Introducing DAOstewards

Initial Squad: @thinkDecade, @jengajojo ,links, gruad, 0xBaer


Helloo Safe frens, we are DAOstewards, a governance delegation from BanklessDAO. we are here to bring good vibes, add value and help shape the future of SafeDAO through governance participation. Nice to meet y’all! :100::v:t5::zap:🫱🏾‍🫲🏿


BanklessDAO is active in governance participation and implementation of proposals, with over 3000 members participating in governance. The Safe multisigs are one of the essential infrastructural tools for BanklessDAO, on our mission to create user-friendly onramps to help people go Bankless.

BanklessDAO, building a social DAO in public and we want to bring this perspective to SafeDAO, which we believe will be a crucial infrastructure for our movement.


DAOStewards are a group of “Governators” from BanklessDAO. We are passionate about DAO governance and engage with web3 communities with goal of representing the values and ideals of the Bankless movement within the greater ecosystem.

Our Values

United we stand: We believe decentralisation is paramount in web3 governance. We aim to be the voice of everyday users.

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 Lifestyle: As a group from BanklessDAO, we aim to enable more people to exit their reliability on legacy institutions and fully embrace internet-native digital organisations.

How do we work

We select value-aligned contributors from BanklessDAO to become delegates in our DAOstewards work stream. The work stream participants meet weekly for every protocol in which we exercise meta-governance and discuss our voting strategy and how to pursue the agenda inspired by our values.

Voting power

BanklessDAO received almost 80,000 tokens from the SAFE airdrop, and we are consolidating this voting power under our Metropolis pod daostewards.eth

Why should you delegate to us?

Unlike other meta-governance groups, which are spun up as governance consultancies or represent the interests of smart-contract-based protocols, we at DAOStewards are driven purely by the values of our community. Our goal is to increase the adoption of the entire ecosystem (not a particular protocol), so when you delegate to us, you amplify potential users’ voices.

You can delegate to us at daostewards.eth

We look forward to actively participating in the SafeDAO governance and welcome any questions or comments you may have.


Hello BanklessDAO :grinning: :star_struck:


GmGm Bankless DAO :grinning:

Hey, Bankless; thanks for this initiative. I always tune into your podcast now and then.
Happy to delegate my SAFE to you, but I want to address the following questions.

  1. how is the internal decision-making of the team
  2. What influence do the podcast hosts have in this governance group ( As they are investors across the Defi space)
  3. what is your conflict of interest?
  4. how can we know your voting pattern and area of expertise?

I expected to see all these added to your initial proposal.


Thank you for your questions @Gatekeeper

  1. We run weekly syncs and talk about proposals. Internally we run a sesh poll to decide the outcome

  2. David & Ryan (BanklessHQ) have been inactive in the DAO since inception. They only join us on seasonal Twitter spaces.

  3. We don’t have any conflicts when it comes to SAFE

  4. You can follow our Twitter page for voting updates. As for area of expertise, most of us have been working in BanklessDAO over the past 18 months and we have developed a keen understanding on what it takes to create, build and sustain a community purely funded by the native token. Unlike other governance experts, who relay on a steady flow of stables from protocols to make their community tick, we have no such privileges, we purely align the values of the community based on the native token emissions.
