DAO Talks Podcast with Tim Delhaes

In DAO Talks, I get into the brains of the builders and makers of web3. We explore our multichain future, personal stories and how we are investing, experimenting and failing with startups on tokens and smart contracts.

Our guests of the over 30 episodes include Will Papper (Syndicate), Alex Salnikov (Rarible), Griff Green (TheDAO), Frederic Chesnais (Atari) and Will Ruddick (Grassroots Economics).

So, join me on a journey of discovery, as I chat to leaders, change makers and misfits about tech, life, the universe and everything.

About the Show

Decentralized autonomous organizations, or DAOs, are all the rage. We’re seeing explosive growth in this sector as people experiment with building companies on top of tokens and smart contracts. If you want to get a better understanding of why this is happening, listen to the people that work, build and invest in them: the members.

Join me on my personal journey of discovery, a series of talks with the Web3 builders about DAOs, Life and everything else.

Graham Spencer

How people share their availability and generate stronger commitments via token staking

Spencer is a product manager for DAOhaus, and a RaidGuild contributor. During his Web3 travels, he's noticed that there are usually 2 kinds of people in DAOs - those that dip their finger in multiple projects, and those who focus on one project only. Now, he's championing incentive based mechanisms that make people share their availability and generate stronger commitments via token staking. That, and he thinks that DAOs can be an answer to climate change.
