Futarchy and Zeitgeist DAOs

"Vote on values, but bet on beliefs"

  • Robin Hanson

Futarchy is a mode of governance. It acknowledges that democratic voting is a good way to govern, but tries to improve on it. The basic idea is that through the use of prediction markets as information aggregators, better policy decisions can be made.

It's easiest to illustrate this new concept through use of example. Let's consider first a one person organization and how an individual might use futarchy to govern their own personal decision, and from here we'll expand on how it works for organizations and how it will work for the Zeitgeist DAO and other DAOs powered by ZTG.
