Frequently Asked Questions

What is Blueberry DAO?

Anyone holding a PURP can propose and vote on initiatives and projects, which are funded by the treasury. As a community, we decide how to allocate funds and how to support kids in need.

How do I setup a digital wallet? If you've never used cryptocurrencies before, here's a step by step guide to setup a digital wallet and purchase Ethereum, the native currency of Blueberry DAO. There are many different types of wallets. This guide is an example using the 1inch wallet. Download the 1inch Wallet app from the App Store (for iOS users) or Google Play Store (for Android users). Open the 1inch Wallet app and create a new wallet by selecting "Create New Wallet" on the home screen. Choose a strong password for your wallet and confirm it. Write down your seed phrase and store it in a safe place. Your seed phrase is the backup to your wallet and can be used to recover your wallet if you forget your password. Once you've created your wallet, you can add cryptocurrency to it by selecting "Add Funds" on the home screen. Select the Ethereum (ETH) cryptocurrency to add to your wallet, and choose a payment method (e.g. credit card or bank transfer). Enter the amount of ETH you want to purchase, and follow the instructions to complete the payment process. Once your payment has been processed, ETH will be added to your wallet. You can now use your cryptocurrency to buy NFTs or other goods and services that accept cryptocurrency as payment. To view your wallet balance and transaction history, select "My Wallet" on the home screen of the 1inch Wallet app. ​Note: It's important to keep your wallet and seed phrase secure at all times to prevent unauthorised access to your cryptocurrency. Never share your password or seed phrase with anyone, and be wary of phishing scams and other fraudulent activities in the cryptocurrency space.

The DAO is governed by its community members, who vote on proposals to determine how funds are allocated. Blueberry DAO operates on a social layer of trust, where successful proposers are given full responsibility to carry out their proposal objectives. This creates a transparent and accountable system for supporting children's charities and initiatives, driven by the community and guided by the principles of trust, transparency, and accountability.

How else can I support? We have a merch store with items designed by Lilpurpberry. Items can be purchased using traditional forms of payment. 50% of merch sales are sent to the DAO treasury. The remaining 50% helps Lilpurpberry maintain the website and DAO infrastructure. If you have ideas relating to charities and initiatives, partnerships or any suggestions that can support the growth and running of the DAO, you can also drop a message in Twitter or the Discussion page.
