It’s rare to go a day without running into at least one news article on crypto. The term “crypto” has become a catch-all for any blockchain related project.

Ready or not, crypto is here to stay and it’s already changed the world.

However, the crypto revolution has yet to make good on the promise of decentralization. Billions of dollars have been forever lost to fraudsters, and power is more centralized than ever.
The DOI (Declaration of Inclusion) Foundation is dedicated to address those failures however possible. They partner with ethical blockchain projects to help them improve their chances of being impactful and sustainable. Insights from The DOI Foundation help regulators, investors, and grant providers better understand how crypto can make the world a better place, and where they might want to place their resources.
The Kin DAO is the first of many projects to be assessed by The DOI Foundation. They emerged from a real-world grocery cooperative seeking solutions to food and housing insecurity, poverty, fractured communities, and climate change. Since 2021, founders Asya Abdrahman and Adrian Bello have used blockchain to facilitate mutual aid in-vestments in art, regenerative innovation, and collective land stewardship. And they are doing it with the help of blockchain technology.
After a thorough review, The DOI Foundation has collected evidence demonstrating The Kin DAO’s many strengths, as well as some areas the project can further increase their impact and sustainability.
