Senior players in the trend circle think :「Vibe The essence of is the sense of randomness , Wearing items only depends on the most comfortable part of your personal Aesthetics , Once trapped in search 「 Oxidized sole 」 The routine , It will become a deliberate and blunt swing , Lose true freedom and randomness Vibe, The way you deliberately maintain it is right 「Vibe」 The biggest violation of spirit 」.

Obviously , at will 、 comfortable 、 At ease 、 Keywords such as nature are Vibe The most important kernel .

What kind of behavior will weaken Vibe?

What is? Vibe?

What is? Vibe? It seems like a work of art , It is difficult for us to give a precise and official definition , But we try to understand it from several aspects .Vibe The literal translation is 「 Resonance 、 atmosphere 、 Induction 」, Among them, I think in the Chinese context ,「 Resonance 」 The best way to convey this state .「 Resonance 」 In the physical sense, it refers to the phenomenon that an object makes sound due to resonance , At the spiritual level, it means , An emotion resulting from the mutual infection of thought or emotion . Can react on both levels Vibe A trait of : harmonious / Agreement , Whether it's between two people or a large group ; Whether this phenomenon or state lasts long or short . As long as a person's emotional state or an environmental atmosphere can be communicated to others , And be felt by others , That leads to Vibe.

Vibe It's a neutral word . Because we can't deny that before several bad guys are ready to do bad things , There will also be a kind of Vibe, Although that may be evil .21 At the beginning of the century, there was also a conflict between the non mainstream groups that killed Matt Vibe, It's sad and complicated .Vibe It can be a noun , It can also be a verb . Like killing Matt in the process of development , More and more members are Vibe Into this tribe , And produce consistent activities , Although in the end, their beauty disappeared because it was difficult to be accepted by the mainstream world .

Vibe As an emotional atmosphere , There are concentration levels . When the concentration is particularly high , It will become a carnival visible to the naked eye , It has a strong appeal ,meme Is one of the typical representatives , People often act in a way that goes beyond reason ; When the concentration is relatively low , It may appear as some scattered discussions . A kind of Vibe The time of existence varies ,meme Usually comes fast and goes fast , Maybe you remember that little brother from Vietnam NFT; Of course, there are some vibe It is cherished and maintained , such as FWB Of Vibe.

But no matter what form it appears , It's all DAO, Even the whole Web3 Indispensable things .

Why? Vibe So important ?

Senior DAO Player Teacher Wang Chao (@cwweb3) I've been in several popular DAO Community to 「Vibe」 Search for keywords , Find out Vibe The frequency of the word in each community is ranked as follows :

Frequency size sorting : BAYC(6000+)>FWB(4000+)>Mfer(2000+)>BanklessDAO(800+)>DeveloperDAO(600+)>MirrorDAO(11+). The common characteristics of these communities are , They are content or culture driven DAO, Compared with those DeFiDAO,Vibe The role played in such communities is more critical . Interestingly , We found that ,Vibe The frequency of occurrence in the community seems to be related to the productivity of the community to some extent 、 vitality 、 There is a positive correlation between sustainable creativity , Of course ,vibe The high frequency of this word is not a DAO Necessary conditions for good development , but Vibe The appearance of is .

about DAO/Web3 For the community , People are the soul of community development . Maslow's hierarchy of needs tells us , In meeting the physiological 、 After basic needs such as safety , People often start looking for love / ascription 、 Seek respect and self fulfillment . People are social animals , There is a need to be accepted by society and specific groups , This is also the sense of security that many people are looking for . And a community Vibe, One that fits one's own temperament 、 The familiar atmosphere can be used as a security medium to wrap people , So as to make people feel comfortable in such an environment . In fact, this medium also acts as the adhesive between people , For a community , Is there anything more important than making people connect ?

Maslow demand level

Just generating connections is not enough , A weak connection may be diluted by time , Maliciously damaged, etc ; But this connection is a prerequisite for the community to generate value . modern society , Many times we need collaboration to accomplish some tasks and goals , stay DAO The same is true in Chinese . Community Vibe The initial role is to bring like-minded people together , Over time , The increase in the number of people 、 what's more Vibe The increase in concentration , Then the impulse to show , Inspiration for doing things , Just like ancient people chatting , When you have a great time talking , He began to write poetry ; Maybe like many rich people , When you have money, you wear all kinds of famous brands to show yourself , It seems , At any time, we can't escape the shackles of human nature . Put aside intelligence and ability , Practice also proves , The more we appreciate each other , Like-minded people can better cooperate .

Of course ,Vibe Most critical , Or show the unique spiritual temperament of a community , It's also a judgment DAO One of the indicators of community Sustainability . It's like a work of art , There are also grades . We can compare Dana to 《 Philosophy of art 》 Appreciation and analysis of works of art in .

