking view and believe in the power of delegator choice. While we recognize the importance of sound governance, we do not intend to influence governance decision-making as a VDAO governor. We reserve the right to express our opinion as an individual validator but believe the VDAO as an entity should remain neutral and free from bias. However, we look forward to the opportunity to facilitate discussion amongst validators and delegators on governance matters. We feel strongly that the most sustainable way to decentralize the Harmony network is to grow the Harmony validator base by providing the tools and resources needed to become a successful validator.
