Website Design, Global Tax Guide and Meme-ing for The Rug | Gearing Up
BanklessDAO Weekly Project and Guild Updates Newsletter
Dear Bankless Nation,🏴
Last week we cleared a huge milestone and finally removed the absurd quorum requirement that was set in place at the end of Season 2. This was an important step in helping our guilds and projects continue to drive the Bankless movement forward. This week, we are primarily looking at Guild updates, but we’ve got some other exciting news as well, including new data from the Analytics Guild, a sneak peak at the new bDAO website design, and kickstarting the Global Tax Guide.
Guilds are the talent pools for members to get involved and level up in BanklessDAO. This newsletter is an invitation to see what we are working on, and your ticket to getting plugged in. We want you to get involved, share your skills, and contribute meaningfully to work that you are passionate about. It is our collective effort that sets us in motion for the long road ahead.
There are many opportunities waiting for you to get involved in these guilds and projects. Check them out, raise your hand, grab your gear, and let’s get going.

📊 Analytics Guild | Guild Coordinator: paulapivat
The Analytics Guild builds data products and uses data analytics to equip bDAO members to achieve our mission with data-driven intelligence. They also incubated DAO DASH.
There is a new forum post that breaks down Activity Metrics and existing dashboards in service of answering a burning question: How many active contributors do we have? They have included a few polls that will help analysts continue to provide relevant insights for guilds, projects and initiatives throughout BanklessDAO.
They have also been contacted by a few Coordinape admins. They are working on the data to create insights for our community.
Read the Activity Metrics Forum post, vote on the polls, and share it to engage as many bDAO members as possible.
🛑 Coordinape admins, please fill out the Coordinape Circle Admin Sheet and contact @paulapivat or @aaron.
A huge thanks to NFThinker, Nym, Icedcool and RedVan for reaching out with the Coordinape data.

🎙 AudioVisual Guild | Guild Coordinator: zimteemo
The AV Guild is the home of BanklessDAO video and audio content. From broadcasting the Community Call to building the next version of our audio-recording bot, bDAO contributors rely on the AV Guild for crisp, clear audio solutions for unifying contributors across time zones.
The AudioVisual Guild is hard at work building out a menu of services to offer to outward facing clients. We're trying to maintain a flow of talent from the DAO guilds into various positions at the podcast hatchery including hosts, co-hosts, guests, writers, and marketing teams. There's plenty of ways to get tied into BanklessDAO A/V Content.

⚖️ Legal Guild | Guild Coordinator: @Eagle_lex Bartolus
The Legal Guild authored the BANK legal assessment and white paper. It also provides regular updates on the legal developments in crypto and DAO governance. They also incubated the Decentralized Law newsletter and Ab Initio podcast.
Starting from Season 3, the Decentralized Law newsletter has moved onto a bi-weekly issue format.
The BanklessDAO whitepaper is in the final stages and will be made public soon.
The Global Tax Guide (GTG) is a project that aims to provide clarity on the crypto tax regimes of selected jurisdictions from across the globe. Over time, it is intended to cover more jurisdictions. Currently, the contributors have almost finished first drafts of jurisdiction-specific contributions and they’re now starting the review process. They are also working on the unique NFT that will be required to gain access to the GTG.
