Who We Are

Owning a monke should be akin to owning a passport to a sovereign nation, a self-sustaining ecosystem where members are given access to opportunities within.

We’re The First NFT DAO on Solana

MonkeDAO began in 2021 as a small, decentralized community that shared a love for Solana Monkey Business – one of Solana’s first and most well-known NFT collections.

Since then, we’ve attracted the early builders, investors, and influencers of Web3, and have evolved into the premier community on Solana.

And We're Not Stopping There

Our vision is to be the premier Web3 community, incubating, investing in and scaling the most promising, exciting, and ambitious Web 3 projects.

Our Team

Meet the MonkeDAO leadership. The team is made up of a Lead Executive, along with 2 appointed executives, 2 elected executives, 5 board of directors members, a treasurer, inhouse council, and an observer.

Every 6 months (known as an epoch), a DAO-wide election is held, where members are encouraged to nominate themselves and vote on who will serve as the DAO elected executives.

There are 5 total positions, and each member is expected to serve the vision of the community, put voted proposals and surveys into action, incorporate and maintain MonkeDAO as an entity, and serve on DAO committees as a representative of the community.

My priority is human connection.

Community is our most valuable resource.

MonkeDAO has implemented the use of two platforms, BananaStand and  Moonlit. Each is used in different ways for monkes to complete quests and earn either $daojones or bananas. They allow for MonkeDAO to use the incredible strength and abilities of fellow monkes to assist the MonkeDAO in various ways.

The MonkeDAO contributor system is ever-evolving, but is currently administered via a combination of Discord channels, X integrations, Matrica, Interlace (founded by our member TH)and the Moonlit collaboration and rewards platform (founded by former board member Lesleye). Every transaction that has ever been signed is stored and viewable on our Realms and Squads pages
