Frequently asked questions

You should choose on-chain DAOs because they provide real power to voters and eliminate the need to trust the core team. With on-chain DAOs, smart contracts automatically implement successful proposals, allowing voters to control protocol parameters, funding decisions, software upgrades, and more. On-chain DAOs are trusted by large DAOs such as Uniswap, AAVE, ENS, Nouns, Gitcoin, and Compound, and they protect billions of dollars in assets. They also support delegation from 1 to millions of voters and offer customizable features such as quorum, voting period, delays, cancellation, and more.

The advantage of having real power as a voter in a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) is that it allows individuals to control protocol parameters, funding decisions, software upgrades, and more. With real power, voters have the ability to influence and shape the direction of the DAO. This means that decisions are not solely in the hands of a centralized core team, but are instead determined by the collective will of the voters. Additionally, on-chain DAOs provide transparency and trust through the use of smart contracts, ensuring that the results of a vote are automatically implemented without the need to trust the core team.

To get a real-time overview of DAO assets, you can use Tally. Tally is a platform that powers protocols, treasuries, and public goods for on-chain DAOs. It provides a comprehensive view of DAO assets, including their balance and value. For example, Tally currently shows that there are over 500 on-chain DAOs with $10 billion in DAO assets. It also allows you to explore DAOs, view proposals, and delegations. Tally is designed for operators, voters, and delegates, providing them with the ability to control protocol parameters, funding decisions, software upgrades, and more. By using on-chain DAOs, voters don't need to trust the core team to honor the results of a vote, as smart contracts automatically implement successful proposals.

Yes, you can delegate your voting power to someone else in on-chain DAOs. Tally, a plug-and-play UI and API for standard DAO governance contracts, supports delegation from 1 to millions of voters. By delegating your voting power, you can transfer your voting rights to another individual who will then be able to vote on your behalf. This allows for greater flexibility and participation in the decision-making process within the DAO.

Yes, Tally supports ERC20 and ERC721 governance tokens.

To deploy a Governor contract, you can use OpenZeppelin's contract wizard or customize it yourself with new or existing extensions. Once you have deployed your contracts, you can add your DAO to Tally, which only takes a few minutes. Tally also provides an API that allows you to access on-chain DAO data to build directly into your product. The Governor framework on Tally is trusted by popular DAOs like Uniswap, ENS, and Compound, and it offers features such as flexible protocol upgrades, support for ERC20 and ERC721 governance tokens, customizable parameters, and delegation from 1 to millions of voters. To deploy a Governor contract, you will need a deployed governor contract and a deployed token contract.

The Tally API is an interface that provides easy access to on-chain DAO data. It allows developers to build custom interfaces and integrate DAO functionality directly into their products. By using the Tally API, developers can retrieve and manipulate data related to DAO governance contracts. This API is designed to work with Tally, which is a plug-and-play UI and API for standard DAO governance contracts. To use the Tally API, developers can follow the documentation provided by Tally to get started.
