Deploy a prebuilt Aragon organization leveraging templates for the most common use cases in as little as five minutes. Modular apps enable ongoing DAO management. Aragon consists of several products: Aragon Client, Aragon Govern, Aragon Court, Aragon Voice, and Vocdoni.
Spinning up a DAO can be a complex and intimidating process, even for technical and/or crypto-native users.
Aragon provides users with pre-built, modular templates and apps to make launching and managing a DAO easier and more accessible.
Users select from a suite of templates and populate pre-specified parameters to quickly set up a DAO. The product suite includes:
Modular apps allow for ongoing DAO management. The Tokens app is used to manage membership and voting power in an organization. The Voting app allows users to see all open and closed votes and can be used to start a new vote or poll token holders about an issue. The Finance app is used to manage the financial resources of an organization. The Agent app enables Aragon DAOs to interact directly with any other smart contract on Ethereum rather than nominating a trusted DAO member to interact with an Ethereum smart contract on the DAO’s behalf.
Aragon’s template-based design allows non-technical users and those that are new to the space to launch a DAO without having to understand code or governance design.
Aragon actually began as a decentralized dispute resolution protocol and is one of the only DAO frameworks to incorporate such a mechanism.
Pre-built templates and end-to-end frameworks can be more challenging to customize to your DAO’s specific needs.
You’ll probably still want to consult legal counsel about the regulatory and legal complexities of launching a DAO in your particular jurisdiction since Aragon is less focused on compliance specifically than some other frameworks.
