DAO role in governing[edit]

Some think that the application in governance of cities and states will be a growth area. Therefore, I would like to suggest a section for growth or potential applications with activities underway.--Wikipietime (talk) 15:04, 7 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]

IF there are sources for it, then sure! Got anything to refer us to? ☆ Bri (talk) 17:13, 7 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]

"DeFi" needed[edit]

Section here, or new article, needed on "DeFi" (Decentralized Finance), now frequently cropping up in crypto news. I lack the knowledge to do it. Errantius (talk) 22:22, 18 January 2020 (UTC).[reply]

For example. Errantius (talk) 10:42, 2 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Decentralized finance already exists, and DiFi redirects to it.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  23:37, 13 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

sourcing problems[edit]

Hi, @Geysirhead:, @Enhancement321:, @Manhuichi:, @Midhav Ravindran: and @David Gerard: noting that much of this on this page is not acceptable. We are only using high quality sources on crypto articles, that means wsj, nyt, bloomberg, fortune, wired, etc. We dont use any cryptozines, softpedia, blogs, etc. Much of this content is not notable and thus WP:UNDUE. Thanks! Jtbobwaysf (talk) 09:40, 6 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I cleaned up a little, others please have a look. @Retimuko: please add to your patrol as well. Thanks Jtbobwaysf (talk) 09:55, 6 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Oxford English?[edit]

Since this article was overwhelmingly written with DMY dates not American MDY dates (and I normalized the few exceptions I found, mostly ISO dates), but was using -ize spellings, I've tagged this as {{Use DMY dates}} and {{Use Oxford English}}, since the latter also uses -ize, and I don't see anything in the material that is an Americanism that would be incompatible with Oxford spelling. Another option would be to declare it American English and change the date format to MDY. But outside of US military topics, it doesn't make much sense to have an American-English article that's in DMY.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  23:36, 13 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Shortened list of DAOs[edit]

I cut down on the List of DAOs, since it seemed to be a possible hotbed for promotion of non-notable orgs (and was a current hotbed of external links). I also added a comment to not add to the list unless the organization already has a Wikipedia article or there is independent, reliable sourcing of it's status as a DAO (not sure if new editors will know that "independent, reliable" means "high quality sourcing", though).

I'm open to any suggestions / improvement or if anyone sees any changes that could be made. - Whisperjanes (talk) 17:14, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

ENS links don't go to anything that describes ENS[edit]

Wasn't sure how to do this correctly but the ENS link in the list of DAOs links to the disambiguation page for ENS but that page doesn't actually list the Ethereum Name System anywhere. Not sure how to mark it or if it was correct to move the link but wanted to make the powers that be aware of the issue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Daidoji (talkcontribs) 15:32, 22 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Distributed autonomous organizations?[edit]

Should this page also reference the term "Distributed autonomous organizations"? I have seen that term used and wondering if it's a synonym that's in use. Not an expert, so I am asking here. MRubenzahl (talk) 13:14, 17 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Though it uses a different "d" word, it is referring to the same thing. There is a lot of variation within how DAOs are implemented, but that change in wording does not yet describe any different types of DAO. "Decentralized" is far more common than "distributed", so I am unsure if it is warranted to mention it, but it's not a harm either way. Mewnst (talk) 22:21, 17 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
