How to DAO: Setting up a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (On-Demand)

During the first hour, Justin Holbein will provide an overview of smart contracts and the other technical issues involved in DAOs, the definition of DAOs, mechanics of operations, and some examples of successful DAOs.

In the second hour James Holbein, Esq. will focus on the legal status of DAOs, especially in light of the first state law in Wyoming permitting their formation. He will also look at the federal regulatory mess and try to demonstrate that much of the ferment about DAOs can be calmed by analogizing them to cooperative associations, permitting a more permissive approach than thus far has been taken. We will end with an overview of what we see on the horizon in 2022, especially in light of the March 9, 2022, Executive Order on Digital Assets.
