What is DAO? 5 exciting types of DAOs that overcome many challenges of legacy orgs to deliver value to members

In the world of blockchain, a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) is an organization that leverages smart contracts to run as a decentralized network. These organizations have been gaining attention due to their unique abilities to conduct business with great efficiency, transparency and accountability. In this post we’ll explore what makes a DAO different from other organizational forms like corporations or NGOs.

DAO as a form of users-only control and ownership

The DAO is a type of organization that is built on the idea of users-only control and ownership. In other words, it’s an autonomous organization with no single owner or administrator. Instead, its members can take action on issues affecting them directly by voting for proposals submitted by others in their community.

The DAO model has been around since the early days of cryptocurrencies—and has been used to create some pretty cool things like Ethereum itself! But in terms of managing organizations or projects, there are many challenges associated with running an organization without an actual founder or manager at its head; these include:

  • Limited governance options (e.g., shareholders)
  • Difficulty communicating between teams working across different time zones/locations

DAO as a hedge against cryptocurrency risk

DAOs are a way to help hedge against cryptocurrency risk, and they can also be used as a form of insurance.

In the case of crypto consulting services, it’s not unusual for prices to spike or crash abruptly—and if you’re dealing with large amounts of money (like in the case of an ICO run by a company like Ethereum), this is especially true. The value of your investment could fluctuate wildly within minutes or even hours—and that’s not good news if you’re trying to predict how much money will be coming into or out of your portfolio at any given time.

DAO models mitigate these risks by allowing investors who purchase tokens from an organization in return for their promised use on its platform when launched; holders receive dividends once those tokens have been used up through voting rights within their network—but those holding them don’t need to worry about losing their entire investment because there is no central authority managing them beyond what has already been stated in whitepapers and announcements made by founders/management teams involved with each project.”

DAO as an enabler of borderless collaboration

DAOs can enable borderless collaboration.

DAOs are the most exciting type of DAO because they allow people to collaborate across borders, time zones and cultures. They also enable people to collaborate in different industries. For example, if you want to build a new car company together with your friends around the world, you can do so by creating a DAO that represents your business interests and resources but only allows members who live near each other in real life (not just on-line).

DAO as an advanced system of governance, automating decision making and rewarding decisions

DAOs can be used to make decisions about how to govern a company. The DAO has the ability to automate decision making and reward decisions. This makes it an advanced system for governance, automating the process of making business decisions and rewarding those who make good ones.

The benefits of using a DAO as your company’s governing body are many:

  • It creates transparency in decision-making
  • It provides incentives for members’ participation in the organization’s decision-making process (this is often referred to as “vesting”)
  • It reduces risk because there is no centralized authority or controller entity controlling everything from one location (as opposed to traditional corporate management structures which may have multiple layers).

DAO as an enabler of cross-organizational co-creation, experimentation and organic value creation

DAOs are an important part of the future of organizations. They have many benefits, but also some challenges. As a form of user-only control and ownership, DAOs offer users the ability to participate in decision making at all levels—from top down and bottom up—and get rewarded for their efforts.

In addition, they can help you hedge against cryptocurrency risk by using them as collateral on your sidechain project or just holding onto them as an asset that will be used later when you need it (e.g., when funding becomes necessary). Another benefit is that they enable borderless collaboration between different organizations without having any restrictions on who can access data or how much access they have over time; this results in faster execution times as well as lower costs since there’s no need for costly internal bureaucracy systems like HR departments etc., which would otherwise slow down processes significantly if implemented correctly!


We believe that the future of DAOs is bright, and we are excited to see what organizations can do in this space.
