Recent interpretations of the Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAO) concept have lead to several implementation approaches, including notable ones by DAOhaus, Aragon, Colony, MolochDAO, MetaCartel, LAO, and others.
The DAA is a basis for non-profit projects with limited financial resources looking to use a bottom-up decision-making process.
This new variation is the concept of Decentralized Autonomous Associations that takes roots from the Swiss Association legal structure. The Swiss Association has lower startup hurdles than a Swiss Foundation. In the context of the DAA, the autonomous activity focuses on certain membership-related functions, which is a realistic scope that doesn’t risk slipping into the abstract during implementation.
