What is it?

The Boardroom Governance portal, powered by Boardroom's API, is a governance framework agnostic interface that enables DAOs to standardize common actions like voting and delegation and enable DAO members to easily participate in distributed governance.

What problem does it solve?

There are now many DAOs and governance frameworks and, as a DAO contributor, it is hard to keep up to date with the latest proposals. The interfaces for each DAOs are also different. There is no central place where participants can go to see, at a glance, all the DAOs they have joined and to understand the associated voting requirements. 

Boardroom provides a complete blockchain governance platform that attempts to provide such an interface.

How does it work?

Here are some actions DAO contributors can take using Boardroom, Using Instadapp’s Boardroom Governance as an example:

  • Overview: View a summary of Instadapp, its governance process, and other relevant participation stats on the Instadapp Overview page.
  • Proposals Page: Check out a list of current and past governance proposals and dive deeper into the details and results of individual proposals.
  • Voting: Vote on proposals by connecting your wallet and selecting manual delegation.
  • Delegation: Alternatively, you can delegate your voting power to others after checking out a list of delegate profiles and their vote history.

If you are a DAO Admin / Manager, here are critical things to know:

  • The Boardroom portal provides aggregated governance information and allows users to cast votes on proposals for protocols for which they have voting power.
  • The Boardroom API is a read-only, public API for governance data.
  • The Boardroom DAO Screener features ecosystem level data on DAO treasuries and governance activity.
  • Boardroom’s Treasury integration with Multisafe allows projects using a Gnosis Mult-Sig to review treasury balances, activity, and payment details directly in the Boardroom Portal.
  • The dashboard page shows individuals' voting history, upcoming votes, and more.

How do I use it?

DAO Masters Insights

Why it's cool:

Boardroom is more focused on educating DAO participants relative to other platforms that are mostly focused on enabling members to vote on proposals.


Currently, most of the protocols that Boardroom supports are using Snapshot, but Compound’s on-chain governance framework is supported as well. However, there doesn’t seem to be integrations with DAOHaus (Moloch smart contract) DAOs yet.

There are currently UX issues such as the lack of a profile system, the inability to filter by platform, and the lack of a clear user workflow, but the team intends to address these issues in the next update.

Words of advice:

Tips for Core Contributors: 

  • To track voting activity and governance participation, utilize the dashboard and calendar view so that you can vote and participate in governance through a single interface.

Tips for Passive Contributors:

  • The resources page of each DAO is useful to research interesting protocols and keep up to date with their operations.
  • Subscribe to the Boardroom newsletter to get updates on DAO governance.

Expected future updates:

There will be a major product update in 2-3 months which will separate the app into a voting dashboard and a DAO explorer (Etherscan for DAOs).
