Autonomous Enterprise for the Stewardship of On-Chain Publishing

AESOP is a nascent chamber of commerce for on-chain publishing.

What is a chamber of commerce? Similar to business associations, chambers of commerce are nonprofit enterprises which promote a given industry. A chamber may focus on promoting business of all kinds within a certain region, or a business of a certain kind across all regions. In this case, AESOP would be the latter, promoting the global on-chain publishing industry.

How much of an industry is there, for on-chain publishing? This industry is still quite young, which is why we think the opportunity is ripe for a chamber to help integrate the ecosystem, to help prevent fragmentation in talent discovery, and to help facilitate standards adoption.

Beyond identifying and addressing the needs of the on-chain publishing industry, AESOP will also embrace a culture of exploration and experimentation. The primary experiment is whether a chamber of commerce can operate according to on-chain governance processes, along the lines of a DAO. In such an arrangement, individual and institutional actors in the on-chain publishing industry may be able to collectively govern how standards are adopted, how disputes are resolved, and how best practices are shared.
