Trojan Membership: How to Summon New Members

To become a member of TrojanDAO you can:

1) Submit a Membership Proposal
2) Work on a Trojan Grant Proposal

All proposals must be submitted by existing members.

Membership Proposal: Summon New Members

You can become a member by committing tribute (donation) to the Guild Bank, that is redeemable for voting shares in the DAO. Voting shares allow you to participate in governance over grant distribution.

The guiding ratio for tribute is 1 ETH : 1 voting share and a general expectation of 3 ETH tribute, although there can be exceptions, it all comes down to voting!

New members must fill out a brief questionnaire in a dropbox, or google doc

Proposals must answer:

  1. How can you contribute to Trojan DAO?
  2. What kinds of projects do you want to see get funded?
  3. What have you worked on in the Ethereum+art space?
  4. Name one project you like and one you dislike, provide reasons for both.
  5. What excites you about art+ethereum?

Optional: Fill out this online form

Once you’ve created a proposal, find a Trojan member interested in sponsoring your application.

Note: both the proposer and the applicant (new member) must lock up 0.3 wETH for the proposal submission/voting process. The 0.3 wETH will be returned when the voting period is over.

2. Post a forum topic about your proposal here

Head over to the Membership Proposals forum thread and open a thread with the same title as your proposal. Make sure to include a link to your proposal document in the post. Additionally you can reach out on the Trojan Telegram group

4. Ready to Pledge?

Pledge ETH:
Head over to the Trojan DAO interface (, sign in with your web 3 wallet (Metamask or Wallet Connect).

In the wETH center, wrap the amount of ETH that you would like to pledge into wETH, wait for the first network confirmation, then “Approve Trojan”. (4)

5. Your Proposal is submitted to the Trojan DAO for vote
Your proposal needs to be submitted to the DAO for vote by an existing Trojan member.

You can follow the progress of your proposal on the Trojan DAO interface
Existing members will vote for your proposal and if yes votes exceed no votes, your proposal will be accepted. You will be summoned as a DAO member only once the voting period has passed.
As a member of Trojan DAO, you’ll be able to vote on how funding is distributed and summon new members!

If you have any questions join Support Channel on Trojan DAO discord.

Trojan Grant Proposal: Contribute and Become a Member

You can also become a member by contributing work towards a grant proposal.

If your Trojan Grant Proposal passes, you’ll receive Trojan voting shares equal to the value of the requested grant. Successful grant applicants become members of Trojan until withdraw or ragequit of their shares (eg. if an applicant wants to cash-out on the grant to get paid for work).

If you don’t have a proposal you’d like to submit, you can respond to a Trojan Grant RFP to contribute and become a member.

All proposals must be sponsored and submitted by an existing member .
Follow the steps on How to Create a Trojan Grant Proposal to become a member by contributing.


If I pledge and apply for membership but don’t get accepted, do I get to keep my funds?
