Real life Examples

Seeds

SEEDS is a regenerative economic system originally built by Hypha using its tools.

SEEDS exists to help address several crises facing humanity today by building tools that help systemically regenerate our environment and communities by creating alternatives to the economic systems that are currently incentivizing and rewarding environmentally and socially destructive behaviors.

Hypha

Hypha set out in 2019 to build tools for creating new economic systems, such as SEEDS.

As a global team working on open-source tools, we needed to be decentralised ourselves and started building tools to coordinate, govern, and compensate our own organization members. Over the years we saw that these tools could provide a foundation to help any group seeking to coordinate

Cooperatives needs

Cooperatives rely on fluid and reliable collaboration between a number of decentralised organisations.

Not an easy task.

Businesses suffering from poor growth may gain a much needed boost by decentralizing decision making and budget usage, to give more autonomy and power to the teams that can truly drive transformational change.

Businesses who have a poor image due to their actions or lack of transparency, could look to DAO tools to help heal this through increased transparency and inclusiveness.

Start-ups who want to move to a ‘stakeholder structure’ rather than the traditional ‘shareholder structure’, will benefit greatly from these DAO tools.

Start-up needs

For start-ups, raising funding and setting up shareholder agreements are key but can be costly and time consuming. Onboarding new talent can be a slow contractual process, when speed is actually needed. Also potential investors will be more inclined to invest if there is more transparency in how the start-up is governed and funds are spent.

Hypha DAO enables:

  • Transparent organizational governance, through democratic voting on key new initiatives, hires and other operational decisions.
  • Easily set-up & maintain secure & decentralized treasury management & payroll.
  • Reduced start-up and new membership costs
  • No need for shareholder agreements - contributions are accounted for over time, based on real involvement.
  • Onboard new talent in minutes instead of via the usual time consuming employment contracts.

Communities Needs:

Communities coming together around a common cause will need to develop a democratic, reliable & transparent way to take decisions & govern. They will also need to find a secure and transparent way to manage their pooled resources.

Hypha DAO enables:

  • Transparent voting on key community decisions
  • Maintaining secure & decentralized treasury management
  • Reduced start-up and new membership costs
  • Transparent and equitable distribution of governance rights
  • Programmable and automated outcomes & incentives
  • Tokenising voice and equity, customizable governance and economic structures

Non-for-profit Needs:

For charities for example, providing transparency for those who generously give money is key to building a long term and trusting relationship.

Hypha DAO enables:

  • Transparent voting on key operational decisions including the allocation of funds to different charitable projects/needs
  • Maintaining secure & decentralized treasury management
  • Transparent and more-equitable distribution of governance rights
  • Programmable and automated outcomes & incentives to drive increased efficiencies
  • Tokenizing voice and equity, customizable governance and economic structures

Villages Needs:

Villages need the ability to efficiently organize their activities and manage their resources in a transparent, democratic and secure way. They might also want to ensure that the economic benefits of the services and products they generate remains within the local economy.

Hypha DAO enables:

  • Transparent & democratic voting on key operational decisions including the allocation of funds to different village projects
  • Maintaining secure & decentralized treasury management
  • A stable & low cost means of exchange (tokens)
