BuilderDAO has had a great turnaround in the past two months. The hard work around community building by myself and Patti, plus Neokry and Zaak's efforts on the engineering side, have led to more active auctions, a significant number of new members, and more positive outlook on the future of the DAO.
Highlights from the past three months include:
Launched Builder Guild and began the governance process by utilizing Nerman in discord. This was officially implemented as part of [prop 59]. The Builder Guild meetings have been active and I look forward to more participation from Guild members. We also had a couple Guild members join BuilderDAO by purchasing their own token. Additional processes need to be implemented to ensure more active governance and we will need to start onboarding additional members of the guild this month.
Marketing Communications [Prop 57]:
Newsletter/Blog had been restarted https://paragraph.xyz/@builder and a Notion site with project updates https://0xsatori.notion.site/Builder-DAO-Proposal-Dashboard-a66f8a89dce64ed680a9c16eb2dec364?pvs=4 has been created by Satori. Both will provide a better flow of information to members.
Animated gifs of Builder tokens are ongoing with new tokens during this two week period being created to help bring attention to the art. These animations will also be incorporated as stickers in discord and gifs that can be shared on twitter. In addition, Graphicography will be doing 28 others after these are finished and will do some creation live in discord.
Started utilizing the new Builder channel on Farcaster more and see this as a major opportunity to increase communication among DAO members. Greatly appreciate new BuilderDAO member DWR implementing BuilderDAO as one of the first channels. I noticed an increase in voting since that channel went live!
Started a weekly onboarding call on Thursdays at 4:30 in the discord. This has already provided a couple great conversations with new members and I look forward to this opportunity to chat with new members of BuilderDAO, new DAO founders and those with questions about launching a DAO on Nouns Builder.
Worked with Patti, Shahab and Zaak on Operations and will be continuing on the Ops team moving forward. (prop 58)
Fielded numerous inquiries about BuilderDAO and Nouns Builder via dm's.
Still in Progress:
Add Prop Lot as an idea generation temp check and location outside discord for discussions as another decentralized touchpoint.
Design a DAO Incubator for nounish DAOs with the input of Builder Nouncil Reps.
Work on utilizing BuilderBox content better via edited clips for social media and podcast content. And use this platform and others to highlight Nounish DAOs.
Looking ahead, in addition to maintenance of the discord and Twitter Spaces, I'll be focusing on the following:
Outreach to individual DAOs for incorporation into Builder Guild and overall increased communication.
Builder Guild development so that it becomes a self-sustaining org with less direction from me and admin team.
Increasing attendance at newly launched On-boarding sessions.
Exploring ways to better communicate the current infinite prop house round to reach the right participants and get activity going.
Search for additional opportunities for BuilderDAO exposure in media and events to continue the momentum from the FarCon and OPJ props.
Development of a DAO bootcamp once L2 DAOs are available.
Experiment with adding streaming on Unlonely to reach a Farcaster audience as well.
Onboard more members of BuilderDAO to Farcaster to increase the effectiveness of that communication channel.
