DAOrayaki – A Decentralized Media Platform focused on curation and creation

Who we are

DAOrayaki is a fully functional decentralized media platform for media creation, curation, reporting, and distribution by DAO. Through decentralized governance tools, community members, namely creators, readers, and funders, DAOrayaki manages the media content ecology.

DAOrayaki was established in February 2021, initiated by DAOONE core members and industry OGs, and supported by DoraFactory. Since its establishment, DAOrayaki has focused on exploring the ways of building a fully functional decentralized media (check links 1 & 2 below for details), which includes:

  1. Decentralized funding;
  1. Research prediction markets based on Futarchy mechanism;
  1. Decentralized editorial board;
  1. Decentralized content production & reviewing;
  1. Community governance, and
  1. Other media functions.

Our coverage scope reached more than a dozen fields, such as:

  1. DAOs;
  1. Governance;
  1. Web3 technologies;
  1. Public goods;
  1. Zero Knowledge;
  1. Layer1 & Layer 2;
  1. Space;
  1. Quantum computing, and
  1. Others.

We exceeded 1000+ bilingual articles in Chinese (mainly) and English, and 30+ live podcasts with various top league founders, builders, and researchers.

Our journey saw the support of different well known ecological grants, where we have been classified among top tier buidlers and content creators, such as:

  1. DoraFactory – Community QF Round-1 & Round-2;
  1. BNB Grant DAO – DAOs & dCommunities 2nd place;
  1. Gitcoin GR-11 – Top granted buidl in the Decentralized Governance (dGov) track;
  1. Hashkey Group – Hashkey buidlers support.

  • DAOrayaki is responsible for technologies and protocols developments and falls under the “GURU & Technology governauts” cells within DAOrayaki governance structure;
  • DAOrayaki DAO is considered as a celullar network of various governauts representing the essence of the overall community in which:
    • Infonauts: considered the main base of contributors;
    • Community governauts: dedicated to the community governors responsible for the overall governance;
    • Operation governauts: dedicated to the community governors (in addition to operators) responsible for the operations management;
    • Editorial board governauts: dedicated to the community governors (in addition to editors) responsible for content creation and curation (i.e., curations, research areas, integrity & fairness maintaining);
    • Treasury governauts: dedicated to the community governors (in addition to auditors) responsible for curations funding, bounties releasing, and auditing.

DAOrayaki DAO together combined with its cells (roles) holds and maintains the management of specific thematic content and gains specific rights and interests.

Token model

DAOrayaki deployed a non-monetary governance token for its community denoted under the ticker "YAKID" (DAOrayaki+ IDentity)

  • Non-tradable and non-transferable.
