Greetings to all innovators and visionaries in the decentralized world!


At the heart of breakthrough technology lies not just the brilliance of its creators but also the collective wisdom of its users. In line with this belief, we are thrilled to announce the prospect of an Early Access Partnership Program.

As we hone the Valida compiler and its ecosystem, our mission goes beyond mere development; we're creating a collaborative forge where ideas can meld and transform. Before we unveil Valida's compiler, toolchain, and suite of utilities to the open-source community, we're inviting a cadre of pioneering spirits to join us in a journey of discovery and refinement.

Why might you, as a developer, researcher, or enthusiast, be interested? This is a unique opportunity to not only get a first look at our cutting-edge tools but to also play a pivotal role in their final polish. Your input could steer the course of Valida, ensuring that the tools we craft fit the puzzle of your needs perfectly.

We're not just looking for users; we're seeking architects of the future—partners who are eager to test the limits of our tools and provide the candid, constructive feedback that is the lifeblood of innovation.

You are a perfect candidate for our early access program if you are interested in:

- Testing and providing feedback on Valida and the Valida compiler.
- Exploring the toolchain and associated utilities.
- Contributing to security improvements.
- Integrating Valida into existing projects.
- Developing new projects from scratch.
- Other academic research purposes.

We are especially keen to hear from you if you would like to give feedback on:

- Performance optimization.
- Language support and LLVM compatibility.
- Ease of use and documentation.
- Security features.
- Smart contract development and deployment.
- Interoperability with other systems.
