DAO Governance

Rhys was already living the startup life, working in marketing for Y Combinator when he received an invitation to go down the Web3 rabbit hole with a former boss. Intrigued, he joined the Commonwealth team, an all-in-one DAO governance platform. They offer Ethereum snapshot voting and a user interface for on-chain proposals, voting and funding new projects. Currently, they are partnered with dYdX, Stargate, Cosmos, Mfers, Axie Infinity, and more!
