Congratulations on the largest raise through a DAO and getting the funds to where they can do the most for Julian.
ETH16,593 has made a tremendous strategic difference to Julian’s defense. It may well have saved Julian’ s life. It will certainly have dealt a blow to the morale of his persecutors. The US government and its allies have spared no expense to incarcerate and hound Julian, and the war against him has also been one of resource attrition. Thanks to all of you, Julian is armoured up against the legal attack against him, but there is still this range of things to do, across politics, tech, media, social media, etc- much remains to be done!
The value of AssangeDAO lies not just in its fundraising capacity but in the community of talent, the combined knowledge, network and intellectual output that can concentrate on a single clear set goal: securing Julian’s freedom.
Advisory Council, Assange Family Participation in AssangeDAO Future.
The endorsement of Julian and his family in AssangeDAO and the use of the Assange name has contributed to the success of AssangeDAO, the participation of many of the high profile contributors and given AssangeDAO legitimacy in the face of copy cat and skam DAO’s
Julians family are 100% committed to freeing Julian and if AssangeDAO follows its original mission, then we and Julian are 100% behind it. If AssangeDAO choses another mission the family needs to continue its work to free Julian undistracted.
This is not just any DAO. A mans life and freedom hangs in the balance, that is why those closest to Julian, his family and lawyers, need to be able to make sure that AssangeDAO proposals do not put his life or defense at risk.
Based on the original governance structure, Julians Family and Lawyer are the backstop that prevents bad actors from taking over AssangeDAO. With the $JUSTICE token available on the market it would be very simple for the forces that are against Julian to buy up the token have a majority vote on any proposals. Without the involvement of those closest to Julian it is almost certain that the DAO will be taken over by the CIA or other bad actors who wish to change the AssangeDAOs mission to their own purpose.
Julian has many ideas for projects for AssangeDAO, including potential future NFTs. The success of the Pak collaboration came as a result of months of preparation and careful thought behind the scenes. The result has been an extraordinary success, and there is much potential in future projects of which there are many.
Inflection point for Noble Cause Philanthropy
AssangeDAO has ushered in a new paradigm of fund raising and crypto philanthropy. The combination of Julian Assanges name a DAO structure and a blue-chip NFT collection catapulted AssangeDAO to another level where it was able to make world wide headlines and attract many well known and reputable supporters(Snowden, Kim Dot Com, Sam Bankman-Fried, Vitalik). Your $JUSTICE token is not only power to vote, but also a badge of honor, a proof of philanthropy that you were here when AssangeDAO made history.
AssangeDAO has re-defined the value of joining forces to fight for a cause, value that in past was locked up, only available to big business or high net worth individuals Is now open to the smallest of contributors through the $JUSTICE token. Over time as more success is accrued by AssangeDAO the proof of philanthropy($JUSTIC) will be even more important for holder to prove they were here at the beginning.
Caution on infighting and politics
A united DAO is a strong DAO. If AssangeDAO falls into political infighting and division there will be a disincentive for smart and capable people to join the DAO as anything that strays from the AssangeDAO core mission is seen as time consuming waste of personal time and resources. This also goes for Julians family, who are fighitng this battle on many fronts.
In the next days we will be holding a twitter space. Stay tuned.
