DAO-Enabled NFT Marketplace Development Company


Web3 is gradually clocking in, with many corporate tycoons stretching out into it to lure their audiences further. Web3 and decentralization go hand in hand, thereby establishing an open community that is free to make decisions regarding the platform. DAO-enabled NFT marketplace development is about building a completely decentralized trading platform for NFTs, where traders are the decision-makers in the case of changing the functioning of the marketplace.

As a DAO-enabled NFT marketplace development company, we ensure to build a wholly community-oriented platform for trading NFTs. Since we have an extended proficiency in developing both NFT marketplaces and DAO, we can be a suitable technology ally to get your DAO-based platform for NFT trading.


What is a DAO?


As the name is suggestive, Decentralized Autonomous Organization or DAO is a decentralized online community that exists on the blockchain network. This is not similar to the traditional organization that works under superior management or middlemen involvement. So, if you look into the vision of DAO, it is clear that irrespective of the type of online platform, DAO strives to form a decentralized community that grants decision-making authority to the community members. This completely cuts down the need for top-level management that is often dominating.

As a community, DAO spreads the authority to all the members who have the right to take part in governing activities. Any member can raise a request to incorporate some changes to the platform and other members can express their opinion through voting. And to cast their votes, members need to possess governance tokens. That’s how the entire DAO works.

How Can NFTs & DAO Be Made To Work Hand-In-Hand?


NFTs and DAO both have one thing in common and that is smart contracts that are coded during their development. Undoubtedly, NFTs have gained superior adoption in a brief span leaving behind a benchmark in the digital economy. With each passing day, NFT creators are mushrooming and inching towards trading platforms to showcase and sell their digital pieces. And yes, the number of buyers is also on the surge. However, the entire process seems like one and done, where buyers can resell those NFTs and get only the selling price and not royalties, unlike the initial owner.

But what you could do beyond this is, add a long-term value to the traders associated with your platform. And that’s where DAO can be roped in. Suppose an NFT collection gets sold. When NFTs are backed with DAO, the percentage of the selling price will be directed to the community (DAO) automatically. Such funds from every NFT sale can be utilized for the marketplace’s enhancement. Not just this, but also NFT holders can be allowed to stake their NFTs, thereby letting them gain staking rewards. Overall, the community-backed marketplace can work towards accomplishing its mission through funds.

DAO-Backed NFT Platforms & Traditional NFT Platforms - Know The Difference


  • DAO-Enabled NFT Platforms

  • The community members will make every platform-concerned decision.

  • Marketplace users can take part in altering the functioning or features through voting.

  • There are no chances of delay in implementing changes since the functions are backed by smart contracts.

  • A DAO-backed platform can be shut down only when a majority of votes is received.

  • Users will be able to know the entire functionality of the platform.

  • Traditional NFT Platforms

  • The platform owner is the highest authority who takes all the decisions related to the platform.

  • The marketplace owner will only be able to change the functioning or add new features to the platform.

  • In traditional NFT platforms, amendments may take time to be implemented since it is backed by humans.

  • Centralized platforms can be shut down with an order from any governmental body.

  • The functionality of traditional platforms is not transparent.

Different DAO Protocols That You Can Consider For Your NFT Marketplace


You can become the pioneer in the rapidly growing NFT market with the introduction of DAO in NFT marketplaces. DAO doesn’t only facilitate decentralized community building but also offers transparency, staking, and governance authority. There are varied DAO protocols that you can choose based on the type of business model or NFT marketplace. They are

  • Protocol DAO An exclusive DAO for implementing changes in the protocols or smart contracts.

  • Collector DAOAssociated with providing fractional or full ownership of digital assets.

  • Investment DAOSuitable for platforms that facilitate staking and exchanging digital assets.

  • Social DAOFor platforms that combine social networking alongside trading.

  • Media DAOThis DAO protocol is for NFT platforms that solely feature the work of content creators.

Merits Towing Along With An NFT Marketplace Development Under DAO


  • Complete DecentralizationWith a decentralized trading platform in place, traders have complete freedom over their platform-oriented activities and no central authority will have an upper hand on the platform’s decisions.

  • Audit PoliciesMembers of the decentralized community have the authority to indulge in NFT marketplace-related auditing works like changing policies, features, and any future upgradation.

  • Staking Marketplace users or NFT traders can earn additional income through staking their NFTs or native tokens. Also, staking paves the way for increasing the platform’s liquidity.

  • Participation In Events With the DAO-enabled NFT platform, you can let the users participate in happenings like sales, launches, and promotional events of NFT projects listed on the platform.

  • Voting PrivilegesThe platform users are the ultimate decision-makers and they can state their opinion by participating in the voting process that takes place. As DAO is purely community-based, no individual can decide the change but the community as a whole can come forward with the same opinion to implement any changes.

How Does Governance Activity Take Place?


We have been talking all about voting rights and here let’s discuss the process of how governance activities get shaped.

Initiating The ProposalAny member can come up with a proposal regarding any new initiatives or changes in the existing DAO of the platform. Once the members hold a discussion informally, the proposal will be submitted officially to the DAO. Typically, all the unofficial discussions will take place on platforms like Discord and Telegram that enable community creation features.

Off-Chain VotingOfficial voting will happen on the platform and will be recorded on the blockchain. Whereas off-chain voting is about moving the voting activity outside of the blockchain, probably on community-based platforms like Discord or Telegram.

On-Chain VotingFor the purpose of on-chain voting, there are multiple governance tools available in the form of plugins. Finally, the proposal is moved on-chain, where members will cast their choice of vote by depositing their native tokens.

How Can DAO-Based Architecture Be Put Into Effect?


Here is a real-time use case of DAO that can be put into effect in a variety of ways relating to compensation. With DAO, you can build a community exclusively for deciding the compensation of employees. Employee payroll, insurance, employee stock options, etc., can be introduced into DAO by integrating with DeFi platforms.

Remember that the foundation of the community is its members and hence it is important to educate them regarding the structure of the DAO that is enabled on the platform. Also, you need a clear roadmap that describes your project’s vision so that you can captivate audiences whose vision also resonates with yours.
