Vitalik Buterin discusses Credible Neutrality in the context of Incentivised Mechanisms of guiding human behavior. "... there is a very important principle that is at play, and one that is likely to become key to the discourse of how to build efficient, pro-freedom, fair and inclusive institutions that influence and govern different spheres of our lives. And that principle is this: when building mechanisms that ...Read More
The Common Stack team dicuss how blockchain technology can help satisfy Osrams 8 principles for managing a commons. Some examples of how their tech can help achieve this of course, but a rational discussion on how we can meet these principles when managing common public services. "Few people have contributed as much to our knowledge of the sustainable management of the commons as Elinor Ostrom. Winning the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economics for her work, Ostrom’s 8 principles for commons stewardship have set a standard for community management of shared resources. Although applying these rules at ...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
This is really fascinating! Anyone want to try creating an entry on this new directory for #governance patterns? https://medlabboulder.gitlab.io/democraticmediums/mediums/continuous_voting/ I opted for "continuous voting" rather than "conviction" because I think that term sets the idea apart a bit more from other methods. I would think of conviction voting, perhaps, as a variant of the broader continuous type. Does that seem right? @mZargham @abbey_titcomb
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
I don't even know what to make of this!! Apparently Komodo Devs had to act quickly and secretly as an attacker was starting to move funds. I'm sure those with funds saved will be happy, but it's a questionable move. How the core team react from now with their community will define Komodo in the medium to long term. People chasing funds always get messy... are they slick enough?
"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
"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.
