DigixDAO Official launch on 30 March 2019

After 3 years of development and testing, we are excited to launch the anticipated DigixDAO governance platform on 30th March 2019 11:00SGT.

We are hosting a Preview Event with some of Digix’s partners on Thursday, 28th March 2019, 7:00 pm.

It will be an educational evening to learn about DAOs from other fellow DAO builders and be the first to see a live demonstration of how DigixDAO works. Guests will also hear from an insightful panel of other DAOs, including Digix, Kyber and Maker.

We will officially announce our DigixDAO website address on 28th March as well.

In light of developing regulations, we will not be able to accept participation on our DigixDAO Platform to these countries:

AFGHANISTAN, ALBANIA, BELARUS, BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA, BURUNDI, CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC, COTE DIVOIRE, CUBA, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO, ETHIOPIA, GUINEA, GUINEA-BISSAU, IRAN, IRAQ, LEBANON, LIBERIA, LIBYA, NORTH KOREA, REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA, SERBIA, SOMALIA, SOUTH SUDAN, SUDAN, SYRIA, TRINIDAD & TOBAGO, TUNISIA, UGANDA, UKRAINE, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA), VENEZUELA, YEMEN AND ZIMBABWE (TOGETHER, THE “RESTRICTED JURISDICTIONS”).

Due to the recent regulatory developments and challenges that accepting US participation on the DigixDAO platform could entail, and based on US legal advice that we have obtained, we will not be able to allow USA Citizens nor residents to participate in the DigixDAO governance platform at the moment. We will, however, continue to push for legal clarity and follow closely the rules and regulatory developments in the USA. Having our products in the USA still remains a priority and we will update this as soon as the situation changes.

User Guide of DigixDAO

We have been providing a series of guides intended to allow users to understand how the DigixDAO platform works. They are broken into six key segments, namely:

  1. Overview
  2. Roles
  3. Setup
  4. Projects
  5. Voting (to be published)
  6. Rewards (to be published)

We will be releasing the full guide in a downloadable PDF at the end of the series for those who prefer an offline version of our guide. You can find our DigixDAO User Guide in our Medium posts here.

Another guide, focusing on interacting with the DigixDAO governance platform will be provided as well in the coming days.

Digix AMA with the founders on Reddit

Before our official launch of DigixDAO, our founders would love to have an AMA session with our community members.

The AMA session will begin on Reddit at 10 am, 26 March 2019 SGT / 10 pm, 25 March 2019 EDT. Feel free to post your questions on our AMA page here. We look forward to hearing from you.
