Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs)

Decentralised Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) are blockchain-based organizations that function independently and without a central authority through predefined smart contracts. They provide for open and democratic decision-making processes because they are guided by participant consensus.

DAOs promote a new paradigm of decentralized and community-driven governance by allowing organizations to manage their resources, tasks, and organizational tasks without the use of traditional hierarchical structures.
