In this episode of the podcast, we are going to take a look at the concept of the DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization). You will first (02:30) hear from Jimmy D, who is part of a group called the Uplift. The Uplift is an online world. It is a place where people gather together and build and it uses the game Minecraft as a game engine, but there's more going on here than just a multi-player Minecraft game. In fact, the Uplift is now governed as a decentralized autonomous organization. I won't steal any of Jimmy's thunder and explain why the Uplift chose to govern themselves as a DAO, but as you'll hear, his reasoning is very different from that of the second guest (46:30), Hannah Kirby, whose project,, is using a decentralized autonomous organization to manage vacation rental properties. Now, a DAO is not a magic wand. It doesn't eliminate all the problems that come from governing a large organization or a business, but DAOs do have some distinct advantages that we will hear about, starting my first guest, Jimmy D.
