Relevant experience includes biological research and investment due diligence.

Awareness

The purpose of this group is to spread awareness about HairDAO by as many means of communication as possible, including but not limited to social media, long-form content production, and investor relations. HairDAO is only as strong as its community and so this working group’s directive is to attract competent contributors and grow the community. Relevant skills include communication, public speaking, film production, writing, and other content creation.

Strategy & Governance

The purpose of this working group is to develop a cohesive strategy for the DAO and coordinate operations between all working groups and DAO members, utilizing various governance systems and best practices. Additionally, this working group is responsible for the resource allocation of the DAO, making recommendations on how to allocate its human (community) and financial (treasury) capital, as well as acting as the signers on the DAO’s treasury (a task for which a high degree of public reputation within the community is required).

Technical Development

The purpose of this working group is to create the back-end infrastructure while remaining legally compliant. Smart contract work will require in-depth knowledge of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and Solidity (EVM’s native programming language), while legal work will require in-depth knowledge of international incorporation and international financial transaction law.
