MonkeDAO‘s delegation strategy for DAOPool looks first at helping DAO’s and community focused projects breakeven on the cost of running their validator. They will also track the performance of validators and may reduce stake, if a validator becomes delinquent.
To that end, «the set of validators eligible to receive SOL from the DAOPool will consist of NFT DAOs and other community-run validators as requested from the MonkeDAO. Ideally, the DAOPool will support an ever-growing community of Solana validators operated by DAOs across the ecosystem, especially newer validators that are still seeking to reach the breakeven point. It is also our hope that the DAOPool will also help to remove a sense of competition on this topic — this should represent a community effort to push the ecosystem towards decentralization.» You can read more about DAOPool here.
