Introducing the Badger Ambassador Program
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the official Badger Ambassador Program! This program is designed to help Badger and empower committed members of the community to play a crucial role in Badger’s mission for Bitcoin-focused DeFi.
What Is The Role of a Honey Badger?
Ambassadors — called “Honey Badgers” — play a key part in building a thriving community. …
BadgerDAO, as the place to be for Bitcoin across DeFi, needs a long term system for expanding our family of products and partners. We can use this to help potential long term partners get to market, diversify the treasury into potential high-upside assets, and gain access to a large pool of innovative builders.🦡
Introducing the Community Elected Councilors
The Badger Community Council is a group of representatives tasked with overseeing the Badger Grants Program, and are stewards of the funds allocated by the treasury for the Grant Program. More specifically, they will evaluate if a community member’s grant proposal is in alignment with the criteria passed by the DAO in BIP 28.
The council is composed of seven members: four community members and three long-term core contributors. Of the four community councilors, at least two must have technical expertise to conduct necessary grant analysis. …
Badger has one mission; bring BTC to DeFi. Since launch 3 months ago we’ve accelerated to $2B in total value locked, 13,000 active community members, $36M in annualized profit and amassed a treasury of $600M primarily in Badger/DIGG. As we mature it’s critical for us to align with strategic partners that can add value to the DAO’s governance along with bringing long term Bitcoin liquidity.
On Feb.20th community governance proposal, BIP 37 Treasury Diversification through Strategic Partnerships’ was passed and the core team began identifying the right partners to help Badger become the most trusted place to put Bitcoin to…
BadgerDAO is proud to formally announce an integration with RenVM. This new product, manifested as the “BTC Bridge” tab in the UI, will give decentralized finance (DeFi) users direct access to bringing their native BTC onto the Badger v2 App.
Ren is an open protocol that enables the permissionless transfer of value between any blockchain. This integration with RenVM will allow Badger users the following benefits:
At BadgerDAO, we strongly believe in aligning incentives for all Badgers, small and large, — near and far. After reviewing the different incentive systems we’ve designed and those across the DeFi ecosystem, we realized that there’s a tremendous gap…… — one that, if filled, could transform the space forever. With this, the core team is excited to announce BadgerDAO’s quantified goal and our latest incentive system: The Badger Cetedel Program. Bringing $500B of Bitcoin to DeFi.
As a refresher, our existing incentive systems are as follows:
What started off as rumor is now becoming reality. The community heard whispers of a stablecoin coming to the Badger ecosystem and dubbed the mysterious project “claws” — a name which has stuck and is now the official title. $CLAWS is coming, so we’re going to explain what it is, how it works, and what you can do with it in this article. Let’s get started!
CLAWS is actually more accurately described as a “yield dollar” than as a stablecoin. If you are at all familiar with products built on UMA, the concept of yield dollars is familiar. Essentially, a…
Empowering and Incubating the Fiercest of Badgers
One of the quintessential tasks of a working DAO is the effective management of a grants program. Without a working grants program, there is no effective way to incentivize contributions to a DeFi platform that are essential for growth and development.
When initial discussion began around the implementation of the Badger Grants Program, Badger’s rapid growth was evident from its then ~$700 million total value locked. Now sitting around $2.2 billion, Badger has tripled its TVL in the mere weeks since discussion began. …

The Badger DAO is a community of blockchain enthusiasts committed to building products to advance the yield opportunities of Bitcoin in the DeFi space.
