DAOstack is a blockchain-based operating system for DAOs that will be running on the Ethereum blockchain as opposed to creating its own blockchain. DAOstack enables the effective governance of self-organizing collectives. Its mission is to bring a landscape(base) of DAOs into life and to enable crowd cooperation around any goal. Imagine DAOstack as WordPress for DAOs. DAOstack is aiming to bootstrap and grow the DAOstack platform, as an operating system for DAOs and invest in an ecosystem of DAOs that will be using the DAOstack platform.
DAOstack has many use cases, but to name same:
Collaboration to Produce an Outcome-the goal is to develop products or services for a decentralized company. To name some-the decentralized version of a film project of 1000 artists. A climate initiative of 50 000 scientist and more.
Asset Management-management of assets and the allocation of the funds. Should one invest in a specific company, property etc. Examples would include decentralized versions of venture funds, pension funds, real estate investments collectives and more.
Curation-leveraging the wisdom of the crowd to rank the subjective quality of objects. F.e. decentralized versions of restaurants or hotel guides(much like TripAdvisor), articles and video feeds and more.
In laymen’s terms-if DAOstack project gets executed successfully, it will significantly disrupt the current model of decision making and use of collective intelligence allowing for better solutions at any scale.
DAOstack is built on several layers making it possible for both developers and DAO participants/creators.
Arc- the base layer of DAOstack. It’s a library of smart contracts implemented on the Ethereum blockchain, each of which represent functional elements that can be mixed, matched, and even modified to create the complete governance protocol for any given DAO
The Application Layer- most users of DAOstack will be individuals instead of developers/software engineers. These individuals will interact with DAOstack mainly by using the Dapps built on Arc and Arc.js.
Alchemy is the first application built on DAOstack and by using it-everyone will be able to create a DAO in a few clicks, create an ERC-20 token if desired, and invite others to participate in a hub of decision-making and talent-sharing.
