Framework of DAOSquare community governance

The goal of DAOSquare is to eventually achieve full community-based governance, including the evolution of the infrastructure, the operation of VentureDAO, and the operation of the community. However, it requires a gradual process that relies primarily on the maturation of two conditions.

  • The system enters a healthy self-running state. Whether it’s the evolution of the infrastructure or the operation of VentureDAO, until it gets into a healthy self-running state, the effective and robust way to do this is to leave the build tasks to the experts. Once it gets into a healthy operational state, the community is better able to govern the product and mechanism based on real consensus, which is what most successful projects do, such as Gitcoin, ENS, Uniswap, and others.
  • Self-governance and automation of communities complete the break-in period. Before we can fully implement community-based governance, we need to gradually build community mechanisms and practice them a lot, which we call the break-in period.
