Over the past week or so Builder DAO has been mentioned in several podcasts. Check out the links below to listen to Builder DAO member Chris Carella on The Noun Square’s Zero Rights Reserved podcast (head over to Zora and mint yours today) and the Friday Recap on the Overpriced JPEGs podcast hosted by Carly Reilly and Zeneca! I also dropped a link to the episode of OP Radio I mentioned recently which is now available on all platforms.
Updated Builder DAO Description
With the passing of Proposal 66, Builder DAO and the Nouns Builder Protocol have adopted an updated Mission, Vision, and Values. The “About” tab below the Builder DAO auctions has yet to be updated to reflect this change though. Prof Werder is proposing we change it to the text below. Please add any thoughts or comments to the Discord thread here.
The BuilderDAO mission is to develop DAO infrastructure as a public good, enabling decentralized, inclusive, and transparent decision-making processes that empower onchain communities to shape their collective futures.
Builder DAO established an Unincorporated Nonprofit Association (UNA) in Wyoming for its US operations. For more information about the DAO’s org structure, please visit https://forum.nouns.build/.

Just wanted to drop a quick reminder about the Proposal Dashboard which I have been maintaining in Notion. If you ever have questions about previous proposals, you can find general info in the document and links to the discussions of each proposal for more details. If you ever have any links, media, or even corrections you’d like to suggest, feel free to contact me on Discord (0xSatori) or Twitter (@0xSatori) any time.
Protocol Rewards Discussion
The discussion about the implementation of protocol rewards continues! The details need to be ironed out as soon as possible so our engineers can implement these rewards in upcoming Builder protocol updates. Please take some time to review the latest HackMD document here and contribute to the conversation in Discord here.
Infinite Dev Round Winding Down
Unfortunately due to a lack of submissions to the round, our Infinite Dev Round is ending and the ETH will be returned to the treasury. I’ll include one final update when this has taken place.

Builder Channel on Farcaster
The Builder Channel on Farcaster displays a feed of activity from members of Builder including casts and onchain activity such as auctions, proposals, and votes. You can also now see the DAO feed directly on the nouns.build website by clicking ‘Feed’ as shown in the screenshot below!
It’s a really great way to keep up to date with your fellow Builders! There are no longer invites to join the platform, instead wallets that are holders of certain NFTs (including Builder DAO tokens!) are eligible to register.
The art featured in this week’s newsletter was created by myself using the NounsAI playground. If anyone wants to send me artwork they’ve drawn or generated with AI, please DM me on X or Discord, and I will include your art and a shoutout in a future newsletter!
