PhD Track Innovation in Web3: discovering novelty in forms of organizing.
This PhD project presents an integrative review of 21st-century blockchain-based organizational governance around decentralization, tokenization, smart-contract design, and underlying blockchain architecture. Second, blockchain-based organizational governance is conceptualized as a novel form of organizing innovation around (a) a decentralized layer, enabling agents to hold wallets containing fungible and non-fungible tokens; (b) social governance, enabling the formation of DAOs to access, discuss and compensate its members; (c) algorithmic governance, enabling the use of DApps to facilitate storage, voting and finance; and (d) a protocol layer, enabling an underlying blockchain architecture that supports L1 & L2s, bridges and oracles. Third, this project investigates the effect of social (DAOs) and algorithmic (DApps) governance mechanisms on resources afforded to Web3 agents in the Metaverse built on blockchain protocols.
