Pillar Foundation

The Pillar Foundation Board oversees and ensures the ongoing dialogue between the Pillar Team, DAO, and wider community of PLR holders.

Incorporated in 2017 and based in Zug, Switzerland, Pillar Project Foundation is the corporate entity that coordinates the creation of the platform.

The Pillar Foundation Board
is responsible for:

  • Managing the business and assets of the foundation
  • The approval of annual accounts
  • The election of new members of the foundation and auditors
  • Regulatory signatory rights

The Foundation contracts the Pillar Team at Pillar Project Worldwide Limited, a UK-based service company, to develop software for Pillar and champion its adoption.

In 2020, Pillar Foundation decided to start shifting decision-making power to PLR Token holders in the Pillar DAO.

Join Pillar DAO

Pillar is collectively run and member-owned — any PLR token holder can participate in the governance.

Pillar Governors have a direct impact on the growth of the wallet, how the DAO is run, and what initiatives it funds.

Learn more about Pillar DAO

To become a governor and join the exclusive Governors’ House chat, you must hold 10,000 PLR.

Pillar DAO proposals are discussed in the Pillar Governance Forum and voted on through SnapShot.
