Making HAUS a Fortress 🏰
DAOhaus Newsletter, Nov 19th, PrimeDAO, Makoto from ENS ✨, Metaverse Mingle in an Off-chain ⛓ City 🌆, Rabbithole w/ Bflynn 🎩🐇, POAP WarGames, WarCamp Congeal 🙏, Boosts 🚀 and much more 🎆!
It’s not “Our DAO vs. your DAO” or “us vs. them.” It is “all of us vs. Moloch”
DAOhaus is building for a future of multifaceted and composable organizations, where purpose and community are at the center, and coordination is decentralized to the fringes.
The pursuit of building a platform for composable, new and or existing purpose driven communities is admirable, but it requires a nuanced approach to design and development.
Our nuanced approach relies heavily on experimentation and iteration so we’re going to take you through some of what it takes to build a robust DAO platform and community.
As usual, here’s your reminder to sign up to get this in your inbox if you want the good stuff a day early. - Bau

🖨 Hot off the Press
Check out this thread that highlights the kick ass features of Yeeter, a simple interface connected to a Gnosis Safe that allows your community to “Yeet” funds together and deploy them collectively toward an immediate cause. 👇
MFTDAO, Mcarbis, and PadawanDAO are just a few of the DAOs that have been launched since we created Yeeter.
🙌 Rarible Boost is Live
DAOhaus has been working tirelessly on a boost to integrate the Rarible protocol into the Minion interface so DAOs can begin to mint and curate their own NFT Galleries within the DAOhaus app!
We are incredibly excited to see how users adopt this new Boost to buy and sell NFTs, engaging in shared ownership over NFTs in and across communities.
🚀 Arbitrum Launch
Great news, DAOhaus is now up and running on Arbitrum! Now, you can summon your DAO and get access to the growing DeFi ecosystem on Arbitrum. With summoning DAOs, joining DAOs and submitting proposals costing less than 10 dollars, we are looking forward to all you can DAO on Aribtrum.
As a cherry on top, we’re now listed on the Arbitrum portal with the likes of Curve, Dai and more.
🚀 DAO Books Boost Lives
In September, DAOhaus sponsored the Decentralized Governance Hackathon putting up a challenge for the Gitcoin community to either build DAOhaus tools or work on open Github issues.
Teams building DAOhaus tools (aka Boosts) were scored based on effectiveness, completeness, quality and modularity, and the winning submission would win a Grand Prize of $1000
Among the submissions, we were most excited by DAO Books - a team from Raid Guild Cohort Season 2 building a book-keeping and accounting Boost for DAOs. Led by Midgerate and Xivanc the Boost breaks down DAO vaults into ledgers and aggregates inflows and outflows.
To help DAOs better manage their treasuries, we continued funding the DAO Books team to develop their MVP into a full-fledged Boost on the DAOhaus marketplace. The DAO Books Boost is now live on the Boost Marketplace, so you can start powering up your DAO’s treasury management 💰

🎉 HAUS Don’t Stop the Party
📸 HausParty Flash DAOs
So let’s take you through what happened here.
At HAUS party with Travis Wyche from MolochDAO, we wanted to do an experiment - summon a xDAI DAO with claimants of the event’s POAP, give each participant a few shares each and let the universe do its thing.
Next, a proposal was made to add 5000 RAID and 60 HAUS to the DAO. After these proposals passed (~30 mins), members were presented with two options:
PATH 1: Members of the DAO could redeem tokens from a link like this, and those who claimed early would leave with less than their fair share.
PATH 2: Members could abstain from claiming rewards and vote on the proposal made to take control of the DAO down.
The claim window was open for three hours, after which a proposal was made to give a single DAO member control of the DAO (and the remaining funds in it).
Following the deployment of the DAO there was a great deal of emergent behavior. Members tried to deceive one another or collude in an attempt to retrieve funds from the DAO bank.
After +50 proposals and many unforeseen attempts at absconding funds from the treasury, members who accumulated the largest amount of shares in the DAO coordinated to withdraw the funds.
In reflection, what was particularly fascinating following this experiment was the degree to which collusion worked to align members in the DAO.
Don’t miss out on this week’s HausParty, and come partake in the WarGames!
✨ Makoto from ENS DAO
Last week in HausParty, we were joined by Makoto from ENS DAO to share about the recent launch of $ENS, a governance token that was retroactively distributed to any address that has ever owned a .ETH name.
Makoto took us through the bootstrapping of ENS and how it has arrived where it is today. ENS started with a small grant and gained momentum in building out a robust system for servicing domains across the Ethereum Blockchain.
Check out the HausParty with Makoto to hear about the future of ENS and where the DAO is headed.
😤 PrimeDAO with Arseny & Luuk
Our guests this week took us through an exhilarating journey that closely resembles the DAOhaus story for how we arrived here and the future we are building for.
PrimeDAO, originally Prime Arbitrage DAO, is composed of early contributors from the DAOStack and Aragon ecosystem. Following ETHDenver 2020, early members coalesced to make sense of the so called “Tipsy DeFi” taking place last summer and leverage DAOs to create a more equitable Financial system.
The crew of members aims to build a suite of composable tools and instruments, which have been battle tested with the likes of cadCAD and BlockScience
PrimeDAO took us through some exiting features they will be releasing in the months ahead
If you are interested in learning more about what these features do, check out the show notes!
🐇 🎩 RabbitHole Recap
FoundationsDAO witnessed an explosion of new members joining after the RabbitHole quest went live late last month👇.
The campaign was a massive success and brought in over 2,000 participants from across the globe, making Foundations DAO one of the largest DAOhaus DAOs.
Feeling FOMO? You can give the Rabbithole campaign a go and earn some XP 🐇!
🎀 Wrapping Up
