The new “Meet the Delegates'' series by the governance ambassadors helps the dYdX community to get to know their delegates! We have Vitalii for this episode, who is an Endorsed Delegate for the dYdX community!
In addition to this blog, Vitalii has kindly prepared a presentation with his introduction and details.
Delegation provides an opportunity for more community members to get involved with governance, and when you delegate the voting power of your tokens, you retain 100% ownership of the token itself. There are no changes to the way you use or hold the token. You can choose anyone who you believe will participate in dYdX governance and can represent what you want this ecosystem to become.
Currently, $DYDX and stk$DYDX holders have control over market listings, capital allocations to market makers, allocation of the community treasury, and much more (see the full list of governance parameters here). Community-controlled governance parameters will increase in the future, and competent delegates are essential to push the dYdX protocol forward.
If you hold DYDX and/or stkDYDX but have no time to review proposals, or you don't have enough information about potential delegates, consider delegating the proposing power and/or voting power of your tokens to an Endorsed Delegate to support decentralization and better decision-making on the dYdX protocol. You can review the Endorsed Delegate's profiles and pitches here and delegate voting power and prosing power here.
In the third episode of this series, Vitalii presents a background of himself and how he can contribute to the dYdX community.
Prior to starting his crypto journey, Vitalii managed sales and marketing for various multinational corporations like Unilever, Mars, and Johnson & Johnson for the CIS community. He had been full-time in crypto since 2019, proclaims he is already a 'grandfather' by crypto standards, and is a self-proclaimed expert in Web3, DeFi and NFTs!
Vitalii started his journey on dYdX at the beginning of 2022, sees great potential in the protocol and the ecosystem, and wants to help dYdX gain global brand awareness and market share. Being a native Russian speaker, Vitalii aims to onboard Russian-speaking communities of up to 100,000 members onto dYdX through various initiatives like translations of content to Russian and active engagements in these communities.
Vitalii's main skills as an Endorsed Delegate are:
Daily discord community engagement
Participate in AMAs and Hedgies community events
Various contributions to product feedback, community engagement campaigns and technical development suggestions
'At the beginning of 2022, I found out about the dYdX project and from that moment I have been in love with it. I see great potential in the project, a great future and I want to help the project gain global market leadership. For many years of work in large corporations, I have learned to interact with different people and know how to work in a team. I can find a common language and negotiate with everyone.'
