Meet COG ⚙️ - The Impact DAOs Tech Stack
Impact DAOs operating framework and tools used
“What’s your tech stack?” was one of the questions we asked 12 mature Impact DAOs as part of the research for our book on Impact DAOs.
Based on the tools mentioned and from our deep understanding of the operating framework of DAOs, we introduce COG the Impact DAOs Tech Stack.
“A tech stack is a collection of technologies and tools that are used to build and run a software application or a project.” - ChatGPT
COG stands for communication, operations, and governance. Impact DAOs use various tools to manage each of these three core DAO functions. We have divided the tools based on these functions. The tooling data comes from our research on 12 mature Impact DAOs, which were operational for five months or more as of June 1, 2022. We’ve split the tools based on these functions. The tooling data is derived from our research of 12 mature Impact DAOs, which were operational for 5-months or more as of June 1, 2022.
Communication: Twitter, Telegram, Discord, Google Meet/Zoom, Mirror
