How It Works

Cambrian Protocol is a set of Ethereum smart contracts which enable resource allocation through conditional tokens. These tokens are redeemable for real funds when their conditions are met.

This allows digital organizations, like DAOs, to fund projects, issue grants, hire employees, coordinate with each other, and even contract centralized entities without ever needing to trust that their funds are being spent properly.

By composing modular “Solvers” with unique policies, community members can make project proposals which are tailored to their organizations.

Decentralization is Not Enough

Our fixation on decentralizing everything turns our attention from what's important — and still centralized.

Accountability is Everything

DAOs can do anything which can be made accountable to their communities. We're bringing off-chain human activity back into the fold.

The Pre-Mine IDO

Grassroots movements run on sweat equity. We're paying early contributors on merit alone through our utility token, $WRK. Founders included.

WHY IT MATTERS

People First

An organization’s most valuable resource is its community.

DAOs and decentralized protocols are using inefficient foundation grants programs to engage their community, their partners, and even to scale their core team.

Cambrian Protocol is part of a community of projects looking to make human organization programmable. This effort includes exciting projects enabling DAO tooling, edge-governance, legal scaffolding and much more. We seek to be additive, to work with existing projects. Specifically, our effort is focused on the idea that flat decentralized organizational structures ignore the incredible value humanity has achieved from centralization.

We believe that for decentralized organizations to win, they must absorb and evolve centralization, not ignore it. Cambrian Protocol is looking to unlock new forms of centralization and scalability and to create an entirely new surface area for innovation – managerial Keepers.

THE FUTURE OF WORK

Human Capital: On-chained

Enter conditional resource allocation.

By tying the value of conditional tokens to governance mechanisms, organizations can provide funding to individuals and teams that stays accountable to the community.

This crucial unlock allows any digital organization, whether DAO or protocol, to act off-chain beyond the scope of its programming, but within the oversight of its governance.

The Future of Work isn’t just about digital organizations and self-sovereign remote workers, it is about unlocking new forms of human coordination. Just as we should not be surprised that money has evolved, we should not be surprised that human coordination will evolve.
