A stroll through the history of the Nouns DAO Treasury
We’ll dive into income, expenses, book value + I’ll highlight the most interesting props thru the DAO’s 1+ year history. If u’ve ever wondered what DAO does with its funds, u’ll enjoy this.
If you’re not familiar with the history and mechanics behind @nounsdao feel free to read my tweet from a couple weeks back.
But if you’re ready, then let’s get dirtyBut if you’re ready, then let’s get dirty 👇
We’ll start with some basic stats on the evolution of the Treasury.
Total Auction Income (Daily Sales of NFTs): 42,860 ETH
Total Expenses (subtracting refunds and stETH income): 13,840 ETH
Yesterday Treasury: ~29,020
This includes stETH and the new USDC payments contract.
I had never seen a graph showing the evolution of income and expenses and the gap between the two, so I crunched the numbers and got this.
Treasury ATH: 29,579 ETH
I was also curious about Noun Book Value (NBV), that is how much each Noun is backed by, and how that value has evolved through time. I got this. NBV ATH (not counting first couple days): 143 ETH
Current NBV: 53.77 ETH
Recent Average Auction Price (last 5 days): 28.76 ETH
Now we’ll get into the nitty gritty of the proposals (props). First, some interesting stats:
Most Valuable Prop: 1,500 ETH — Lido ETH Staking (2 occurrances) https://nouns.wtf/vote/22 https://nouns.wtf/vote/30

111 delivered Many completed props have been for nounish marketing, others have built nice tools

An on-chain delegated voter which enables communities in the Nouns ecosystem to participate in governance with one…
Nouns Terminal, which allows for advanced stock-market like data visualizations of past and live auctions.
