DAO app via Aragon

@chrishobcroft shared a sneak preview of the @UniswapExchange App deployed in a DAO. The DAO have ability to install applications to allow it to:

  • do ETH to Token swaps on Uniswap (e.g. ETH to DAI and DAI to ETH)
  • lend Tokens on Compund (and earn interest).


Discussion initiated with a tweet by Ameen Soleimani, Summoner of @MolochDAO for Ethereum marketing across organizations.

I, personally think this is very interesting initiative to promote Ethereum. Being associated with media and publishing, I’ve seen various promotion of individual projects that are developed on top of Ethereum blockchain (DApp). I think, it’s important to show bigger picture of decentralized economy to common people and help them understand the ease of working, with other benefits of projects on Ethereum. Please share your thoughts on it.
