DAOs and Plural Property: How non-transferrable tokens can redefine our rights?
In our previous post, we dwelled upon Soul-bound tokens (SBTs) that can be attributed to a Soul (person or organization). By default, these tokens are non-transferrable, i.e. belong to one entity. Another group of assets - tokens, NFTs, artworks - can be sent to another account or Soul because their rights are easily transferable.
But what about property? Here, Web 3.0 provides more space to experiment with ownership and usage rights, for example:
  • Permit different levels of access to privately or publicly controlled resources
  • Create Data Cooperatives where SBTs grant data access to researchers.
  • Experiments with local currencies with rules that make them more valuable to hold and spend by Souls who live in a particular region or are part of a particular community.
  • Experiments in democratic mechanism design such as quadratic voting.
  • Experiments with social inclusion of immigrants and adolescents that keep gaining broader SBTs and influence as they are participating in the community’s life.
  • Experiments in lending where holders of an asset post a self-assessed price at which anyone else can buy the asset from them, and must periodically pay a tax.
