Utopia is an app that attaches to Gnosis Safes and allows DAO managers to set recurring payments (e.g. salaries), receive payment/refund requests from members, and create an annotated transaction history for approved and rejected payments.
DAOS don’t have a reliable process to refund members for out-of-pocket expenses. Blockchain data doesn’t include metadata, complicating payment requisitions. Remembering and executing salary transactions for staff easily becomes unmanageable in DAOs at scale.
