The Dawn of the DAO PART 1
We lived through three generations of blockchain. We lost a lot, we learned a lot, but in the end, we gained a lot. 3rd gen blockchains gave us secure, energy-efficient, transparent and programmable organizations.
These are new kinds of organisations that better serve our purpose and our values. These are new kinds of organisations that allow us to coordinate our activities in new ways. What are these new organizations called? They are called DAOs. Decentralized Autonomous Organizations.
DAOs create open spaces for collaboration and coordination. It is no longer you against me, it is you AND me. Let’s achieve more, together.
The DAO Revolution PART 2
Every 20 years a paradigm shift is happening on the internet. 40 year ago Tim Berners Lee gave us the World Wide Web. We were in control of the web. 20 years ago the web became interactive. We experienced the commercial web. Now we are entering Web3 – the decentralized web. We are owning the web yet again. For the first time in history, we have the right tools, the right mindset and the right incentives to tackle the hard problems.
Into the New Age PART 3
Now what? We are leaving the industrial age behind. Entering the information age, the knowledge age, the sustainability age. Why do DAO’s actually matter in this new age? Because we need a new vessel and new tools to enter into this new territory and chart a new course.
Victor Hugo once said – “Nothing is more powerful that an idea whose time has come.” What he didn’t foresee was that we live in an age where millions of ideas can be realized. We need to get better at what we are trying to solve. The problems are getting infinitely more complex. The solutions can no longer be provided by a single centralized entity. “If we develop our collective imagination as if it is our core literacy, we will make it. Otherwise we will not.” —John Kellden Margaret Mead said – “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.”
We are here to attempt this journey. We invite you to join us. We are building the vessels, and we are getting them ready to leave the safe harbours and venture out into the sea. “If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.” – Antoine de Saint Exupéry
