Behind the Scenes at Summon

A Decentralized Future

We are proud to have created the first decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) on Cardano and are now dedicated to making it easy for any community to create one without requiring technical expertise.

As active members of the Cardano community, we are committed to promoting decentralization and providing an accessible DAO experience for all.
