Delegation is a mechanism through which SSV holders can entrust their voting power in snapshot to one or more chosen delegates. This is done through our SSV Karma Dashboard, which is a permissionless system so anyone can delegate voting power to anyone else and they can end that delegation at any time.
To learn more about the need for delegation, read the announcement blog post here.
A delegate is any member of the SSV DAO community who has been elected to represent other token holders and vote on their behalf by delegation. Delegates are elected by token holders who choose to grant their voting power to them. Delegates are required to follow the protocols defined guidelines and must act in the best interest of the token holders whom they represent.
Delegation never involves the transfer of custody of assets but rather just the vote weight those assets represent in the Threshold DAO.
