Bankless DAO has been bootstrapping their publishing arm over the course of the past year, where today they are offering writing and publication services to the wider ecosystem of DAOs and web3 projects.
In the interest of growing adoption of DAO tooling and creating more synergy between DAO communities, I propose that DAOhaus funds a 2,000 - 3,000 word research article focused on the Yeeter as a innovative and powerful tool for communities to crowd-fund capital in a trust-minimized way.
Bankless DAO, and specifically the Writers Guild in BDAO, has established itself as a reptuable outlet for publishing content on behalf of its clients.
The content published by BDAO is posted to their new site. Once published on the site, content is syndicated out through their twitter which has 55k followers and included in the BDAO weekly rollup, which is sent through email to 11k readers.
One consideration we may have is that viewership on the new site is relatively low with only 300+ views for each of the pieces linked above.
Bankless DAO is interested in a collaboration with DAOhaus that gives BDAO readers exposure to the DAOhaus Yeeter.
BDAO’s focus for the first phase of this project will be to showcase the Yeeter, highlighting the ethos behind the project, the core functionality, as well as how communities are using it to support public goods funding. This would serve a manifold benefit, potentially driving more BDAO readers to using Yeeter and DAOhaus tooling.
After the groundwork has been laid, in phase 2 we are looking at a future partnership opportunity with BDAO, where the Client Services arm focused on Publication strategy could use the DAOhaus Yeeter to fund an Evergreen content flow such that readers who want to support web3 content publication can do so by yeeting and supporting the BDAO publication!
The appetite for this is relatively high, with members of BDAO energized and excited about the possibility of collaborating with DAOhaus.
We might propose that for the first phase of this collaboration the team working on the Research piece (~5 people) work with DAOhaus to setup a DAO on Optimism, and we airdrop them tokens so they can commence work. We might even consider requesting Loot in exchange for the deposited capital (launching on Optimism might bring us more brownie points too!).
If this is something we are by in large in support of, I will make a suggestion to the BDAO Publication team that we create a DAO so we can dogfood this collaboration and help them to get their feet wet with our tooling. This way BDAO will have an easier time writing about the Yeeter.
BDAO is requesting a total of $2k USD, with 1k requested in DAI along with $1k USD equivalent in HAUS tokens.
Have a look at the Bankless DAO publishing Deck to get a better idea of how they are charging clients with respect to the final deliverable the team ships.
