Title: DAO Lego Index (working title, there’s a DAO Jones joke here somewhere)
Created: 5th May 2021
DAOs are the future of human organization. We see how well this works for the Coop, Moloch, MetaCartel, the list goes on. This is just the beginning, and soon I suspect we’ll see more and more new DAOs, and new styles of DAOs (think the recent announcements of Bankless DAO and BairesDAO).
Watching conversations in the Coop forum and Discord, other DAOs, crypto twitter, and other places online tells me that sometimes DAOs are difficult to build and manage. It’s a new problem looking for new solutions.
We are also early birds. You’re smart, here and willing to get your hands a little dirty. As human organization starts to structure itself more into DAOs, there will be less of us to help build it. Most people aren’t going to be as willing as many of us to get stuck in deep. Fortunately, there are many teams building a lot of things that make life easier for DAOs, from creation, setting up the structure, managing the treasury, governance, and so forth.
I want to invest in the machines that make the machines that make the new face of human organization, and think being able to build such a product would make things easier to invest in the sector.
This could be achieved by a similar setup to DPI: market cap weighted, 6+ months old, above a certain height, etc. I have products in mind, but I’d prefer a full community take. I’m certain I’ve missed something, or some of these aren’t viable, but I’m mostly gauging community sentiment here, and details can come later.
Some I feel certainly need consideration:
- GNO - Gnosis
- ANT - Aragon
- BUIDL - dfohub
- NXM - Nexus Mutual
- HAUS - DAOhaus
- HBT - Habitat
- EGT - Elasticdao
- INDEX - stares at future SYI
Here’s a list of more ideas of projects: https://twitter.com/kevinknielsen/status/1384581254570516481
What I’m looking for in this forum post is to gauge sentiment to the idea of a DAO lego index, and if this looks like something people want, I’m all ears to anyone willing to help properly spec this out.
Gwei for your thoughts?
