One of the benefits of Decentralised Autonomous Organisations is that, unlike classic organisations, they can operate without people. At all. Autonomously.
We are far from this yet, but first approximations are already obvious. And that's what we'll talk about briefly today.

Automated market makers are the story that helped develop DeFi: Uniswap, Pancake, QuickSwap - these and many other new generation DEX exchanges are powered by AMM.
But what does this have to do with DAO, and even without people?
First, many AMMs already work as part of DAO: it's just that they now work based on code written by humans, although they could work based on NeuroProject or, say, Copilot, of course, I'm exaggerating, but the vector is clear.
Secondly, AMM is actually a set of mathematical formulas and all that is needed to keep them alive is RAM, hard disk space and some executable environment. Therefore, as soon as storage like Filecoin, Storj, Swarm or even Chia develops and global distributed computers cease to be MVPs, we can expect both AMM and other entities to become almost fully autonomous.
Thirdly, AMM is just the beginning...
Standalone smart IoT devices
Do you like Shodan as much as I do? If you do, you know that the move from IPv4 to IPv6 was made for a reason: the IoT should gradually become much more autonomous than it is now when it comes to connecting to the Internet.
But that will only be the beginning. Most importantly, projects like Robonomics are already doing important things: they are trying to create a closed infrastructure of self-sponsored IoT devices, taking for granted that bitcoin was the first cash... for robots, and Ethereum helped automate the process.
So DAO drones doing different jobs is no "100 years from now or someday" fantasy, but the reality of today's day, which doesn't work all the way through just because infrastructure projects are always expensive and therefore time-consuming.
And in fact there will be one, but major, question left: no, not energy - solar panels and the like are already being scaled up on drones. What then? The fixing question: robots will start fixing robots. They used to say that about nano-bots, but in general the thesis applies to any.
Programmable neural networks
Generally speaking, this is one of the most promising areas for the involvement of objects within the economy of action. And today it is developing faster than any other. Examples:
- Sales of neural network output on Shutterstock;
- Various self-learning chatbots and voice assistants;
For autonomy in this case, the principles of the polymorphic worm should be used:
- The neural network must have a mechanism for checking the deployment environment;
- It must "understand" that the more replications on more sources, the better;
- And most importantly, it must be able to pay for storage space.
Nowadays unstoppable approach is implemented in wNFT (DAO ENVELOP), domains (ENS, etc.) and many others, but it can be applied to other entities, to neural networks first of all.
Maybe it scares you now a wondrous, new world, where you, a sentient being, suddenly become equal (in transactional reputation) to a smartphone, a car (like Tesla) or Siri, Alisa, etc. But this has to be accepted as a fact, because without them, much less IoT devices, we won't be able to move into the full-fledged world of the XR space.
Let me remind you that by XR I mean the synergy of the sums of different spaces: AR + VR + MR + RR + OR, where RR is real reality, and OR is other kinds of reality.
But for this we will need:
- Learn to work in an untrusted environment (blockchain is the first such tool, but it is no longer the only one);
- To accept that Global Distributed Computers are little dependent on the lower layers ("hardware", etc.);
- And finally, to develop the DAO model as the main economic actor of Web 3.0.
The world has long ceased to be black and white. The economy has only recently ceased to be the domain of human beings. Technology is not a panacea, but a tool. All this sounds both right and trite at the same time.
And yet behind this set of broad phrases lies something that eludes many: the DAO beyond man is the future that has arrived. And there is only one thing in our power: to take this mechanism of value creation, accumulation, transfer, and develop it within the Web 3.0 principles: decentralization, anonymity, openness.
That’s all and see you!
