Nice to meet you and thx for this start of a new conversation.
….No, as I see it, you are right. The Ambassadors program is not necessary for a DAO. It’s something else, although it might be that choise.com wants to sort of integrate both.
But, the point is, I feel, that choise.com doesn’t score many points on ‘community management’ in general, let alone -I fear- on organizing a DAO. (Also see my topic ‘don’t let the DAO die’)
That’s why I asked the head of the Community Managers (Anna) at telegram the question of choise.com has a true DAO-specialist:
Because, if we look at the DAO-roadmap:
Choise.com DAO is the most optimal structure based on CHO token, which serves as a governance body of our MetaFi ecosystem and makes the entrance to the DeFi and Web3 space more smooth.DAO aims at developing and maintaining an effective decision-making system that will bootstrap the creation of the top-notch MetaFi product for the best of all CHO token holders.
It’s quite an ambition. The DAO’s functions will be
governance of the ecosystem
a decision-making system that will bootstrap (= kickstart, initiate) the creation of products.
This ambition needs to be leaded by a true specialist.
The second ambition regarding the creation of products could be very interesting. The question is of course what products ‘sell best’. And maybe the wisdom of the crowd can best answer this question.
A recent publication adressed this issue as follows:
“Finally, because decision-making power is distributed across members of the DAO, dis- tributed and decentralized organizations like DAOs can benefit from “wisdom of the crowd”. The importance of crowd-based decision-making is increasingly relevant in various fields, ranging from the development of new products (Afuah and Tucci, 2012, Poetz and Schreier, 2012), the funding of technology-based start-ups (Mollick, 2014), and scientific research (Fran- zoni and Sauermann, 2014). It has been found that crowds can predict events very efficiently (e.g. U.S. Presidential elections) (Ray, 2006) and operate differently compared to experts (Mol- lick and Nanda, 2015). Thus, DAOs represent the natural evolution of crowd-based decision- making platforms.”
For this to all work you need a dedicated DAO community, with the individual members being the DAO’s and choise.com’s antennas in different parts of the world (preferably also in Africa), which needs good incentives etc etc.
That’s why I am wondering: has choise.com already found this DAO-specialist?
