Web3 as a Force for Social and Economic Inclusion

We stand on the verge of a better future for the 1.9 billion people in the world who have access to the internet but earn less (often far less) than $20 a day. 

At humanDAO, we envision a digital workplace that is:

  • Safe. No long commutes, crowded public transport or coming home after dark. Anywhere with an internet connection can be a workplace. 
  • Fair. Equal pay for equal work, merit-based compensation, and equal opportunity regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or physical ability.
  • Flexible. Workers can tap into a global economy that never sleeps, or pause and disconnect. The work will be there when they’re ready for it. 
  • Autonomous. Workers can set their own hours, be their own boss, drive their development with ambition or simply earn a steady wage to create space for other interests. 

One final feature, unique to web3, is the ability to accumulate influence and responsibility for the organisations in which they work, alongside the potential for further financial upside from the value they are driving to the project’s economy.

No opportunity in traditional workplaces comes close to this level of equity or amenity for contributors, let alone does so for entry-level and low-skill roles. 

Being the change we want to see in the world

These principles are the driving force behind our new Pocket Assistant utility NFTs; the first of what we intend to be many steps for our community on a path towards new skills, greater confidence, more opportunity, and a growing sense of financial stability. 

The opportunity we are offering for contributors has proven so popular we had to withdraw the ad from job boards after being inundated with applicants. 

And they are diverse. While many are drawn from our core community in the Philippines, we have attracted applicants from elsewhere in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America. Over half are women. Almost two thirds have never used crypto. 

Curiosity and motivation are a powerful duo, and we are creating a way to funnel that energy into the world of crypto, web3, DAOs, and other innovative projects being built on blockchain technology. 

We hope you’ll join us in creating a brighter, more inclusive future for the world’s underserved communities, and start your own journey of discovering just what these new streams of talented, energetic contributors are capable of in your organization.
