Applications Now Open to Become Verified
Swell Network DAO has opened an inaugural application round to onboard a selected and limited number of node operators to become Verified Node Operators on the liquid ETH staking network.
The DAO is seeking experienced, and proven operators who are interested in shaping the protocol’s next-generation ETH liquid staking by running nodes and participating in governance.
Applications are now open and will be closing soon.
Being a Verified Node Operator
Swell Network is fully permissionless for node operators. The DAO enables selected operators to become verified, subject to community feedback and governance.
Verified operators play an important and active role in the development and governance of the protocol and will be required to complete verification, including KYC.
In line with Swell’s core principles of being permissionless and accessible, any third party entity is able to run nodes on Swell Network. These unverified operators need only meet the collateral requirements per validator, which at the time of writing, is 16 ETH per validator.
Swell Network is dedicated to fostering increased decentralization and trustlessness for the protocol and is working actively to reduce hurdles over time.
- Experience, performance and track record
- Infrastructure set-up and diversity
- Risk management and security
- Potential to positively contribute to the DAO
To be eligible for verified status, node operators must commit to actively participating in the Swell Network Görli Testnet to ensure a sufficient level of understanding of the protocol.
To apply, simply hit the apply button below and complete the application form. Once completed, a member from the Swell Core Team will be in touch.
