As governed and announced in VDP-65 Introducing Delegated Voting, VitaDAO plans to introduce delegates and delegation as a governance functionality.
This enables you to, either:
1. Run as a Delegate: Consider becoming a delegate. Express your viewpoints and convince the community to delegate their VITA tokens to you. This increases your say in governance decisions.
2. Delegate Your Tokens: Alternatively, delegate your VITA tokens to those who can best represent your interests, authorizing them to make governance decisions for you.
Delegates are vital members of the VitaDAO community, responsible for key decisions that shape our mission to advance longevity research.
By becoming a delegate, you have a say in every governance proposal coming up, on:
- Voting on which research to fund
- Determining the categories and sizes of funding for specific kinds of longevity research and community engagement within longevity science.
- Identifying critical areas of research and turning our attention to them
- Add valuable perspectives to the current active voters
and many more.
If you have a passion for longevity research, and the challenges above intrigue you, becoming a delegate might be the right fit! Expect to commit 4-6 hours a month.
- Meta-Governance: Crafting VitaDAO’s organizational policies and procedures
- Research Funding: Galvanizing support for essential scientific projects related to longevity
- Progressive Decentralization: Refining VitaDAO’s structure to make it more accessible and effective
- Special Projects: Exploring new avenues for innovation within longevity research
To apply, please provide:
- ETH Address (to be delegated to)
- Discord Handle (optional)
- Intent: Statement of Intention / Your Values & Reasons for Joining
- Qualifications: Your Longevity and/or Crypto Qualifications / Skills / Links about your work
Once approved, you’ll be added to our Delegates cards, allowing others to delegate their support to you. Discover more about the onboarding process and join our Discord to begin your journey!
Go to Snapshot
Enter the address you want to delegate to.
To limit the delegation to a specific space, tap the on toggle button and enter the space key (example:
balancer.eth) you want your delegation to take effect on. If no space is selected, the effect will take place for all spaces.
Click Confirm to save your delegation.
Delegates are not awarded extra tokens for being delegates as of now, which might change in the future or receive retroactive rewards for their contributions. If you feel they should be, feel free to propose a proposal on how, or discuss in this separate thread.
