DAO is an acronym for Decentralized Autonomous Organization. DAOs are not organizations with a traditional hierarchy like the traditional corporate structures where authority and empowerment flow downwards from investors/shareholders through a board of directors to management and eventually staff — DAOs typically do not have directors, managers, or employees at all. DAO governance structures are built on software, code and smart contracts that run on public decentralized blockchain platforms. To learn more about the technical definition construct of DAOs and how other DAOs have structured their governance models refer to Medium

Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in building a solution.
