The Park’s Nounish Coffee Shop (Coming Soon!)
As mentioned last week, Drew Coffman and Derek Taylor from The Park submitted Proposal 450 to Nouns DAO to purchase and renovate a coffee shop in LA to make it nounish. This week I have the pleasure of congratulating them on the passing of this proposal! A ton of thought and effort has gone into the project even before going onchain, and it will be incredibly exciting to see this come to life. Check out Chris Carella’s essay on his experience working with the team here. The team also released a commemorative edition you can mint below.

Built on Builder
This week’s featured DAO built on the Builder protocol is bitNouns! bitNouns are an expansion DAO based on Lil Nouns DAO, with the aim of exposing more people to Lil Nouns and in turn Nouns DAO. It provides an extremely low barrier of entry into NFTs and the Nounish ecosystem and provides users with the opportunity to learn how Nounish governance works over at Nouns101.wtf.
