Bringing Home the Bacon

As time goes on it will become more and more imperative for Builder DAO to establish sustainable revenue streams to maintain operations and provide continuous funding opportunities for builders. The discussion around potential revenue streams is heating up, as we have been having conversations about various fee structures and other revenue streams for upcoming versions of the Builder Protocol. A brief Snapshot vote was held here and you can catch up on the conversation and share your thoughts in the Discord thread here.

Malicious Proposals Warning

There has been an anonymous wallet submitting proposals to DAOs with low activity that are disguised as protocol upgrades, but actually sends the balance of the treasury to the anon wallet. Please stay vigilant and be sure to thoroughly read proposals before submitting your vote. The dev team is also working on UX improvements to make it clearer what the transactions attached to proposals will do moving forward.
