Founding Team

Who created The Black DAO?

The Black DAO was inspired by Olympus DAO and Yearn Finance. It was conceptualized and built by a distributed pseudo-anonymous team. Combined our team has a total of 20 years of experience in Cryptocurrency and Communal Development Economics spanning from mining to modeling systems. 20+ years in Software Programing, 15 years in Corporate Finance, 10 years in Marketing. The team has elected to remain anonymous for several reasons. Though, while our identities will remain anonymous, we will be working closely with crypto compliance company Assure ( to KYC the team and eventually representatives and audit the security of the project.

Assure Partnership includes:

KYC NFTs - Privately identifying clients with a thorough KYC process. After KYC approval we mint an NFT (non-fungible token) on the blockchain as a certificate of verification.

Who runs The Black DAO?

No one. The Black DAO is DAO-governed. In addition to our core contributing team, all decisions are formed by community members on the forum and made by BLKD holders through snapshot voting.
