Validators interested in applying for an Umee Foundation delegation should self-assign the "Validator" role on the Umee Discord. It is recommended to constantly check for updates in the relevant channels. #vali-contributions channel on Discord is created to share contributions and validator resources as they are created for Umee. This helps bring maximum visibility to the overall validator community and the thread function is enabled for discussion and follow-up questions. Be prepared to discuss your contributions with the validator community.
Providing detailed descriptions and links to specific contributions is extremely important.
Validators should submit an application every quarter in order to be eligible for a foundation delegation.
At the beginning of March, June, September, and December respectively, the Validator Delegation Application Form will open up to allow validators to apply for the next quarter’s foundation delegation. The form will be shared in the #validator-announcements channel on the Umee Discord, and applications will be accepted for two weeks.
