As legacy institutions crumble, new borderless, digital jurisdictions are rising like phoenixes (and eagles) to replace them. This is what we’re building at Aragon. And just as legacy jurisdictions need ambassadors, so do digital ones. The difference is, we are not looking for people from a certain demographic, with a particular background or qualifications; rather, we are looking for anyone who embodies the values of our Manifesto and has a passion to empower individuals through Web3 technology.
Our goal is to build a network of Aragon Ambassadors across every town, city, and country in the world. The Program is recently out of its soft-launch Early Bird phase, having onboarded its first 29 Ambassadors during September 2021. The three rollout phases are as follows:
Early Bird Phase: 100 Ambassadors
Eaglet Phase: 250+ Ambassadors in 2021
Eagle Phase: 500+ Ambassadors in 2022
