Hello ReFi Nation 👋 In this community update we share an exciting new resource for those interested in the world of Impact DAOs + some calls to action to rally behind. Lets dive in.
Setting the Scene 🌱
Web3 is more than the mainstream narrative portrays it to be. For many builders, it’s not about building a better portfolio but building a better world. Nonetheless, mainstream perception is shaped by mainstream media. This book is an attempt to share a different side of story that remains largely untold and unheard, but is already beginning to shape the future.
The origins of this book can be traced to the founding of Ukraine DAO - an organization that seemingly appeared out of nowhere and raised $7 million from 3000 people on the internet thanks to the power of cryptocurrency. The initiative was entirely volunteer-run and made use of almost every web3 tool available to raise funds for Ukrainians suffering the effects of the Russian invasion. The speed at which the DAO was formed and the effectiveness of its execution demonstrated a new, practical way of achieving ambitious goals for the benefit of a large number of people. Individuals combining in cyberspace and around a shared purpose to solve societal-level problems.
We live in a time when the world is facing unprecedented global challenges that require radical new thinking and fundamental change. Web3-enabled collectives called 'ImpactDAOs' have the potential to become the norm in helping to solve problems in almost every order of magnitude.
