Plantoid & DAOs : Blockchain-based Life Forms

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Artist & researcher Primavera De Filippi has created a new species. It’s called Plantoid, and it’s difficult to describe in a single sentence. At first glance, it appears to be a mechanical sculpture, but taking a closer look it reveals itsself more as a mechanical creature.
Primavera tells the story of the Plantoid as a “distributed autonomous organisation” or DAO, which is a quasi-legal entity that exists as executable code on the blockchain. Every Plantoid implements its own DAO, allowing it to interact with the real world.
