DAOfest reporting thread

Starting a DAOfest reporting thread to share outcomes of DAOfest activities.


As a part of guerilla mission to bring DAOstack ecosystem to China, I coordinated together with 2 awesome DAO enthusiast from China (@Ruby and Jessie) to run a DAOfest in Shanghai.

The original idea was to run it off the back of a high profile crypto conference called PoV (PoVconf.com website went offline), but, China being China is never boring and so as a part of the recent increased policy activities related to Blockchain the event organizers were told by the authorities that they cannot hold this event. That also had implications directly and indirectly on our efforts as the original venue host we engaged with was also told they cannot host Blockchain related events.

The 3 lead organizers (Jessie, Ruby and Me) convened and felt we really must host the event and decided to change the theme a bit and made it into a summit like event whereby we invited top DAO pioneers to share their experiences and knowledge. That meant we had to cap the attendees number to below 100 because above that mark one needs to seek approval from the government to hold an event.

The event attracted entrepreneurs, academics, investors, developers and university students from leading universities (Shaghai Jiaotong, NYU Shanghai campus, Shenzhen University and Tsinghua (dubbed as China’s MIT).

Here are talk titles, speakers and links to the slides:
