Going to the centralized autonomous organization (DAO) has no centralized leadership, which is supervised by a community around a particular rule. Early DAO allows investors to concentrate funds, form a national library, allowing them to participate in early enterprises and projects while sharing risks and income. However, the Bank can only be accessed if the membership license is obtained, because the block chain records all the transactions, and anyone can audit the built-in counter, so Dao is also completely transparent. Licensing or any decisions are voted by the community for a while.


The interests of the loop holder are consistent, because the nature of DAO stimulates they don’t do bad things. They want to see the vigorous development of the DAO organization because they have their own interests. It will be a betrayal of their own interests.

DAO has a significant advantage over traditional organizations because they are the Internet native. No trust is a key advantage of DAO. Although in traditional organizations, investors need to have a high confidence behind the founders, but DAO only needs credible code. Trusted code is easy to implement, because the code is open source, anyone in the community can conduct a thorough investigation before the DAO is released.

There is no level structure in such an organization. Despite this, it can make the stakeholder voting to govern the stakeholders, but also allow participants to complete the corresponding tasks to make the entire DAO flourish. Because no level is distinguished, any stakeholders can provide ideas and convert them to proposals, and the entire community is evaluated by voting.

However, today, DAO is maturing. From social campaigns to financial transactions, from legal documents to application science, DAO has penetrated into many fields and is still rapid development and expansion.

DAO launcher and tools

In this article, we analyzed two important components of Dao: DAO launcher and DAO tools, charts from the DAO data platform Deepdao.

The DAO launcher is allowed to easily deploy new DAOs to manage protocols, funds, ownership, etc. The “initiator” here may be a separate product or a set of functions for creating DAOs. The DAO tool can supplement the function that the launcher is not provided to the DAO by additional functions such as accounting, analysis, identity.

The DAO launcher is a functional framework that can be used to start and run DAO.

Different DAO initiators give DAO different functions. It is also possible to deploy DAO without a starter, but this may require most community (and even excellent programmers) to easily master specific skills.

The DAO tool is to help team creation custom function modules, or facilitate DAO participants to manage.

For example, snapshots, adding decentralization for pure coins vote, “In one year, the DAO tool is required to be done by assigning national treaschers to the ginserter governance proposal”.

DAO launcher and tool layout

The figure below lists a series of reviewed DAO initiatters and tools. Its shape is similar to a donut, representing the world of Daoo on the Emperor. Located in the center of the Tanfront block chain, the second layer is a DAO launcher, the outermost layer is a DAO tool.

But this layout is not “complete”: First, the range is missing the main Web 2.0 tool promoting DAO communication, content and community construction, such as Discord and Discourse, Telegram, and other forums, as well as blogs, media and social networks. Second, the DAO field is also growing, and many projects in beta are not written.

DAO launcher

In the figure below, the DAO launcher splits according to the functions that can be provided. The different colors and icons above the image represent different features, and below shows which features are included in these major DAO initiators.

Aragon (Client, Governance): Governance, Agent and Finance Plug-in, Zoom Voting and inexpensive Execution, Dispute Solving Networks.

Moloch (V2): You can create simple and viable DAOs, supporting a variety of use cases that are guided but detrimental, including grants, venture funds, and incubators.

Elastic Dao: This launcher focuses on the fairness of creating governance and assigns DAO to members.

Colony (V1, V2): Focus on organizational ownership, structure, power and financial management, especially incentive, active contribution, such as by reputation.

DAO Stack: Used to create and manage DAO governance protocols and easy-to-use interfaces.

TRIBUTE: This is a DAO initiator with NFT functionality to freely add functions.


Compound Governance: Create a governance, weighted votes, including execution delays, commission, and emergency features. Mainly used for DEFI types of DAO.

DAO tool

The figure below is an overview of the DAO tool. It is a center of DAO, and the tool is circulated around it.

Gnosis Safe: Usually used to manage multiple signature wallets in community treascules.

Snapshot: Chain Voting Platform to achieve simple login governance.

Discourse: multi-channel, rich forums, commonly used in community building, update, and topic discussions, including governance and proposals.

Collabland: Provides a loop to the community group access and robot.

Coordinape: Determine which contributors will receive coordinated tools.

PARCEL: Fund Management, easy to track the dynamic and send payment of national storage.

Proof of humanity: The verified user is registered by biological identification.

POAP: Declats the network through attendance to deal with the documented network.

Commons Stack: Solve DAO governance and accountability, capital and feedback to promote sustainable, overall excitation and community governance public goods.

Deepdao: Manage DAO, governance personnel, content and ecosystem. The full list of all DAO platforms is listed for financial, social and governance data visualization.

Emerging tools

In addition to the platforms and tools already used, there are many other platforms and tools that are being developed when the report is written. Here are some emerging tools:

Prime DEAL: DAO interaction interface, such as Currency exchange, liquidity provisioning and joint venture formation.

Superfluid: Payment on the chain. Currently in the first experience phase.

XMTP: Web3 communication protocol, can be used for messaging between wallets.

Multis: Automatic payment, transfer payment and wallet tracking.

Agora Space / Guild: A Bridge between Web 3.0 Tools and Web 2.0 Social Platform


The DAO starter has been more diverse and modular than a year ago. In addition, multi-function DAO starters seem to be a growth trend. As shown in the above chart, the launcher has provided a variety of DAO governance kits, modules, governance, and other infrastructure. DAO tools are also developed and diverse, covering more and more DAO creators and participants’ needs.

How to further explore open, interoperable new features, and to be observed. As the DAO ecosystem and its tools continue to increase and diverse, more and more organizations may adopt DAO to help manage part of their operations.
