Reconciles the current DAO ecosystem fragmentation through a SuperDapp that forms the DAO space tissue in Optimism. The Superdapp could include but is not limited to: learning opportunities, job opportunities, marketplaces, dashboards & feeds.
The deliverable should be a Proof of Concept with a modular frontend that unifies DAO tooling in one Dapp and can be further scaled in the future to other tooling in the Superchain.
Intent 2. Grow the Superchain.

We often talk about interoperability being one of the most fundamental value unlocks. Yet web3 is extremely fragmented. Silos not only create a terrible User Experience, many amazing projects fail to get enough traction since they don’t get enough exposure (fun fact: EAS was built in 2020 and after launch it was paused twice. Source: Green Pill Podcast - Ethereum Attestation Service).
Likewise, Optimism already has a lot of cool dApps deployed, but they’re all fragmented across different front-ends, making the discovery & usage unnecessarily hard.
Having the first DAO tooling SuperDapp in Optimism would be a great win for the Superchain, DAO tooling projects and potentially bring many new users from the DAO ecosystem.
- Research key DAO tools to be scoped for the POC.
- Design a modular implementation.
- Build integrations with the selected DAO tools.
- Create a frontend optimized for user needs. (learning, job hunt, feed, etc.)
- A report on the tools that can be added in the present and in the future.
- Figma or similar design of the UI.
- Functional UI optimized for user needs.
- Users interacting with the frontend
- Users interact with the DAO tooling UI as opposed to using the original UI
- Specific metric generated by each DAO tool in the UI
*Have you engaged a Grant-as-a-service provider for this Mission Request? If so, please disclose the details of this arrangement, to the extent possible:
This mission request draft was written by Cotabe, a core contributor of General Magic, an organization that offers Grant Management services. Nor General Magic, nor myself are getting paid or expecting any compensation for this work. We are doubling down in supporting the Optimism Collective in its pursuit to build a better tech stack for the Optimism Collective and attract builders and projects more efficiently.
*Has anyone other than the Proposing Delegate contributed to this Mission Request? If so, who, and what parts of this application did they contribute to?
This draft was created based on the original idea of MetaGame and with their support I made only minor modifications.
