It’s Aloha Friday Frens! GM!
I’m constantly amazed by the rapid evolution of DAOs. The hard part right now is even understanding what is and isn’t a DAO. Essentially, an organization that allows governance through a decentralized and code based membership is what a DAO is. Or, in the NFT world – it’s a group of people who hold a collection or token together and make decisions based on that whether investment, story, or project. Or, in the US state of Wyoming, a DAO is essentially an LLC. It’s all pretty confusing. I’m a member of a growing number of DAOs – and in general, I’d say that a DAO is a membership club and that about sums it up – at this point. The rest is what the membership chooses to do with it. I’ve covered a bunch of the ones I’m in today in the DAO beat. Hope it’s helpful to you. Have a great weekend!

Great Projects I’m Not In or Following:
aka projects I missed and am salty about. There are too many – see the whole list at:
Missed in February: Generative Dungeons, Heroes,
Tokens & Staking
These are the tokens and crypto/defi projects that NFTs have led me to. Bizarre when you think about it. See the full list at here
These are projects that I wanted to believe in that simply seem like they are dead. I bought into many of these instead of the winning projects above. Take that as a warning. I sincerely hope that they resurrect – but when I put them here, it means that I’ve stopped believing and looking. I hope to someday have a section at the top called ‘Resurrections’ for when projects in the Graveyard manage to rise up again. As time goes on, I have no doubt this will be the biggest section of this newsletter and I will let it keep growing so that those who care to look can understand that the majority of projects fail and investors lose money. Pick wisely, my friends, and good luck!
