Overview of Colony

Colony is the most powerful, efficient, flexible, and user-friendly platform for decentralized autonomous organisations. Its goal is to streamline the process of establishing organisations online. Concretely, what the Colony team is trying to do is to apply online communities to raise money, collectively manage those funds, and coordinate activity towards goals without needing to know or trust one another.

What Does Colony Offer Its Users?

It will allow organisations to raise funds by token sales, donations, or receiving revenue. It will provide several different decision-making mechanisms suitable for different use cases and arbitrate disputes in the case of disagreement. And, finally, it will enable a DAO to make arbitrary transactions with any other contracts on the same chain. So if DAO needs to govern another protocol or interact with DiFi, it will be able to do so. One of the key ideas behind Colony's decentralised governance mechanisms is that voting is generally not desirable and therefore it seeks to avoid voting where possible. Colony's modular design means organizations will be able to plug-in extensions to provide their organization with the tools they need to operate as they wish.

What are the main features of the Colony?

The high-level features enabled by Colony include the ability to structure and organise departments or teams - each with their own memberships, to manage a token treasury and apply budgets to different teams and initiatives, to assign authority to members according to a variety of conditions subject to the individual circumstances of the organization, and a variety of different kinds of payments based on a flexible underlying expenditure primitive. Also, Colony considered the problems in the organization and provided the solutions for them, mentioned in the following:

  • Powerfulness

Colony platform provides everything an organization needs to operate on-chain, including payments, teams, authority, governance, fundraising, revenue sharing, arbitration, the ability to interact with any other smart contract on Ethereum, and a whole lot more.

  • Practicality

In a healthy organization, voting should be rare. That's why Colony operates a more agile system of 'lazy consensus.' It means organizations spend their time productively, not endlessly voting.

  • Flexibility

Colony Core provides powerful primitives for finances, organization structure, and authority. Extensions are plug-ins built on those, shaping organizations according to their needs

  • Ease of Use

Colony facilitates DAOs. Unlike the complicated, clunky competitions, Colony's application seamlessly integrates powerful DAO functionality into a polished, logical, easy-to-use experience.

Colony Token

$CLNY is the native token of the Metacolony and is required for:

  • Governance staking: Disputes in the Metacolony need CLNY to be 'staked' as surety. Winning a dispute earns stakers a share of the loser's CLNY.
  • Revenue sharing: Accounts with both CLNY and Reputation in the Metacolony may be eligible to claim a share of Metacolony revenue.
  • Reputation mining: Reputation updates are calculated off-chain by miners who stake CLNY to compete on performing them to earn CLNY and Reputation.
  • Fee auctions: Fees denominated in tokens other than USDT, USDC, XDAI, and WETH are auctioned for CLNY, which is burned.

How Colony Make Money?

Colony generates revenue from network fees. Fees paid in whitelisted tokens go to the Metacolony to sustain ongoing development, security, maintenance, support, and Colony's ecosystem incentive mechanism. Specifically:

  • The Colony Network levies a small fee on payments leaving a colony to an external address;
  • Fees paid in whitelisted tokens like USDC, USDT, WETH, or xDAI go to the Metacolony to incentivize contributors; and
  • Fees paid in other ERC20 tokens go to auctions where token buyers can purchase ERC20 tokens using CLNY, which is burned.

How Does The $CLNY Sale Work?

To make the $CLNY sale as safe and fair as possible, and in particular, to avoid price manipulation and front running, the sale will initially start with a very high price of $50 per CLNY, which equates to a $10bn fully diluted market cap ($50 * 20m CLNY). The price will then start falling until the market discovers a price it believes is appropriate.
