Description DAO stands for Distributed Autonomous Organisation. In the DAO Space Tent (next to Open Code Town), we will be hosting sessions and workshops related to blockchain technologies, from(apart from bitcoin) - intro into blockchain-like datastructure, intro to cryptographic contracts for those who haven't yet looked into it, as well as hands on stuff:

- playing with js libraries to interact with contracts written in solidity - making our own configurable blockchains for experimenting - running blockchain nodes on rasp pi - DNS and blockchain (tinydns + tendermint chain) workshop and other things.

Planning notes We are sharing a tent with Building Utopia village.


DAO stands for distributed autonomous organisation. Simply put, as any organisation, DAO is a system of governance: set of rules by which it's elements of the system interact with each other and with other systems. Think of the rules governing the events happening in a society as contracts. Any social system has a number of rules expressed as law, customs, informal agreements. If it is democratic it means that every actor in the system can take part in changing the rules by which the system operates and change permissions assigned to others. At this village we will be looking at technology developed for the past two years to build DAO's DAO Space is atent to look into tech which might be handy when building such things. It is not only blockchains and cryptographic contracts, but also other tech which can be a part of DAO ecosystem - such as IPFS and FedWiki for example (these two we are planning to cover in depth).
