The purpose of the DAOLationships (BizDev) Department is to facilitate and coordinate relationships between external organizations and BanklessDAO. When other guilds in bDAO need support from external organizations, they come to DAOLationships Guild to help understand and navigate the personal connections we have. When external orgs want to establish a connection with bDAO, the BizDev Department helps to coordinate those efforts for maximum mutual benefit.

Looking to Season 6

During Season 5 we established several interesting partnerships. DAOlationships spearheaded a partnership with IDriss to have $BANK added to their chrome extension, allowing users to tip in $BANK on both ETH mainnet and Polygon, we formed the first “DAOLationship” with Consensys, and we’re working on having $BANK added to Across Protocol, so $BANK holders can quickly bridge $BANK between ETH Mainnet and Polygon with low fees, and earn $ACX in the process. All of these partnerships were made with no financial incentive; in Season 6, the DAOLationships Department will focus heavily on forming strategic partnerships to advance the BanklessDAO ecosystem.

Demos had really gained popularity in Season 5 and we already have Demos booked well into Season 6. We would like to professionally record/edit Demos, so we’re recruiting members from AV Guild to assist in this effort and upload high quality Demos with established projects to the BanklessDAO YouTube channel, and eventually land sponsorships to generate additional revenue for the DAOlationships and BanklessDAO treasuries.

During Season 5 we held Demos with the following projects: Metropolis (prev Orca Protocol), Juicebox, DeepDAO, DAOLens, Charmverse, rep3, Wistaverse, WalletChat, and we have Push Protocol (prev EPNS), Superfluid, and Syndicate presenting Demos in Season 6.


Our mission is to help BanklessDAO onboard 1 billion people to crypto. We will help by releasing content on useful DAO tools through live demo events and uploading to YouTube afterwards to provide useful information for web3 builders. We will also focus on establishing strategic partnerships with external organizations that are aligned with BanklessDAO, to expand our ecosystem to communities that share our values on decentralization and self-sovereignty.
