Introduction to the Hashgraph DAO Working Group

Hashgraph DAO Working Group
3 min readNov 1, 2022

Decentralized Autonomous Organizations, or DAOs, are a type of organization with no central authority. We believe Hedera Hashgraph ushers in a new era of innovation for the broader DAO ecosystem.

We are currently running a survey to better understand the Hedera DAO ecosystem and needs of the community. You’ll also be able to register interest in joining the working group! Fill out our survey →

What we do

The Hashgraph DAO Working Group is a workgroup formed from community members who have joined together to produce standards and technical tools with an aim to assist others in building their own DAOs on Hedera Hashgraph.

Founded in July 2022, the working group meets biweekly and has formed subcommittees to facilitate the tasks at hand. There are currently 3 subcommittees — tech, operations, and marketing.

Our mission

Our collective focus is helping the DAO ecosystem on Hedera thrive through the creation of infrastructure, tooling, standards and educational material, and provide a productive forum for community collaboration.

Although many of the members are running (or intend to build) DAO’s, the goal of the working group is not specifically related to operations or active management of DAOs, but instead on developing and making available the infrastructural underpinnings to enable others in the community to launch their own DAOs.

Who we are

We are a professional group composed of projects and companies in the community that are invested in the development of DAO’s.

While most members are developing DAOs, it is not a requirement to join the workgroup. Members may contribute code, offer background information, knowledge and experience, or find other ways to contribute toward the work group’s mission.

How to get involved

We welcome the involvement of the community and will continue to make our progress transparent through tweets and media updates such as this article.

As a starting point, we have prepared a short survey to gauge the Hedera community’s interest and experience with DAO’s. Please fill it out!

📝 Fill out our survey & join

In order to keep the discussions focused, membership in the Hashgraph DAO Working Group is limited to participants who are actively involved in or building DAO’s on Hedera. Entry into the weekly meetings can be done by filling out a membership form and having the application reviewed by the existing members.

Our workgroup is open to anyone who wants to contribute meaningfully to the development of DAO’s and DAO tooling on the Hedera network.

Final words

The Hashgraph DAO Work Group has been created by the community, for the community. We welcome all contributors and are looking forward to paving the way for DAO’s and DAO communities on Hedera.

Please take some time to fill out the survey, it will help guide our initial direction as we develop material and tools to best serve the ecosystem going forward.
