Kleomedes is a Cosmos Ecosystem validator with nodes operating on 30+ networks with over $6 million of AUM. We have one of the largest delegator pools with over 35,000 unique wallets. In addition to running validator nodes, we also provide API/RPC nodes and relayers to support the networks we validate. All our bare metal machines are running out of our private data center in Naples, Italy. We manage our nodes using Tendermint Key Management Services (TMKMS) and have never double signed on any network we validate.
Most importantly, our operations are fully governed as a DAO. This means that our community is able to weigh in on which networks we expand to, what services we provide, and how we vote on various on-chain proposals. Most importantly all revenue management is handled through fully transparent and onchain governance decisions. Our vision is to continue establishing the structure and policies necessary for the DAO to operate effectively and have Kleomedes contributors compensated for being active on every single chain that we validate. This model allows us to scale operations sustainably over time and add true value to the networks that we validate without any behind-the-scenes deals or activities. No longer do you have to wonder how your delegation commissions are being spent, nor worry that foundation delegations are being extracted from the ecosystem.
