DAC analysis and evaluation
« on: February 12, 2014, 12:30:52 PM »

DACs currently have a set of metaphors and a few use cases that spring to mind whenever one tries to think their general nature. Could we enhance our creativity by looking at prominent components and perhaps develop a metaphor for each one? Furthermore, how do we evaluate these innovative DACs?

Suggestions welcome!


DAC analysis

0) Storing information.
    - Securely, and in a distributed fashion! Namecoin, torrent trackers..
1) Storing information-property.
    - Secure, distributed with unique, private access. Information as a commodity.
2) Consigning information-property to a set of rules.
    - Time lock information-property, gamble with it.
3) Exchanging information-property.
    - Trade information like a commodity.
4) Predicting information.
    - Predicts the answer to any question.
5) Providing (even empirical) information.
    - Data feeds; weather information, confidential information, answers to factual questions.
6) Using empirical information to create pseudo-empirical information-property.
    - Bitshares X turning the value of the dollar into information-property with the value of the dollar. Patent DACs turning ideas into information-property that can be invested in.

7) ...


DAC evaluation

My evaluation of DACs starts with:
1) Business Model
    - all dacs have one primary business model, transactions
    - so a business model is really a set of transactions supported
2) Profitability  (same business model can have different levels of profit)
3) Security Model  (POW vs POS vs Consensus)
4) Scalability
5) Economic Principles
     - free market, socialist, anti-hoarding, voting
..

Then there is the tools available to DACs:
   1) Market Mechanisms  (prediction markets and trading algorithms)
   2) Auctions
   3) Issuing Shares
   4) Dividends
   5) Nash Equilibrium
   6) Multisig
   7) Swaps
   8.) Options
   9) Interest

DACs could be evaluated by,

0. Graph of Popularity
1. Ease and Cost of Implementation
2. Graph of Potential Market Cap
..
..

3. Profitability / business model
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.