The purpose of art is to make a prominent feature dominate everything . And obviously , There are many characteristics of things , It is those characteristics that are not easy to change , profound , Intrinsic , Innate , Basic , That is, the characteristics of elements or materials are better than those of floating watches , External , Derived , Crossing over other features , That is, the characteristics of cooperation or arrangement are more stable and advanced .  

We can intuitively feel what different communities show Vibe, Those who do well , Content or culture driven communities , They have captured some of the most essential spiritual manifestations of mankind , Whether it's the pursuit of beauty or the disgust of ugliness 、 Or the confusion of life 、 A kind of vanity , Under the seemingly empty beauty and ugliness, most people have , Similar spiritual core , such Vibe The communities that come out often have strong vitality , Because it resonates with everyone . On the other hand , There are also floating watches 、 The community of derived features , The most representative may be those imitation projects that copy and copy . Of course , There are many manifestations outside the kernel , Like works that praise love, there are not only novels 、 poetry , There is also music . therefore , Whether it's black or white , Avatar or music , They can all act as implementations Vibe A product set off .  

Vibe Yes DAO/Web3 What does it mean for the community ?

We can look at it from two aspects: concept and implementation Vibe What it means to the community , It's a simple analogy web2 Strategy and tactics , It's just web3 It usually happens from bottom to top .

At the conceptual level , In fact, we have said in the importance section ,Vibe As the spirit of the community , It brings a sense of security to community members , It also complements the precipitation of community culture . But it is not in the conceptual framework of corporate culture . Corporate culture is top-down , It exists for the products and services of enterprises , Not to inspire employees' Creativity 、 Satisfy employees' self realization ,Vibe It carries a characteristic that cannot be satisfied by the corporate culture , Respect everyone's uniqueness , Instead of forcing people into a specific frame .

At the executive level ,Vibe What's the use ? I think there are at least the following points .

The focus of mechanism design .  in fact , I think the whole web3 Of Vibe Already there. , That is in web3 The kind of freedom that people feel 、 fair 、 An open atmosphere . And people , yes web3 Vibe The generator of , This undoubtedly points out to us an important code of action , The economic mechanism design of the whole system , Small to onboarding technological process , Design of voting process , That's all to meet the needs and welfare of most community members , Otherwise, community members will soon feel that they are just tool people , You will also quit quickly because you feel out of place in the community .

The catalyst of the event .  although meme Hype is usually just to make people feel , Full of bubbles , But I have to say that its power is powerful , People are often forced to participate in . bubble , It is often the only way for new things ,Gartner The technology maturity curve of shows this process well . Think back to what the community decided to do , We'll feel that Vibe, A lot of inspiration comes from the fermentation of emotions , People are excited , When Vibe When the concentration reaches a certain level , Many people will jump out and be eager to try , Then there will be real implementation .

  Gartner Technology maturity curve

Rub Rub the smooth agent .  Although good communities can show a high degree of unity and concentration Vibe, But everyone has his own personality and characteristics , There are also different majors and abilities , Collaborate in the community , Friction is inevitable . At this time, there is no leader to coordinate , In addition to testing the subjective initiative of individuals to solve problems ,Vibe It can also play a big role . As in the web3 Random door , We have different views and ideas about a thing , But even if you quarrel about one thing again , We believe that we will also reach an agreement at a higher level , That is due to the unity of values , Many times this unification will be in 「 ah , Right. , this is it 」 Strengthened in the excitement of .

Last , A bull market is a feeling Vibe The best time , But a bear market is a test Vibe Is it the best time .

Vibe What is the mode of production of ?

In the first podcast of random gate , We talked about starting DAO Of 2 Patterns , I think it's used to illustrate Vibe The formation of is also very appropriate .

  1. The first is , First there is a centralized organization , Then based on this form DAO, There can be a variety of ways , For example, brand sharing but independent organization (Bankless&BanklessDAO, The two independent ,BanklessDAO Just by Bankless Brand launch DAO), Or the centralized organization itself becomes DAO Part of (Gitcoin team Become GitcoinDAO Part of ), In this way , original Vibe The creation and foundation of the depends on the founder team , Maybe it's just an understanding between a few people .

  2. The second is , First, a specific goal or creative inspiration is born ( There is no such thing as Vibe Of ), And then to DAO Achieve some goals that cannot be achieved under the existing organizational framework , Like the constitution DAO, The threshold for participation is particularly low , And because the goals and ideas are particularly clear , Therefore, it can quickly gather a large number of people , So as to produce a wide coverage Vibe.

What kind of behavior will weaken Vibe?

formation Vibe It's not so easy , But to destroy vibe But it's easy , Opaque information decision making 、 Unfair distribution of benefits can make a DAO Fall apart at any time . We only offer a partial perspective , Give community builders some reference .

  • Technical bureaucracy

Technical bureaucracy , Also known as 「 Expert rule 」, Use a scene to understand this concept : Almost all DAO There is technical bureaucracy (Technocracy), Even some that seem successful so far DAO, There is also a small group of people who are interested in the proposal 、 Decision making has a huge impact .

