Common lets you build community on your own terms. We create open spaces for coordination, where decisions are made transparently and any member can participate in improving their organization.

Our initial product is widely used by the crypto community—over 1000 web3 projects and DAOs collectively worth over $50 billion use Common as a hub for discussion and voting. Projects include Solana, NEAR, Polygon, Element Finance, dYdX, Osmosis, and many, many more. We support free and decentralized forms of expression and governance via chat messages, discussion threads, and formal votes. We hope our tools facilitate the community creation of culture, technology, and lasting public works. We’re always looking for like-minded people to join us.
