Title: Collusion-Proof Decentralized Autonomous Organizations

Abstract: We develop a normative blueprint for an incentive-compatible and collusion-proof

decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). Incentive compatibility can be achieved

through staked tokens, a digital form of collateral that carries voting rights. Higher

stakes stimulate additional effort, but increase the risk of collusion. To be inherently

collusion proof, DAOs either require a high revenue or a sufficient degree of decentralization in combination with a large network size. If neither one of these conditions is

fulfilled, collusion can be precluded by confiscating the stake of malicious actors based

on stochastic voting and having voting power concentrated among a few key token
