We are happy to announce the 2022 Trust Protector election for the Dash DAO Irrevocable Trust.
What is the Dash DAO Irrevocable Trust? 🤔
The Dash DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) Irrevocable Trust, was formed in July 2017 to ensure that the Dash Core Group (DCG), the largest network-funded organization responsible for Dash’s development, is held accountable to the Dash network in more ways than simply defunding it.
The trust is structured so the Dash network is the beneficiary, the trust owns 100% of the shares in the Dash Core Group, and the trustee ensures that the everyday work of DCG is following the best interests of the network. The Trust Protectors serve as a check and balance system to ensure the trustee and DCG are doing their jobs and have the ability to replace any members of the DCG Board of Directors if they are not satisfactorily servicing the best interests of the network. The Dash masternode network elects six Trust Protectors every year to ensure they also have the best interests of the network in mind.
