Allo Protocol v2 Goes to Mainnets

We're thrilled to announce a milestone in the development of community-driven resource allocation: Allo Protocol v2 is now live on mainnets. This launch signifies a pivotal moment for the modern community, enabling decentralized organizations to easily own and invest in their shared spaces. Allo unlocks the democratic distribution of resources, ensuring transparency, inclusivity, and innovation on a wider scale. 

Discover the Power of Allo v2: Key Features and Innovations

Allo Protocol v2 introduces a host of new features for builders and the communities they serve:

  • Pools for Precision Allocation: v2’s atomic units are dedicated pools, allowing communities to make precise funding allocation decisions. These pools facilitate targeted resource distribution, enabling communities to delegate resource allocation to their members that are closest to the need. Whether it's supporting open-source software, charitable causes, or innovative projects, Allo provides each cause a dedicated funding pool.
  • Simple, Flexible Strategies: Allo's composable strategy contracts make it exceptionally easy to iterate and refine resource allocation. These intuitive contracts provide communities with the flexibility to tailor their allocation strategies, ensuring that funds are distributed according to their unique goals and values.
  • Project Registry for Decentralized Trust: The Project Registry, a simple yet powerful database of projects, unlocks a new trust layer between builders and the communities they serve. It simplifies project registration and proposal presentation while enabling on-chain reputation-building, allowing the community to recognize and support initiatives with a proven track record.
  • Best-in-Class Data Availability: In partnership with Spec, Allo Protocol incorporates a best-in-class data availability system. This strategic alliance ensures readily available data, enhancing platform efficiency and reliability.
  • Multi-Chain: Allo is EVM-compatible and deployed on multiple chains (Eth Mainnet, Optimism, Arbitrum, Celo, PGN), enabling users to leverage the protocol on their preferred blockchain networks. This multi-chain functionality broadens accessibility and ensures Allo's reach extends to diverse ecosystems. You can find our full list of chains and addresses here
  • Easy-to-Use SDK: Allo offers an easy-to-use Software Development Kit (SDK), simplifying the process of building with Allo. The toolkit empowers developers to create innovative solutions that harness the power of Allo's resource allocation mechanisms.
