Introduction

Welcome to RomeDAO

$ROME is the reserve currency of Kusama & Polkadot. The project is currently deployed to Moonriver, an EVM compatible canary network.
Three chief objectives currently exist for building the future of Rome:
  • Helping build Moonriver & Moonbeam into prospering networks with flourishing ecosystems. Their success is our success.
  • Growing RomeDAO into the largest holder of total liquidity across Kusama & Polkadot.
  • Unlock the power of governance through gamification and a range of new experiences for stakers, bonders, and general participants in the RomeDAO ecosystem.
Embracing the experimental nature of the Kusama network, we are pushing the limits of communities and DAO engagement. Our DAO embarks on grand campaigns on a warmap that outlines its progress, status, and each individual's place in the ecosystem.

Why deploy to Kusama and Polkadot?

The two chains offer a number of advantages over chains like Ethereum, including but not limited to higher throughput/lower gas fees, cross-chain transactions, and a burgeoning base of liquidity. The energy in this ecosystem is unmatched, setting RomeDAO up for a prosperous future to build and grow alongside the growth of Kusama and Polkadot.
Kusama is a scalable network of specialized blockchains built using Substrate with a nearly identical codebase to Polkadot. The network is an experimental development environment for teams who want to move fast and innovate on Kusama or prepare for deployment on Polkadot.
Kusama is experimental but also secure. It takes a more community focused lens than Polkadot, while acting as a place for pushing the boundaries of what's possible.

What is Moonriver?

Moonriver is the main EVM compatible parachain of Kusama. It has cemented itself as the liquidity leader thus far for EVM compatible parachains in the ecosystem.
Being a parachain means cross-chain transactions are built in the fabric of the blockchain. Other parachains which are individual blockchains can perform cross-chain communication with Moonriver. This is a powerful feature that shouldn't be overlooked. Despite all of the advantages of building on Moonriver, it's still relatively nascent, with limited total liquidity.
RomeDAO has an opportunity to lead Moonriver to new heights, being involved in every transaction that happens on the network. All roads lead to Rome.
One day the DAO may consider expanding to other parachains, like the eventual Moonbeam deployment on Polkadot.
