dao5 is an experimental cryptocurrency investment fund that
will later convert into a decentralized autonomous organization
Upon conversion, DAO5 tokens will be minted and issued to the fund’s
investment team, advisory board, and portfolio company founders. A
portion of the general partner’s assets will be migrated to an
on-chain treasury to be owned and governed by DAO5 tokenholders in
The primary goal of dao5 is to empower our portfolio founders to

will be determined entirely by DAO5 tokenholder governance.
As a DAO, we anticipate that dao5 will not operate with a

largest possible number of members (often succumbing to a tragedy
of the commons). We are not. It is envisioned that DAO5 governance
tokens will be mostly held by a community of culturally aligned
Contrarianism. Fostering open ideation is more important
than defining a fixed investment mandate or strategy. dao5 favors
radically different ideas and experiments in the crypto universe.
