Customizing your DAO
To add features beyond the base functionality available, you can customize your Aragon OSx DAO by installing a wide variety of plugins.
Plugins can be related to:
Governance: provides the DAO with different decision-making mechanisms such as token or address-based majority voting, conviction voting, optimistic governance, or direct execution from an admin address. They are characterized by requiring the
EXECUTE_PERMISSION_IDpermission on the DAO. Advanced governance architectures are possible by having multiple governance plugins simultaneously.
Asset Management: allows the DAO to manage its treasury or use it to invest (e.g., in lending, staking, or NFT mints).
Membership: determines who will be a part of the DAO and what role they have. This can mean minting governance tokens like ERC-20, NFTs, or any other token standard. Typically, membership-related plugins grant permissions based on token ownership or maintenance of a curated list of addresses.
And anything else that comes to mind!
In the next section, we will learn more about plugins, how they work, and who owns and manages them.
