Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had amazing holidays and are feeling refreshed and ready to hit the ground running in 2024. Over the past year Builder DAO has seen incredible growth, and the new year is a perfect time for looking back on some of the community’s greatest achievements.
We’ll begin with a quick journey through Builder DAO’s first year, crafted by deebee. After that we’ll go through the awesome tech that has been built on or around the Builder Protocol. Then I’ll highlight accomplishments of the community, and finally finish with some moments from DAOs built on Builder. If this doesn’t get you stoked for what’s coming in 2024 I don’t know what will! Enjoy!
