Introduction

  • what, why, relevance?

Methodology

what are the formal criteria to include (and to exclude) a certain case related to blockchain governance?

Structure of the report:

  • Purpose of DAO

  • Objects to be governed (e.g. repo, funds distribution)

  • Used mechanics (on-chain, off-chain)

  • History & key events

Use Grins way to describe governance?

Summary

Make statements about what blockchain governance is and how it realtes to onchain and offchain governance. E.g. On-chain governance – ability to change the protocol based on the on-chain events. No need in 100% on-chain, combination with off-chain is ok as well.
