Built on Builder
This week’s featured DAO built on the Builder protocol is REXER! REXER is a DAO-like business initiative aimed at revitalizing Japan’s local communities sustainably, focusing on solving social issues while generating revenue. It appeals to those who enjoy contributing to society and believe in the positive impact of profitable ventures for a brighter future. REXER is a coined word combining the initials “Regional” and “Revitalization,” which were separated and combined to express the desire to invigorate Japan by bringing out the appeal of its regions and promoting local revitalization.
