In the past 6 months, we've hit a DAO inflection point.
Together, the internet crowdsourced 40+ DAO tools, 80+ DAOs, and 30+ high-quality DAO writeups.
Today, I get a few DMs a week from founders launching new DAO tools. The ecosystem feels exponential and it’s hard to know where to start. Even our crowdsourced list of DAO tools is overwhelming.
The DAO Masters site will go beyond the spreadsheet and help people set up DAOs.
This project was inspired by Makerpad. Makerpad helped demystify no-code tools and accelerated the no-code movement. We aim to do something similar for DAOs. You can imagine a site that looks like a slimmed-down version of Makerpad’s.
The DAO Masters site will include:
Why is this project important?
DAOs are a new way to collectively organize, create value, and capture value. Many of us are interested in DAOs because they’re a more flexible way to work. They encourage collaboration and offer project contributors upside.
DAOs appear to be at a major inflection point. Deep DAO shows that as of Sep 1, 2021, DAOs had $9.6B in AUM.
If you’re interested in DAOs, now is an exciting time to get involved. It’s still super early and we’re learning together fast.
Who’s involved in this project and how can I get involved?
I’ll take point on finding the right collaborators to get v1 launched. Steven Echtman, from DAOists, is helping PM it.
If you want to get involved with DAO Masters, contribute to this campaign or apply to contribute to the project here. We’re looking to build and launch in a month. For this project, we’ll hire the following contributors:
Once the crowdfund closes, everyone who holds $DAOMSTR tokens will be invited to join a token-gated Discord. To kick things off, we’ll record videos, create tutorials, and document our process as we set it up the Discord. We’ll attempt to answer questions as we build.
What happens after we launch the site?
After we launch the site, we’ll hand over DAO Masters to the community. It will be up to you to decide what happens next. If you want to get involved, please reach out! Here are things we’ve considered:
Thanks, dream team 🦄
