FreeDAO is building decentralised tools for collaboration & freedom.



Freeos is a self governed cooperative income project, on the blockchain. Effectively, one can join the ecosystem, and can vote on economic decisions (inflation, fees, distribution, etc.) for the currency, thus enabling stewardship and creating a stable supplementary income.


Freeos' improvements to other experiments in crypto-UBIs is the ability to directly vote on the economy and to provide enough economic tools that intend to allow the users to trend the economy towards price stability—in terms of consensual purchasing power, not just pegged to fiat.


This democratic, crowd-driven quality is essential to providing a reliable, ongoing, stable crypto-income.  The uncanny power of how effective mass "wisdom-of-the-crowd" dynamics work is key to this concept.


FreeDAO exists to build collaborative tools that engender greater freedoms in human society. We exist to create digital "commons" that can be utlised by as many people as possible to enrich human life in ways that do not yet exist.
