Cohort 8 Application of Foundation Voting Program is Now Open!

Hello Validators!

Applications for the Celo Foundation Voting Program are now open for Cohort 8! :loudspeaker:

To encourage financial inclusion and the participation of secure, reliable validators, the Celo Foundation will vote for validator groups according to the updated Foundation voting policy.

Performing validator groups that are selected as part of this cohort, will retain Foundation votes until November 1, 2022 (12 months after votes are cast around November 1, 2021), following the updated Foundation voting policy.

Important information

  • The application deadline is October 10, 2021.
  • Cohort 5 validators who are subject to having their votes expire on November 1, 2021 will simply need to opt-in to renew their application here.
  • New validators NEED to apply on the application form here.
  • Both Cohort 5 validators and new applicants will be evaluated equally on their validator performance.

All application details can be found in the docs here.
