4 min readMay 12, 2022

SubDAO made a major breakthrough in January and February, designing and optimizing the functions of the DAO wallet and dApp. Following this success, the main focus in March and April was to ensure the full functionality of the Ventures DAO template.

Last month, we conducted a beta testing campaign for Ventures DAO Template. After the campaign, the team compiled feedback from test users, fixed issues, optimized some of the product features, and added new features to prepare for deployment on EVM chains such as Ethereum and Moonriver.

In terms of external cooperation, we are in close contact with our partners and actively expanding more ecological cooperation. The following is the progress of the project from March-April.
