SubDAO Toda Moon Roadmap

We set out our roadmap, a step-by-step plan to realize our final aim — “One DAO Serves All”. Since this month, the roadmap has guided our approach to how we have realized the goals on the basis of product, community and technique, and so on. This article sets out the arrangements that will be put in place in SubDAO. You will find out about all our endeavors here.

Part 1 Product & Technology Development


  1. SubDAO’s official website has been upgraded and revised, which will bring the audience a brand new visual presentation. The revision presents the new look, and also shows some differences in the structure of the official website and the display unit on the homepage.

2. SubDAO developers have built the Dapp for users to create their DAO with a few clicks. In order to make the DAO integrate with the social platform, SubDAO developers created the Chrome Extension which helps users to use their Twitter participating in the DAO world and govern their DAO.

3. SubDAO is aiming to build a tool for all social platform users — — Chrome Extension will provide users more ways to engage their audience and invite them to participate in the DAO governance. It has been launched on Google Chrome Store. SubDAO has completed the second Grant and submitted it for verification. Users can initiate voting on DAO governance on Twitter, and send traditional red pockets in the form of encrypted assets with the SubDAO Chrome extension. To achieve governance, users can use a small and light Chrome extension, which greatly reduces the threshold for participation. The tool also costs little GAS fees. Developers can easily and quickly integrate DAO management functions into applications on the Internet, iOS/Android mobile devices, and PCs.

4. SubDAO officially released the PolkaSign product development plan, aiming to provide electronic protocols in the form of Web 3.0 to replace the system in Web 2.0. This article will introduce PolkaSign in detail from multiple perspectives.

PolkaSign is a Web3.0 application for electronic protocols built on the Polkadot ecosystem. PolkaSign uses the Substrate Framework based on the SubDAO network to develop, can be replaced with any Substrate-based chain, and provides services for any type of organization with electronic agreements.
