🎙 New Episode 🎙

Hi, it’s Dana. Writing to let you know about our latest podcast episode, available now on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

How can brands and creators organize existing communities with Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs)?

This week, our guest on Web 2.5 is Matt Voska, the Founder and COO of Origami, a platform that helps communities create and grow Decentralized Autonomous Organizations or DAOs. 

Origami assists its clients with the end-to-end services needed to set up and run a DAO, from the NFTs that serve as token-gated membership passes, to the software, documents, and voting protocols that determine how a DAO makes decisions, to the token issuances that can be used to reward DAO members.

Origami got started by helping alumni from Y Combinator come together to explore, advance, and invest in web3 startups though Orange DAO. Origami now helps other investment groups, gaming guilds, sports clubs, and more drive their communities forward with web3 technology.

In this episode, we will discuss what a DAO even is and why a group might want one, what Origami offers to its clients to streamline the DAO process, some IRL case studies, and Matt’s predictions for the future of DAOs in the market.

Here’s a clip from this week's show:
