This year we launched the Aragon App, an easy-to-use homebase for anyone to launch and participate in a DAO. The no-code App makes it fast and simple to launch a DAO, and over 2,000 DAOs have been created since our launch in March! Now, we’re working on adding more governance models, plug-and-play onchain actions, and smoother ecosystem integrations to take the App to the next level. But we want to hear from you! Tell us what DAOs need in this jokerace run on Base.

We’re busy shipping new updates and working on features, so we need your help to prioritize what we move to the top of our Jira board. We’re asking you to propose your favorite feature or integration to help DAOs run onchain. Winning submissions will split a pool of 1,000 USDC and all voting wallets will split another pool of 1,000 USDC.

We have a full Jira board of ideas, so we want to hear what you want to see built next!

Dive into the details of this upcoming jokerace:

Prompt: propose your favorite feature or integration to help DAOs run onchain more smoothly

We have a long list of ideas, so we need your help to decide what to build next to make DAOs work better. Propose your favorite feature or integration to help run DAOs onchain more smoothly, rally support for it, and if it wins the contest, we’ll build it (unless the Product team vetoes it).

Voting and rewards will all take place on the Base blockchain.


The winning entries split a pool of 1,000 USDC.

All wallets that vote split a pool of 1,000 USDC.

Submission format

Include the following in your submission:

  • Your dream integration/feature in a sentence.
  • Why do DAOs need this in a paragraph (up to 500 characters).
  • Links to any relevant Github repos to help us make this happen.
  • Your Twitter handle (if you are doxxed).
