Members are encouraged to actively participate in the Peace Antz community, contribute to its initiatives, and uphold its values and principles.

🩺Nurse Ant: These members are the caretakers of the community. They make sure everyone is feeling supported and assist new members in finding their place in the colony. They also help keep the group organized and running smoothly.


🍬Forager Ant: If an Ant finds something sweet, these members are ready to follow and bring resources back to the colony. They are excitable workers who are eager to try out new ideas and follow scouts to the sugar!

There is no official hardcap to the number of soldiers that may exist. Community can vote soldiers in or out at any time.


👑Queen Ant: The Queen Ant has the most access to everything across the DAO, overseeing and guiding the overall direction and decision-making of the community. They are signers on the Gnosis Multisig for the DAO and may be signers on other safes as well. They can moderate but that is not their focus. The Queen's primary duty is to protect and grow the treasury. The number of Queens shall be no less than 2 and no greater than 9.

Section 2. Governance

Peace Antz DAO will be governed through its tokens and other potential voting strategies by utilizing other protocols, with proposals and votes conducted through platforms such as Snapshot, Colony, and DAOHaus. Voting power will be allocated by how many ANTZ tokens one has, along with other optional voting strategies that can be adjusted through voting. To encourage action, voting will be only done if there are disagreements with proposals or other issues. Votes that do not involve treasury expenditure or amendments may be done through Discord bots, Twitter polls or other means.

2.1 Voting

Official votes will last no less than 6 days and no more than 13 days. Official votes shall be made over any web3 protocol the community deems as valid and safe. Unofficial votes do not require any web3 tools and can be made on any platform. Official votes relate to the treasury and constitution while unofficial votes relate to more general social interactions.

2.2 Justice System

In the event that a justice system is required, the DAO shall hold fair and open trails. This shall be done through a moderated open debate where each side may be given time to voice their argument and then the attendees can vote on which side they agree with throughout the trial. At the end of the event a final tally will be made. An official vote can then be done to determine the consequences of the trial.

Section 3. Token System

The ANTZ token has a fixed supply on the Polygon blockchain. ANTZ tokens on other chains must be created with the same total fixed supply. ANTZ tokens that can be freshly minted with no total supply must be non-transferable. ANTZ tokens can be considered reputation tokens where contributors are rewarded based on a fixed token scale, as outlined here:

1 ANTZ token = A warm virtual hug, symbolizing appreciation and encouragement within the community.


10 ANTZ tokens = Providing constructive feedback on a project or idea, contributing to its improvement and success.


50 ANTZ tokens = Crafting a tweet about Peace Antz to share the DAO's mission and projects with a broader audience.
