DAO Accelerationism Movement Aims to Advance Decentralized Organizations

The DAO Accelerationism movement, dedicated to activating the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) renaissance, has been gaining traction in the Web3 community. The initiative aims to build reliable decentralized systems by promoting the development of decentralized organizations to govern them.

Despite the majority of DAOs having failed so far, leading to temporary disillusionment among the community, DAO enthusiasts remain optimistic about the future of decentralized organizations. They believe that the current challenges, such as chaotic decentralization and lack of accountability, can be overcome.

To support the DAO movement, DAOG, a scenecoin, has been introduced. DAOG serves as a rallying cry for those who believe in the future of DAOs and rewards those advancing the DAO ecosystem. The main utility of DAOG is to send it to those contributing to the DAO ecosystem, such as tipping in telegram groups and upvoting at DAO-related events.

DAO Accelerationism has organized several events and projects to support the movement, including DAOcember, a virtual gathering of DAOists; the DAO Playbook, a crowdsourced guide; DAO Spring, an incubation/acceleration program; and the DAO Hack Month, a hackathon focused on DAO tooling.

The movement has gained traction quickly, with the DAOcember event featuring 70+ DAOists representing 80+ DAOs and related projects, attended by over 1,000 people. The event's knowledge was distilled into a 170-page DAO Playbook, and the first cohort of DAO acceleration/incubation has 20 DAO mentors. The initiative has also raised over $20k from sponsors, attendees, and DAO veterans.
