Background: The European Blockchain Association (EBA) is rooted in (European) Law. It was founded as an eingetragener Verein (e.V.) or club in Germany. The EBA has developed and implemented a novel governance model incorporating practical applications for blockchain technology for the governance of a decentralised organisations.
Specifically it is a DSAO or Decentralised Semi-Autonomous Organization. On one hand the EBA approach to governance is largely a reaction to unworkable aspects of DAOs (Decentralised Autonomous Organisations) which are incompatible with established common and civil law in most jurisdictions. On the other hand it seeks to address limitations of traditionally managed centralised organisations by using blockchain technology to provide for topics such as voting to increase transparence and reduce overhead.
For some of you blockchain, DAOs and DSAOs might be entirely new. If so, take a few minutes to view the explainer videos below to get some background before moving on.
- The incorporation of the DSAO as a legal entity (in the form of an association ("e.V.") registered in Germany)- The installation of a detailed set of governance processes involving the appointment of a (human) Board of Directors as well as an independent (human) appellate body to resolve disputes (Blockchain Arbitration Forum)
Like traditional DAOs the EBA's DSAO utilises a cryptocurrency-based incentivisation scheme (CrowdstartCoin XSC) and decentralised voting system leveraging blockchain strengths.

The survey is segregated into four parts and allows for free text responses and multiple-choice answers.
1. Information on the survey participant2. External legal representation3. Tokenisation of membership in a DSAO4. Exchange of value within a DSAO
Your responses may be used only in an anonymised form or collectively as part of survey statistics unless you give your express written consent.
It should take 20 minutes to complete the survey from this point.
