DAO Experts 2.0 launched this week. We added the following experts to the list:
Exponent: a team of web3 treasury managers that help your DAO scale capital management effectively and without compromise. They provide sound FinOps, risk mitigation, and automated treasury service.
General Magic: solution services for Impact DAOs. Their mission is to make magic happen by helping crypto-philanthropic organizations and communities reach their full potential.
LexDAO: a nonprofit DAO providing legal engineering services to push the ecosystem forward. They advise projects on how to develop tech-based solutions for legal needs.
Opolis: a member-owned digital employment cooperative offering crypto-friendly payroll, employment benefits, tokenized rewards, and membership perks to independent workers in both web2 and web3.
Work DAO: the world’s first crypto employment partner. Their platform allows any web3 organization to legally employ anyone in the world without worrying about complicated token tax and labor compliance. They also offer FAANG-level benefits globally.
On Wednesday, we spoke with the Experts in a Twitter Space. Listen to the space at the link below!
We look forward to growing our partnerships with these amazing web3 providers and helping new DAO builders level up faster by tapping into web3-native expertise.

We’re sponsoring the Kyiv Tech Summit, a hackathon where builders will focus on solving on-the-ground problems in Ukraine. This was organized by Unchain Fund and Ukraine DAO, two organizations we’ve supported in the past. We’re excited to continue partnering with web3 organizations helping solve the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Learn more about the summit and follow the Twitter account for updates here:
Harry Wilson, Product Marketing Manager, was interviewed for a Coin Telegraph article on the ingredients that go into building DAOs.
We hosted a DAO Experts Roundtable with Cohort 2. This group has a lot of knowledge to share on the biggest problems in DAOs today, as well as solutions and their vision for the future of DAOs. Hear their perspectives in the recording:
Friday Socials—Fridays at 1:30pm UTC: Friday Socials are an opportunity for Aragon core contributors and DAO members to connect over exciting topics in DAOs and get to know each other better. The event will be held in Google Meet. For more information, go to this Discord message.
