Will the Aragon Association become a DAO LLC in Wyoming?


AND IT’S OFFICIAL!! 🤠#Wyoming will recognize #DAOs as a new type of LLC, effective July 1! Thank you legislators & @GovernorGordon for building on Wyoming’s history of inventing the LLC, which all other states followed roughly a decade later. We’re doing it again!

“We look for feedback from the user community to understand any shortcomings of the LLC structure so that we can improve our existing DAO legislation and consider further DAO corporate supplements,” Rothfuss said. “Maybe we need a DAO C-corp next to address other challenges. We’re certainly not done yet.”
