The Builder Mobile App is now available for download in the App Store! It provides all the necessary tools to stay up to date with the onchain activities of DAOs built on the Builder protocol. Not only can you track auctions and proposals in the app, but you can even add custom widgets to your home screens. Click here to download it on the App Store. Shout out to iamng for the awesome work! If you have any feedback on the app, please share it in the project's thread on Discord. Please note it only supports DAOs on Ethereum mainnet right now, but maybe that will change in the future👀
Nouns Builder v2.1.0
As some of you may have noticed, there have been various updates to the Nouns Builder site recently including a list of DAO members on each DAO's 'About' page, as well as a tab above the auctions where you can view a chart of the auction history. The site now also has an inline bridge so you no longer need to navigate away from the Nouns Builder site to bridge funds to your favorite Layer 2s. Simply click the 'Bridge' button in the navigation bar, and a convenient bridging interface will pop up no matter where you are on the Nouns Builder site! Check out the full update from the devs on Twitter or GitHub.
Education is more important than ever now that these powerful tools are being released to the public. With this in mind, Prof Werder is hosting a series of Builder Workshops to teach everyone how to build a DAO on ETH or any of the new Layer 2s! The final session takes place on August 30th at 5:00pm EST in the Builder Discord. And in case you missed it, head over to Zora to mint the commemorative NFT Prof Werder released celebrating the launch of Nouns Builder on Base network.
