Foundations & Swap Guide 2020

Phase 1: Foundations — Complete!

It’s been a long journey. Founded in 2017, The Movement DAO has been active ever since bringing shape to the shapeless. Open to all, we believe that sovereignty is a fundamental human right and that that right should extend to the systems we use.

Our token MVT was launched on November 6, 2017, and has been trading ever since. During this time, members have shaped and molded the DAO. Built to support two things, Connection and Creation, our forum is available for all. We support the creation of value to benefit the connections of humanity. We are, in the end, one.

This first stage on development we’ve been referring to as Foundations consisted of a new Discord Server, a new interactive DAO deployment through Aragon, as well as an introduction to the new Movement DAO Token (MDT). MDT will be available three ways at first.

  1. MDT will be available by swapping MVT-MDT 1:1 using the DAO app.(see Swap Guide below)
  2. Trading on Uniswap.
  3. Available on Balancer.

We’ve also integrated both tokens MVT and MDT, onto Trust Wallet. Read about it here.
