      There are some weird parser/formatting issues in this article. If a paragraph seems off, skip to the next one! It's repeated.

      It’s interesting how much is not new in DAOs.

      First, it’s hard to untangle the appeal of a DAO from the lure of price speculation. (Maybe you just hope your DAO’s token goes “to the moon.”)

      A real issue. Both the appeal and scepticism of blockchain currencies easily transfer to DAOs.

      An implicit risk of DAO work, says Dupont, is a “deep financialization of the everyday.”

      I’m connecting this to the recent "Wallgreens installs screens on glass fridge doors get ad revenue” article. It seems like the ad economy made us realize that every second of our attention has monetary value. A major risk indeed for wellness.

      DAOs are the future of freelance work.

        As the article concludes, of creative digital work maybe. A really good read!

        This Monday I heard a talk from kleoverse's CEO here in Helsinki. It seemed vague what they were doing with bounties inside DAOs, but this article gave it some very helpful context.
