CELEBRATING FORKING WITHIN DAOs
Using forking (rather than voting) to achieve growth and diversity in DAOs
The DAO discourse has been dominated by discussions of voice.
What are the best governance structures to invite participation? How do DAOs build soft and hard consensus? How can individuals make their opinions heard?
These are useful and important questions. These “voice” based rights enable members to change the system from within. But focusing solely on these rights is a bias we’ve inherited from corporations or countries - where living within the system is the only economic or political choice.
We’re here because “governance tokens” were a concept invented by lawyers to steer clear of securities law. It wasn’t meant to be a descriptive meme for how DAOs should make decisions — allowing everyone to vote on everything. This puts too many cooks in the kitchen. Of course, One way to solve this is via delegation. But a better option in our opinion is via exit.
