How does PDX DAO work?

PDX DAO functions as a permissionless coalition of DAOs. Anyone can create a DAO in the PDX DAO ecosystem and any DAO can join the ecosystem. Membership eligibility is a social construct emergent from the relationships of participating orgs. As we grow as a coalition, we will be building out a decentralized governance model with an eye toward an on-chain democratic confederation.

Ethereal Forest is currently engaging in research and community outreach to work toward this participatory cityDAO infrastructure.

Who joins PDX DAO?

Individuals and organizations interested in decentralized governance, community organizing, and doing cool shit with web3 technology: DAOs in the Portland Area, organizations interested in becoming DAOs, and individuals looking to join DAOs.

What's a DAO?

A decentralized autonomous organization, or DAO, describes a new way for humans to work together toward a shared vision without the need for centralized power. A DAO is typically defined by its smart contract—the blockchain-based protocol in place for shared management of the community treasury—and by the purpose, governance structure, and vibe of the community.
