    Leading cryptocurrencies fall over 10% Over the last seven days Ethereum (ETH) has fallen 13.3%, Binance Coin (BNB) 12.4%, and Bitcoin (BTC) by 10%.

    What are DAOs?

    How decentralized autonomous organizations communicate and function

    DAOs and how they communicate¬† A Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) is an organized community on the Internet that pools funds together in an effort to achieve a common goal. DAOs are often run using Ethereum (ETH) tokens, but they can have their own governance tokens specific to the project as well. The DAOs that tend to get news coverage are those that fail at their goal, or that get hacked and lose millions. It’s conventionally unfair to use that as a reason to disparage the decentralized organizations, as the same thing also happens to normal LLCs.¬† Discord is a platform that users can use to create servers for a variety…
