As important as the technical build, there is the cultural build.
We have created the DAppNodeDAO with two (2) main objectives:
Work towards a future where decentralized hardware infrastructure is more prevalent, easier to access and simple to run. It does so partly but not limited to the DAppNode software, partnerships with relevant actors, offering better tools, resources and community. I.e.: the ValidatorDAO. project
Act as the channeling agent for the voice of small Node Runners. The DAO of the Indy validators, with a say on the evolution of protocols as a representative of all small Node Runners. It is an entity sitting at the table of the Infrastructure Providers representing those who run their nodes independently. I.e.: efforts to standardize an API to be able to run a standard UI with all validator clients.
But… what are the values of the people behind the DAO?
Can we crouwdsource some bullet points of what the DAO cares about?
- Create tools for anyone to be able to participate directly in decentralized networks without 3rd parties, eliminating technical barriers and educating potential Node Runners.
- Strengthen the resilience of decentralized networks by providing an easy way to deploy nodes in diverse settings outside of the cloud, where they can be targeted and forced to shut down.
- Coordinate Node Runners to present a united voice as the important Infrastructure Provider segment they represent.
