Today we are talking with Samantha Marin, author of the Quorum Newsletter and Core contributor in writing and comms at Aragon. Samantha recounts her discovery of DAOs as an early subscriber to Bankless and becoming an early contributor to Bankless DAO.  She describes her experience working in a traditional startup wanting equity in the project she was helping to build and how being remunerated for her work at BanklessDAO in $BANK, their governance token, was a monumental step in the direction of what she had been seeking. Of course, there are challenges with bounty pay too.  She recalls times when she attended meetings and participated in retrospectives that added value to the DAO but didn’t see any compensation for it. She consistently produced articles and other tangible work to earn a sustainable income. We compare the flexibility of bounty pay vs the stability of salary payment.  We also talk about the emergent structure in DAOs vs centralized organizations seeking to decentralize and the challenges in both. I hope you enjoy this conversation with Samantha. She is an incredibly gifted writer tackling many crucial topics both through her blog and at Aragon. Many of the topics we discussed have inspired me to be more thoughtful about how we structure decentralized organizations and build incentive mechanisms.
