The DAO stack
DAOstack provides the foundational tools for the creation, operation and governance of DAOs, internally and externally within a broader ecosystem. In a nutshell, it can be regarded as an analogue of WordPress for DAOs—it does for blockchains what WordPress has done for the web. The DAOstack ecosystem is made of a multitude of distinct but interoperable DAOs, interacting with one another in order to maximize the potential benefit of open and distributed collaboration.People can interact with these DAOs either directly, through the execution of blockchain transactions, or indirectly, by relying on a particular front-end to the underlying blockchain ecosystem. At the technical level, all DAOs are made of a series of smart contracts, deployed through Arc: a Solidity framework of governance allowing to create, configure, deploy and operate DAOs onto the Ethereum blockchain, possibly relying on 9 IPFS as an overlay network for data storage and retrieval.Alchemy is the collaborative DApp developed internally by DAOstack, enabling anyone to create a new agency or DAO and start collaborating with others in the DAOstack ecosystem.The ArcHives is a public set of registries, curated by the DAOstack community and serving its global ecosystem.
The Stack Economy
Tokens are being distributed to contributors of value to the network: builders, early adopters and maintainers of the DApp. On the other side, the usage of the DApp requires the spend of those same tokens. For example, Ether was distributed to founders and builders of the Ethereum blockchain, and is now being distributed to miners that maintain the network.Agencies, DAOs and DApps are all based on circular token economies. The general idea is that tokens are being distributed to contributors of value —for value that is contributed to the network. On the other hand, the same tokens gain benefit from the value created by the network.
Will there be a discount/bonus for the presale?
There will be a 10% bonus for the presale relative to the main token sale. DAOstack is committed to raising no more than the ETH equivalent of USD 30,000,000 from selling GEN — including advance and private purchases, the presale and the main token sale — as calculated according to the ETH-USD closing price on for the day prior to the presale.In addition, they are also planning to open a presale on May 1, 2018, at 4:00 am GMT.
