DAO Model Law COALA Workshop
April 19, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The COALA DAO Model Law workshop was aimed at improving the COALA DAO Model Law, a legal framework tailored to the specific features and needs of DAOs. The agenda included an introductory session on the model law, followed by breakout groups and plenary discussion.
The breakout groups focused on two main areas: general provisions and formation, proof of existence, limited liability, asset subscription, members’ rights, internal organization, and disclosure. The second group focused on DAO specific areas, including contentious forks, restructuring and failure, and the application of general business organizational and taxation rules.
The plenary discussion included restitution of each group’s findings and a discussion of potential key recommendations and next steps for the adoption strategy. The workshop aimed to collect feedback on improving the COALA DAO Model Law and brainstorm ways to revise it.
Overall, the workshop was an opportunity for participants to engage in critical discussions and provide feedback on the legal framework tailored to the specific needs of DAOs. The event demonstrated the importance of providing legal certainty for DAOs and their participants and ensuring the legal framework can keep up with the development and evolution of DAOs.
