Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) are the biggest innovation in how humans organize since the broad adoption of the Corporation (in the 1600s!). They've become a major force in Web3, using blockchain and smart contracts for decentralized decision-making. At our next FinTech PR Meetup we will be discussing DAOs in the context of FinTech. You will walk away with knowledge about:

  • How they provide more transparency, accountability, and inclusivity compared to centralized models by allowing direct participation in decision-making.
  • Their potential beyond finance, including in governance, supply chain, and creative industries.
  • Challenges to overcome include scalability, legal frameworks, and ensuring effective participation and governance for all stakeholders.

The presentation will start at 7pm sharp.

This will be a content-heavy presentation with networking, food, and refreshments. Seating is limited so reserve your ticket today.

After the presentation we will head to La Penúltima on Av. Juan Ponce de León for networking.

Please share this event with others who will not only benefit from the content but will get value in joining our ever-growing FinTech community in Puerto Rico.

If you're unable to attend in person, we will be broadcasting the event via Facebook Live:
