With blockchain technology now finding many use cases—supply chain management, healthcare, and even in government systems, among many others—the role of DAOs (decentralised autonomous organisations) has become far more critical. They are integral for managing blockchain protocols, as well as helping developers work on Web3 projects.

However, the grants rolled out to attract these developers to work on DAO projects often lack a standardised approach, leaving a gap for long-term incentives.

Co-founded by Abhilash Inumella, Subhash Karri, Sriharsha Karamchati, and Madhavan Malolan, Questbook aims to bridge the gap between the grant ecosystem and applicants. 

Started in 2021 as an edtech platform for professionals, the team decided to build an on-chain grant orchestration tool to empower developers.

"I believe in Web3, as this medium enables us to build a composable, trustless, permissionless, and censorship resistant product. All the four things resonate well with the medium and we want our product to be accessible for everyone,” co-founder and CEO Madhavan tells The Decrypting Story.

QuestBook is now a community of 20,000 developers and envisions to be the epicentre of innovation in Web3.
