What is DAO

DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) Chinese translation is a decentralized autonomous organization, which is an organizational structure developed based on blockchain technology. DAO does not have a centralized leader, but writes organizational rules into programs, which are executed by smart contracts, and are jointly governed by members of the organization.

One of the great advantages of DAO is that it may solve the problem of delegation and agency. That is, shareholders entrust the company's management rights to the company's senior executives, hoping to create the greatest benefits for shareholders; however, as long as the power is concentrated, there is a possibility of corruption.

In a DAO, participants are rewarded in the form of native tokens to help them work for a common goal and minimize the possibility of corruption. Many commentators believe that DAO may become a new type of enterprise in the future state.
