What is OceanDAO

OceanDAO is a key component in the growth and sustainability of the Ocean Ecosystem.

You can get involved in OceanDAO by building a project, or voting on proposals that shape the future of Ocean.

Builders: Propose your project to the community. Answer questions in chat. The community votes whether to fund your project. There are many categories to choose from.

Voters: Learn more about proposals in detail on Port. Vote for the projects that you think will add the most value. Any OCEAN holder can vote. The weight of your vote is based on your OCEAN holdings.

Go to OceanDAO Wiki for precise instructions.

Please Note: The Shipyard funding program has now been merged with OceanDAO. We kindly ask teams to apply to OceanDAO for all grant funding.

How It Works

OceanDAO funds a large number of teams that build projects across core DAO pillars. By utilizing OceanDAO, successful projects can in time deliver value greater than their grant, creating a positive feedback loop.

Our mission is to deliver funds towards projects that add value to the Ocean Ecosystem.
