Aragon is a project building flexible and secure tools for creating, managing, and scaling DAOs, allowing everyone to experiment with governance at the speed of software.
A Decentralized Autonomous Organization is an organization run with smart contracts on a public blockchain.
Decentralized = Built on top of trustless, permissionless technology.
Autonomous = Self-governing with smart contracts at the core.
Organization = Actors coordinating to reach shared objectives.
The Aragon Association is a non-profit entity based in Switzerland. It is a legal steward of the Aragon project, made responsible for managing intellectual property and funds raised in the Aragon Network Token sale. The Aragon Project is governed by ANT Holders in the Aragon DAO and the Aragon Association will progressively and securely transfer the treasury to the Aragon DAO vaults, as security thresholds are met.
Over 3,800 DAOs have been created on AragonOS, including reputable high TVL projects such as Lido, Decentraland, API3, and more.
