For a long time, I wanted to create some overview on the existent case studies of orgs/networks with on-chain governance. E.g. the list of first DAOs and summary of how different approaches work. Here’re my early drafts on this: https://wiki.dgov.foundation/research/protocol-governance-case-studies
By on-chain governance, I mean the ability to change the protocol based on the on-chain events. But I don’t mean that everything should be managed through the chain, meaning combination with off-chain is ok as well.
Would like to get your feedback on
- How relevant can be such work? Should it be more broad (e.g. include Bitcoin as first DAO, as some believe), or more specific to the tools / needs (e.g. on-chain fund distribution case studies)?
- How does the current list represents the on-chain governance (what should be added/edited)
- What information can be helpful? E.g. purpose of DAO, used mechanics (e.g. funds distribution), brief history etc.
- Who could help with writing this?
