Sending & Receiving Tokens

Q: What type of tokens can my DAO Bank & Minion receive respectively?


A: Your DAO's Bank can receive ERC-20 tokens, where minions can accept both ERC-20s, Native tokens (e.g. ETH, MATIC, xDAI respectively) and ERC-721 NFTs.

Q: Can I send xDAI to the DAO?


A: The DAO cannot accept xDAI and it should normally revert the transaction when you are sending it. Please do not send xDAI to your DAO.

You should either wrap your xDAI on wrapeth.com or enable the Wrap N Zap boost for your DAO.

Q: I want to whitelist HAUS for my bank. What is the token address?


A: 0xb0C5f3100A4d9d9532a4CfD68c55F1AE8da987Eb

Q: How should I send and store ERC20 tokens in my DAO contract?


A: If the token is already whitelisted, you can send the tokens to the DAO address, or submit a Funding Proposal with Tribute.

Q: What happens if I send tokens to the DAO address, but have not whitelisted the token?


A: The token will be owned by the contract, but not show up on your treasury.

Q: How do I create a safe for a sub-group / whitelist of members in the DAO?


A: You can create a Gnosis safe with the whitelisted members as the owners of the safe.

Q: I have sent funds to my DAO and it is showing on the block explorer, but not on my DAOhaus Bank Vault. How can I resolve this?


A: You can go to the Bank page and click 'Sync'. Your Bank balances will be updated prompty.

Managing the DAO Bank

Q: I am redeploying my DAO and need to transfer funds from one DAO to the other. How should I do it?


A: Do not send the funds directly to the DAO address.

The first approach is to claim the balances from the old DAO and provide tribute in the new DAO to deposit the funds.

The second approach is to transfer funds to a Minion and use the Minion to send the funds.

Do not send funds to your new DAO address via a funding proposal as the contract is merely updating the internal balances, which members or minions should ideally withdraw later on. Your funds will be lost.

Q: The amount of tokens / funds on chain is different from the amount in the bank on in my hub. Why is this?


A: As the contract holds different internal balances and proposal escrows, the amounts on the Bank UI and Explorer may be different. For example, the Explorer amount includes new members' tributes that are still being processed, or funds payable to Members that are unclaimed. In these scenarios, the amount on the Explorer will exceed the amount on the Bank UI.

Q: Can a DAO on xDAI manage assets & funds on mainnet?


A: Currently, no. However, there is a Gnosis Safe boost coming up that will enable a DAO on xDAI to control a safe on mainnet.

Q: Can I withdraw funds from the Bank without waiting for the grace period to pass?


A: No, funds can only be withdrawn after the grace period has passed.

Q: Are the Gnosis Safes on xDAI compatible with DAOhaus DAOs on xDAI?


A: Yes, they are compatible.
