DAOs and the advent of Web 3 coordination
In this week’s episode of Ventures, my guest Spencer Graham and I discuss all-things DAOs. We talk about the history of DAOs, specific case studies and types, a compelling no-code platform (https://DAOHaus.club), when and why to use DAOs, and the promising future of these organizations in the overall technology and innovation space.
Human coordination in a Web 3 world
It’s fascinating to think about starting new ventures in a Web 3-forward way, with a DAO at the core and decentralized ownership and governance built in from the start. While it’s tempting to think this is a niche fad or unrealistic idea, I’m 100% convinced that DAOs will provide a tremendous amount of value for humanity in the future that is very difficult to conceive of today.
Thankfully, this week’s episode with Spencer (https://twitter.com/spengrah) helps us understand the past, present, and future of DAOs and what is available for Web 3 product managers & entrepreneurs.
I’m especially impressed with https://daohaus.club/; this no-code platform allows anyone to setup and maintain DAOs with a few clicks. They have a rich set of docs to dive in and learn how to approach setting up your DAO and how you should think about scaling it. This is absolutely incredible; Web 3 has long suffered from a lack of simple UX for onboarding “the masses” and it’s nice to see the DAOHaus community tackle this problem head-on.
So, stay tuned. At the very least I’d like to spin up a DAO to do something, at the very least to test it out with friends. I’m going to (attempt to) join some DAOs on DAOHaus and give it a go to get a better understanding of how it all works in practice. I’ll keep you posted :)
Have a great rest of your week!
