Test DAO - Grant Proposal


Yes, we have a twitter account: https://twitter.com/thetestdao

We’re a subDAO of BanklessDAO, and we began testing DAO tools on behalf of BanklessDAO so they can experience the tool and get feedback from the community before integrating it on the server. Test DAO exists for users to test and receive education on how to use various DAO tools before making the decision of integrating them on their servers.


Will take a look.
Thanks for your response!

TestDAO paves the way for DAOs in terms of DAOtools usage, the project has a unique concept, hopefully it takes off, because it will surely benefit all ecosystems in the space.


We are looking to build together. We will have a database, but we will also have a community of people that will help people build confidence to take the lessons they’ve learned in Test DAO about being a contributor, building a DAO, and growing in web 3 to other DAOs, or to their own DAOs as they build the space.

We want to be the safe space for people to grow in web 3. I believe we can get there.



I think TestDAO definitely deserves this grant. it’s is a pretty awesome project because the biggest barrier to entry for emerging DAOs is just the amount of junk that is needed to be sifted through. TestDAO is taking the legwork out of that so DAO’s can know what tools/protocols would work best for their needs. That’s such an important and valuable resource for any DAO.

That’s how it looks to me at least haha


I totally agree, the TestDAO is getting there. I am ready to support in any way I can.:muscle::muscle::muscle::muscle:

Test Dao is definitely up to the task and will do great in testing and whatever else it’s required to do. I put my faith in it and we are ready to put in as much work is needed. Test Dao deserves this grant


TestDAO conceptually deals with two major issues in the space: How to identify the best ways to keep a DAO ecosystem going without negatively impacting that ecosystem to a very high degree and how to do that while remaining authentically decentralized. I think that solving the issues of DAOs through a DAO is the best approach you can have.

Moreover, the progress tracking system it proposes through weekly newsletters and AMAs is fairly comprehensive and easy to commit to without being exhausting to people engaging with it from outside and within the DAO.

However, in order for the DAO to fulfill its promises, it clearly demands consistent engagement from a team of DAO accustomed individuals. This of course demands resources, not only to compensate the talent already existing in the DAO but also to attract more talent and keep it committed to the mission.

Thus, this project while promises a lot, needs and deserves the financial backing to be able to support its mission and deliver the expected KPIs.

I think Tests DAO vision is great!

There is soo much going in web 3 and one definitely needs a body to filter through the noise and bring us the gems.

They have a great team !

I’m bullish!

I am so excited about TestDAO which is one of the most essential spaces out there for the growth of DAOs. Still in its very early stages and we have a lot to go but this is one space where we can test out any web3 tool and hence a grant is most welcome at this point to get more resources and time in this super cool effort!

Thank you for submitting a proposal to Harmony’s $300M Ecosystem Fund. We are in the process of reviewing your proposal and will assign a representative on behalf of the Grants Ops team.

We would also love :blue_heart: to have the Harmony community participate to ask questions and provide feedbacks.

This is assigned to @gabby

If you have more details to add, please do so by replying to this thread.

thank you so much for reviewing!

As much as I like the Idea but can this not be a subchannel on the 1DAO Alliance? Every DAO gas experience something different and have different needs but having an overview is for sure needed.
I saw you directory is still quite empty :man_shrugging:t3:
And to be honest I also don’t like the term you using “Grant Hunt Project”, at first view it looks like you hunting for money from web3 fondation, fantom and harmony :sweat_smile:

Very valid questions!

I’m terrible with names so I would call that grant hunt project a “suggestive title”. I can see what you mean however.

This is more of an idea that was built out of my experiences in Bankless DAO, dealing with trying new things, and learning about new tools. What we look to do here is simple.

Essentially we are looking for funding to get the testing process and other things off the ground. What is different here is that we are using testing processes (swot analysis, risk, etc) to build our experience in DAO infrastructure, via our own DAO build out.

I hope this helps, however I’d look forward to any other questions you may have!

Note, we are more so using bip.so, and less notion…also.

In the moment @StrongMindsHold get all DAOs together and @ElixirofLife has already a list of DAO tooling.
Think all DAOs should work together over 1DAO Alliance on such a list and what tooling can help. Ideally we would host that on charmverse so everyone can sign up with the 0x and contribute :rainbow:

Are you apart of the 1dao alliance?

The idea is not just to have a database, but to help people put the tools in the growing database to use. We help people learn by doing.

Is there an aspect of this in 1dao? I’d be interested in learning more.

Hello, @jarisjames and @TheTestDAO

The Harmony DAO Ops team has decided to decline this proposal without prejudice. Please visit our Q3 and Q4 Execution Plan for more information.

I apologize that this process has been lengthy and drawn-out and I appreciate yours and the DAOs patience. Harmony and the DAO Ops team wanted to exhaust every option before responding with a declination.

I’m looking forward to the success of your DAO.
