Participation in shaping the direction of the project
PortalDAO is divided into a number of Culture Labs. Each lab provides a different arena where Members can experiment with a variety of collaborative projects.
PortalDAO is being built to rapidly iterate and test diverse governance models, and solve some of the major problems of DAOs using a combination of group decision-making tools, Ai, and collective sapience practices.
“What did I miss in the last call?”
“Help me write a proposal.”
“Who should I meet in this community?”
“I’m new here, what is the DAO focused on now?”
“Help me resolve a conflict with another member.”
“Help me evaluate the latest proposals.”
PortalDAO benefits from having access to the Wells Gray Golf and RV Resort, a physical location for experiments, journeys, and events. This resource allows us to explore both digital and physical worlds and push the limits of what is possible in the realms of art, wisdom, and resilience.
Access to PortalDAO membership is granted through the ownership of Archetypes NFTs.
The Archetypes NFT collection contains 10,000 unique masks.
Each of the twelve 3D Archetypes comes with a piece of music representing that archetype.

PortalDAO is a unique initiative created by the hosts of Future Thinkers Podcast. The vision is to create and grow a new regenerative culture of art, wisdom, and resilience through decentralized collaboration. The project revolves around a series of Culture Labs, where individuals can come together to collaborate on diverse projects that unify the head (technology), heart (community), and hands (physical land). The project combines group practices, various governance models, software, AI assistance, and a host of other innovative tools to enable decentralized collaboraton and group decision making.
The project has already conducted testing of group practices, governance, and co-living at their 400-acre campsite in BC, Canada. Both founders have a long time background in art, wisdom practices, and resilience. PortalDAO was created to enable decentralized collaboration and help scale up the team’s existing efforts in creating and growing a new regenerative culture.
PortalDAO has created the world’s biggest collection of AI-generated masks based on Archetypes, highlighting their commitment to exploring the intersection of art, wisdom, and technology.
Everything on the roadmap is selected because it creates a platform for future development, whether it be investment, community building, decision-making, or relationship-building.
Become a part of the PortalDAO movement by purchasing an Archetype NFT, participating in community calls, and helping to co-create cutting edge projects in our Labs. Join us today and take the first step towards a collaborative future with more art, resilience, and wisdom.
PortalDAO’s Archetypes are an AI-driven collection of 10,000 NFTs (ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain).
Owning an Archetypes NFT grants you access to an innovative community with IRL perks! It also grants you voting rights to shape the direction of the project. Additional benefits are outlined below.
The Archetypes are the biggest collection of Ai generated masks in the world.
Owning PortalDAO’s Archetypes NFT is an invitation to join us on a lifelong journey towards evangelizing some of Web3’s core values (agency, ownership, and community) in a real-life, tangibly meaningful way.
Archetypes NFTs offer a wide range of utilities for token holders. These utilities can be divided into three categories: head, heart, and hand.
Head utilities include governance and voting rights, airdrops, discounts, treasury, access to partnerships, NFT rewards, and early investment opportunities.
Heart utilities include exclusive access to online events and content, access to knowledge and community calls with special guests from The Future Thinkers Podcast, and access to data from PortalDAO labs and governance experiments.
Hands utilities include a physical event ticket to an exclusive yearly in-person summit, priority access to accommodations, and complimentary limited edition t-shirts for each year of membership.
We started our Podcast FutureThinkers.org back in 2013. We’ve always covered a wide variety of topics around the evolution of technology, society, and consciousness.
We’ve interviewed a lot of people over the years about trying to solve major existential problems that humanity is facing.
We’ve also taught courses in cognitive sovereignty, shadow work & resilience, and facilitated collective intelligence practice for several years.
Over time we started to feel like we were talking a little too much and not doing enough in the real world. So we put it out there to the podcast listeners that we wanted to buy a piece of land and start working in an embodied sense on solving some of the problems we were seeing in the world, by running experiments and documenting our findings. We pooled funds with family, friends, and a few listeners to the podcast, and we purchased a 400 acre campsite and RV resort in Wells Gray BC Canada.
Using this land and our online community, we’ve been testing collective intelligence, governance, co-living, and sustainability models.
Our obsession with the idea of reinventing governance systems and collaborative human decision-making began when we first interviewed Vitalik Buterin, and learned about decentralized technologies like Ethereum. However, we’ve noticed that despite the potential of DAOs, coordinating a lot of people in a decentralized way has been difficult due to a lack of facilitation, group practices, wisdom, and the right tools.
To address this issue, we’re working on a combination of software tools, governance models, group practices, and AI assistance to create something more scalable than what we’ve seen with DAOs so far. Our ultimate goal is to build tools for collective decision-making that bridge these gaps.
The symbolism of the art hints at the idea of taking off the mask: dispelling the shadow and shedding the ego to reveal one’s true self. Archetypes also symbolize the different roles that people can pick up in a community, and then put down.
We’ve covered Archetypes extensively on our podcast: http://futurethinkers.org/archetypes.
Lack of trust & coordination
Lack of trust leads to reduced cooperation, increased cynicism, and difficulty in finding solutions to complex issues, negatively impacting social and economic progress. Lack of coordination causes inefficiencies and suboptimal outcomes for society due to a lack of effective communication and collaboration among individuals and institutions.
AI poses an existential risk to humanity by potentially surpassing human intelligence and decision-making capabilities, leading to unintended consequences or even a loss of control.
Pressure to succeed and make money leads to a culture of busyness, prioritizing work and success over health and wellbeing. Moloch incentivizes profit and growth over ethics and social responsibility, leading to negative consequences in technology and capitalism.
Lack of personal & interpersonal development
Lack of personal & interpersonal development can show up as poor communication, low empathy, inability to resolve conflict, and ineffective cooperation within groups and society, hindering achievement of collective goals.
Each NFT holder will be verified in our Discord to get permission to governance channels. These token-gated channels will provide details on how to submit proposals and when formal voting on proposals will occur.
Proceeds from the NFT sale are expected to be used as follows:
0.18 ETH for the Allowlist
0.20 ETH for Public Sale
Absolutely! We will be on OpenSea to start and other marketplaces over time.
Planting trees and doing permaculture projects on our land! Plus were will be making future upgrades to the platform and to the collection as new and more sustainable blockchain tech is released.
Participants in the public sale will be be able to mint a maximum of 5 NFTs. Allowlisted participants will be able to mint a maximum of 10 NFTs
You own your Archetype NFT. When you purchase an NFT, you own the underlying Archetype, the Art, completely. At no point may we seize, freeze, or otherwise modify the ownership of any Archetype NFT. We grant you a worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy, and display the purchased Art, along with any extensions that you choose to create or use.
We are intentional about this approach because it allows for our project to build awareness in an organic and co-creative way, which is in direct alignment with the PortalDAO ethos.
