Future of Cryptography, Blockchain and DAOs
Three ways modern cryptography is changing today's world. - Artem Grigor, Research Engineer, Aragon Association
DAOs: what are they and how could they impact the future of democracy? - Alex Kampa, Head of Research, Aragon Association
Aragon is a suite of applications and services that enable new forms of global communities.
Communities can organize around capital assets, currency, or tokens, which will increase in value as more people hold and use that asset to participate in the community. By providing the tools for people to turn a community, cause, or even a meme into its own economy, we can unlock a long-tail of DAOs that are not limited just to protocols like Ethereum or Bitcoin.
Aragon not only provides basic financial tools like tokenization but can create reproducible and broadly applicable templates for defining the boundaries of a community and flowing value to contributors over the internet without traditional intermediaries.
The Aragon project was founded to disintermediate the creation and maintenance of organizations. We believe everyone should have equal access to governance and collaboration, no matter their age, gender, or race. The project was originally started by Luis Cuende and Jorge Izquierdo in November 2016.
