The SKALE DAO

SKALE is an open-source Web3 blockchain network. The SKALE Network is governed by the SKALE DAO and is managed in a fully open and decentralized manner. There are over 50 unique companies, business entities, organizations, and DAOs that work to support, run, and govern the SKALE Network. All core smart contract changes require a decentralized multisig approval held by numerous unique entities and contributors. Onchain voting will commence in H2 2022. In addition there are thousands of active community members supporting the project in many ways including open source code contributions,  Show more

Charting the Course

The N.O.D.E Foundation

The Network of Decentralized Economics (N.O.D.E.) Foundation is a non-profit entity based in Liechtenstein created to carry out the mission of supporting the SKALE Network open source project. The foundation is supported by the N.O.D.E. Anstalt, a subsidiary business arm of the Foundation, and by SKALE Labs, Inc., headquartered in San Francisco, CA. SKALE Labs provides support to the Network by contributing to the open-source code, community growth, and other vital efforts to facilitate the development and adoption of the SKALE Network.

The NODE Foundation supports the SKALE Network by electing a diverse set of network representatives comprised of Dapp developers who run SKALE Chains, validators who run SKALE Nodes, independents such as investors that helped kickstart the network economics, and developers who actively build, maintain, and evolve the code base.

These representatives will serve the community through the facilitation of on-chain voting, grants, and budgetary decisions. The representatives will be selected by the Foundation initially, with future elections being held via a variant of on-chain voting by token holders.
