Introducing Wildfire - scaling governance & Fire Eyes contribution

gm @Bankless Nation | @0xJustice | @jameswmontgomery.eth | @saulthorin | @links | @ManuelMaccou (GSE)

I would like to introduce you to Wildfire DAO, an extension of Fire Eyes :fire:_​:fire:, which was created by James Waugh, Coopahtroopa, @0x_Lucas , and gladstonecallum, all of whom were involved in DAOs since its inception.

Fire Eyes :fire:_​:fire: pioneered the playbook for DAO collaboration and governance participation, demonstrating a vital role in the launches of ENS, Gitcoin, and SuperRare, as well as play a consistently active role in a number of projects across web3, and are governance stewards for Aave, Balancer, and Rocket Pool. In order to scale these contributions, Wildfire DAO was created.

Wildfire DAO is a meta-governance initiative to connect and align community members from across the ecosystem, creating community-focused working groups to tackle token design, governance and coordination problems in an open and collaborative manner. Wildfire avoids the formation of governance silos that exist within protocols and sees the forest through the trees by acting as a diplomatic meta-governance layer between them.

The growing team of Wildfire contributors help projects in a variety of ways including governance design, tokenomics, strategic partnerships, community building and overall governance. For example, Wildfire DAO members are already active doing the daily work of:

  • Connecting with the core teams/contributors on a recurring basis, further strengthening a project’s core contributors to their community.
  • Writing proposals to participate in governance through the creation, discussion and execution of projects with core teams.
  • Updating the wider Wildfire network including product updates, governance proposals and general strategy.
  • Participating in community calls and project communications to ensure Wildfire is represented in all communication for a given category.
  • Experimenting with DAO governance within Wildfire to improve the processes used within FE and Wildfire to uncover and share useful approaches
  • Working alongside new projects to empower Wildfire squads to design & boost projects.

As representatives of Wildfire - we are seeking to join the BanklessDAO community to provide valuable input and direction, when possible, and aid in the building/fostering of (organization/protocol) mission and long-term roadmap. We wish to contribute in a meaningful manner that provides demonstrable results and gives quality feedback. As a DAO, we adhere to a strict web3 ethos of openness, community driven, and collaborative approach as our guiding values, and seek to provide this value to the BanklessDAO community.


hey everyone :wave: I’m also with Wildfire and extremely humbled to be acquainted with a few of you already. As Jaris posted - we’re looking forward to contributing towards the growth of bDAO. We’ve been working on reaching out to our networks to help connect the dots and buidl relations between them. We believe that the future success of bDAO is imperative for the larger DAO ecosystem.

We have some exciting plans we look forward to discussing with the community for further guidance and feedback :saluting_face:


Not much to add here, just wish to introduce myself as the other member of this Wildfire squad that will be working with Bankless. I haven’t been that active on here recently but have been a long term member of the DAO and quite a few of you will remember me from earlier days :slight_smile: Some of you I have met in Singapore or at ETH Denver. LFG, let’s make Bankless awesome! :rocket:
