- Delegative Democracy
Definition of "Delegative Democracy"
- A governance mechanism for DOs and DAOs whereby individuals select specific delegates to vote for them on specific issues. The idea is to reconcile the trade-off between full direct democracy (with every individual having equal power) and the expert opinion and quick decision-making ability provided by specific individuals. This allows people to defer to friends, politicians, subject matter experts, or anyone else to make informed, efficient choices.
