Music DAO
Diego Alvarez, Pietro Cortellini, and Emily Munchak invite readers to look at DAOs through the lens of the music industry. The authors investigated three DAOs: Audius, BitSong, and MODA DAO, which aim to disrupt their market. The study differentiates between DAOs driven primarily by economic incentives from those focused on social incentives and highlights five dimensions that characterize all DAOs: purpose, community, technology, tokens, and governance. The study focuses on DAOs from the music industry, but the authors offer generalized insights for other industries.
