Aragon Monthly Issue 06 is out!

The latest issue of the community curated digital newspaper about DAOs, governance and the Aragon ecosystem

Aragon Monthly is a community curated digital newspaper about DAOs, governance and the Aragon ecosystem. Created by the community, for the community.

Aragon Monthly was introduced a while back in my post Bringing DAOs back — Aragon Monthly and has since been a monthly aggregated source of News and Articles for hundreds of people interested in decentralized organizations and governance.

In order to bring these Issues to an even more broad audience than the monthly newsletter, we will be keeping you up to date through blog posts of new Aragon Monthly Issues.

As the whole goal of Aragon Monthly is to be a newspaper that is community curated, we wish to invite everyone also to submit interesting news items, articles and classified ads through the aragon-monthly repository!

Content curation is the process of gathering information relevant to a particular topic or area of interest.

Anyone can contribute by creating or requesting new content regarding Decentralized Autonomous Organizations, governance or about anything related to the Aragon ecosystem.
