Looks like Builders are ready to go Base jumping! A temp check poll put up by Prof has shown a clear desire for Builder DAO to migrate to Base when the migration tool is ready. I think it’s pretty safe to say that when this vote goes onchain we’ll see the same results, which means it’s just a matter of time until we make the transition and fully embrace the Superchain!
