Why the Network Should Exist
The world is in the middle of several large scale disruptions to the environment, economy, supply chains, and other life supporting systems.
We think there is an opportunity to combine decentralized collaboration, experience-based learning, fundraising, and governance to build portals into the new world.
We are developing a funding and education platform to help people learn about, crowdfund, and participate in resilient & regenerative projects all over the globe.
Performance During Disruption
Resilience is about minimizing the time it takes for you to absorb, recover, and adapt after a disruption.
Resilience is foundational to human survival, evolution, and thriving, and with more communities focused on helping people build resilience, everyone benefits.
Resilience is built through exposure to disruption, and by voluntarily leaning into discomfort. As the saying goes, hard times create strong people, strong people create good times, good times create weak people, and weak people create hard times.
What if we designed environments to promote resilience?
The Full Resilience Stack
Both online and offline, these environments will engage in:
🛠️ Education & skill building
🏋️♂️ Natural health
🏕️ Resilience training
🌱 Food sovereignty
🗺️ Localism & bioregional economies
💸 Decentralized funding
Who to Engage to Advance Our Purpose
PortalDAO will engage individuals and organizations who work in various areas of regenerative and resilient culture, such as regenerative finance, permaculture, maker-culture, natural building, bioregional economies, social technologies, art, and land stewardship.

An Archetypal approach to community
PortalDAO will be divided into 4 guilds that are responsible for different functions within the network. These guilds follow an archetypal hero’s journey and are meant to be cultural pillars for the community and the extended network. Guilds exist to connect people, generate wisdom, gather and distribute resources, and provide real experiences.
Journey is about going on quests and experiences that initiate participants.
Coordination & Action Network
Gather is about meetups, events, and taking collective action.
Wisdom is about courses & workshops, & documenting lessons learned.
Masks & Archetypes
The Token / Membership / Passport / Access Key
Archetypes represent the different roles in the tribe. Likes masks, these roles can be temporarily worn when they’re needed, and removed when they aren’t. That is why we chose Archetypal Masks as the visual portion of the project. Masks are the gateway to many things in the network…
Each mask is 100% unique, and some masks come with secret / hidden perks and membership to hidden tribes. You can trade masks to get the ones you like, and you can buy multiple masks to unlock more perks in the future.
Things We Can Do Together That We Can’t Do Alone
When considering what a network could make possible, conversations largely reflected an interest in:
Access to crowdfunded land deals
Building a community of support
Accelerating shared learning
Access to accommodations in multiple communities
Reducing duplication of effort & organizational silos
Initial ideas to explore include:
- Creating a sense of community where people can connect with others building regenerative projects.
- Curating education and best practices from the different parts of the regenerative culture community.
- Building a regenerative economic network, and making the financial case for investments in regenerative culture and projects.
- Facilitating events and governance practices in the regenerative culture community.
Benefits of Resource & Knowledge Pooling
There are a few potential advantages to pooling funds together in an online community to buy land:
- Increased buying power
- Shared risk
- Shared expertise
- Greater diversification
