This documentation describes planned functionality and processes that MakerDAO has not yet implemented. Be aware that parts may be inaccurate or out of date.

MiniDAOs are one of the three types of SubDAOs in the Maker Ecosystem along with AllocatorDAOs and FacilitatorDAOs.


Unlike the other SubDAO types, MiniDAOs are experimental SubDAOs that do not have any specific mission other than furthering the growth of the Maker Protocol. They are spun off by AllocatorDAOs in their exploration of innovative concepts and products. As such, MiniDAOs are expected to display the greatest diversity among SubDAO types. Their experimental nature may also make them likely to be short-lived if they fail to meet adequate product-market fit.

MiniDAOs are by design easy for AllocatorDAOs to spin off.
