Community Collaboration

  • We believe in coordination, not speculation

  • The DAO is organized into Guilds, which are supportive spaces that act as the “first stop” for anyone looking to help out or share an idea
  • No secret sponsorship — any paid collaborations are fully transparent
  • We value collaboration over the "speed of one." Consensus is a feature, not a bug
  • Instead of oversight and control, we start from trust and communication. We work to empower groups and favor decentralized decision-making

  • We believe that community contributions deserve compensation, the level of which can grow with the DAO over time. See the Coordinape page for more info

  • We believe in iterative change. The best things are built over time, not perfect the first try
  • We encourage bold and original ideas
