The Republic of the Marshall Islands, an independent island state located in the Pacific Ocean near the Equator, has announced that the Decentralized Autonomous Organizations Act of 2022 has officially been passed into law.
The law recognizes decentralized autonomous organizations and enables legal entities registered in the country to formally adopt DAO structures and governance tools. The government hopes this latest move will encourage the growth of decentralized entities and their accompanying elements within the state.
According to the announcement, the DAO Act of 2022 will allow DAOs to incorporate under Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), enabling them to identify as DAO LLCs. The act is also poised to allow both for-profit DAOs and not-for-profit DAOs to register while providing definitions and regulations for DAO formation, agreements, and use of smart contracts. Additionally, the novel act allows for the creation of an investment fund for the government of the Marshall Islands to continue education and training around DAOs and their integration into the economy.
The Marshall Islands could become a top destination for the crypto community after giving legal recognition to DAOs. Is investing in the decentralized future the key to becoming an internationally recognized hub for the blockchain industry? https://t.co/gx6xRKuxRs
The finance minister of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Bransen Wase, shared: “With this adoption of the DAO Act of 2022, The Marshall Islands commits its courts and its resources to the burgeoning world of decentralization, and recognizes the unique place that decentralized autonomous organizations can hold not just in the blockchain space, but in the broader economy as well.”
