Squad: Legal guild
Following the discussions around branding and legal entity, Legal guild is organizing an AMA for the community to address a variety of legal questions that arose.
After the backlash DAOStewards received from crypto Twitter, the founders of BanklessDAO proposed some legal and branding measures.
The proposal aims to:
- Clearly separate the HQ and DAO as brands.
- Establish guidance on the brand usage.
- Define the relationship between the DAO and the HQ.
- Propose creating a legal entity for the DAO so it can enter into brand agreement with the HQ.
The DAO regulatory framework is not easy to navigate and does not offer simple copy-paste solutions as it may be the case with traditional entities. While some jurisdictions might have worked well for some projects, that necessarily does not mean that is a good solution for others as well.
The Legal guild aims to avoid oversimplifying selection of the jurisdiction of the incorporation by providing the community with information vital to making such decisions.
The Legal guild is organizing an AMA to provide the community with basic education on the legal options and potential challenges for the bDAO in regards to the incorporation. The above mentioned forum post brought up Panama and the Caymans as potential jurisdictions, and the Legal guild wants to ensure that the community is aware of other options, potential risks associated, and has necessary information before making any final decisions on the legal entity.
Where: Community call on Discord
When: The usual Community call time - 4PM UTC
Date: February 9th
Speakers: LawPanda, Tertius, Teresa, TheThriller
The AMA to discuss the legal entity will be held during the Community call on Friday, February 9th (leave a bit extra time for attendance).
The Friday AMA will be strictly focused on the incorporation of the DAO and the nuances of having a legal entity.
In the forum post, two questions were brought up - the legal entity and branding. If you would like to have a separate AMA to discuss the branding issue, please let us know and we will organize it.
- Yes, I would like an AMA to discuss branding.
- No, I don’t think it’s necessary.
We would love to hear from you.
While we are preparing for the upcoming AMA, we would love to get your questions and thoughts here so we can discuss them during the AMA and provide you with the best answers possible.
Please use this post to share your thoughts, questions, and what you would like to be addressed in the legal entity AMA.
