VDP-128 [Governance] The Network Steward role


Proposing Laurence Ion for a Network Steward role


Zuzalu.city was a huge success. Laurence Ion was one of the Core Organizers, along with Vitalik Buterin.

He also initiated Vitalia.city, a network society designed for the VitaDAO community to coordinate in physical locations as well, with the ability to govern its laws and regulations and run decentralized clinical trials in a better regulatory framework.

He transitioned out of the Dealflow Steward role, as he was mostly needed for strategic activities, like fundraising, recruiting, building relationships, advocacy (speeches, interviews, etc), community building & in-person gatherings.


The responsibilities will include:

  1. Maintain engagement with new and current strategic members and contributors
  2. Advocate for our mission at events, conferences and in interviews
  3. Grow VitaDAO’s in-person presence & coordination
  4. Negotiate with governments for progressive and permissive jurisdictions to create longevity cities / zones and inspire existing states to become the “Silicon Valley” of Longevity
  5. General business development
  6. Strategic support
  7. Representing token holders as a delegate


Upon passing of this proposal, Laurence Ion will have the Network Steward role. We are drafting further proposals to complete the picture, including an assessment of Vitalia.city.

Laurence is the man for the role! Here’s his pitch for Vitalia at the Network State Conference recently hosted by Balaji. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU-6URq8IOo


Thanks @alexdobrin I support the suggestion, although I wonder if there are any costs associated with this role?

no extra budget requested here
