Bridging the Gap

The Builder Protocol's expansion to Layer 2 is official - the Builder Protocol is live on mainnet for Optimism, Base, and Zora! With the implementation of Layer 2s for the Builder Protocol it is more important than ever that everyone have easy access to tools like bridges. Builder's resident engineers have built this awesome bridging page that displays your wallet balance on each network with a simple link to bridge funds to each network via the official bridge.

Builder Infinite Prop House Dev Round

We're still seeking more proposals for this round! Any and all contributions are welcome, if you need ideas please ask in Discord and I'm sure you can receive some suggestions from our members and resident engineers. If you want to hop on a call with them, check out the weekly public work sessions mentioned below.

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.

Newsletter Artwork

I'd like to start mixing up the artwork used in this newsletter every week and would love to feature submissions from members of the DAO. The art featured in this week's newsletter was created by myself using the NounsAI playground. If anyone wants to send me artwork they've drawn or generated with AI, please DM me on X (are we calling it that yet?) or Discord, and I will include your art and a shoutout in a future newsletter!

Built on Builder

This week's featured DAO built on the Builder protocol is ENERGY. Recently launched on the 2023 Nouniversary (8/8), it is one of the first DAOs launched on Zora Network using the Nouns Builder Protocol. It was founded by a group of 11 creators and innovators with the goal of funding creative arts and engineering projects on the Zora Network. The team is currently proposing to remove the Founder's allocation, making this an entirely community-owned and run initiative.
