Nova DAO

Nova DAO’s ownership is fully conferred via the $NOVA Token – with no pre-sale or private pre-allocation, every holder’s tokens entitles them to true ownership and control over the entirety of Nova’s protocols.

Coupled with our in-house Studio Nova, holders can look forward to unique DeFi and GameFi development, directing an expanding product library made available under the Nova DAO banner.

Nova DAO Token

The Nova DAO Token confers true protocol ownership, and proportional voting rights over Nova’s Product stack.

Studio Nova

Studio Nova serves as our in-house Development & Art team, building the next generation of Nova’s Web2 & Web3 products.


Studio Nova’s Gooeys is a Play To Earn blockchain series, with a “Game First” fun-factor approach to development.


Coming this Summer, Nova DAO’s first foray into Base brings with it our hallmark art style in a utility-driven NFT package.


No more unsafe “algorithmic” stablecoins; USDO is a hyper-collateralized stablecoin protocol, live on Dogechain!


In-house price-parity tooling to ensure that arbitrage orders benefit the wider DAO – instead of a rogue trader.

DeFi Girls

Developed with Studio Nova’s NFT Kit, DeFi Girls entitles all NFT Holders to claim monthly yield rewards in Ether, per NFT.

Development Driven

Nova DAO is backed by Studio Nova; KYC’d by Certik, and carrying a proven track record of innovation across the Web2 and Web3 Spaces.


$NOVA Tokens can never be minted – burn, staking, and user reward is funded through real yield via protocol fees, and the DAO Treasury.

DAO Driven

Nova DAO is entirely DAO Driven; with the DAO Treasury fully under the community’s control, and oversight provided by the Nova Council.

The Nova Ecosystem

$NOVA is available both on Ethereum and Polygon, via Polygon’s Native Bridge.

Note that $NOVA is one single token, made available on two chains – you can trade on your preferred chain without any differences in supply, price, or functionality – and freely swap your Ethereum $NOVA for Polygon $NOVA via Polygon’s Native Bridge!

DAO Treasury

All funds and assets held within the DAO Treasury (inclusive of all token taxes) are entirely owned by the Nova DAO community, with all actions (such as token swaps, staking distribution etc) fully under user autonomy via Snapshot voting.

The Nova Council ensures both the safety and sanctity of any vote process (maintaining a veto by majority vote in the event of any unsafe actions – such as flashbotted vote attempts), along with ensuring that the wishes of Nova DAO are carried out in full.

Studio Nova / Gooeys KYC

Gooeys & $GOO Token


Product In Development

The Gooeys franchise by Nova DAO is a series of blockchain-based play-to-earn (P2E) games where players manage magical creatures called Gooeys, earning and trading in-game assets which reside fully on-chain as NFTs.

Initially released in 2022 on Polygon as a proof-of-concept title, Gooeys Classic demonstrates the viability of a fully on-chain game – and did so while attracting hundreds of players, while consistently remaining in the top-5 consumers of Chainlink VRF!

The Gooeys franchise focuses on having a truly “Game First” approach; stepping away from the web3 standard of javascript-based games, with titles being built from the ground-up using modern game engine tooling, and a priority on the fun factor.

Studio Nova’s development is now geared towards creating and launching brand new titles in the Gooeys franchise – but in thanks to its fully on-chain implementation, the original Gooeys Classic still remains online and playable today!


Product In Development

Expanding upon the formula set by DeFi Girls, Cypher is an in-development NFT collection targeting the Base blockchain with both native yield rewards, and more of the stunning artwork that has become a hallmark of Studio Nova’s releases.

Cypher aims to reward Base users who have skin in the game – targeting those who have actively supported Base projects and creators for its initial allowlist.

100% of all net proceeds through Cypher NFT sales and after-market fees will go directly to funding liquidity pairs across popular Base protocols – with all NFT holders being entitled to claim profits from these pairs directly on-chain, every month.

Cypher is set for launch this Summer, and marks Nova DAO’s first foray into Base.


USDO is an overcollateralized stablecoin system which can use any token as backing collateral, including volatile cryptoassets such as Dogecoin.

As opposed to “algorithmic” stablecoins which saw the downfall of Terra’s UST, USDO’s hyper-collateralization model instead relies on increasing the required liquidity for a stablecoin as the underlying token increases in value.

This approach allows for any sufficiently liquid token to be used as the basis for a stablecoin – and with this in mind, Dogecoin was chosen as the first token to pilot the USDO protocol.

USDO is currently live on Dogechain, where it serves as the chain’s only stablecoin following the closure of Multichain’s bridging protocol.


Meridian is a custom arbitrage platform developed to maintain price parity for the $NOVA token across multiple blockchains.

Meridian was developed as an in-house arbitrage system which ensures that the desired effects of arbitrage take place (maintaining a matched price on multiple chains), without the negative of said trades benefitting only the trader, rather than the wider DAO.

Following a successful cross-chain arbitrage order, Meridian then directs the profitable portion of the trade to benefit Nova DAO – through Treasury funding, and through direct token burn.

DeFi Girls

Created by Nova DAO members past and present, DeFi Girls is an NFT-Based DAO launched via free mint, with a focus towards creating educational content; primarily around technical analysis, and crypto trading.

Each DeFi Girls NFT is procedurally generated from over 200 hand-crafted assets across 26 layers, created with Studio Nova’s NFT Kit.

DeFi Girls’ self-built treasury is now utilized for liquidity positions; with every DeFi Girls NFT entitling its holder to a share of the yield generated.

All of DeFi Girls’ liquidity positions, and smart contract-based reward distributions are managed by Studio Nova, with Nova DAO now holding 10% of the total DeFi Girls NFT Supply.
