Decentralized Collaboration, at scale

Blockchain enables new forms of human association that combine the scale and efficiency of free markets with the alignment and coherence of startups. The future of work involves networks self-organizing around shared goals and interests, and a new economy where cooperation is the winning strategy. This is a future of Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs).

The foundations of a thriving DAO ecosystem

Mesh networks of smart companies, jointly building an anti-rivalrous economy. Decentralized collaboration at scale.
The native user interface for the DAO stack, one of many interoperable collaborative applications.
Collaborative applications to enable crowd cooperation around any goal.
A friendly API layer that lets front-end developers easily build collaborative applications on top of Arc without being familiar with Solidity or the blockchain.
DAOstack’s shared registries that enhance the interoperability and network effect among collaborative DApps built on top of the stack.
A modular Solidity framework on the Ethereum blockchain that enables smart companies to be easily deployed, configured and upgraded. With an open library of governance modules and templates, Arc is like a Wordpress for DAOs.


Arc is an evolutionary framework for scalable governance

Arc supports an infinite number of governance elements. Its library of schemes and global constraints will evolve as the DAOstack ecosystem grows, with new templates and modules developed and added by the open-source development community and third parties.
Every DAO’s governance structure is made of small building blocks – governance modules, or elements – that can easily be added, combined, edited or removed. Modules do not need to be redeployed onto the blockchain, but rather only referred to, saving storage and operation costs and enhancing security.
The governance structure of each DAO can easily be upgraded to use new schemes and constraints, or different parameters of existing ones. More granularly, each DAO created through Arc comes with a particular set of rules, which by default include the rules to change the rules.

Eventually, everything connects

Usecase collaboration

Decentralized Collaboration

Imagine a new web of open collaboration in which individuals, organizations and communities can easily self-organize around shared goals and interests at any scale. It might be a film project with 1,000 artists, a news network with 10,000 journalists, or an open-source software project of 50,000 developers.

Usecase curation

Decentralized Curation

Allowing Inter-subjective networks of people to rank the quality of objective world subjects, from hotels, restaurants and shops - to websites, articles and news feeds. Imagine decentralized curation networks where the contributors are the owners, editors and users.

Usecase ownership

Decentralized Ownership

Effective mechanisms for large-scale collective decision-making enable crowds to co-own and co-manage assets and funds. Think of decentralized investment funds, insurance networks, or charitable organizations, where value is shared proportionally, and the interests of all stakeholders are closely aligned.

DAOstack runs on GEN

GEN is the native token of the DAOstack platform. Basic operations across the DAOstack ecosystem – such as promoting proposals – will require the spending or holding of GEN. GEN will be distributed to contributors of value through the DAOstack framework itself, incentivizing development, promotion and adoption
