  • Demand from different DAOs using it.

How GEN works

DAOstack’s idea is

  • a governance system and a prediction market in one.

Predicting is done by staking GEN.

For every proposal a small number of GEN stakers get shown proposals and predict if it will be passed or not. If they predict yes and the proposal gets passed they earn a reward.

The proposals with the most stakers predicting yes rise to the top in the governance system to be voted on.

Voting is done with reputation.

  • Reputation can be earned in different ways chosen by the DAO.
