2022: The Year of The DAO

Mar 12, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations) are having a moment. DAOs are a new way to finance projects, govern communities, and share value as a community. Instead of a top-down hierarchical structure, they use Web3 technology and rapidly evolving governance and incentive systems to distribute decision-making authority and financial rewards. DAOs have the potential to redefine the way we work, make group decisions, allocate resources, distribute wealth, and solve some of the world’s biggest problems.
Some DAOs are aiming to disrupt the record industry, real estate, media, etc. One DAO is even pooling together resources to purchase an NBA team. This panel will feature prominent thought leaders that are revolutionizing how we work together on the internet.
