about the event
The DAOist Austin has been cancelled.
Hey DAOist, it's time for some sad news.
🚫 The DAOist Austin has been cancelled.
💰 Tickets will be refunded.
🗼 Work has started on The DAOist Paris.
The full post mortem:
After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel The DAOist Austin.
Through conversations with our long-time partners, speakers, and attendees, we already knew that most of our base was not going to attend Consensus 2023. We decided to try it anyway in the interest of connecting to new ecosystems and networks in which DAOs become ever more present and deeper governance considerations are needed.
But after all was said and done, we were not able to achieve traction compatible with the size of the event. It is now time to face the music: The event's cost exceeds both the potential revenue and the available capital to be lost.
We will refund everyone who bought tickets and give them free tickets to our next event 🎫 - We are bringing the magic sauce to Paris.
We want to say thank you to the amazing coalition of agents that supported us: Shouts to Matthew Lands, Joshua Lapidus, Jorge Cortes, Hami and Schelby at The Belmont, Mariano from the LuxEvents team, Brent Long and the Blocklive team, MetaCartel’s own Borrow Lucid, and the gracious patience of the folks at Mindzai Creative.
Also playing on our team were Samie Walker, Amber Urquhart, ATX DAO's members Sam Padila and Mason Lynaugh who extended their hand often throughout the process.
If you want a little more detail on how it all came to pass, check out twitter or video, but all the important things were said above.
Thank you for your patience, DAOist 🙏and see you in the next one.
How was it planned?
DAOs in 2023
DAOs have become a force to be reckoned with. Counting more than 11.000 active DAOs and over 1.7M active voters, DAOists are informed, engaged and early adopting innovators. It’s where companies often find their most aligned costumers, talent, investors and co-owners.
