The Divine DAO with Tracheopteryx | Layer Zero
The Divine DAO with Tracheopteryx | Layer Zero
Tracheopteryx is the founder of Coordinape, the intersubjective coordination tool. Coordinape allows DAO contributors to collectively reward each other as an alternate—and more elegant—means of compensating work & value. Trach has been on a podcast circuit lately, cruising through big cerebral topics orbiting DAO coordination and biomimicry.—addressing technology and civilization from a biological perspective is underrated. How do we shift from a ‘command & control’ approach to ‘sense & respond’? How can we take lessons from nature and plug them into novel systems powered by technology?

Why DAOs?
Why DAOs?
DAOs are the next step in collective development, slated to transform life and work as we know it. We are now at the very beginning, and what we’ve seen is only the edge of the shadow. Our second DISRUPTORS guest, Tracheopteryx, gives a new definition for DAOs, laying out their anatomy, and contextualizing their value. Being a core contributor at Yearn and Coordinape, Tracheopteryx sits right at the frontier of the most decentralized DAOs on the planet. What are DAOs? How do they work? Why do they matter? Tune in to find out.

DAOs Explained
DAOs Explained
Historically, humans have organized themselves in a variety of ways: from tribes and councils, to LLCs, and C-Corps. But these forms of organization tend to be centralized in nature, and feel slightly out of place today. With so much of our personal and professional lives taking place online now, the real question is: what does an internet-native way of organizing ourselves and our resources look like? DAOs, or Decentralized Autonomous Organizations, are one compelling answer. In this episode, we unpack that. We explore the fundamentals: what DAOs are, how they function, and what they entail for the future of work.

Tracheopteryx: Yearn, Coordinape, and pseudonymity
Tracheopteryx: Yearn, Coordinape, and pseudonymity
Tracheopteryx has been a key leader in the Yearn Finance community since its legendary genesis event. In this conversation, we talk about key moments in Yearn's evolution with an eye towards takeaways that might be useful for other projects. We talk about the introduction of the multisig; the mint — a complex governance proposal where the community eventually chose to dilute themselves in order to reward core contributors; and constrained delegation - the governance framework that Trach helped design and which is operating in Yearn today. The other big area we get into is Coordinape. Coordinape is a protocol for decentralizing compensation. It was designed and incubated inside of Yearn, and is now being built as an independent project. Towards the end of the conversation, Trach tells the story behind his name and shares a perspective on becoming pseudonymous that has stayed with me since.
