Formerly known as Multisafe, Coinshift is distinguished as a crypto treasury management company whose operations are aimed at helping decentralized autonomous organizations and businesses.
This is interesting because decentralized autonomous organizations are a fairly new concept. The term or concept started gaining more traction since 2018.
The fact that this new concept is having enough demand to compel the creation of a company like Coinshift could say something about the growth of the digital asset sector and where it is headed.
To understand Coinshift, we need to look at the idea of decentralized organizations. Let’s start.
Decentralized Autonomous Organizations and Coinshift
A decetralized autonomous organization is a group of entities that have a common vision or objective. Individuals can join the decentralized autonomous organization, have voting rights, and pool funds to achieve their desired objectives.
There’s no central decision making entity, no leader, it is merely a group of individuals coming together to make decisions and move the initiative along.
These organizations will likely use smart contracts to execute decisions. They will likely also have a governance token that has a certain cost so that individuals can join and have their vote in the decision. A cost is associated with the governance token so that the individual has a stake in the outcome.
One would not make reckless decisions when they have a stake in the outcome of each decision.
Coinshift comes into thje picture and notes that it seeks to help streamline the treasury management of decentralized autonomous organizations. The firm has raised over $17 million in funds to move its mission along. Investors include large firms like Tiger Global.
