Cyber: A DAO for a decentralized search engine and web3

cyber

Hey, Aragon community! My name is Serjei, I am the ecosystem development lead of cyber~Congress. an Aragon powered DAO behind the launch of cyber, a decentralized google built with the help of Tendermint and IPFS.

We use Aragon as one of our main communication arteries for both, the governing DAO of the protocol and the dev. organization behind the launch of the DAO.

I will describe this below, but first, I would like to describe what it is we do at cyber.

Here is our codebase and our community transparency folder

This is the main, current, interface to the protocol

We are still in public testing, a throughout ELI-5 FAQ on what we do can be found here. Most recently, we published a blog post that contains a playlist of videos from our last workshop, including mentions of the Aragon DAO.

Long story short though, we are building a decentralized google for provable and relevant answers, powered by the community, Tendermind and IPFS. Our mission statement is to create a universal search protocol to (a) build an open semantic field of the internet with the help of blockchain technology and cyberlinks, and (b) decentralize the infrastructure of the web with the help of blockchain.

There are 2 ways in which we use Aragon:

  1. Our organization is shaped as a DAO. It lives on the Aragon mainnet and all the important decisions within the team are done via the DAO and are projected to GitHub. This is the cyber~Congress DAO

  2. The idea is that the protocol should and will be governed by an Aragon DAO, which will be called cyber~Foundation. We have already started to describe it and it has an own repository, with a thorough description of the test launch proccess in screens (text will be added later). This DAO will govern the protocol and will be in charge of the ETH pot donated to it during a year-long auction. We have already started working on two Aragon dapps. (A) Aragon auction app, that will allow people to participate in the auction. (B) Aragon vesting app, this will allow people to vest our mainnet CYB token (our chain is a sovereign blockchain backed by the Tendermint consensus engine), and receive the governing THC token.

We have listed cyber as one entity on the Aragon wiki, however, in the future, we plan to list both entities, the congress and the foundation, as they are 2 separate entities with very different tasks. One launches the protocol, the other governs the protocol.

To our knowledge, this will be the first case of a purely digital, decentralized, non-physical DAO, in the sense that it will not have any other pull strings in the eyes of real-world bureaucratic foundations, non-profit organization and others etc. We strongly believe in decentralization and a no-KYC policy, as good software doesn’t need all this. We believe that with the help of Aragon and code, the community can govern the protocol and the money pot that backs it.

You can now use cyber.page (the app for cyber) to claim and vest tokens via our Aragon apps and use them to participate in our distribution games and play on our Cosmos based chain! Check out the guide

Or just go to cyber.page and use your metamsk extension to do this. Check out the Aragon dapps too

Cyber’s test~Auction of the Euler test network has come to an end. Its time to kick off the on-chain governance of our decentralized VC fund, managed by the GOL token holders. This is all a small test of the future upcoming changes to the way anyone perceives and utilizes blockchains!

We invite all GOL holders to kick-off the governance at euler~Foundation. Cybers test-network, community-powered Aragon-DAO and a Decentralized fund managed by the token holders:
