Public Work Session #10
Notes and recordings from the latest public work session #10 are available here on Github. The key focal points of the latest session were client development and upgrades planned for Builder Protocol V2. Under client development, discussion items included the integration of trigger emails, presenting DAO Auction charts, and the potential implementation of a stablecoin bridge. Additionally, they discussed the Nouns TokenBuyer contract, an integral part of the Protocol V2 rollout. Protocol V2 itself is poised to introduce streamlined token claiming, alternate implementation routes, a unique custom metadata renderer, and dynamic auctions, marking a significant leap in the DAO's scalability and versatility.
Builder Infinite Prop House Dev Round
Unfortunately, a strong proposal by Jord from DAO Masons became stale after not reaching the vote threshold within the 7 days of being posted. As proposals are required to reach the threshold within this time period, it is crucial that we as a DAO try our best to regularly pay attention to proposals as they come in. I will continue providing updates as additional proposals are submitted to the Prop House round, with the objective of encouraging broader participation and an increased volume of votes.
For those who haven't heard yet, the round has been funded with 0.50 ETH and 1 Builder token to be rewarded to the first three proposals to meet the round requirements and reach the vote threshold of 54. If you are a developer looking for a way to get involved with Builder DAO this is a fantastic opportunity to show your skills! Check out the round on Prop House here for more info.
