Who are founding members of The Libra Association?

Libra partners are diverse group of businesses, non-for-profit organizations and academic institutions. Partners, also called members, join The Libra Association and help in Libra oversight by running a validator node on the network and serving in governance.

The initial group of organizations that will work together to finalize the Libra Association’s charter are called the association’s Founding Members.

Partners (Members) are responsible for the following three objectives:

  1. Strategy: The Libra Association members are responsible for the overall strategy (both short and long-term) of the Libra ecosystem and the Libra Reserve. They will also be directly involved in social-impact grant making.
  2. Implementation: Members are responsible for running the validator nodes that operate the Libra Blockchain. Validator nodes help secure network and validate blockchain transactions.
  3. Governance: Members of the association are also responsible for key decisions regarding the direction and development of the Libra Blockchain, the management of the Libra Reserve, and the approach to social impact grant-making.
