[UPDATES] DAO Financial Report - December 2023


As we get close to wrapping up 2023’s financials, this month’s financial report on November financials is delightfully boring. Surprise expenditures are down, and we’re remaining under budget for many of our line-items.

Our treasury has shown growth, increasing from $47,340,348 to $47,657,51 fueled by a 2.61% increase in the value of GTC tokens. Despite the operational expenses totaling $622,792, this growth in our treasury holdings signifies effective financial stewardship and a robust fiscal strategy.

At a Glance

  • Last month’s Treasury Holdings: $47,340,348
  • Current Treasury Holdings: $47,657,512
    • This includes both stablecoin and GTC holdings
    • In this reporting period, the variance (+$317,163, 0.67%) is mostly due to the positive impact of a 2.61% increase in the price of GTC token holdings, as well as the monthly Operating Expenses across all workstreams (-$622,792).


At the end of November, the total GTC held in the treasury had a value of $38,056,714.26 and a GTC price of $1.095218686 per token (30 day average).

Key Financial Insights November

Total Contributor Costs

The total contributor costs, encompassing both full-time contributors and part-time support (headcount and other consultants), amount to $593,301. This reflects a decrease of -$16,328, constituting a -2.75% reduction.

Other Notable Operating Expenses

  • Software/Subscriptions: AWS still running higher than originally budgeted. We expect to rectify this in upcoming budget seasons.


Bars go down. We’re working on the broader picture without restricting growth but we’re working leaner, meaner and quicker. The work we’re doing is more focused, and the teams are excited about the strategies that are emerging.
