The Future of Work will happen through DAOs

What’s a good comparable for .eth names?
  1. Idea 1 — People are happier when their work has meaning and can associate with peers who share similar beliefs and values. DAOs provide opportunities to pick and choose your work communities. DAOs are open and transparent, making it easy to do your due diligence before joining one. It’s tough to truly know a corporation runs until you join it.
  2. Idea 2— DAOs aren’t bound to geographical constraints or corporate policies. You can work on a DAO from anywhere in the world. You can also work on many DAOs from anywhere.
  3. Idea 3— Contributing 5 hours per week of meaningful work will likely create more value than contributing 40 hours of non-meaningful work (e.g., one of the most meaningful contributors to Wikipedia does it as a side gig (here))
  4. Idea 4— DAOs can scale much quicker than corporations. There exists a lot of administrative overhead to onboard new talent to a corporation (e.g., register employee with government, set up payroll, etc.) — that overhead doesn’t exist in DAOs.
  5. Idea 5— There is an oversupply of talent looking to join DAOs. There is an undersupply of talent available for almost every type of corporation. Corporations don’t have enough of a pipeline of talent, while DAOs are trying to figure out how to onboard the large available talent pools effectively.
