Blockchain proponents already champion the potential of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs).

The Agile Manager

That doesn't mean a concentration of assets in the hands of a few owners: technologies like blockchain make it easier to fractionalize ownership. I ended the previous post by stating that the stage is set for more radical change. Consider the changing attitude toward land, property and shelter.
