ImpactDAO Book [digital edition]
The community around the book GreenPilled - How Crypto Can Regenerate the World (available at https://greenpill.party) has envisioned that web3 has the potential to regenerate the world. With the GreenPilled book, we have established a digestible source of a priori knowledge (theoretical knowledge) of how we might use a transparent, immutable, global, and programmable financial system with $2 trillion worth of capital to regenerate the world. This capital could build a digital commons, create flourishing digital democracies, and support both local & global public goods. A priori knowledge is great, but what has been missing from the conversation thus far is empirical knowledge (knowledge obtained from observation) of how crypto can regenerate the world. That’s where this book, and the projects within it, comes in.
ImpactDAOs are any web3 project that is using crypto to create positive externalities for the world. This book is a cartography project, designed to map these ImpactDAOs & the territory between them. There are dozens of examples of successful ImpactDAOs in the world today, & hundreds more inchoate ImpactDAOs. We articulate their value propositions, techniques, and provide a map to help members of the web3 ecosystem who are working on regenerative crypto to find each other.
If the GreenPilled book is theory, this book is its complement - this book is about action. Theory without action is impotence. Action without theory is directionless. But together, theory and action present a powerful schelling point for web3 regenerating the world. We invite you to learn about the world of ImpactDAOs, the foundational atomic building block of an emergent, regenerative, peer to peer, pluralistic civilizational scale infrastructure for funding public goods. Public goods are good!
