eosDAC is pleased to announce the formation of The DAC Foundation, based in Zug, Switzerland.

Since its inception, eosDAC has received a number of extremely generous donations. To date, these funds have been held on behalf of eosDAC by Incommsec Ltd, a service provider to the DAC. This arrangement was never intended to be permanent because a standard private company, without a banking/custodial license, is not designed to hold funds. Furthermore this structure provides no protection for the ‘purpose’ of the funds.

Therefore, in order to protect the purpose of those funds going forward, a Foundation has been established in the canton of Zug which has as its founding purpose (quoted from Foundation deed):

promoting and developing new forms of technology-based decentralised organizations, in particular the decentralized autonomous community ("DAC"), as well as the technologies on which such communities rely for their organisation and the legal and social environment in which they evolve.
The primary but non-exclusive focus of the Foundation is the promotion and development of the DAC named "eosDAC" and potential derivative organizations thereof and potential organizations following thereon.

The funds will be administered by the Foundation’s Trustees according to the specified purpose, for instance in the granting of funds for eosDAC’s servers and other fiat expenses as applied for by Custodians, and other projects deemed in line with the purpose by the Trustees going forward.

Members of service companies to eosDAC should not be foundation trustees as it is a conflict of interests ....even in Zug.
