Digital cooperatives are the future

"Decentralised autonomous organisations (DAOs) are being described as the future of the firm. But we think we can do better by combining the benefits of a DAO model with the reassurances of a legal entity. We are linking the two concepts to form a digital cooperative."

Resource Distribution and Power Dynamics in Decentralized Networks

"The idealized vision of decentralized networking and socio-economic coordination triggered by the invention of Bitcoin continues to inspire entrepreneurs and drive innovation. Meanwhile, it is increasingly acknowledged within the broader crypto community that though the idealists are onto something, these emerging social systems are far from immune to problems and inequalities that have plagued human institutions historically."

A Comparison of Decentralized Exchange Designs

"Decentralized exchanges, or DEXs, have emerged last year as a solution to crypto’s bloody history of centralized exchange hacks. The main innovation is allowing users to trade directly from their wallets without having to trust an exchange to custody funds and implement robust security practices."

Decentralized Finance

"While we wait for the blockchain/crypto technology to scale to the point where it can be the foundation of mainstream consumer applications (games, social media, e-commerce, etc), there is a sector where scalability is a little less important and where blockchain/crypto is starting to show some real signs of life."

Why Progressive Decentralization is blockchain’s best hope

"Immutability is blockchain’s greatest strength and biggest barrier. Progressive decentralization could be the answer."

We need to own our data as a human right—and be compensated for it

"Personal data needs to be regarded as a human right, just as access to water is a human right. The ability for people to own and control their data should be considered a central human value. The data itself should be treated like property and people should be fairly compensated for it."

What comes after open source?

"This post explores the differences between software tools and services; how the stateful nature of software services led them to be closed; and posits how crypto networks can catalyze a new era of open services that reignite combinatorial innovation."

The Moloch DAO: Collapsing The Firm.

"In this article, I will detail thoughts around the Moloch DAO. It’s a new type of organisation (developed by Ameen Soleimani, Arjun Bhuptani, James Young, Layne Haber & Rahul Sethuram) that blurs and redefines the definition of a firm."

WHAT P2P MARKETS ARE BETTER DECENTRALIZED?

"Over the last 20 years, a lot of companies have built large online marketplaces to connect buyers and sellers. Amazon, eBay, Uber, and AirBnb typically come to mind as the most obvious examples. But there are many more."

Can’t be evil

"On the internet, we trust the “good guys.” The companies who store our data, who host our domains, who serve our content. Companies like Google, Cloudflare, and GoDaddy have the power to shut down websites or block specific users, but they don’t flex that muscle. Until they do."

dropgangs, or the future of darknet markets

"The Internet is full of commercial activity and it should come at no surprise that even illegal commercial activity is widespread as well. In this article we would like to describe the current developments - from where we came, where we are now, and where it might be going - when it comes to technologies used for digital black market activity."

Centralization vs Decentralization

"Decentralization is one of, if not the most, discussed features of the crypto tech stack. In a decentralized system, no single body controls the system. We have most certainly not reached the era fully decentralized systems, but that is what most of the world-class technologists working in the crypto sector are focused on getting us to and I believe we will get there in the not too distant future."
