Over the last 4 years, the Gnosis Safe saga has unfolded to great heights. It has established itself as a critical piece of infrastructure for Web3, guarding digital assets for DAOs, institutions, projects and individuals alike. On Ethereum mainnet alone, Gnosis Safe users manage over $64B worth of assets, all in self-custody!
This was not a solo effort by Gnosis. It was made possible by the combined powers of a community of contributors. Contributors who believe in the usability and security of smart contract accounts, and who strive to help Web3 users regain control over their own assets. This core group of heroes helped Gnosis Safe get to where it is today! We’re extremely grateful, and we want to reward them for being an early believer in Gnosis Safe.
As Gnosis Safe lays the foundation of becoming an independent public good and community-owned account standard, we’re retroactively rewarding our initial contributors (Safe Guardians 🔰) with soon-to-launch SAFE governance tokens. 50,000,000 SAFE tokens (5% of total supply) will be rewarded over time to these ecosystem contributors. 2.5% of SAFE will be claimable immediately, while the other 2.5% will be vested over 4 years. This drop is in addition to the 5% of total supply already being allocated to users. This is our ‘thank you’ for their hard work and commitment to creating a more secure Web3 for all.
