DAOs x Web3 Social: a powerful combination for online communities
How online communities can leverage DAOs and web3 social media in tandem, Aragon DAO to go on mainnet next week, those interested in receiving delegation should take action
You can now find Aragon and Vocdoni on Lens! We believe DAOs and web3 social media is a powerful combination. DAOs provide tools to govern shared resources, make decisions, and manage permissions. Web3 social media provides tools for community discovery, member onboarding, and relationship building. When combined, communities have the building blocks they need to organize online.
The Aragon DAO will be live on mainnet next week, pending no hiccups! Get ready to wrap your tokens soon. We’ll share more details here and in the forum next week.
As the DAO will be deployed next week, it's time to start thinking about delegation. If you want to receive delegation, consider posting your qualifications and platform on the forum or communicating directly with ANT holders you'd like to represent.
Highlight of the week: DAOs and web3 social media: a powerful combination
Right now, online communities are often relegated to centralized services like Discord and Twitter. If one of those services makes changes, then that community could lose their platform and primary point of connection to each other.
And when it comes to managing shared resources, online communities can use DAOs, but there are still significant onboarding and user experience blockers.
But what if there was a way to build and manage communities simply? That’s where the DAOs x web3 social media combination comes in.
Let’s explore how Lens communities can use DAOs, and existing DAOs can start leveraging Lens. 👇
Lens is a decentralized social graph built on the blockchain. Lens is the underlying protocol, but anyone can build apps on top.
Imagine a world where you can take your social reputation with you to other social media apps. So, when you move to a new app, you don’t need to build an entirely new following there. You simply take the people you follow to a new place! That’s the problem Lens solves.
Web3 social media tools solve a critical pain point for DAOs, because DAOs are missing a community space for members that doesn’t have a single point of failure. For example, if a DAO’s Twitter account got shut down tomorrow, they wouldn’t be able to take their follower list to the next platform with them.
But it goes the other way, too. Lens communities that want to achieve a shared goal need a way to manage shared resources and make decisions. DAOs can solve that pain point by providing a place to do both of those actions transparently on the blockchain, and without a centralized point of failure.
The two tools, when working together, provide missing pieces for each other. DAOs provide tools to govern shared resources, make decisions, and manage organizational permissions. Web3 social media provides user-friendly tools for community discovery, member onboarding, and relationship building.
We see tons of potential for Aragon DAOs and Lens communities to overlap. Want to build a plugin on the new Aragon protocol that allows Lens communities to create Aragon DAOs? Join our developer chat in Discord and let us know!
And, follow Aragon and Vocdoni on Lens!
