“The thing that we envisioned, which is made possible by what I believe a DAO can do, that was not possible yet.”

Ben Visser is a researcher at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at TU Delft, specializing in Construction Management. During his attempts to catalyze a hydrogen-based tech ecosystem, he’s stumbled upon the cultural and bureaucratic barriers currently hindering large scale systemic collaboration.

He sees blockchain technology and DAOs as solutions to these challenges and hopes to use them to enable “meta-companies” - virtual companies built on top of a consortium of other companies and stakeholders. Tune in to understand how such a concept can be applied to the field of construction, facilitating the long-term planing of big projects and maintaining transparency to avoid corruption.
