This week in DAOs - July 7, 2022
A roundup of the most exciting developments in the DAO space.
This week’s theme: Renew Your Passport
🇩🇪 Amongst the myriad reasons many of us on US soil are feeling edgy is a deep, nagging, envy. An elite group of DAO visionaries are currently in
b) impassioned debate
at a German PALACE on a mission to steer the imminent explosion of DAOs in ethical, accessible, and equitable directions. In between what one can only assume are moat swims and being hand-fed grapes, they are exploring DAO Legal Frameworks, Governance, Use Cases, Tooling and Security, and more. No need to feel excluded. Follow along via their newsletter and Twitter. 🏰
🇪🇸 1,600 km to the southwest, 2,000 makers, developers, and blockchain enthusiasts are at ETHBarcelona exploring how blockchain technology can help build a sustainable world full of human potential. Pro tip: the best bravas are at Bar Tomás in Sarrià.
🇨🇴 Making your passport itch? It’s not too late to plan your presence at Devcon Bogota.
🎙 In the latest episode of the DAO or Never podcast, Logos co-founders Geoffrey Arone and Isaac Patka dig into the details of a few contentious DAO proposals - Solend, MakerDAO, and ENS DAO - and share the good, the bad, and some key elements to understand before joining a DAO. They also discuss Utopia and Panvala Stamps, two exciting tools destined to improve and grow the DAO ecosystem. Utopia is improving onchain payments, while Panvala enables individuals to financially support their communities without opening their own wallets. TLDR: the DAO ecosystem is maturing, personalities are emerging, and it’s becoming more user-friendly too. Available on Apple and Spotify.
🧭 Yes, web3 and DAOs feel like the wild west – a new frontier for our exploration and development. Simultaneously, many amongst us believe that governance matters. (See aforementioned proof of what’s at stake in the recent spate of contentious proposals.) Validator Commons is one such cryptopolitical party that values governance and knowledge. Do you participate in DAO governance but often feel under-informed? Validator Commons might be your answer. If you’re lucky enough to be heading to Paris this month, the first in-person Validator workshop is taking place at EthCC.
🎶 It’s music to our ears anytime a web3-based project is embraced by a traditional institution. Congratulations to Songcamp’s Camp Chaos on your feature in Billboard, and for topping the chart of music NFTs..
“It shows us... that the technology of the future needs to be about ‘togetherness, not separation. Love, not suspicion. A common future, not isolation.’”
