    You need a USB-C DisplayPort cable, or a USB-C to DisplayPort (female) adapter, followed by a DisplayPort cable.
    Daisy chaining should work, depending on the monitor resolutions you use, whether your host supports MST, and whether the first monitor in the chain supports daisy chaining. A Thunderbolt 3 port (which takes the physical form of a USB-C connector), when connected to a DisplayPort sink, is electrically and logically a DisplayPort port.
