Pioneering social tokens data and news site Forefront has developed a new DAO framework that it’s calling “Vibez Infinity Flow”. It will implement the framework in its second season. The framework is supposed to help individual DAO members more easily get aligned with the DAO’s objectives as a whole. The idea was developed during Forefront’s “off season” as it took time out to plan the DAO’s future.

Musicians and artists, including a founder of Russian art and activism group Pussy Riot, formed UkraineDAO last week. The DAO would sell a single NFT of the Ukrainian flag, but also launched a PartyBid for the NFT that would allow anyone to buy a fractional slice of the token. The NFT has attracted $4.6 million in Ether in about three and a half days.
