Course Title
Decentralizing Decentralization

Course Description

How do we decentralize the organizations that are decentralizing our currencies, apps, and, well, organizations? Whether it’s a blockchain like Ethereum, your startup, or an organization like this conference, decisions have to be made and funds have to be managed somehow, preferably fairly and without single-point-of-failure. In this session we will collect all the various solutions that exist and summarize them, and combine them into a working solution.

You will leave this session knowing about funding and voting. For funding, we will specifically look at how it pertains to token engineering, augmented bonding curves, DAICOs, inflation funding, and mechanism design. For voting, we will discuss traditional, plutarchy, futarchy, quadratic voting, forking, Arrow’s Impossibility Theorem, and continuous voting.
