Four web3 founders will discuss their perspective on the way of running a DAO, each of them runs a different web3 organization and their opinions might vary. On this panel we would try to get into some level of consensus on why DAOs.
Should you gamify community contributions?
In web3, there's a lot of excitement around bringing member contributions on-chain or into verifiable credentials. With more data, it is natural to measure contributions and consider incentivizing behaviors to optimize them. Before diving in head first, let's consider prior designs and experiments so we can make new mistakes instead of repeating old ones.
Entrepreneurship and Intraprenurship in DAOs
DAOs suffers from 3 key systemic challenges in R&D: 1) fragmentation: each DAO does their own research in isolation from others 2) depth: research is often done in small, startup-like teams lacking resources and diversity 3) focus: DAOs are innovating on both product and organisation, leading to often being spread too thin.
This comes largely from legacy web2 practiced around lack of collaboration in R&D and lonely entrepreneurial journeys.
Truly empowering DAO models could turn this around through a new approach to Intraprenurship.
The Commons are Coming
The concept of commons has been around as long as humans have. They have all but disappeared until the resurgence of interest following the Nobel Prize in Economics being awarded to Elinor Ostrom in 2009 for her “groundbreaking research demonstrating that ordinary people are capable of creating rules and institutions that allow for the sustainable and equitable management of shared resources.” At Commons Stack, we are building the tools and protocols to enable communities to govern based on commons principles and launch their own token economy to support their purpose or public good.
Biggest Opportunity Areas in the DAOverse
Should you DAO it? -> How to activate incoming community members? -> Why are DAOs moving from a completely decentralized setup to a concentrated/partial decentralized setup -> The problems with a plethora of DAO tools and what exactly is the minimum needed tool-stack? -> Empowering DAO Operation -> Grant Management -> The way forward (what to expect in the DAO verse over the next few months?).
The Pharma Blockchain Project: Reinventing Democracy
AI is changing the world; what is the impact on DAO governance?
AI is driving cars, writing meeting minutes, and answering questions in natural human language. It basically does everything we humans do daily, but can it also decide on our behalf?
Incentivizing Growth and Community Building through Grants Programs
• Building community • Designing your DAO • Grants Programs as a mean to grow • DAO to DAO collaboration
Minnows v. whales: Quadratic Governance to the rescue
An illustration of why token weighted voting is dangerous for the DAO and how quadratic voting is a viable mechanism to level the playing field. This presentation will give the participant a clear understanding of quadratic voting, how it can be applied to single choice voting, the risks and benefits of using the method, and what it can do for the DAO and voter engagement.

DAOs have a hard time making operational decisions and getting work done without falling into the trap of consensus paralysis or informal hierarchies. By embracing some of the self-organisation principles you can create a DAO that combines best of both worlds. 1) A decentralised owner and compensation structure as well as 2) a functional and decentralised way to execute effectively.
In this blog post I have laid out some of the nuances: https://nestr.io/blog/daos-dont-work
StableNode is pioneering WEB3 governance as the leading professional delegate across major DeFi protocols (Maker, Aave, 1inch and more). We use a combination of hands-on participation, extensive DeFi experience, and thorough research to create a positive impact for the DAOs we work with.
Governance Analytics Suite for DAO contributions -
At its core, Karma tracks and analyzes governance contributions (e.g. voting, proposing & commenting), providing DAOs with visibility and the tools to take data-driven actions (e.g. allocation of rewards, voting power and permissions). The goal: increase informed engagement, accountability, and ultimately DAO governance automation.
Purpose: Uniting all contributors to the New Earth in a regenerative network, facilitating the implementation of a community-type civilization.
