In this section, you will learn which are the templates available for creating a DAO and which are the main differences.

What are templates?

Templates are pre-configured smart contracts for different types of organizations. You can use the templates that are included with Aragon or create your own.

Template types

A Company organization is an organization that uses transferable tokens to represent stake in the company. Decisions are made using token-weighted voting, where one token equals one vote.

A Membership organization is an organization that uses a non-transferable token to represent membership. Decisions are made based on one-member-one-vote governance.

A Reputation organization is an organization that uses non-transferable tokens to represent reputation. Decisions are made using reputation-weighted voting.

If the default templates do not provide you with the desired solution, you can set up a development environment and use the aragonCLI to create a custom organization.
