This week in DAOs - Aug 18, 2022
A roundup of the most exciting developments in the DAO space.
🎙 In the latest episode of DAO or Never we speak with Ooli de Villèle and Donatus Schaumburg Lippe, co-organizers of DAO Palace, and go deep into the event’s origins, outcomes, and future. Hear an inside take on the ethos and aspirations behind DAOs and the role culture heritage sites can play as a foundation for the future. If you value community, this one’s for you. Available on Apple and Spotify.
📆 It’s still on: the Gnosis Chain testnet demonstrated a successful merge; the mainnet merge is set for September.
☑️ Audit, please: DAO frameworks depend on smart contract audits to protect user funds and ensure contracts behave as expected. Getting on audit schedules is hard. Now you can buy your way to the front of the line from ConsenSys Diligence.
🗳 First they came for…: Moloch DAO has a proposal in the works to send 120 ETH to support the legal defense of Tornado.Cash. Now is the time to shape web3.
🖼 Cuckoo for C0C0: Pool your ETH with C0C0DAO to support CC0 NFTs (Creative Commons Zero = all ip relinquished). Incubated by OG NFT enthusiasts from The LAO, Flamingo DAO, and Neon DAO, this initiative isn’t their first rodeo.
Global entry: congrats to .bit on your $13M raise in support of your mission to build cross-chain decentralized identities for web3 (think: chain-agnostic ENS) and beyond. Bit aims to solve the needs of millions of people worldwide lacking a broadly accepted form of legal identity.
🚌 IRL crypto education: the gm bus is on a mission to educate, inform, and evolve the crypto narrative by visiting cities, communities, and events around the world.
🎙 A podcast for DeFi: Operation Decentralization by DXdao launches this week.
