Primordia DAO, a NEAR Foundation-funded, Web3-powered impact organization, on June 23 at the High Bar in New York City’s historic Times Square District launched a campaign to inspire and help structure 100 Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) with the aim of creating significant global social impact.
The one hundred DAO will leverage the NEAR Protocol, a carbon-neutral layer 1 blockchain, in creating a higher quality of life and social justice in communities around the world

Prior to the launch of the campaign, thirty mission-driven DAOs leveraging the NEAR Protocol had already launched. The DAOs are concerned with activities like dispersing food to unhoused persons, onboarding excluded communities into the Web3, securing equitable land ownership, and finding solutions to climate change among others.
The Primordia DAO was launched by The Kin DAO, a decentralized autonomous organization based in San Francisco. The Kin DAO itself was established during the Covid-19 pandemic and it helped over 55,000 people (IRL) to access critical services and resources during the Pandemic.
Commenting on the objective of Primordia DAO, the co-founder Adrian Bello, said:
“DAOs are about more than hype. Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (or DAOs) empower communities online and throughout the world. While media headlines typically focus on NFTs, blockchain technology offers organizational tools that allow individuals with a shared vision to collectively vote (governance), transact transparently, and function as asset management. This is the next wave in global social justice as an organizing movement.”
During the launch event of the 100 DAOs campaign event, DAOs from around the globe were highlighted including DAOs from Scandinavia, Mexico, the United States, and beyond.
From Mexico, there was the Petgas Dao which deals with fossil fuel sustainability, Xibalbanft DAO which is a Cenote Conservation project, and the Sacred Waters DAO which is a water conservation project.
DAOs mentioned from the United States include Lowkey Giant DAO which deals with NFT/Crypto creativity and culture, Seven Vision DAO which is a Sovereign media production studio with life-affirming values for transformative times, and the EFAM DAO which deals with direct food & medicine to displaced people.
There was also the Verse Gallery DAO, which is the first Scandinavian physical NFT gallery bridging the knowledge gap around NFTs & blockchain to people in Norway.
The co-host and Primordia DAO highlighted that they were “village building in the metaverse and beyond,” and their focus is “human-centric”. They also went ahead to say that they wanted to support what the Blockchain has to offer for all those with smartphones and access to the NEAR Protocol.
