Jord has shipped a long-awaited feature for the Nouns Builder website, a personalized DAO dashboard! The dashboard highlights DAOs that you are a member of so you can get a summary of auction activity and upcoming or active proposals awaiting your vote, all at a glance. This latest update also included full support for Markdown within DAO descriptions. Check out Jord’s feature update video here for more details.
Public Good Beer
Builder DAO token artwork has been included in the artwork for the newest label on Public Good Beer! Check out the video in the post below. Who doesn’t love a nice Public Good?
Based MGMT on Builder
Based MGMT is a new type of onchain organization that labels itself as “the culture layer of the Base network.” They are utilizing Zora’s free NFTs drops to provide the visual language of the Base network. They will also be launching a minting platform that will enable anyone to earn ETH by sharing and remixing the free drops, making these NFTs the “raw materials” to create more memes. Finally, these projects will all feed back into the Based MGMT treasury, where revenue from mints and membership auctions will be used to commission more drops and fund the growth of the Base Network. Check out the launch article here for the full details.
DAOlationships Builder Demo
Bankless’s most recent Weekly Rollup newsletter included mention of a Live Demo that was held in the DAOlationships Discord server last week. It’s awesome to see Nouns Builder featured to such a large audience, and even cooler to see other communities educating users on how to use the tools created by Builder DAO.

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. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out for assistance!
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!

Built on Builder
This week’s featured DAO built on the Builder protocol is actually a group of DAOs, all of which are participating in a unique onchain experiment called DAO Wars, started by metamonk and soondooboop. DAO Wars is a brilliant onchain game, made possible by the Nouns Builder Protocol and Layer 2 networks. Created entirely using DAOs built on Builder, it’s essentially an onchain “capture the flag” with a twist. Participants form their own DAOs, all agreeing to follow the “Rules of Engagement”. The game kicked off with two main factions #FF0000 and #0000FF, one for each founder, and has since seen two new entrants, #00FF00 and #069420, joining in.
This is the kind of creativity we love to see! With no defined goal, it will be interesting to see how the different communities band together to outmaneuver their opponents. Check out the introduction article and additional resources provided below and then join in!
The Rules of Engagement:
• Factions are created as a DAO on nouns.build.
• Auctions are 24 hours with no reserve price.
• All founder token allocation percentages follow the formula: 100/(total factions + 1).
• Veto votes are not allowed.
• Faction founder addresses are added to the token allocation percentage under all DAO factions.
• Each proposal executed must result in the transfer of at least one faction token.
• Proposal threshold is 1% and quorum threshold is 20%.
