Bankless DAOstewards is a meta-governance group from BanklessDAO. We aim to encourage good governance in the DAO space by expressing Bankless values and foster a collaborative environment for the space to grow.


Project Description

DAOStewards act as professional delegates who help in the day-to-day administration and coordination of DAOs we partner with. We are currently delegates at SAFEDAO and EulerDAO. We are also scoping our engagement to VitaDAO as a part of their recognised delegates program.

Each delegation consists of 2 leads supported by Governance analysts.

Protocol Leads Tokens delegated Budget
Arbitrum jengajojo, LiviuC 200k+ 2000 BANK/lead/week
Euler @Baer.eth @jengajojo 2k+ 2000 BANK/lead/week
Optimism jengajojo, thinkdecade 1k+ 2000 BANK/lead/week
VitaDAO @jengajojo @cryptodad 0 2000 BANK/lead/week
Safe @links @thinkDecade 48k+ 2000 BANK/lead/week

The long-term sustainability model for the group is to mine governance rewards by

  1. Making a compelling case for delegators to delegate to us
  2. Actively involving ourselves in governance

Bankless DAOstewards are happy to help any group funded by BanklessDAO with partnerships, sponsorships and grants.

An example of this is the recent 27500 OP tokens which BanklessDAO projects received due to our active engagement with Optimism’s RPGF2. 10% of this income goes straight to bDAO Treasury
