Imagine a world where everyone has a voice, where decisions are made collectively, and communities thrive. That vision inspired us to create SmartDAO, a platform that empowers individuals and enables decentralized governance at its finest.
What it does
SmartDAO revolutionizes decentralized governance, enabling transparent decision-making and seamless cross-chain collaboration.
How we built it
To build our project, we utilized a combination of technologies and tools to ensure a robust and efficient solution. Here's an overview of the key components we used:
Reactjs: We chose Reactjs as the frontend framework for its component-based architecture and its ability to create interactive and responsive user interfaces.
Sophia: We leveraged Aeternity's smart contract language, Sophia, to develop the DAO creation and management logic. Sophia's strong typing and functional programming features allowed us to write secure and reliable smart contracts.
ae-project: We used ae-project, a development framework provided by Aeternity, to structure and manage our project. It streamlined the deployment process and provided convenient commands for compiling and testing smart contracts.
TypeScript: TypeScript was integrated into our project to add static typing and enhance code maintainability. Its type-checking capabilities helped identify errors during development, resulting in more robust code.
ae-cli: The ae-cli command-line interface was utilized to interact with the Aeternity blockchain. It provided convenient commands for deploying and interacting with smart contracts, making the development process smoother.
aepp-sdk: We integrated the aepp-sdk, Aeternity's software development kit, to connect our Dapp with the Aeternity blockchain. This SDK offered various functions and APIs for interacting with blockchain transactions, addresses, and state channels.
Tailwind CSS: To ensure a visually appealing and responsive user interface, we utilized Tailwind CSS. This utility-first CSS framework enabled rapid UI development by providing pre-defined classes for styling components.
By combining these technologies and tools, we were able to create a powerful and user-friendly DAO creation and management Dapp on the Aeternity blockchain.
Challenges we ran into
- Using a token for DAO membership
- Integrating our frontend with the smart contract and superhero wallet
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of creating a governance framework that promotes fairness and inclusivity, and our successful bridging mechanism for asset transfer.
What we learned
We learned the importance of incentivizing active community participation and the value of cross-chain interoperability.
What's next for SmartDAO
Our roadmap includes expanding functionality, forging strategic partnerships, and driving the future of decentralized governance.
