As Web3 adoption grows, DAOs have grown from periphery figures to serious players in the space. According to DeepDAO, they hold over $10 billion worth of treasury assets, and have over 1.8 million governance token holders, with nearly 550,000 active voters/proposal makers. They’ve become a prominent voice in the crypto ecosystem whose influence will keep growing along with their treasuries.

One of the great things about Web3 is that even as it evolves and introduces what would normally be a complicated concept such as DAOs, the community will always provide ways to streamline processes to make it digestible. It’s this very reason we’ve seen incredible proliferation in the DAO tooling space— with many DAOs leveraging tools to help automate formation, control, and management. These tools can be deployed for use in aspects such as infrastructure, treasury management, governance, and voting to name a few.

The expanding number of DeFi protocols and dApps have seen the adjacent rise of ‘as-a-service’ solutions to help accelerate the ecosystem’s growth. The only area where this hasn’t been the case is with ‘Capital-as-a-Service’ (CaaS).

The abundance of opportunity within DeFi makes it an enticing avenue for teams looking to manage and grow their treasuries. However, it also makes identifying long-tail, profitable endeavours a huge investment of time and consistent strategy pivots that most teams can’t commit to — even if they have the knowledge to do so effectively. This makes treasury management within DeFi a risky and resource-intensive function.

As DAOs mature and accumulate cash flows, it becomes paramount for these teams to manage their capital efficiently. Efficient treasury management is no mean feat, however — they require planning, coordination, operation and of course, effective execution.

This is where Exponent can be a game-changer.
