About The Science DAO decentralized think tank

The Science DAO, launched by Yasha, is a decentralized autonomous organization built on the Ethereum blockchain that seeks to leverage the community-building strength of DAOs to create a strong and loyal group of creatives and brilliant minds.

InuYasha has launched three other projects to date — Guzzler, Cliff, and Pochi Inu — all of which have been tremendously successful and have raised millions of dollars. With a track record of 3-on-3, it is reasonable to expect a positive outcome from the launch of The Science DAO.

The Science DAO’s vision stems from the challenge that has long plagued the scientific community — the lack of community support for innovators for their disruptive inventions and emerging technologies. The project’s idea is that these like-minded people would fall under the same roof to support investors and propel scientific innovation by raising funds unanimously.

"At its core, The Science DAO is a strong community of geniuses, innovators, and brilliant minds that collaborates on groundbreaking inventions and innovation but without bureaucracy or sour politics." - Joey Poareo

The workings of The Science DAO are quite intuitive. To obtain funds for any innovation or project, the person would first have to submit their project to the DAO.

The project is then scrutinized by the members of the DAO, following which they vote on the same. Like most other DAOs, each governance token is considered to be 1 vote.

Post-approval of the project, the DAO creates a corresponding NFT that represents the fundraiser. All proceeds from the sales of these NFTs (minting and secondary market sales) go toward the development of the project.

There would certainly be a significant number of rejected projects, but even in such cases, the innovators can still raise funds and be incubated by individuals within the DAO.

One of the key reasons why blockchain enthusiasts are backing this DAO and are hyped about it is its target demographics. While the average Joe can get his hands on the DAOs governance token on the open market, the tokens would be primarily distributed to individuals in institutions, universities, and scientific funds.

Further, the tokenomics in their white paper specifies that no wallet can hold more than 1% of the total token supply, i.e., 1 billion of the total 100 billion tokens. This is a strong indicator as it is an attempt to keep whales at bay.
