The Aragon One commitment

Now that Aragon One is just a regular Aragon team, what differentiates us from other teams?

That is a very important question to answer. Starting Jan 17th, 2019, ANT holders will have the last say to which teams get funded.

For that reason, I wanted to make an effort to write down what makes Aragon One unique.

Tips and tricks to get started with Solidity

Hints and suggestions for beginners to get started on becoming a Solidity developer.

As the title of this article states, this is intended to give you hints and suggestions to get you started on becoming a Solidity developer. This isn't a tutorial or a how-to in itself. There is a lot of literature for that on the web, it wouldn't make sense to add yet another one. This is based on my own experience following the path (which just began) and it tries to help you avoid too much wandering to kickstart yours. For those of you who don't know, Solidity is a programming language used for Ethereum Smart Contracts.

The future of organizations

We believe that blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies are, at the core, a new way of organizing and unlocking human potential

On this piece, we are going to touch briefly on the origin of companies and then we are going to focus on DAOs. We believe distributed organizations offer a potential solution to these issues as well as a good guiding compass for the future of companies.

Trust Minimized Governance Tokens

With the recent Mainnet release of Aragon, it’s easier than ever to create an unstoppable organization and issue governance tokens.

In this post I’ll propose two potential mechanisms that would help minimize the trust required to use governance tokens by protecting the interests of minority and passive stakeholders without compromising self-sovereignty.

Enter the world of personal DAOs
