Introduce AladdinDAO

Scaling DeFi

DeFi has proven to the world that crypto is here to stay.

Ever since the DeFi summer in 2020, billions of dollars have entered DeFi, harvesting yields, deploying complex strategies, and exploring the boundaries of truly permissionless finance.

But one problem remains unsolved: hacks and rugpulls have consistently rekt many.

Compounding the chaos is the frequent noises from the speculators, influencers, and even the richest person on the planet, Elon Musk, who may often quotes false information.

What if you could be part of a community where DeFi experts vet the good farms from the bad?

Introducing AladdinDAO…


For the past two months, our focus has been community bootstrapping.

A few accomplishments we are proud of:

  1. Gathered a loyal group of core contributors
  2. Received over 1000+ Boule Candidates Applications
  3. Launched two successful community calls including Boule Candidates intros and panel discussions
  4. Published proposal on our governance platform + healthy debates
  5. And most importantly, lots of love from the community

Since we are at the final stage of running Boule competition and finalizing Boule candidates, it’s time to bring Liquidity Mining on the table.

Two Stages of Liquidity Mining

Duration: 200,000 blocks

We are psyched to announce that AladdinDAO is launching an official Hall on Decentraland. Like many leading crypto community, we felt that a virtual space would allow community members, Boule Council, Boule Plus, and our friends & family to hang out, get to know each other, and better build the AladdinDAO.

Specifically, we have the following agenda in mind:

  1. The Hall will become AladdinDAO’s official “museum” in…


The idea to launch Boule Plus didn’t come out of a whim.

In fact, we didn’t plan to launch Boule Plus until we saw a flood of applicants to join the original Boule Council.

Then it struck us how important it is to involve as many community members as possible in our DeFi experiment, rather than dogmatically adhering to the original design.

That’s not to say that our original vision of “Farm with Big Brains” has changed. Instead, we added Boule Plus to invite more community members to contribute and share AladdinDAO’s success.

Investment DAO

In [PART 1], we dove deep into the definition of DAO and teased apart the difference between a DAO and a DO.

This [PART 2]article aims to dig even deeper into Investment DAOs and argues why Investments should be DAOed. We believe that Investments benefit the most from a DAO structure, and are poised to disrupt the existing Asset Management landscape.

This new structure is particularly enticing in the Investment space, because it frees talented people from TradOrg’s boundaries and allows them to connect and evolve together.

Crypto Investment isn’t a lonely game

But that’s not why Investment should be DAOed. The biggest reason that DAO…


A DAO is not an investment thesis. It is a crypto-native org structure designed for the new digital economy.

The Nature of the Firm

When the crypto community rushes to worship the DAO, many forget why people form organizations in the first place. To understand DAOs, we need to understand the origin of firms.

As Ronald Coase pointed out in “The Nature of the Firm,” companies emerge because they are better equipped to deal with the transaction costs inherent in production and exchanges than individuals are.

In plain English, companies exist because they offer quality products and services at competitive cost structures. This economic explanation…


In the early days of AladdinDAO, we designed a nomination mechanism to fulfill the vision that asset management should be decentralized.

Every “pleb” should have the “privilege” to “Farm with Big Brains.”

Our initial game plan is that a handful of you would be interested and apply to join the Boule. We will run a community selection and elect the 30 winner.

How wrong were we. When we saw that a whopping 1600 of you applied, we realized that the old way of Boule Council management would fail to engage every community member.

Here is our dilemma: How do we…


TLDR

  • 1,642 members participated in AladdinDAO’s 3rd Quiz
  • 1,062 scored at least 60 points and will receive airdrop
  • Claim your rewards at https://airdrop.aladdin.club/.

Congrats to those who passed our 3rd Quiz. Many of you demonstrated deep knowledge of our token mechanism.

The results of AladdinDAO Quiz 3 qualifiers can be found in the table.

We have also detected a few participants using multiple accounts. This violates our community rule. In order to protect the interests of the AladdinDAO community, we have excluded these accounts.
