Best of Abridged #15
Exciting updates and interesting findings
Hello amazing humans!
First, we wanted to thank you all for your support. The very simple action of subscribing to our channel really means a lot. Thank you for your continued support, participation, and willingness to experiment as our trajectory develops.
The past two weeks have brought in a wild storm of sudden interest, community building, bug smashing, and a surprising early show of product market fit with Collab.Land.
We began integrating our alpha Telegram Collab.Land Bot into a number of new “DAO” communities!
Collab.Land launches the first professional networking social community: KarmaDAO! We were completely surprised by what a smashing success KarmaDAO has been, and are honored to support the budding new network pioneered by Andrew Lee.
Clarification of DAOs
We want to take a moment to clarify any confusion around the word “DAO.”
There’s a significant amount of flexibility with the way DAOs can be defined. I talked about it in my interview with the Layer1 podcast.
James Young and I further discuss decentralization as well as concentric circles of influence within decentralized networks in our latest Collab.Land podcast. You can also read the transcription of our conversation here.
New Token Communities
Here is list of the token communities that began using our tools this week:
These communities serve as amazing foundations for the kind of positive-sum communities and networks that we want Collab.Land to empower!
If you are interested in building a system for your community please do reach out!
