The Web3API token holders, known collectively as the "DAO", are responsible for stewarding the Web3API ecosystem. The DAO controls the:

  • Treasury
  • Token minting
  • DAO configuration
  • ENS domain (web3api.eth)

In the future, it is anticipated that the DAO will also govern:

  • Web3API repositories
  • Web3Hub platform deployments
  • DAO-verified APIs (hosted at web3api.eth subdomains)
