Validator DAO Council Q2 2022 Candidate:

Hello everyone,

My name is Cheta the Chief Validator for

Once again, I present myself at your service for the validator council for another term.

I came into the Harmony community in Dec 2020, sine then, this community has been instrumental to my learning, growth, and progress. In May 2021, I created my own validator as a means towards contributing to the decentralization of the Harmony protocol and giving back to the community. In October 2021, I presented myself to your services and you found me worthy to be part of the dynamic 9 governors of term 2 validator council.

I must confess, it was a teachable time for me and I am most honoured to have worked with with @frwrdslosh, @HankTheCrank, @ben2k_Stakeridoo , @Abraham, @Maffaz , @RhythmValidator , @ONE4All @Altocryptotitus and @BrotherOne . These guys possess the very team spirit, tolerance, integrity, and capacity to get the job done which is the spirit of Harmony and of which we did all of the time.

As I worked with your mandate in the VDAO term 2 council (Oct 2021 – Jan 2022), here is a summary of my achievements and what I hope to achieve in the next should you find me worthy of your mandate once again.

What I have done and achieved during my time serving in this council:

  1. Pioneered, created, and managed the weekly validator metrics and newsletter tracking validator nodes, maintenance, and workings of the Vdao.

  2. Designed and established the initiative to onboard validators from other regions in the world especially Africa. Currently there are no validators from Africa, Eastern Asia, Western Asia excluding UAE, South America excluding Brazil and Southern Asia. This is show more diversity and inclusion within the community. There are more validators from North America and Europe than any other region.

  3. Collaborated with my team members to forestall signage issues within the validator community.

  4. Ran online campaigns to help unelected validators gain traction.

  5. Assisted and rendered trial and error insight towards upgrading the validatortoolbox from the dynamic easynode guide for hertzner server.

What I want to achieve in the next council:

My next work can be put under the mandate of Participation and improving Harmony Validator Documentation. This is where my interest lies a lot as I hope to contribute my quota to the efficient running and decentralization of the protocol.

Consolidate on the monitoring and evaluation of the validator weekly metrics and newsletter. Begin the Vdao email newsletter subscription so that validators and community members receive weekly updates on the vdao statistics and achievements.

Liaise with the community in various regions to onboard new validators first on testnet and subsequently on mainnet.

Increase the participation of validator through rendering assistance in their creation and running of their validator while facilitating bootstrapping and promotion of those eligible for the vdao bootstrap funding.

Creating videos on setting up validator nodes manually and the validator toolbox so as to contribute to documents and visual literatures in this area which are few at the moment.

About me:

Wow!!! It’s awesome to see a familiar face runnning again for Term4, thank you for running!


Hello Cheta!

Take me under your wing! I’m so impressed by how much you have accomplished for our community! I was not even aware that we could be allowed the opportunity to have that much impact here.

I’ve tried many times to reach out and offer to help with various aspects of the Harmony Protocol community, but when I contact a department or project I’ve simply been met with silence. This tells me there is either a lot of people not checking their emails regularly here in our network or that maybe there are too many emails for them to handle?

Either way, I’m inspired by the sheer quantity and quality of your previous work. I hope we can work together in the future to make Harmony even better. Good luck on the election!


Words can´t describe the joy to see your aplication, thanks for all good work on the regional DAO and the relentless pursuit of transparency and rightfullness at the AFRICA DAO. I hope you can mirror those aspects at the VDAO.


Hello @xLabGuyx I am so happy to read this and humbled at the same time. I think there is so much more we can do for this community. a lot of opportunities and chances irrespective of the numerous shortcomings.
