Are DAOs really worth the fuss?

    Many regenerative projects see DAOs as a great alternative structure for both decision-making and ownership tied to blockchain interactions, but they also require a lot of bureaucratic work and are not generally useful for smaller organizations. What is your opinion?

    An article from Hypha, which is an org that sets up DAOs for other orgs. This highlights “10 ways that DAOs differ from traditional organizations”.

      Imo, DAOs don’t work for everyone/every type of being.

      It’s just another way to organize, record, share rewards, compensate etc.

      Village tribes also have their own hierarchies or value-system(s), jungle natives have their shamans, etc.

      I personally find it somewhat inefficient if there’s too many people involved, can be long-winded (like me, when I’m on a roll??? )… It’s like a dilution of power & expertise if not correctly setup.

      A startup would have a different co-ordination to another startup &/or mere community outings based on leisure, recreation, interest. So the DAO rules would be setup differently.

      Imo the people who make too much of a big deal about them have (internally felt, might be conscious or not) issues with ‘power balance’… Hence a need to try & experiment with different configurations.

      Someone(s) would need to start the DAO. Then it would need maintenance & momentum… Just like with anything else. It just depends who values what & rewards based on the criteria that suits the (initial/future) DAO members.

      How’s this different from being a startup co/founder & product-market fit? Idk. 😆🤷

    Also a strongly felt opinon (that no-one asked for but it just obtusely came to mind as ‘somewhat relevant to the topic of DAOs’):

    There’s no such thing as ‘flat hierarchy’. Stfu 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤌A hierarchy is a hierarchy of power, value, skill, survival priorities etc.

    An organization can have more direct & open lines of communication but WTF is a ‘flat hierarchy’!?!???????!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤷😆🍅🍅🍅
