Decentralised Autonomous Organisations (DAOs): the future of business? – Wellington

DAOs have the potential to create global operating systems for collective intelligence. This can enable new companies, funds and markets to make fast and innovative decisions at scale. DAOs can have sophisticated governance, reputation, token management and voting systems encoded as immutable blockchain smart contracts.

Since the now infamous ‘The DAO’ collapsed in 2016 there has been a huge amount of work creating blockchain based infrastructure software layers that will allow more secure/robust DAOs to be created. Two of the dominant global systems for allowing anybody to create DAOs are DAOStack and Aragon.

This presentation and Q&A will be given by Kate Beecroft (Barcelona-based community lead for DAOStack and co-founder of GreaterThan) and Mark Pascall (Executive Director of BlockchainNZ and co-founder of BlockchainLabs.NZ).

I will include an introduction to DAOs (inc 101, history, technology evolution and current state of the ecosystem) and a closer look at the how the DAOStack ecosystem is evolving and the opportunities for New Zealanders to get involved.

This event is brought to you by BlockchainNZ. It will be held at the Victoria University School of Design.
