DAOstewards is a meta-governance group from BanklessDAO. We aim to encourage good governance in the DAO space by expressing Bankless values and fostering a collaborative environment for the space to grow.

Our guiding principles

  • United we stand: We believe decentralisation is paramount in governing web3. We aim to represent everyday users of web3 and have their unheard voices heard.
  • Net positive engagement: We represent a community aiming to empower all parties involved and develop in a positive-sum manner.
  • Quality participation: We believe the quality active contributors could help a DAO evolve. We aim to deliver the best quality of work with minimum bureaucracy.
  • Bankless : We preach the idea of self-sovereignty and decentralization.

Proposal: AIP 1.05: Return 700M $ARB to the DAO Treasury

Vote: Against

Rationale: This is a duplicate proposal and we are aware that sending 750M ARB could have been communicated more effectively and open, It is reasonable to give the Arbitrum Foundation the budget necessary for the next few years, especially with the implementation of AIP 1.1 providing more structure.

Proposal: AIP-1.1 - Lockup, Budget, Transparency

Vote: For

Comment : We are in favor of this proposal since it offers clarity to the DAO and a positive way forward

We believe that this proposal, which aims to allocate funds towards the continued development and maintenance of the Arbitrum network, is crucial for its long-term success. Additionally, we appreciate the transparency provided in the proposal, including a clear breakdown of the proposed allocation and the rationale behind it. The Daostewards view this proposal as a positive step forward for the Arbitrum network and we fully support it.

Proposal: AIP-1.2 - Foundation and DAO Governance

Vote: For

Comment : We are in favor of this proposal since it offers clarity to the DAO and a positive way forward

Refined: Arbitrum proposes establishing a governance model for the DAO via a Foundation, aligning with our community-driven principle. We, as Daostewards, support this proposal because it ensures transparency, accountability, and clear roles and responsibilities for DAO stakeholders, improving efficiency and coordination. Our vote advances the goal of building a thriving and sustainable decentralized ecosystem.


Thanks for the update fren.

AIP 9: Arbitrum Short-term Incentive Program

Rationale: This empowers the DAO by accelerating network growth, fostering innovation, and gathering valuable data. The program ensures accountability and governance while supporting the Arbitrum ecosystem’s expansion.


Proposal: Empowering Early Contributors: The Community Arbiter Proposal

Proposal: Build Optimal Onboarding for STIP Teams (BOOST)

Voted: Against

Rationale: With Galxe — set to receive STIP funding — offering services that overlap, we see little to no reason to go ahead with this proposal. DAOStewards vote against this proposal.


Rabbithole was not included in round 1 of STIP btw.
