In this episode of The Unstoppable Podcast, we’re talking to Yury Lifshits. Yury is the CEO and Founder of Superdao, and he’s going to talk all about decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), why they’re so important, and what the future holds in this area.
Yury talks about finding his way into crypto from a background in mathematics and computer science, some of the projects he’s worked on, and the fundamentals of what DAOs are and how they work.
We talk about how DAOs have evolved and how off-chain involvement is becoming more important. Yury shares some of the benefits of DAOs that he’s encountered compared to traditional organizations, along with some of the downsides and challenges. We discuss decentralization — is it really an all-or-nothing concept?
We discuss who should join a DAO, what is typically expected of members and whether people are joining for reasons other than financial. Yury dives into the rise of digital assets and why they are becoming popular. Finally, we talk about the future of DAOs and what’s coming next.
