Communities organized around a shared set of rules enforced on the blockchain through a smart contract.

DAOs give us structured ways to collect, invest, and build together.

Inherently transparent, every aspect of the org is public.

The most infamous DAO, The DAO, was a decentralized VC fund. Eventually raised $150M but had $60M hacked, leaving a negative impression/skepticism around DAOs for a while.

Stable employment is possible through DAOs, Empty Set Dollar DAO is paying a $180k salary to their community manager

All members can still be anonymous and built reputations attached to their pseudonym rather than real identity, hopefully helps to create a more even playing field
