Service of Process & DAO – The New Blockchain World – Part 1

Service of Process & DAO – The new Blockchain world.

How do you do a service of process when there is no governing body

As technology advances at breakneck speeds, some traditional legal processes require re-evaluation.    A DAO is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, typically supported on a blockchain platform.  This article helps define the DAO and presents the challenges and recent court rulings surrounding how Service of Process works when serving a DAO.

What is a DAO?

Blockchain and smart contracts are two examples of governance technologies that, using self-enforcing code, can increase transparency while lowering bureaucracy.  In addition, they can assist businesses in minimizing current principal-agent issues and the associated moral risks.  For example, distributed network tokens allow participants in an agreement or contract to conduct business with no third parties (i.e., escrow officers, banks, etc.).   Blockchain and software rules determine when contractual obligations are met and paid.

The principal-agent dilemma, a persistent problem in governance caused by centralized autonomous organizations, is addressed by DAOs.  Consequently, the question is: What is a DAO, and how is it different from a conventional organization?

DAO Meaning in Crypto?

An open-source, blockchain-based program that acts as a capital fund and lacks a traditional management structure or board of directors is known as a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).

It offers users a built-in method for managing its code collectively.

A DAO is a self-organizing, decentralized organization, to put it simply.  The DAO, while utilizing the Ethereum network, is completely decentralized and unaffiliated with any one nation-state.

A Decentralized Autonomous Organization Example

DAOs are still in the early stages of development, but many already exist.  Decentralized autonomous organizations include, among others:

  • A cryptocurrency that its users manage
  • A program that controls a stablecoin is called MakerDAO.
  • A platform for prediction markets is Augur.

How does a decentralized autonomous organization work

Use Cases for Decentralized Autonomous Organization

Any institution or individual from anywhere in the world can join a charity, and the charity can choose how to use any donations it receives.

You could organize a team of independent contractors who pool their funds to pay for things like office space and software subscriptions.

You can create a grant and venture fund that pools investment funds and decides which businesses to support through voting.  The amount reimbursed may now be divided among the DAO’s participants.
