In the dynamic world of Decentralized Finance (DeFi), community-driven governance platforms play a pivotal role in driving the landscape’s progress. Likewise, KyberSwap’s own governance platform KyberDAO has shaped our direction and growth through voting on important Kyber Improvement Proposals (KIPs).
And now, to foster greater engagement and inclusivity within our governance process, we are excited to unveil the KyberDAO Community Delegate Program!
This initiative aims to empower passionate community members with KNC voting power and a platform to actively participate in governance discussions, vote on KIPs, and contribute fresh perspectives and insights to the Kyber ecosystem.
In this initial phase, each of the Community Delegates selected will be delegated 50,000 KNC (Kyber Network Crystal) worth of voting power.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for dedicated individuals who possess a deep understanding of DeFi and DAOs, and who can bring valuable insights and perspectives to the KyberDAO community.
If you are an active KyberSwap user with a good understanding of DeFi and DAOs, a strong social network, or the ability to mobilize other community members, we encourage you to apply and help us take KyberDAO to new heights!
Why be a KyberDAO Community Delegate?
As a KyberDAO Community Delegate, you will enjoy several benefits, including:
- KNC Rewards: You will be delegated 50,000 KNC worth of voting power by the KyberSwap team. Assuming a scenario where $100,000 in fees are collected for KyberDAO each month and 45,000,000 KNC are staked in total, each delegate can earn approximately $111 worth of KNC per month, making your contributions even more rewarding.
Note: We may increase the delegated KNC amount over time and provide bonus rewards based on your individual effort.
- Exclusive Access: You will have the privilege of directly connecting with the KyberSwap team and ambassadors, as well as gain access to the latest updates and product features, participate in online events, and more! For example, you can be among the first to test new features, such as the cutting-edge KyberAI.
- Recognition: The title of Community Delegate carries with it a sense of respect as it plays a crucial role in representing the community’s interests and concerns. As part of an elite group of like-minded individuals who share a deep passion for KyberSwap and KNC, Community Delegates have increased visibility and networking opportunities. In addition, you will earn an exclusive badge/role on the KyberDAO forum and Discord, representing your commitment, expertise, and important status as a Community Delegate.
Responsibilities of a KyberDAO Community Delegate
Community Delegates will be entrusted with specific responsibilities, including:
- Voting on KIPs: Community Delegates have to actively vote on each KIP on the official KyberDAO voting platform (not on third-party websites).
- Active Participation in Discussions: Engage in discussions on the KyberDAO governance forum, offering your opinions on each KIP and providing valuable feedback for improvement.
- Social Media & Community Engagement: Stay connected with KyberDAO’s official Twitter (X) account and Telegram announcement channel to remain up-to-date with the latest developments. You are also encouraged to join community conversations in our KyberSwap Discord and Telegram. After each KIP proposal announcement, you are required to show your support by quote tweeting or retweeting, briefly explaining the reason behind your preferred vote.
- Staying Connected: Join a private Telegram group where you can interact with other Community Delegates and KyberSwap team members. This group will be created after the selection process.
To ensure the effectiveness and integrity of the KyberDAO Community Delegate Program, some important rules will apply:
- Consistency in Voting: Community Delegates must vote on all KIPs; failure to do so for two consecutive KIPs may result in KyberSwap revoking the delegated KNC and a replacement of the delegate.
- Active Forum Participation: Community Delegates must participate in all KIP-related governance forum discussions; failure to do so may result in KyberSwap revoking the delegated KNC and a replacement of the delegate.
- Positive Engagement: Exhibiting behavior that negatively impacts the KyberDAO and KNC community may result in KyberSwap revoking the delegated KNC and a replacement of the delegate.
