Build your own DAO

In this build, you'll create a DAO to better understand them. Create a meme DAO for your friends, or a DAO to fix climate change. We'll cover creating a DAO with membership NFT, creating/airdropping a token, public treasuries, and governance using a token.

It's pretty hard to learn about DAOs by just reading random blog posts or vague tweet threads. Instead, we'll hack around with the tech ourselves and build something real. Decide for yourself if DAOs are cool or not.

Use thirdweb: create + interact with smart contracts via JS.

No Solidity required. You're gonna be building the whole project with the thirdweb JavaScript SDK, which is an epic library for creating web3 apps.

Deploy your DAOs own governance token.

Governance tokens are one of the most interesting parts about DAOs. How do you mint them? How do they gain real value? How does voting work?

Get your friends to actually interact /w your DAO.

We're going to actually take our work outside of localhost:3000. You'll have a fully deployed DAO by the end!

This is probably our biggest audience. You're just a cool dev. You're hearing all the buzz about DAOs and want to learn more about it at a technical level!

Industry engineers that want to do cool crypto stuff

Tech moves fast already. And, crypto moves even faster lol. This is good for engineers in industry that want to build on the side and level-up their skillset.

Students that want to build their portfolio

If you're in college, chances are your normal classes aren't focusing on this stuff. Web3 tech is super new and can help your portfolio stand out.

Building stuff alone is lameee. Once you enroll we'll get you in a channel where you'll get to share progress with a cohort of awesome devs.

How much does this cost?

All of our projects are free and open-source! You'll never need to pay for our guides, and we'll deploy on a testnet so your total cost for this whole thing will be $0.

What's the time commitment?

The whole project will probably take you like 5-10 hours. Depends on your skill level. Most people finish it the same weekend it kicks off.

Is this live or async?

It's all async! You can work on your project on your own time. All of the content will be available to you when you enrol and you'll have access to it forever :).

Are there guides I follow to build the project?

Yup. We give instructions. But, it's mainly just a general path. These guides aren't step-by-step. We leave a lot of room for you to build whatever you want, however you want to.

What languages do I need to know for this?

You just need to know some JS and React. That’s it. We'll be using thirdweb which lets us build and interact with smart contracts without writing Solidity.

Will I get an NFT for completing the project?

Yes ser. Every successful completion of a buildspace project is rewarded with a unique NFT! Good luck.
