🥭 MangoDAO: Pioneering DAOs on Solana
Bear market is a great opportunity to learn and build!
This week’s article is exploring the governance structure of the first fully on-chain Solana margin trading, borrow & lending markets, and perpetual futures protocol — MangoDAO.
Mango plays an important role in the Solana DAO ecosystem, as it supports the creation of DAO governance tools such as realms.today— a piece of decentralized governance on Solana.
Mango DAO governance is fully decentralized, as all the decisions are made collectively: Discussing on Discord → Discussing on Governance Forum → Realms On-Chain Voting.
To learn more about the MangoDAO governance process, give our deep dive a read!