Technical bureaucracy is social / The embodiment of cultural centralization , Such centralization is not conducive to Vibe The formation or influence of DAO The impetus of development .Vibe Need a group of people to resonate , If a community represents the subjective will of only one or a small number of people , And didn't convey and infect other community members , Naturally, it's just Vibe Don't get up , A typical example is Just DAO it Pattern .Just DAO it The model can quickly build a DAO The appearance of , Community 、Token And its economic model , But usually face is excellent , The inside is weak .

And the case of eliminating technical bureaucracy in reality , Exactly 「 First build the center / Form the core , Then go to the center 」 The pattern of , such as Gitcoin And TEC DAO, They have one thing in common , Is to spend at least a year to become DAO Make preparations . Leave plenty of time , Help community members fully understand the community or products , The vision of the organization even collides / mission / sense of worth , Set up 「 Cultural resilience 」、 Trust and empathy between people .

Only like-minded people , Plus the barrier of time , To form the soul of the community ——Vibe.Vibe It's an organic 、 The vitality of sustainable development of the community , It's like the community found the state of their Schelling point . More about technical bureaucracy , You can refer to ,DAO explorer Shawn Written 《DAO The dark side of : Technical bureaucracy 》

  • Capital shock

The so-called capital shock , That is, the community has not yet formed a strong Vibe, When productivity has not yet been reflected , Excessive profit seeking behavior and the introduction of external capital , This has a negative impact on Governance and even economic models .

DevDAO, This year, 3 At the beginning of ,DeveloperDAO Prepare to meet in the community to discuss early contributor reward allocation , Because it involves the distribution of benefits , Many people are very enthusiastic , Stakeholders are therefore concerned , This is not unreasonable , But the obvious contrast is , There is little movement in the community ?! The competition and looting for interests make many people smash tickets , Inside , It's easy to breed collusion 、 Manipulation and other dark behaviors , And when rational discussion is needed , Most people have also lost patience and confidence ; Face up , This hurts the image of the community , It seems to outsiders that the ideas and beliefs usually respected are just to cover up the purpose of encircling money .

Juicebox  by people Famous in the first World War juicebox I was stunned by a group of money speculators . because people And established Vibe It seems to become the breath of wealth overnight , idealistic Vibe Completely gone. , It hasn't slowed down to today , The community can't bear the small crowd .

Mirror,「Mirror Chinese Channel , When the first wave entered, the atmosphere was very good , But then came the big talk about the price of money V Canvass ,Vibe Right away . It was not until later Mirror Clear fried currency 、 Articles on the white list are rejected directly , Things are getting better .」 This is what the witness admitted .

For general defi agreement , User brush data 、 The project side needs data , The capital side pursues fame and wealth , We all take what we need , But for DAO In this way, it will be broken .

  • A malicious invasion / damage

I don't know if you've noticed , stay discord On , There is an important step before entering a community , That is to make sure not to do something that violates community justice or disturbs good order , I see some of them refi The community also mentioned one point , If you don't agree or disagree with crypto Will help solve the problem of climate change, not optimistic , I suggest you don't go into the community . At first I scoffed at this rule , It's not allowed to be questioned ? Only later did I find out , The power of language is too strong , For a start-up , For communities that have not yet experienced disaster , Even a voice of doubt can cause disaster , Moreover, this may be because some people with ulterior motives are deliberately picking things .

2018 We are in DAOONE The reason why the community later disintegrated , To some extent, it has also been invaded and destroyed . People are constantly coming in to question the motives of some contributors / Ability , It happened that some information disclosure was not timely , This shakes the most fundamental trust among community members , A question 、 Disappointment and sadness began to spread , Some promising projects have also been shelved , Until the community completely shut down .

The style of behavior between communities can be very different ,BanklessDAO People may have been working hard all the time ,FWB Most of the people do things silently after chatting freely and casually ,Gitcoin People who shout slogans may do things at the same time , But none of them DAO You can move forward when you question yourself .

  • Missing forward loop

As we mentioned in the podcast , Although in the eyes of outsiders FWB People don't do their jobs every day , But behind them, they are constantly passing IRL Activities strengthen ties with each other , Thinking about opening a coffee shop , Will form a group to do NFT Investment, etc . Self realization needs real value activities as support , It can be community activity planning , Content output , project management , Creative design 、 Investment, etc ,Vibe In the landing process of these activities, they are constantly released , The vitality of the community is constantly strengthened , Personal values are constantly discovered , Material and spirit are combined in a spiral posture .

The opposite is , Care for this and lose that , Some communities just care about the wealth code , Some communities believe in , Man is an extremely complex animal , He is tired of the old , He is greedy , Both material and spiritual want , He's also risk averse , Pursuing stability , So can you give me a mobius ring ? The kind you can always play !

Last , I hope everyone can be in web3 Find what you like Vibe, Live a casual life 、 comfortable 、 At ease web3 life .
