SKALE is an open-source Web3 blockchain network. The SKALE Network is governed by the SKALE DAO and is managed in a fully open and decentralized manner. There are over 50 unique companies, business entities, organizations, and DAOs that work to support, run, and govern the SKALE Network. All core smart contract changes require a decentralized multisig approval held by numerous unique entities and contributors. The network is also supported by two entities, the N.O.D.E. Foundation and SKALE Labs. SKALE Labs is the core team involved in proposing technical specs, supporting with open source code contributions, and educating the public on the technical elements of the SKALE Network.
