For a DAO catalyzed by an artist who goes by pplpleasr; the Pleasr community is anything but a pack of people pleasers. Whether it’s their principled acquisitions or vocal community, anyone familiar with the group knows the Pleasr community is made up of mavericks who embody the power of collective action and have developed new ways in which crypto can be used as a medium for impact. They are a collective of defi leaders, early NFT collectors and digital artists with a reputation for acquiring pieces at the intersection of culture and charitable activism.

The inception of Pleasr DAO came from the Uniswap Genesis NFT created by pplpleasr, and a tweet calling for the formation of a DAO to acquire that NFT. The ​​piece “x * y = k” represented a historic, cultural, and economic moment; It is the first automated market equation used by Uniswap. The community came together, aligned under pplpleasr’s vow to donate the proceeds to Asian and Pacific-islander focused charities, and solidified under their mission “to collect, curate and commission art with a cause”.

Figure 1. Uniswap's unicorn reaches the promised Ethereum land. ( "x*y=k" Video by pplpleasr https://twitter.com/Uniswap/status/1374069664297406467?s=20&t=VitzsLj1GXVDyFF_hgecxw).

The genesis auction was just the beginning, the Pleasr team quickly amassed a wealth of accomplishments; one being liberating the legendary “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” Wu Tang Clan album from the estate of disgraced financier Martin Shrekli. Like a decentralized Robinhood and band of merry outlaws, the Pleasr community returned a legendary piece of protest music back to the public through promised listening parties and exhibitions.

Over the past few months, I’ve been asked a lot about the nature of compliance for DAOs. Is this DAO compliant or not? Is compliance a challenge for DAOs?

My answer to these questions begins with the title of this article - compliance is a spectrum.

Before you start a company, you start a side project. You don't incorporate your side project on the day that you have the idea, and you’d likely not incorporate it until you’ve made your first sale.
