What is a Threshold delegate?

A Threshold delegate is a DAO member who aligns strongly with the mission of the Threshold Network to leverage cryptographic tools that ensure full control of users’ digital assets.

Delegates provide ETH addresses that other Threshold token holders and Threshold stakers can delegate their vote weight to. This never involves the transferring or custody of assets but rather just the vote weight those assets represent in the Threshold DAO. Furthermore, vote weight can be redelegated at any time.

Delegates are responsible for voting on Threshold governance proposals with this vote weight that others have assigned to them.

Why do delegates exist?

Delegates exist because not everyone is able to fully commit to following Threshold governance and spending enough time considering every single DAO proposal. Allowing DAO members to delegate means they can still have an indirect say in the DAO, without having to be involved with day-to-day governance. Instead, they select active DAO members who have demonstrated solid commitment to Threshold to make decisions with their token weight and stake weight for them.

What do delegates do?

Delegates are volunteers who actively participate in Threshold governance and wish to grow their influence over key decisions in both the Threshold Token Holder DAO and the Threshold Staker DAO.

Delegates are expected to actively participate in all Threshold governance proposals while ensuring to make well researched and informed decisions.

Essentially, becoming a delegate means that other people are trusting your ability to make great on-chain decisions for the entire network.

Time commitment?

Voting on proposals is easy. Taking time to participate in governance discussion and ensure a proper understanding of what each proposal means… not as much.

Becoming a delegate does not require a hard time commitment to the DAO. For reference, so far there have been around 21 Threshold Improvement Proposals. The amount of time required is directly correlated to the amount of proposals that go through our on-chain governance system.

Compensation?

Delegates are volunteers, and there’s no established compensation for their contribution to governance.

If you are interested in earning T to help build the Threshold network check out our DAO guilds under the #daocontribute channel in our Discord server.

Who should be a delegate?

Anyone who understands the commitment to the DAO a delegate is making, is excited about Threshold governance and wants to directly grow their influence on the future of the network. This can be existing Threshold DAO contributors or members of other web3 communities.

Why I want to be a Threshold delegate: I have a deep philosophical commitment to the principles and objectives of the Threshold DAO. I work as a consultant in the field of learning design and technology and have a background in computer science. I am a frequent contributor to the marketing guild and a current member of the marketing guild committee.

While I have a relatively solid high-level understanding of threshold cryptography and its potential within web three applications, my strong suit is not technical, and I would defer to others whom I respect on matters of technology. However, I have an extensive background in traditional governance: I am a Registered Parliamentarian, and am a board member of the Robert’s Rules Association—the body that publishes the standard rules for deliberative assemblies. One of my principal contributions as a delegate will be the ability to merge an understanding of traditional governance with the commitment to developing best practices for decentralization.

Why I want to be a Threshold delegate: I have a strong commitment to the Threshold DAO and community. I started bridging the NuCypher and Keep Network communities in April of 2021 and have been a driving force of all community led initiatives. I currently lead the Threshold Marketing Guild and am an inaugural member of the Threshold Marketing Guild Committee.

While I am still learning more every day and might not be capable of forming the right conclusion independently, I have an acute ability to hear others and ask the right questions to make informed and educated decisions for the network. I am not afraid to send my favorite community members a line asking them to explain something to me like I’m 5. The great part is that our community is filled with people that will take the time out of their day to help others learn and grow.

Why I want to be a Threshold delegate:
I’ve been around and really active since before Defi Summer '20, first in Keep Community and now in Threshold Community. I love being part of the evolution of cryptographic tools applied to decentralization and individual privacy protection. And I consider that appropriate decision-making is as important as continuous collaboration in other areas.

Definitely thrilled to cooperate in Threshold DAO becoming the leading example of healthy and flourishing decentralized organizations.
