Discussion Materials

Blockchain: Turning Egosystem to Ecosystem, by Milly Perry, January 2022

The book presents the impact of technology on business and public organizations, future organizations, cities and especially the impact on the end user (you and me) in diverse fields. The book presents principles and ideas (and does not deal with indepth explanations of the technical aspect), it is important to remember that technology is not a magic solution and it is the means, not the aim. Organizations should consider ideas and their applications according to needs and strategy, intelligently, with the required care and responsibility, and not make technology to a goal, but to an efficient and effective way to improve our life.

Discussion of likely required types and voting for Shimmer DAOs

by @dumdave (Iota Discord), 24 Nov 2021 – This is a working document, intended to be updated as events evolve. It examines likely DAOs and their structures – and will also politely point out weaknesses where it finds them in whatever proposals are currently under consideration.

The Justice Protocol, Kleros

Kleros is a decentralized arbitration service for the disputes of the new economy.

Kleros and the Decentralised Justice Movement

In a world moving towards blockchain platforms, decentralized courts will be a key piece of infrastructure for the future of commerce. Meet Kleros and the decentralised justice movement. Talk by Federico Ast, CEO of Kleros.

Web 3.0 Governance Blueprint

Longhash Ventures and Asia DeFi Network: To help DeFi and other Web 3.0-native projects shift towards a fully decentralized organization and understand the benefits, trade offs, and challenges, we developed the Web 3.0 Governance Blueprint. The blueprint specifically covers application-focused Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs).

One council to rule them all, defeating voter fatigue and apathy with new governance primitives

“Since the beginning, the objective of the Maker Foundation has been to drive Maker towards increased decentralization. Weeks ago, the Maker Foundation announced its dissolution, which is targeted for the end of this year. As a last effort to empower the DAO, the Foundation, with the community’s help, set up the Core Unit Framework.
I was part of the BD team at the Foundation, and now I’m the Facilitator of the Growth Core Unit for the DAO. In this talk, I want to share my experience about how MakerDAO is evolving into decentralization.”

Index 2.0, Leadership, Governance and Decision making

@Holger / Phylo [IF] IndexCoop actually created and manages several crypto index products. They are most famous for the DeFi Pulse Index which is like a ETF that is comprised of 18 DeFi projects. The other famous one is the Metaverse Index. They also offer leveraged ETH& BTC ETFs. Afaik they can all be traded on DEXes. The DAO does the same in the crypto world what S&P/MSCI do in the traditional finance world

How can a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) be legally structured?

The decentralized structure and automated operations of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) raise complex questions about the determination of applicable law, corporate status, and external actions that cannot be adequately answered using classical theories. This article draws up the different current legal possibilities for structuring DAOs.

Multi-Party Signatures for Chrysalis

Deep_Sea “Bring_the_Shimmer”!!!11/25/2021@Λntonio Nardella [IF] – #49 for on chain storage, would a voter only need to have 1 Mi on the address? Then they can vote as much as they want and it’s recorded? Hey aren’t paying, they are just holding 1 Mi on an address right?

Quadratic Voting

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search

Jean — 11/26/2021
I was wondering if “Quadratic Voting” mechanism has been mentioned already by my dear Pioneers ? At Illuvium DAO, everyone seems very satisfied with this voting system ( I don’t understand it fully, but it basically is a an hybrid between token voting weight and 1/1 person/vote ).

Λntonio Nardella (@antonionardella)

  • token voting is one way of doing it, 1 person 1 vote is another way of doing it; 1 person + X amount of tokens for a higher commitment to the #DAO’s decisionmaking process

Quadratic voting is a collective decision-making procedure which involves individuals allocating votes to express the degree of their preferences, rather than just the direction of their preferences.[1] By doing so, quadratic voting seeks to address issues of voting paradox and majority rule. Quadratic voting works by allowing users to “pay” for additional votes on a given matter to express their support for given issues more strongly, resulting in voting outcomes that are aligned with the highest willingness to pay outcome, rather than just the outcome preferred by the majority regardless of the intensity of individual preferences. The payment for votes may be through either artificial or real currencies (e.g. with tokens distributed equally among voting members or with real money).[2][1] Quadratic voting is a variant of cumulative voting in the class of cardinal voting. It differs from cumulative voting by altering “the cost” and “the vote” relation from linear to quadratic.

Personal takeaways after three weeks of learning (go to tweet)

Please do not take this as a summary It is something more like what concepts hit me more than others.. There is so much more behind the concept of DAO and it totally feels overwhelming at times..

Make sure to take time to go through the materials and to build your own view to enable a discussion and growth between members here..
