An entity with no central leadership. Decisions are made from the bottom-up, governed by a community organized around a specific set of rules enforced on a blockchain. DAOs are internet-native organizations collectively owned and managed by their members. Wikipedia defines DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) as an organization represented by rules encoded as a transparent computer program, controlled by the organization members, and not influenced by a central government. As the rules are embedded into the code, no managers are needed, thus removing any bureaucracy or hierarchy hurdles. SEEDS utilizes a human-centric version of DAO known as DHO (Decentralized_Human_Organization).

DAC (Decentralized Autonomous Corporation)

A subgroup of DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) except that a DAC pays dividends. There is a concept of shares in a DAC which are purchaseable and tradeable in some fashion, and those shares potentially entitle their holders to continual receipts based on the DAC’s success.
