DAO of the Year
Winner: boys club
boys club boasts the most immaculate vibes, most sought after merch (pls send us a boysclub.eth hat 🥺), and the highest density of web3 talent to boot. maybe we’re biased but no DAO has done for bridging mainstream culture & DAO culture than the boys club fam.

honorable Mentions: Radar, nounsDAO, Shiny Objects Social Club, DeepDAO, Kraus House DAO, content guild, DAO Square, cult DAO, nouns builder, rehashDAO, meta cartel
Winner: DAO NYC
the DAO Event of the Year™️ took over NFT NYC back in steamy day in June. a perfect mix of laid back vibes (s/o to those sick persian rugs and pillows), engaging conversation, and lively debates. DAO NYC is where the rubber met the road for leading DAO operators to connect, DAO skeptics to be converted, and new DAO schemes to be made. we can’t wait for DAO NYC ‘23.

honorable Mentions: Moloch DAO v3, Radar’s Future Report
DAOs of the Future
we believe DAOs are the future and when we think ‘future’ we think Radar, i mean, it’s in the damn manifesto: “The first community owned & powered futures engine, discovering, incubating, & delivering better futures.”
DAO talk believes your ideas should be so ambitious they are a little scary. push the envelope. reach for something greater than yourself. change the world. we think radar will do just that.
honorable mentions: everyone we already mentioned. seriously. bullish DAOs.
as i sit here writing i can’t help but reflect on what was:
that’s a wrap on DAO talk 2022, extremely thankful for every single one of you. it’s been a wild year, but here we are. still kicking. still breathing. still DAOing.
your friendly neighborhood DAO talk bois
