<aside> ⚠️ Any Noun owner may submit a proposal to the DAO so long as they meet the minimum threshold of 0.5% of the total NOUN supply (1 NOUN until Noun #200) is required to submit proposals.

</aside>

A proposal is one or more transactions to be executed by the NounsDAO contract. Proposals can range from funding addresses to more complex structures that interact with other contracts.

Below are instructions for Noun owners to send a proposal to the NounsDAO contract.

Proposal to fund a project via transfer of funds

Most NounsDAO proposals revolve around funding teams that build on the Nouns protocol. For this reason, the basic template for a proposal is to send ETH to one or multiple addresses from the NounsDAO treasury. To do so, follow the instructions below:

  1. Head over to nouns.wtf/vote and click on the "Create Proposal" button.
  2. Click the "Add Transaction" button. The "Add a Proposal Transaction" modal should pop up. Follow the steps in the modal as follows:
    1. Step 1: Address value is the address of the recipient
    2. Step 2: Value is the amount of ETH to be sent to the recipient denominated in ETH
    3. Skip step 3 and 4. These steps are required for external contract interactions.
    4. Step 5: Review that both address and value are correct. If so, click the "Add Transaction" button.
  3. If your proposal requires multiple transactions, repeat step 2 with each recipient address.
  4. Fill in the proposal title and description. Descriptions accept markdown for formatting and you can use an online editor (eg dillinger.io) to compose and preview.
  5. Submit your proposal by clicking the "Create Proposal" button. The wallet submitting the proposal must hold the minimum threshold of 1% of the total NOUN supply (1 NOUN until Noun #100) to submit.

Note:

Creating a Proposal from Gnosis Safe

Currently, the UI at nouns.wtf does not support creating proposal if your Noun is controlled by a Gnosis Safe. This guide will help you create a proposal directly through the Gnosis Safe app.

  1. Head over to Gnosis Safe app and click on the "New transaction" button. Make sure you connect as an owner of the safe.

  1. In the pop-up modal, click the "Contract interaction" button.

  1. In the Contract interaction modal, fill in the options as follows:
    1. Contract address: fill in with the NounsDAOProxy contract address

    2. ABI: the above step will auto-populate the ABI, but it's incorrect. You'll need the NounsDAOLogicV1 ABI:
