Hello Xillion.one community!
After previously recapping the general components and types of Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), this article will be focusing on one of the most vital categories of DAOs - Educational DAOs. Although the formation of Educational DAOs is still in the early stages at the moment, these DAOs provide the crucial foundation for the development of the entire DAO ecosystem.
Educational DAOs seek to foster proper guidance and interconnectivity between all branches of the ecosystem, involving the utilization of expertise both within and outside of the Crypto world.
Below are five Educational DAOs which are currently providing valuable content (In no particular order).

- ScribeDAO is a learn-to-earn DAO that creates incentive structures for motivated Web3 community members to upskill themselves from readers of content, to synthesizers of content and ultimately to creators of content.
- The goal is to make DAO/Crypto knowledge a public good by making it more accessible by breaking it down in bite sized chunks. This is done by developing structured roles which empower users to become better learners, proficient writers, and establish leadership skills. One of the main components involves the gamification of learning, which rewards all users in the learn-to-earn model.
- Topics/Features Include:
- A growing following of 2000+ readers to give exposure to writing that’s important to you.
- Enabling an atmosphere where students can co-own and collectively govern their schools, and where learners and educators will have aligned incentives through holding the same tokens.
- The university model is often subdivided into colleges or schools. Each college has an area of expertise and the university as a whole aggregates these colleges so students can gather information across disciplines, in which DAOs are perfectly situated to improve on this model.
Educational DAOs will continue to expand as additional industries and areas of expertise begin to emerge in the greater Blockchain ecosystem. At the moment, there are more opportunities and open lanes for collaboration than ever before, which leaves room for innovation beyond our imagination. The Xillion.one team is excited to be a part of this transformative era, and will continue to provide our community with informative content.
