As of this week, Builder Protocol has soft-launched on mainnet for Optimism and Zora Layer 2s! From any page on the Nouns Builder website, select the dropdown located in the top right corner next to the 'Connect' button. You'll see a menu as shown in the screenshot below which allows you to select an alternative network. When you do this, you'll only be shown the DAOs on that network. We can't wait to see the launch of more and more DAOs on these networks as people are able to get even more creative. With much cheaper fees, the accessibility of DAOs on these networks unlocks the attention of a whole new audience. DAOs for everyone!
BotFrens for Everyone
Builder DAO Proposal 47 funded the expansion of the BotFrens DAO bots to provide functionality across a variety of platforms, for any DAO created on the Builder Protocol. With the completion of this work, anyone can set up a @nounsdao or @nounsbuilder bot on http://botfrens.com and share a complete feed of DAO events on Twitter, Bluesky, Farcaster, or Discord. Shout out to the BotFrens team for this awesome work!
