Last week can be summarized as a significant step forward for SSV. First, several CEXes, such as Binance completed the transition from CDT to SSV. Then, others, such as Gate.io, AOFEX, and MEXC followed quickly, with SSV finally taking its spot on Coinmarketcap.com.

With SSV nearly replacing CDT, the DAO can finally vote using its native token. We saw new proposals, such as adding SSV liquidity to Uniswap discussed on the forum, and the first batch of DAO Partner Program and Grant votes are ready for your pick.

Speaking of Uniswap, the first SSV/ETH liquidity pool was initialized and is waiting for more liquidity.

Now that SSV is circulating, we need better hardware wallet support. BenAffleck kicked off a discussion on GitHub to add SSV token support for Ledger Live. Go 🆙-vote.

Alon Muroch from Blox brought together a colorful group of people for the first SSV conference in Lisbon, talking about the future of eth and SSV — a must-watch.

On the Ethereum side of things, Ben Edgington published What’s New in Eth2–22 October 2021. Ben also mentioned the efforts around SSV. He also expressed his worries about the current state of node upgrade readiness for Altair. Please update.

Speaking of SSV, the Obol Network finally de-clocked giving us early insights into their current work. Great to see more players coming into the SSV space. This is a major validation of the importance of SSV in decentralizing staking.

👨‍👧‍👦 Community Asks

We saw a lot of questions on the tokenomics of SSV around circulating supply and market cap. The team around SSV will soon provide additional information and roadmap insights. Still, we can already find great answers in this CDT -> SSV article published by AdamEfr from the Blox Staking Team.
