Webinar - Beyond DAOs and Foundations

An Experiment on Ethereum

Many previous Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) have been criticized for their uncertain legal status, liability and ability to manage real-world projects. With the aim to overcome these legal uncertainties, the Decentralized Autonomous Associations (DAAs) experiment of MME has uniquely merged technology and law to create and run organizations which are both, decentralized and legally compliant, to leverage transparent and democratic governance. The DAA model may be a basis particularly for non-profit projects with limited financial resources looking for a legal structure with a bottom-up decision-making process.

On May 28, 2020, Zurich-based MME lawyers Luka Müller-Studer and Thomas Linder have held a webinar together with blockchain author/investor William Mougayar (The Business Blockchain) and smart contract developer Sebastian Bürgel (HOPR Network) to discuss the legal and regulatory aspects surrounding the application of the Swiss Association model for blockchain projects and organizations. A recording of the webinar can be watched here:

A boiler-plate template for articles of association for a Swiss based DAA and the respective Ethereum-based Smart Contract System (SCS) published on Github can be accessed here.
