DAO will control the soon-to-be-established DAO treasury, which will be booted with PROOF’s funding and receive ongoing support from secondary Moonbirds royalties. In addition, PROOF is building a dedicated business development team that will focus on building valuable partnerships for Moonbirds and Oddities.

Moonbirds will connect to the chain and launch the new PFP collection.
