Organizational Structure

DAOs emphasize decentralization in two important aspects – the underlying infrastructure as well as a more horizontal distribution of authority between their members. Firstly, DAOs run on decentralized infrastructures which are generally public and permissionless blockchains. This means that there is no gatekeeper and anyone can participate in DAOs. Secondly, the distribution of authority in DAOs is based on the notion that “members stand on equal footing, at least in terms of the availability to join and gain access to pertinent information related to how a given DAO operates.”
