Conviction Voting cadCAD model: Aragon & 1Hive

:fire: :fire: An exciting new cadCAD model release! :fire: :fire:

This model of Conviction Voting is a digital twin that can be used to test & validate the safety of this new on-chain governance tool in managing communal funds. Check it out for all the details:

The model was built as a collaboration between BlockScience, 1Hive, Aragon & the Commons Stack, and can be upgraded to include additional considerations such as a bonding curve, a uniswap instance, or other improvements to increase functionality piece by piece.

This model can be demonstrative for multiple audiences:

  • For builders: if you are looking to build a DAO and use Conviction Voting, this model is a must read
  • For system modelers & cadCAD designers: this model serves as a good starting point to learn cadCAD best practice & model structure
  • For governance enthusiasts: this model forms the foundation for a wide-open design space for novel, real-time governance techniques

Aragon recently launched a Conviction Funding pilot to test out the new CV functionality, which you can read more about here:
