DoD is a collective of individuals working on Decentralized Open Source. Our aim is to be an agnostic vehicle to drive adoption, educate newcomers (and veterans, why not?), and raise awareness on the challenges and benefits of decentralization and open source software.
The Department of Decentralization was born when our 2018 event, ETHBerlin got us to the conclusion that we needed to do something more than one event a year. There are multiple ways to support the community, and we want to be there.
Our first projects, after ETHBerlin 2018, are:
DoD is ran primarily from Berlin, but we encourage everyone to get in touch and run their local chapter. Currently, we are around 24 people, and work by making decisions on proposals that collective members build, and decide on them by rough consensus. However, our priority is to discover the right governance model for the collective. With this in mind, we are building a DAO, planned for Q2 2019, with the help of an Ethereum-based project.
