Description

From class-action lawsuits against crowdsourcing platforms to unilateral moves by other platforms to raise fees, neither workers nor requesters feel represented by current platforms. We seek to address this power imbalance and mitigate trust issues by introducing a representative democracy governance model within Daemo via the election of a Leadership Board. This community-elected Leadership Board (comprising two workers, two requesters, and three platform designers) is empowered to make policy decisions for the platform. Including all vested parties in platform governance provides an opportunity for idea transfer, transparent communication, and engagement
