DAOs are Orgs: Moving at the speed of trust in a trustless environment
DAOs are Orgs: Moving at the speed of trust in a trustless environment
In this conversation, we delve into what DAOs are and why the future lies in this framework. We also talk about the connection between ownership and decision making, striving for a ‘trustless’ infrastructure, why we might not see companies like Apple or Google ‘go DAO’ soon, the role of six-person teams — and why everyone working on DAOs are in essence collaborating on a creating a greater pie.

Solving the Biggest Issue in DAOs — Compensation
Solving the Biggest Issue in DAOs — Compensation
In today’s show Brandon speaks with Zach Anderson, a cofounder of both Converge and Coordinape – the latter of which is one of the best ways for DAOs to distribute earnings amongst a team of contributors. We discuss how Coordinape can help DAOs reflect on what they are prioritizing by looking at where allocations are going -- and how this can help facilitate difficult conversations when that compensation isn’t in line with the goals of the DAO.

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.

Decentralized payroll management for DAOs
Decentralized payroll management for DAOs
DAO’s don’t have top down management. There is no HR department. There are no contracts and no salary negotiations. How do you properly incentivize and reward contributors?

Giving feedback in Web3
Giving feedback in Web3
Web3 promises to bring individuals together to achieve shared goals and share the benefits. It’s a beautiful vision. But getting diverse groups of empowered people working together harmoniously to get things done is no small undertaking. It takes communication and effective feedback between contributors to get everyone aligned and working towards a common goal. We practice this daily in the social workspace of DAOs, but we still have much to learn. Along with developing pathways for decentralized compensation, Coordinape hopes to lead the. charge on working together more effectively. Already, Coordinape epochs create a regular moment to share feedback, bringing teammates together to reflect on where and how value was created. GIVE allocation in Coordinape is itself a concrete form of feedback, and the Notes feature supports qualitative sense-making. Over the coming months, Coordinape will be going on a sprint to further explore how to powerfully use the Coordinape epoch mechanism to strengthen your teams. Along with new features upgrades and mechanics around decentralized feedback, we will be providing tools and tips for the practice of working in DAOs.
