Here’s a quick and straightforward way to get to know (and start hacking on) Āut.
Āut is a protocol that expands any DAO’s legacy contract (i.e.: a Moloch DAO), and brings Role-based membership to Web3 Communities. At its core, it adds the native concept of Role & Interaction at contract level - so that each Member of a Community is represented in a much more multidimensional, richer way - other than a flat 0x… address.
More about Products & Values
Product Suite & Walkthroughs
1. Āut Expansion: to Integrate āut, add Roles & expand DAO Membership. 2. dĀut - the first Decentralized Authentication System specifically designed for DAOs. 3. (my) ĀutID - a non-transferable NFT ID designed to bind together the individuals with the communities they join, rewarding them based on their participation.
Also, a sexy Social Profile to showcase your experience, your work, and your portfolio.
Values & Identity
From Greek, āut means "Self" - as in Self-Sovereign, or Self-governance.
Or Aut-onomous: that follows its own rules.
It also sounds like Out & we like that →
→ i.e.: I got in, by getting [o/ā]ut.

Get Started ⚙️
Things you can do with Āut
- 👥 Onboard members with a smooth Decentralized Authentication System - let them pick their Role & state their Commitment in the community - and claim a sexy non-transferable NFT ID 👥
- ⚖️ Create interesting experiments in governance (governance > voting) ⚖️
- 💼 Automate Tasks, working routines and other role-based mechanisms (i.e.: Launch a Service DAO!) 💼
- 🤑 Just build your own project, use Āut for some meaningful stuff - and win a prize 🤑
Possible steps & integrations
1. Create and Deploy a DAO with native, role-based membership* 2. That DAO can integrate dĀut as a decentralized authentication system. Just like Google Auth, just pseudonymous and decentralized. 3. As a user, you can join that DAO, and receive a non-transferable ID (NT-NFT) associated to a sexy Social Profile.

Ideas - what we would like to see
These are some of the things that we know are possible - and we would like to see:
- Create a DAO-powered DApp with Āut. We’re particularly excited about projects in Art (i.e.: an Art Collective) & Public Goods (i.e.: ReFi).
- Creative solutions for real-world / social problems using Roles for work/task flow.
- Launch a Service DAO (i.e. freelancers collective) or a Curation Market DAO (i.e.: an innovative Art Marketplace with Creator; Curator; Collector as Roles)
- Novel approaches to governance (i.e.: role-weighted voting) & rewarding models (i.e.: profit-sharing; activity-based distributions; etc.)
- Your idea 🙌
