Thanks for starting the thread @rzurrer… feels like there is plenty of fresh tilled soil to introduce a new Rev Gen DAO. I also consider DAOs as inevitably being a new form of regulated ICO (DAICO) that will begin popping up in the next 6-12 months.
We’re in th experimentation phase, and I imagine there will be many derivatives of DAO-based organizations and collaborations.
I’m pro DAOs with specified purpose. Recreating the ambition of the original DAO at a smaller, specified scale seems to provide the possibility of coming to a legal decision more quickly in the near term. This is where the APPDAO concept came from: https://link.medium.com/sUmEzUd5vY (this is just a proposed narrative, it isnt fully fleshed and can take many alternate routes).
Our team at Abridged is working with a number of others to evaluate how quickly we could launch one of these for some of the side products being built with fully parsed legal arguments/structures using a US LLC wrapper. Low estimate ~1.5 mo.
At the same time, there should definitely be an investigation into a DAO more broadly focused on becoming a VC to potentially invest into these smaller DAOs that are managing and coordinating revenue flow and budgeting for remote, international teams building specific projects. Further, defining legal wrappers in other jurisdictions (Berlin, Brussels, Malta, Singapore, Lisbon…) will be critical to providing more robust opportunities for DAO communities to form.
Excited to continue this discussion. May be worth the MCDAO community to consider funding some of the work needing to be accomplished (legal/technical) to spur on new experiments/designs. Can’t wait to break ground
