Problem Statement & Innovation

Addressing pain points in Open Source and DAOs

Open-source communities have a variety of problems when it comes to development and coordination. Challenges exist when holding contributors accountable and adhering to any sort of law. By implementing a DAO structure, core teams are able to assemble and create a structure that enables them to become the final decision-makers for a variety of responsibilities.

However, we need an environment to leverage developer experiences where developers can perform better while maintaining truly decentralized governance. These are issues that we specifically addressed with our R&D development portal. We aim to improve the developer experience while maintaining some control of the development and introduce mechanisms to incentivize proper behavior and developer empowerment. Importantly, we wanted this portal to scale as we do, and not limit our ability to grow or be agile.

Empowering developers and engineers

Empowering developers is crucial to scaling engineering. There are a variety of obstacles within centralized businesses that prohibit developers from owning their work and sharing it. Using a platform like ours, developers will have a more liberating experience that provides access to task lists with complete transparency.

DAO friendly

OpenR&D supports the usage of Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO); an entity structure with no central authority which is governed by the community members. Members of the DAO, who own community tokens, can vote on initiatives for the entity. The smart contracts and code governing the DAO's operations is publicly disclosed and available for everyone to see.
