Protocol-first DAO Strategy

January 11th, 2023
The unstructured community-first experiment has failed. The truth is that small founding teams create winning products and services. The community-first maxim militates against this, arguing that success correlates to the number of people in Discord. This assumption encourages a "bread and circuses" pattern of paying people for low-value activities. It also conflates those with a founder mentality with contributors seeking paid work.

DAOs as Digital Nation-States

May 30th, 2022
If you've worked in the DAO space for any length of time, the question of legal incorporation is bound to arise. It seems the reflex impulse to wrap a newly formed DAO in a legal wrapper to attain increased legitimacy or supposed legal protection. It sounds reasonable, but a careful unpacking of terms and concepts reveals deep confusion.

The Value of DAO Project Managers

April 26th, 2022
DAOs desperately need skilled project managers. As every skill set required by a project is potentially an entirely different agent or collection of agents, the need for a kind of general contractor to piece together disparate deliverables is essential. Traditional models of team forming/norming/storming do not work when people and groups themselves are transient and lack reputation systems. Even existing highly skilled project managers must reinterpret and reassess the tools of their trade to prioritize the unique incentive dynamics present in the Web3 context.

Rethinking the DAO Contributor Funnel

February 12th, 2022
Not everyone who joins your Discord server is a member of your DAO, and neither should they be. Different levels of community engagement have different privileges and expectations, and to conflate them is a disservice to your community. Some people want to participate casually, while others are seeking full-time employment. Some join for leisure, while others aim to untie the Gordian knot of decentralized governance.

Optimizing DAO Delivery

October 12th, 2021
Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) are the next evolution in human organization. They are enabled by the Internet and will, most assuredly, have an impact just as large. While their present state is one of early infancy, they are the ground soil from which the world’s first true digitally native nations will emerge. It’s in their core design to enable outputs and outcomes of greater efficiency than traditional organizations could ever hope to imagine.
