DAOs an institutioal guide to decentralized governance - Arca Report:  DAOs - Institutional Guide to Decentralized GovernanceCorporate organizational structure has remained relatively unchanged since the development of the corporate form in the 17th century. This stagnation presents an opportunity to enhance and optimize aspects of collaboration. DAOs offer a novel way of attracting, organizing, governing, and incentivizing talent by integrating blockchain into the organizational framework.

What Are DAOs?

DAOs are blockchain-based, self-governing organizations that enable participants to work toward a common goal on a trustless network. DAO members can communicate, pool capital, vote, and develop projects, demonstrating the future of blockchain technology and coordinated decision-making.

DAOs start with an idea based on a defined goal, are organized using smart contracts, and stimulate action by granting access, voting rights, and ownership to contributors in exchange for tokens of the underlying project. Participants use governance tokens to vote on topics relevant to the DAO’s mission.

Innovations like DAOs challenge conventional ideas of centralization and inspire a generation of global citizens who prioritize autonomy, ownership, and democratization.


Societal change can evolve from cultural, political, economic, scientific, or technological forces. In the last decade—and especially recently—the global community has endured seismic waves in all categories. Civil unrest, wars, financial downturns, and an unrelenting pandemic have rattled confidence in traditional establishments, energizing the search for new possibilities.

Powered by blockchain and web 3.0, DAOs seek to modernize the formation of talent and capital as a means to efficient and democratic collaboration. This technological force can pave the way for positive systemic change.
