+
+On Monday, Bisq hit the most significant landmark in its 5-year history: it launched v1.0 of its software.
+
+Version 1 is always a big milestone for any software project, but in Bisq's case it was extra-special: it included the mainnet launch of the Bisq DAO, which fundamentally changes the governance of the Bisq network itself.
+
+Bisq stakeholders (traders and contributors) are now in charge. The Bisq founder role [has been dissolved](https://github.com/bisq-network/roles/issues/1#issuecomment-478204839).
+
+The Bisq DAO has been in the works since work on Bisq begun back in 2014, but it's been iterated conceptually and technically many times since then to ensure it can achieve truly decentralized management and funding of the Bisq network.
+
+[The constraints](https://twitter.com/bisq_network/status/1103293547711746050) were not trivial: there could be no centrally-owned wallets, no legal entities, no investors, etc.
+
+Governance is always a tough thing to tackle, especially for a non-protocol project where people are needed to consistently deliver development, support, and other services, but the Bisq DAO seems to offer a promising solution. It offers a system of incentives that pushes all stakeholders to make the project sustainable simply by acting in their own best interest. The resulting dynamic challenges many social, economic, and organizational dynamics in significant ways, which we've started to cover in [this series](https://bisq.network/blog/dao-benefits-funding/).
+
+Early indications are encouraging: about 150 trades used BSQ to pay trading fees in the first 24 hours it was live.

actually 129 is the exact number, just counted from the block explorer from genesis up to 11am april 16.
