gm, Builders! The new year has brought a wave of fresh ideas, with several draft proposals waiting for your feedback in the #prop-talk channel in our Discord.

Built on Builder
This week’s featured DAO built on the Builder protocol is The Panama DAO! The Panama DAO is aiming to become a network state within Panama by leveraging blockchain technology with a community-driven approach to enable the collaborative and efficient development of public goods. The Founders once authored the Panama Crypto law, which was unfortunately vetoed by the president. Undeterred, they took matters into their own hands and formed The Panama DAO.
