In order to scale, a governance system needs to be efficient, which means, among other things, having mechanisms for managing the attention of the collective. It needs to ensure the most important proposals get attention, that those proposals get attention from the right subgroups, and that the subgroups are inclined to act in accordance with the interests of the greater majority.
We have architected a mechanism to address these challenges, and we call that mechanism "holographic consensus.” To put it simply, by enabling people to make predictions about which proposals will pass, and rewarding them for making accurate ones, there is an incentive to sort through proposals and identify those that are high-quality and most aligned with the purpose of the DAO. With this sorting in place, it becomes more efficient for DAO reputation-holders to consider and fund the right proposals. For more detail about holographic consensus, we recommend this talk by DAOstack architect Matan Field.
