Lucas Pontes – Fingerprints DAO, RAW DAO, NFT collector DAOs

Just as NFT technology has disrupted the way art is commercialised, so too is it disrupting the way art is curated. Joining us today to break down the role of curatorial DAOs is Lucas Pontes. Lucas is part of Fingerprints DAO and RAW DAO, in this episode, he fills us in on the greatest issues NFT collector DAOs face, as well as the solutions they aim to solve. We discover the parallels between the traditional art world and the NFT art world, in terms of legislation and curation, as well as the novel, decentralised curatorial system of RAW DAO and its subsequent challenges. Lucas predicts the evolution of the DAO as a format, before delving into NFT photography and what it means for the traditional photography space. Tune in to find out more about all things DAO, and how curation competence is ensured in the ever-evolving world of NFTs!

Key Points From This Episode:


“Perhaps the biggest issue with collector DAOs is there isn’t a very clear business model.” — @lucasponn

“The main purpose of [Fingerprints DAO] is fostering the best collection that we can.” — @lucasponn

“In RAW DAO there is a more decentralised curatorial system in place, which is quite interesting.” — @lucasponn

“As much as people rely on experts, you can’t just say anything is art.” — @lucasponn

“There are a lot of parallels that can be drawn between the traditional art world and the NFT art world. At the end of the day, it’s still a bunch of people in art and you’ve still got the same problem of figuring out what is valuable and what isn’t.” — @lucasponn

“If the curatorial process is entirely open, you’ve got to make sure that there isn’t a way for people to go into it and sway it to their will.” — @lucasponn

“There is a big conflict between what is popular and what is good, and divergence within that. That is not going away with the technology.” — @lucasponn
