DeFi is a wild nature adventure. It has the potential of providing everyone with financial freedom, but freedom comes with responsibilities. New users to crypto will feel challenged as they take their first steps towards owning their finances in DeFi, where they move away from the comfort of the centralized exchanges that brought them here and enter the world of self custody.
What if there were people providing advice and support on how to manage their wallets and tokens? What if there were guidelines on how to better understand the risks of investing and finance, information that can provide a solid and reliable foundation to understanding DeFi so that real profits can be generated in the long term? A community that shares knowledge and supports each other would be a great place to be a part of.

To further empower future users of DeFi, we are excited to roll out the Horizon Rangers program.

What is a Horizon Ranger?

Horizon Rangers is an ambassador program that brings together people in the community who are passionate and interested in providing educational content about DeFi and Horizon Protocol to the larger crypto community. Horizon Rangers will be in charge of supporting and sharing content in crypto channels, as well as creating guidelines and content that will help onboard new users and spread awareness in the crypto and Horizon Protocol ecosystem. Horizon Rangers are the keepers of the forests, regional leaders committed to supporting the growth of DeFi and Horizon Protocol in their local communities to help accelerate the community and project growth.

We are very grateful to see many community members already stepping up and volunteering to help the community’s growth. The Horizon Ranger program will make these personal initiatives more formal and structured so we can provide better support and incentives.
