Item Type: MRP
Creators: Yuhas, Alyssa

This research explores how decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) and Cooperative (Co-op) models can learn from each other to impact the future of community and opportunity. The findings are grounded in human-centred design, systems thinking, foresight and innovation by comparing and contrasting the two models. The insights & accessible pathways uncovered will contribute to creating healthy communities and equitable opportunities as the internet evolves. Furthermore, the results may inspire and guide future community builders and member-centred creators within emergent online spaces. Both DAOs and Co-ops have similar ambitions and starting points, and each has strengths that can complement the other's weaknesses. The goal is to highlight that DAOs and Co-ops have more similarities than differences and can work together to create a more equitable society.
