DHO / DAO & Organisational Tools for Commons' and Regions' organisations

DHO’s (Decentralised Holonic/Human Organisations)

DHO’s offer Members a structure to create new types of organisations and regional governance systems that provide:
  • contribution accounting for fair value distribution;
  • transparent, direct and evolvable governance tools (helping Members decide at scale);
  • the ability to more easily build the change while living the change; launch organisations within the SEEDS legal jurisdiction;
  • a regional governance system for Members to coordinate locally.


Full & basic overview of the Hypha DHO system and how groups can build new social systems with these tools.
Live Screenshots from Hypha's working DHO. The DHO is a home for your village, organisation and local community - A DHO is how we do!

Govern Membership

Explore existing members, what roles and badges they're holding, how to connect with them, and more.
View and accept (if you're holding the "enroller" badge) new members

Govern Roles

Roles being the infinite variety of ways members can contribute to a cause.
View and apply for Roles connected to an organisation
Members then govern which members hold those roles for a given period of time.
See what members are holding which roles and badges.
Govern Badges
Badges being the infinite variety of Rights, Perks, or otherwise that members have earned or are holding.
View and apply for badges.
Transparently govern a common treasury
Communities govern. Members make proposals to get paid out in a variety of tokens (payment tokens, community tokens, and governance tokens) and the remaining members use their governance process to decide whether to issue these tokens.
Organisations can use a "multiple signer" process (meaning n of n of those holding the 'treasurer badge' need to sign an action) to govern any assets that are on different blockchains or held in legacy institutions (like banks).
Securely and transparently update code
Using a "multiple signer" process in order to make updates to code.

The above screenshots are for the MVP running the last 2 years. For the future DHO see the prototype below that's being built and released soon. (If you'd like to help make it quicker, reach out to us! We're looking for more builders to move these tools out quicker. Plus, joining a DHO is a ton of fun :) )


Hypha, one of the organisations helping build SEEDS, is a DHO and as of March 2021 has 100+ global members, 3+ years worth of contributions, built several functional tools and has distributed millions worth of value more equitably than is traditionally possible (without astronomical lawyer fees), without ever having a bank account.
