Hello Community👋! 🚗🚙🚓🚁🚒 Partners are lining up to become part of the ssv.network🤝— that’s what this issue is all about. Happy digesting😍.

Now that we’re close to the end of Batch #1🏁 of the DAO Partner Program, the final wave🌊 of Partner proposals showed up on the forum, with well-known companies on the list👂. Lead Capital, NGC Ventures, Gate Ventures (Gate.io), XT.com, OKEx, all top-notch venture capitals💰, came up with dedicated proposals (👆 see the DAO Updates section below, which received some polish🧽). Wow, what a line-up!🤩

🤜 The proposal of NGC Ventures deserves a special 🌟mention since they made their plans to stake more than 1000 ETH🤑, along with a 99.9% 🆙time commitment for running a node on the ssv.network very clear.

Also, the Partner Group #3 proposal📃 including Chainlayer.io, DSRV, Infstornes, Skillz, and Edi from ShardLabs waits for your pick🤏 and is ready to vote. The same goes for the proposal to add the Amber Group as a partner of the DAO🤗.

📢 Keep in mind🧠 that according to the DAO guidelines, we need minimum participation for the votes. You can find the minimum quorum in the SSV DAO treasury sheet🧮. Every vote✅ counts!

⏰ We still have the reward distribution proposal for the incentivized testnet and the DAO curated node registry proposal open to take your thoughts and comments💬. Please take the opportunity💯, and shape the future of the ssv.network.

We don’t just vote; we also take action🎬! The Uniswap Liquidity proposal has been executed🎉🦄🎉, with 1 Million USD liquidity added to the Uniswap SSV/ETH pool.

Valid Blocks, a well-received non-custodial staking service, announced that SSV support is under active development👨‍🏭. We’ll soon have them as guests in the almost legendary Know Your Operator series🔴. Make sure to ring the bell on YouTube🔔.

But wait🤚, that is not the end of the list of Partners. We also welcome Huobi Pool, one of the biggest mining pools & staking services, as a node operator on the ssv.network. Say Hi🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️!

💱 After Gate.io, Binance, and others, Swapzone, a cryptocurrency exchange aggregator, finally🏁 added SSV to the list of supported assets.

Alon Muroch held an exciting speech🔊 during the blockchain Week Rome. We reached out to the organizer to get a recording for you. Stay tuned.

On the last community digest issue💌 we gave you all a sneak peek at the lovely new ssv.network logo😍, which is now all around the place💃. Check out the updated r/SSVnetwork Reddit presence, our Discord, and the ssv.network YouTube Channel.

Vision

Our new designs are just the beginning✨ of a broader vision🔮.

Eran Efrima wrote about the greater “Decentralized Marketing” vision, eventually giving all the marketing power⚡ to the community👨‍👩‍👧‍👧, decentralizing EVERYTHING. Let’s talk to us if you want to get involved.

👩‍💻👨‍💻With Ledger finally releasing SSV Token support for their Ledger Live Desktop, we can feel how the ecosystem around the ssv.network develops and gets an even bigger footprint🦶. Make sure to 🆙grade your Ledger Live App to v2.35.0.

On Twitter🐤, @gabagooldoteth expressed his surprise that SSV isn’t more often discussed🤦‍♂️. This kicked off an interesting conversation with great replies from @brecales.

You surely noticed🔔 the long-awaited launch of Rocketpool🚀 giving everyone more options for ETH staking. However, with great power💪 comes great responsibility🕷, where SSV could help in the future. u/lifesmage posted his long, yet brilliant Rocket Pool Investment Thesis 2.0 on Reddit, not without mentioning SSV as a building block for the future🔮 of eth staking.

On the Ethereum protocol side of things, Trenton Van Epps wrote about the post-merge roadmap and validator withdrawal. If you care about your funds, this is a must-read📖.

🤔How to get the operator role assigned?

“Only for new operators! If you are done registering you operator on the network please head to 🎫 submit-tickets to request the operator role.”
Dean

🤔Why doesn’t my operator show up?

“If you registered an operator in the last few days and still don’t see their operator in the explorer; we are working on a fix and you should be able to see your operators updated on the SSV explorer within 24 hours.”
Dean
