Nesson Directly targeting most DAO. “I really think that from the word DAO, the only letter that applies is an O for the organization. The rest are no. They are not decentralized or independent or anything like that.

Voting in sushi is not what it seems

another side Leaves doubts about some DAOs, it’s how decisions are voted on. Ninesson said that Wonderland made a presentation to SushiSwap titled “Fukkatsu: Make Sushi Great Again” last April. This offered to revamp Sushi DAO’s organizational and operating structure to make it profitable.

“And why do we say this? Because Soshi, at least two months ago, had only three or four developers. They had no executive team. No strategy. No business team. So there were only a few developers left.”

The The proposal received 51% of the votes in favour, was supposed to be approved by the majority of DAO members, but the story would be different. According to Ninesson, what “really happened and what happens in these kinds of decentralized organizations, is that only three people have decision-making power. So this is not a democracy.”

Under these circumstances “it is very difficult to propose a change and this happens in most DAOs, it is a kind of plutocracy where those with more money can approve projects. But having money does not make you smart and that is what happened with sushi.”

Ninesson concluded by saying that, like sushi, other multimillion-dollar DAOs operate like a “laundry or soup sale.” confirmed it Operations are bad, no one takes responsibility for things, and salaries are crazy A lot of other problems. “Anyone who gets into the DAO will see reality and won’t believe the way it’s being operated.”
