Introducing Concerto: A Novel Investment DAO on Polkadot

Hello Polkadot Community,

I’m thrilled to introduce Concerto, an innovative Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) designed for the Polkadot ecosystem. Concerto aims to revolutionize the world of crypto-asset investment funds, addressing key issues like profitability, decentralization, and information secrecy.

What is Concerto?
Concerto is a decentralized investment fund that operates on the Polkadot network. It’s structured to harness the collective intelligence of its participants, while prioritizing profit, maintaining decentralization, and ensuring secrecy in investment decisions.


  1. Fund Establishment: The fund uses Polkadot’s DOT token. Contributors receive WOOD and NOTE tokens, representing shares in the pool and future dividends, respectively.
  2. Investment Proposal and Voting: Members can propose investments. The process includes planning, voting with zero-knowledge proof for secrecy, and an announcement stage. Sponsors (members who propose) may stake WOOD tokens as a guarantee for their proposals.
  3. Proposal Execution and Asset Allocation: After a vote, DOTs from the pool fund the chosen investments. Members can opt out of investments they disagree with. Rewards from investments are distributed among the sponsor, NOTE token auction, and participating members based on their WOOD token holdings.
  4. Risks and Liquidation: Members can propose liquidation of the DAO, which occurs if over 51% vote in favor. Assets are then distributed according to WOOD token holdings. The system inherently protects against malicious liquidation attempts through market dynamics​​.

Core Features of Concerto:

  1. Decentralized Capital Pool: The capital pool of Concerto is built on Polkadot’s native token, DOT. Participants can contribute DOTs to the pool and receive WOOD and NOTE tokens, representing their share in the pool and future dividend rights.
  2. Innovative Voting System: Concerto introduces a unique voting system that utilizes zero-knowledge proof technology. This ensures that voting on investment proposals is anonymous and secure, preventing information asymmetry and exploitation.
  3. Dynamic Investment Proposals: Any member can initiate investment proposals. These go through a comprehensive process that includes planning, anonymous voting, and an announcement phase, ensuring transparency and community involvement.
  4. Opt-Out Mechanism for Investments: A unique feature of Concerto is the ability for members to opt-out of specific investments, protecting against the potential tyranny of the majority. This ensures that individual investment preferences are respected.
  5. Risk Management and Liquidation: Concerto incorporates strategies for risk mitigation and has clear guidelines for potential liquidation, safeguarding investors’ interests in volatile market conditions.
  6. Tokenomics: The WOOD token value is linked to the DOT assets in the pool and is influenced by the community’s valuation. Concerto introduces an equitable token distribution method called ‘Concerto Bar’, ensuring a fair allocation of tokens to participants.
  7. Governance and Transparency: Concerto is governed by its community. Every investment proposal requires detailed information disclosure, promoting a transparent and decentralized decision-making process.

We are excited to bring this project to the Polkadot community and believe that Concerto has the potential to set a new standard for decentralized investment funds. While revising a preview version of the whitepaper, we welcome your thoughts, feedback, and participation as we embark on this journey together.

Looking forward to your support and engagement!
