For those who don’t know, Lobby3 is Presidential Candidate and UBI proponent Andrew Yang’s DAO. Andrew holds monthly AMAs and the DAO members work closely with his staff in order to have our voices heard in Washington D.C… Unlike Blockchain Association, Lobby3 represents the people in crypto, not the big businesses. Yang’s team has been working closely with members of Congress for years on issues related to poverty in the United States which paved the way for Lobby3 to have strong working relationships with both parties.
Structurally, Lobby3 is designed to be decentralized and is actively trying to build partnerships with other DAOs. In doing so, Lobby3 is setting it self up to be a microphone for us, the people, rather than simply using its privileged position to advance the opinions of its initial members.
Unlike the formal relationships CityDAO has with some other DAOs and the Blockchain Association (which are managed by the guilds), I propose this as a grass-roots integration: an opportunity for members of both DAOs to cross-pollinate their ideas, conversations, friendships, and professional connections.
It is an opportunity for each of us to form stronger bonds with the likeminded when it is easiest to do so. CityDAO should build a strong working relationship with Lobby3 before it grows too large, which will happen very soon: Yang is planning on promoting it at several upcoming Web3 conferences.
I was on a call with Yang’s team yesterday – they’re looking to bring positive stories from Web3 to Washington to combat the misconceptions that are dominating the conversation – what’s more positive than a bunch of strangers from around the world coming together to turn a pie-in-the-sky Tweet into reality!
If we sweep the floor and buy 10 tokens on OpenSea, it will only cost us 0.4283ETH to have our voices heard in D.C., fix Web3’s reputation, and hang out with Andrew Yang.
