MonkeDAO’s global community lives inside a gated Discord server. To enter, you must own a Solana Monkey Business (SMB) NFT.MonkeDAO Discord
Monkes are some of the most valuable NFTs of all-time.
MonkeDAO was originally founded as a community celebrating Solana Monkey Business, one of Solana’s first and most prominent NFT collections.
SMB was the first collection to reach over one million SOL in sales - this strong growth sparked Solana’s NFT bull market and culminated in the highest ever NFT sale in the history of the blockchain.
The collection’s value has held strong even in the bear market, and is frequently referred to as the ‘CryptoPunks of Solana’ due to its provenance and long-term potential.
Our community strategy has led to one of the most engaged organizations in Web3.
We operate via a decentralized team, with elections every 3 months for DAO leadership.
Our governance model has become the de facto standard for DAOs in the Solana ecosystem.
Our 2,730+ unique Monke owners are highly active, engaged and influential.
We’ll support you to meet the humans behind the jpegs.
We may all be Monkes on the internet, but nothing beats human interaction. One of MonkeDAO’s core community strategies is to promote and facilitate real life meetings for our members in order to strengthen interpersonal ties within the DAO network, and provide added value beyond the computer screen.
MonkeDAO has hosted sold out community events alongside the largest crypto gatherings in over 28 cities around the world.
We also support our members to organise their own local meetups by subsidizing their expenses. Since the proposal passed in May 2022, the community meetup fund has paid out over $8700 for 27 Monke Meetups between our members.

We’re the first DAO on Solana to operate a validator, and we’re the only DAO to launch a stake pool.
We’ve sponsored and judged Solana’s official hackathons alongside organisations Google, Samsung, and Mango.
