As StakeborgDAO Ambassador I am on a mission of creating connections between our DAO and other communities. Today I would like to introduce you to Domain DAO and present you with a collaboration idea between our DAOs.
Domain DAO is on mission to take over the .dao domain. Below I made a summary of the company including all relevant resources.
About Domain DAO
Domain DAO was created by a group of DAO enthusiasts with the purpose of buying the .dao domain.
Domain DAO is built as a Register Operator, which will run Domain Name System (DNS) service for the .dao top level domain (TLD). This is conditioned by a succesful application round with ICANN - (https://www.icann.org/).
Upon success, the DAO will open the .dao domain registration to the public.
Tech giants and private equitites have already taken over popular TLDs such as .io (owned by Ethos Capital), .channel (owned by Google) or .book (owned by Amazon). Domain DAO is on a mission to secure .dao TLD fom monopolized domain industry and govern it as a DAO, so that future DAOs will be able to register their website under .dao domain. Goal: the .dao domain should be in hands of DAOers.
Being govern by the community, DAOs are different from traditional corporations and should celebrate their identities at first sight with .dao domains. Domain DAO team has seen a strong demand for .dao TLD from DAOs wanting to shift from .com and .io.
Currently the participation is open to the public via ETH donations, for which $DOMAIN token is received. The donations take place via Juicebox.
Some of the current backers of the project: Bankless DAO, Deep DAO, Pleasr DAO, Juicebox DAO etc.
DAO names reserved: AAVE DAO, APE DAO, BIT DAO, Decentraland DAO, Bankless DAO, etc.

Partnership Idea between StakeborgDAO and Domain DAO
Before sharing the present idea with you, I already took the first steps and contacted Domain DAO team, asking if they would be interested in a partnership.
I approached him with the following proposal:
StakeborgDAO will support Domain DAO’s cause with a 0,1 ETH donation for which we would receive allocated $DOMAIN Tokens (for a 0,1 ETH donnation there will be a 50.000,00 $DOMAIN allocation) and the reservation of stakeborg.dao domain (conditioned by the successful ICANN application).
Domain DAO will post an announcement on their social channels announcing the partnership with StakeborgDAO.
StakeborgDAO will make an once-a-month reminder about the partnership and Domain DAO’s mission. Domain DAO agrees to Like and Quote Retweet our reminders.
Furthermore, a invitation of the founders to a DAOnauts edition, from which we can find out more about the project can be included.
This is my original idea to which the team agreed. I already informed them that the idea will be presented to the Stakebor DAO community and a discussion and vote would be necessary for the partnership to come to live.
For this partnership to happen a allocation of aprox. 210 $Standard will be necessary (based on current prices). This amount will be used for the purchase of 0,1 ETH and donation’s gas fees.
StakeborgDAO benefits from this partnership:
- First partnership with another DAO.
- Support of a cause that will benefit the entire DAO ecosystem.
- Join a list of well-known industry players that support this cause.
- Exposure comming from the DomainDAO partnership announcement and retweet of our reminders.
- Diversification of our treasury with the 50.000,00 $DOMAIN that will be allocated for the donation.
- The $DOMAIN will be represent the governing token of Domain DAO once this is activated, thus the holding of it will give StakeborgDAO governance rights within DomainDAO.
Thus, before coming up with an official proposal, I would like to leave this idea here until end of day on Monday (5th of September) with the purpose of gathering your feedback, thoughts and comments.
Should the feeling about this proposal be overall positive, I will move on and draft the official proposal.
