Decentralised autonomous organisations, also known as DAOs, are one of the groundbreaking innovations of blockchain technology. With the sudden rise of online collaboration due to the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for DAOs has recently surged across industries. Yet, many questions around their architecture, modes of governance, usability and implementation remain open, keeping DAOs from widespread adoption.

As a researcher, I am looking to answer these questions through engaged scholarship. Whether you are a fellow researcher, a practitioner, a user, a policymaker, a journalist or otherwise relating to the subject, I am looking forward to hearing from you. In the meantime, feel free to head over to DAObase, a curated digest of tech-agnostic product updates, analyses and opinion pieces on DAOs that I'm co-editing with Jack Laing.
