đŸ’ģCreate a House

This page guides you step by step through the process of creating a house

If already have a House created on townhall dashboard, you can simply claim it by logging in.

1. Set or get an ENS domain for your space

If you already own an ENS domain, make sure you are connected to townhallgov.com with the Ethereum address that is set as controller of your ENS name (if you are confused about the difference between ENS Registrant and Controller, have a read here).

  • If the above condition is met, your ENS name will appear. To confirm it's correct, click on it.

  • If you don't own an ENS domain you will have to register one. Enter a name that suits the needs of your DAO in the register a new domain field and click Register. You can then follow Register an ENS domain and come back here for step 2 once domain has been registered.

2. Create your profile

To complete the profile of your House you have to enter a name for your DAO, a House logo and a description. You can update this information after you have finished creating the House.

3. Set your very first strategy

Your house can combine up to 8 voting strategies which will be responsible for calculating the users' voting power. The setting affects all proposals that will be created for that house.

For the initial setup you have to choose one of the three following strategy types to then specify the strategy details:

Each strategy is taking into account the assets that belong to the voting address at the time of proposal creation, not at the time of voting.

  1. Token weighted voting: Voting power is weighted by the amount of the token held by the user. The token can be an ERC-20, ERC-721 or ERC-1155 token standard.

  2. One person, one vote: This option can be used in two different ways: Whitelist voting lets you specify a list of addresses that will be able to vote

  3. Custom setup: If you feel ready to dive deeper into the custom setup here are a few hints that you may find useful:

  • You can select up to 8 different strategies. Voting power is cumulative.

  • Network can be selected individually for each strategy. This way you can leverage multi-chain voting power calculation.

  • It is possible to set a different symbol for each strategy. They will be displayed on the proposal page.

  • You can write a custom voting strategy if the existing ones are the sufficient for your needs. Have a look at to learn more.
