Been working on this weird thing MetaGame. "A Massive Online Coordination Game" Think social media meets freelancing meet role playing games... ...Read More
With organisations such as Aragon beginning to experiment with Futarchy I thought it would be nice to revisit this excellent blog post about it by Vitalik Buterin.
Great read about "What the Decentralized Web Can Learn from Wikipedia". In fact a lot of the mechanism design for Relevant was inspired by Wikipedia! ...Read More
Varios funcionarios del gobierno de EE. UU. En altos cargos, incluido el Presidente, afirmaron recientemente que la criptomoneda no es una buena forma de pagar los bienes y servicios. Si bien algunos analistas dicen que esto detuvo una carrera alcista en 2019, ¿es cierto que estas palabras realmente tienen un ...Read More
Moving from CAD to CAG: baking data-driven complexity models into our decision-support systems will revolutionize our ability to understand the implications of policy choices in our complex social systems. The future of DAO governance is emerging.
"One way to think about various kinds of crypto projects is through the lens of contract theory. An axiom of this area of legal scholarship states: “all but the simplest contracts are incomplete”. That is, contractual arrangements cannot anticipate every possible outcome or set of actions, given complex and dynamic ...Read More
Conviction Voting offers a novel decision making process that funds proposals based on the aggregated preference of community members, expressed continuously. It sidesteps sybil attacks, provides collusion resistance, and mitigates many of the attack vectors of time-boxed voting mechanisms.
"The main principles of dynamic governance are known as consent, circles, and double-linking. In contrast to consensus, where everyone must agree on a decision, consent is reached when there are no remaining paramount objections. When a policy change is proposed, any objections are discussed, and if needed the proposal is A sociocratic organization is comprised of multiple tiered, overlapping circles. A circle is a semi-independent team of individuals responsible for governing its domain according to the entity’s principles. This is the horizontal element, where everyone in the circle is a full member with equal say. But there’s also a vertical ...Read More
A lot of people are making a big of deal out of this article yet it says so little about the named "friendly fork". First of all, it's not even decided if it's a state fork or a code fork which makes a whole lot of different behind the motivation of the fork. ...Read More
"Fixing meanings to evolving new concepts, theories, ideas (like Bitcoin) takes time and experience to comprehend and assimilate — by which descriptions and names are co-opted to social scale;.."
The "donuts" experiment on the ethtrader subreddit is super interesting to look at from a governance perspective. Original post here: https://www.reddit.com/r/ethtrader/comments/9khml6/introducing_community_points_polls_an_experiment Vitalik's take is interesting. I think the issue with this approach was the economic incentive and the community reputation were too closely tied to be a foundation for any metric/mechanism. ...Read More
iirc, this is more or less what happened during the DAO debacle, except the Eth counterattackers weren't so quick on the draw.
"Creating anything new in the world, especially something that runs against the grain, requires courageous and visionary individuals, tied to resourceful communities" I strongly believe in strong leadership and mentorship even in flat and "decentralized" organizations. I think we could use some more examples where organizations are representative yet lead very well.
"The dxDAO is an ambitious experiment, and one of the largest blockchain-based coordination endeavors to date since “The DAO.” The idea for the dxDAO initially arose from Gnosis’ design and development of a permissionless trading protocol, the DutchX, which has proved its viability as critical infrastructure providing a decentralized, on-chain -------> "Its lifelong trajectory will ultimately be decided by what community stakeholders deem to be the most legit pursuits!" ...Read More
