The Treasury Department is an operational unit meant to serve as a necessary organizational of the banklessDAO. Treasury management and Tokenomics, serve as facilitators and enablers for operational entities such as working groups and teams to its operational sub-departments.


The Treasury Department has worked towards giving a financial overview of BanklessDAO and its Departments. Additionally, the Treasury Department oversees tokenomic operations and monitors and manages all integrations related to BANK, including new platforms and proposing new strategies.

Season 6 was one of the important seasons for the Treasury Department as we strongly focused on building the foundation for the department to function properly and help BanklessDAO achieve its established financial objectives. In addition to providing a financial overview of the main Bankless DAO Treasury with monthly summaries and quarterly financial reports, we have stress tested our governance framework and hosted short sections on different educational topics.

This season we have successfully rapped up the Multichain Working Group as the group has delivered a sustainable methodology to migrate BANK tokens to different L2.

This includes developing and maintaining a living framework for capital assets and their allocations, creating proposals and suggestions for the management of said assets, in support of and alignment with BanklessDAO’s current financial objectives and mission.


Two of the tasks that the Treasury Department must oversee is the preparation of the financial reports as well as paying invoices on behalf of the DAO or paying the gas fees that DAO members incur when making transactions related to BanklessDAO operations. Both Treasury Management Coordinator and Tokenomics Coordinator are responsible for the administration of the Treasury Department. This includes supervising, organizing, and coordinating activities in the Treasury Department like moderating weekly meetings, maintaining the Department’s notion page or representing the Department in the Community Calls while meeting the objectives, requirements and needs set up by the DAO. In addition, they are responsible for preparing the Department’s budget and paying the Treasury Department members with paid roles.


The working group members, such as leads and their support, will be compensated with 240,000 BANK for the whole Season and distributed amongst its members.

A variable amount of BANK will be held aside for a Bounty pool. The bounty pool can be allocated at the discretion of the department coordinators. If there is any dispute to allocations, a sesh poll will be created and voted on by the Department to resolve the dispute. Additionally, Department members can craft a proposal and request funds from the bounty pool if they aren’t being bountied out.
