We are nobody, but driven by curiosity, pride and love for Taiwan.
We are democratic, but driven by do-ocracy.
We are locally activated, but connected and impactful globally.
We are decentralized, but driven by leaders, builders, and dreamers .
We are forward, but build upon 10 years of open source success.
We are da0, here to supercharge g0v.

da0 coordinate is the base layer of da0 that builds an infrastructure of social relationships, resource connections and consensus. The channel is currently led by @Noah Yeh , we research and experiment with how decentralized organizations might work best.

This venture studio focuses on demonstrating how Hypercerts and retroactive funding might work in the real world. Hypercerts are impact certificates developed by Protocol Labs. We're spearheading a series of experiments in Taiwan hoping to showcase success.

The G00D Class
This class marks the debut of Hypercerts as a funding mechanism for future eduction systems. It’s a collaborative project between da0, g0v sch00l, Dentsu, and National Taiwan University, titled “Decentralized Applications Design and Practice”, with course code NTU 111-2 NM5371, led by Professor Ju Chun Ko. The class is curated by da0, g0v sch00l, and Dentsu, with the objective of inspiring students with the innovative technologies and possibilities of the public goods and commons space.
A grassroot soulbound token experiment led by @Noah Yeh and his team to recognize and incentivize contributions in g0v. The goal is to create tools for public goods project to find momentum.

What keeps me awake at night isn’t how to keep the momentum going. We know it would go up and down despite our best efforts. This is just something we need to learn to live with. What I do care about is how da0 might be able to say “Thank You!” in a better way, to reward meaningful contributions, and to keep things going even when the momentum is at a low point.
Taiwan is an unique place, marginalized yet right between global super powers, minimized yet excelled in many unexpected ways. Taiwanese of this generation seek purpose, some through efforts such as g0v, others through baseball players they call the pride of Taiwan. Meaning, I believe, is yet to be found. Individuals on this island are eager to find our place and our contributions to the world.。
The answer is no, DAO has not existed that long. “The DAO” was created by a few members of the Ethereum foundation in 2016, the project didn’t survive, but the name did.
DAOs might not have been around that long, but the concept of decentralization has been mentioned many times in history, the word “décentralisation” first appeared in French literature in 1820s, later also mentioned in the French Revolution, the history lesson can be found on Wikipedia.
da0’s very first event was a success. The goal of this event was to introduce da0 to Taiwan’s web3 and civic communities, as well as inspire the imagination of how web3 and commons can intersect. The da0 team spent 12 Friday night meetings organizing this event, the event had over 50 attendees on a rainy day with mostly organic outreach, many positive feedbacks were given directly to contributors, but of course there’s always room to improve.

零時道 x 公共財 (da0 x Commons)
近來公共財漸漸成為各大企業商業規劃著眼的項目之一，da0 零時道為 g0v 零時政府下的專案小組，其目的在於將 Web3 與公共財 (Commons and Public Goods) 整合運用，期望以去中心化之核心理念，將區塊鏈相關技術如平方募資法、平方投票法等解決方案，融入公共財應用場景並創造永續的融資模式。本場座談邀請到 da0 零時道創辦人葉向林 Noah 擔任主持人，及 Protocol Labs 之研究團隊負責人與技術長和 gov 零時政府揪松團輪值主席與談，一同推敲 Web3 與公共財之協作共創機會。
