What is a Divi Foundation Partner?

What do they do, why do we need them, who they are, and how to become one?

What is a Divi Partner

A partner in the Divi galaxy is a company, organization, person, or group of people dedicating time/work towards developing solutions around the Divi blockchain, increasing Divi’s awareness, growing its brand, or anything that would make Divi bigger and better.

Why does Divi need Partners

As mentioned in the article What is the Divi Foundation, a blockchain ecosystem grows through the multiple actors building solutions around it and supporting it. It is critically different from a private company, where one individual's, or group of individual's, vision leads the company direction.

A blockchain starts with an initial vision set in the whitepaper, it then remains fixed as a contract between all participants. This leads to a solid and reliable infrastructure reflecting the choices made at creation, and it becomes a shared resource for everyone to build with, on or around.

Any change, evolution or progression from there, is either the result of a consensus funded through treasury, or the result of a partner, opening up a new path.

Partners are a core component of the blockchain industry. For Divi, they are private parties, often stakeholders of the Divi blockchain. They benefit from Divi growing in adoption and help make it happen.

Through private capital raise, volunteering and/or through seeking grants, the partners build viable and financially stable business solutions benefitting the Divi ecosystem and themselves.

We already have a few partners around Divi. But we need more!

BoxWallet (github.com)

BoxWallet is developed by a passionate individual developer, during his spare time. Richard is a long term Divi supporter and user of the Divi CLI wallet. Passionate by development and with some spare time in front of him, he decided to develop BoxWallet, an easier CLI wallet with an interface for very low power hardware like Raspberry Pis and Intel NUCs. BoxWallet just submitted a proposal to the DAO which didn't win the vote but was still funded for the development of a web interface for BoxWallet. 

Today BoxWallet is used by many users and supports multiple coins including Divi. Richard is planning to add more features if there are any requests and support for it through the DAO.

How do I become a Divi Partner?

Are you a volunteer who wants to help the Divi Foundation?

The Divi Foundation can benefit a lot from community help, this is the way projects are built!

Please fill this form and let us know what you can help us with.

Are you a professional who has a win-win proposal for the Divi Foundation?

If you have your own funding and business plan, go ahead, you don’t need us for anything.

If you are partially or not funded, the best approach for you will be to submit a proposal to the DAO.

How to make a DAO proposal?

Currently the DAO website is still being developed, the process is manual and involves people, but you can use the default document you can find in the DAO channel in Discord and submit your proposal there.

Those proposals are then talked about for any changes or added information and they get submitted to community vote.
