This proposal is an extension of the [DAO Partner Program proposal] We propose to add the below partners to batch #1 of the program.
The success of the SSV.Network depends on its community, currently composed of highly technical and experienced individuals from the ethereum community.
The motivation behind this proposal is to enlarge the community by engaging, via SSV token ownership, with strategic companies (partners) from the ethereum staking industry.
We believe that together we can bootstrap ssv.Network with experienced operators, their communities and eventually mainnet ETH.
The DAO Partner Program was designed to accommodate continuous introduction of new DAO Partners over the course of 6 months.
AU21 Capital is proposing to purchase 8077 SSV tokens (for ETH or USDC) at the ‘batch 1’ reference price of 6.19 USD per 1 SSV(calculation table)
What AU21 Capital can bring
“We run validator nodes for many protocols and we would like to run a node for SSV with at least 99.9% availability to secure the network To shift more than 1000 staked ETH to SSV network from our network. We would like to bring ecosystem partners to SSV network, like mining pools and exchanges pools “
“We think the decentralized method which SSV is adopting is the future of how governance should run. This sets precedence for other types of DAO and regulation.”
