Our Voting Activity: Boardroom


Hello Aave! We are DAOplomats, a governance-as-a-service organization, helping DAOs with their governance, treasury management, grants programs, and community-building initiatives. We established and run the governance department at BanklessDAO, as well as a Recognized Delegate Program at 1inchDAO [Link 1]. We are now working on the 1inch Grants Program [Link].

Our Values

  • Objective Decision-Making: We design and implement decision-making frameworks that enable us to perform qualitative and quantitative analysis to arrive at conclusions.

  • Decentralization: We believe in highly distributed power structures and strive to push decision-making power to the edges.

  • Positive Sum: We strive to make our interactions positive whenever possible to allow the maximum number of stakeholders to benefit via collaboration.

DAO Vision & Goals

Empowering Aave Adoption and GHO Stablecoin Utilization:
We are committed to promoting the adoption of Aave’s innovative DeFi products and services within the broader crypto ecosystem. Our efforts will extend to advocating for and facilitating the usage of the GHO Stablecoin, enriching Aave’s ecosystem and contributing to its growth.

Cross DAO Collaboration and Building Strong DAOlationships:
We aspire to narrow the gap between DAOs by fostering cross-DAO collaboration. Our goal is to build robust and cooperative relationships, termed “DAOlationships,” that transcend individual DAO boundaries. DAOplomats are active governance participants in numerous DAOs, including 1inch and Bankless. We aim to leverage our human capital to build positive-sum relations between DAOs, thus enabling us to collectively address shared challenges and opportunities in the DeFi space.

Community-Centric Education and Participation:
We recognize the pivotal role of community engagement in the success of Aave. To that end, we will prioritize education initiatives aimed at spreading awareness about Aave’s features and benefits. Additionally, we are dedicated to actively involving the Aave community in governance decisions and other activities. Our approach ensures that Aave’s growth remains community-driven and decentralized.


Our members are active governors in the DAO space, such as SafeDAO, Euler, 1inch, Vita DAO, Collab.land, Bankless etc, We will disclose potential conflicts of interest in our rationale whenever it is applicable.
