Organization
The DAO will utilize Laboratory working groups which use a scientific experimentation-based approach to effectively carrying out the will of its Citizen Scientist voting members.
CureDAO is a laboratory consisting of many experiments.
It’s a global laboratory where the 7 billion human “natural experiments” revealing the effects of various factors on human health and happiness are conducted.
It’s an experiment to determine if a new model for clinical research using real-world data can more effectively reduce the global burden of chronic illness.
It’s an experiment to see if a new economic model called Collaborationism can reward the creation of open-source “public goods” and overcome the failures of Capitalism and Communism.
It’s an experiment to determine if a direct democracy can produce better results than traditional hierarchical command and control organizations.
Given the unprecedented nature of such a project, each working group will be constantly experimenting with new ways to execute this mission. We recognize the importance of using real-world evidence in the mission of improving human health. Execution within the working groups should take the same data-driven approach to execute their area of the overall mission.
Accordingly, the organization is composed of three primary components
  1. 1.
    Citizen Scientists - DAO data donors or token holders with voting rights
  2. 2.
    DAO Laboratories - Working groups consisting of a Lab Manager who helps Lab Technicians carry out the duties of their Laboratory in accordance with the will of the Citizen Scientists.
  3. 3.
    External Service Providers - Individuals or entities outside the DAO deemed necessary to carry out the will of the Citizen Scientists.

As an open and permissionless organization, anyone has the right to earn their Citizenship through the contribution of labor or resources. In exchange, the Citizen Scientist will receive CureDAO tokens granting full governance rights over the actions of DAO Lab Staff.
Citizens may participate in:
  1. 1.
    Governance Debate on Discourse
  2. 2.
    Token-Based Voting by staking their Governance Tokens on smart contracts

Lab Staff comprises the Laboratory working groups who carry out the will of the DAO. Citizens can apply to join Laboratories based on their experience or expertise. Laboratories may elect Lab Managers, who are responsible for coordinating between Laboratory Technicians. Laboratories may decide to create incentives for their Citizen Scientists in a variety of forms, including paying them for services or creating bounties.
In cases where Lab Staff are paid, Citizens may choose to compensate them with any of the following:
  1. 1.
    DAO Governance Tokens
  2. 2.
    Ethereum
  3. 3.
    Fiat Currency
  4. 4.
    Other Incentives

The initial Laboratories will be created to carry out the following primary functions:
  • Governance Lab - Changes governance and how proposals are created and deployed. Handles technical aspects of DAO token creation and distribution. Develops the DAO’s smart contracts.
  • Legal Lab - Handles legal matters regarding business structure, health data, liability issues, and business contracts.
  • Coordination Lab - Handles operational matters such as human resources, compensation, project management, onboarding. Provides resources for Lab Staff.
