WINGS Features & Capabilities
Cutting Edge Capabilities
With features such as support of popular blockchains (starting with Bitcoin via RSK, followed by Ethereum), implementation of AI-augmented assistance on top of popular instant messengers, automatic and social purchase actions and more, WINGS aims to create the most accessible and mass-market oriented DAO platform available.
Start-ups, entrepreneurs, and established companies will be able to easily launch new DAO proposals, while the platform token owners will be able to review these proposals, forecast on their success, participate in promising projects, and increase their involvement in the decision-making process of supported DAOs.
Chatbots technology provides a universal way to communicate based on natural language. Following on the success of the Telegram chatbot API, major companies including Facebook and Microsoft have started working on their own solutions. Chatbots will be the Wings interaction of choice, augmenting the standard UI and enabling DAO interaction through natural conversation.
The Wings platform will integrate these solutions, allowing users to manage and control their DAO through common instant messengers, and increasing member involvement in their DAO.
The DAO ‘Inception’
Being a DAO, WINGS itself will be controlled by its WINGS members. Proud owners of WINGS can contribute forecasts to receive yields (in form of the new DAO tokens) from future DAOs running on the Wings platform, thus automatically participating, in any new DAOs launched. In other words, if you own WINGS tokens and forecast (or delegate your forecasting power), you may automatically gain tokens in all new DAOs launched on top of the platform.
Forecasts may be cast in regards to WINGS management or to show support for new proposals.
No Coding Necessary
Simplicity is everything! WINGS platform provides a User Experience that is intuitive, without requiring knowledge of EVM coding languages such as Solidity or Serpent. Thanks to Wings, anyone with a smartphone can participate and manage DAOs.
Launching new DAO proposals will require no coding whatsoever, using a simple step-by-step wizard. Following the launch, DAO creators will be able to submit new proposals and review votes and feedback anywhere and anytime from the convenience of their favorite IM apps.
Never miss out!
Platform members will be able to deposit their funds to Smart Contract controlled wallets and set their purchase preferences; the Smart Contracts will be doing the rest of the work, automatically spreading the funds across DAOs according to your settings.
Decentralized KYC and Voting
Companies and individuals looking to launch new DAO proposals can reveal their details and may pass through a decentralized Know Your Customer (KYC) process and community forecasting, before getting their proposal launched. This will reduce the amount of fraud and improve the noise to ratio, enabling the community to focus on truly innovative and life-changing projects.
WINGS will have a reputation system based on forecast rating, enabling to rank DAO forecasters for their performance. The higher a WINGS members forecast rating and hence reputation, the greater the awards.
Follow the successful! Through the use of an automatic participation and reputation system, WINGS members can find successful forecast makers and may choose to “follow” them and delegate their WINGS power.
Legal Framework and Counsels Pool
WINGS will provide a full legal framework toolkit that will help companies and entrepreneurs to understand the legal boundaries and protect themselves from regulatory issues. A legal counsel pool will be in place providing licensed, competent and experienced legal advisory.
WINGS will launch with a line-up of committed A-grade projects, enabling early adopters to take advantage of participating in the WINGS DAO Inception. The projects will be launched by known start-up scene and the crypto members behind it, showcasing their trust of the WINGS DAO platform.
Owners of DAO tokens the Wings platform have the chance to:
• Receive a portion of tokens from future campaigns.
• Forecast success for any new DAO submitted to the WINGS platform.
• Participate in DAO proposals via WINGS web and IM apps.
• Rate, get rated and placed in the Wings reputation system.
• Save time and opportunities using the automatic participation feature.
• Follow community leaders with the cooperative participation model.
• Become a community leader and earn tokens from every purchase that follow you
The WINGS platform offers the ability to:
• Set up and manage a DAO with no special knowledge (no code to write!)
• Use the WINGS for launching, managing and communicating with supporters
• Secure stored DAO funds
• Gain competitive advantage with WINGS’ legal framework and tap into the pre-selected legal counsel network

Q: How Wings compares to ‘The DAO’ (Dao Hub) initiative?
A: While we are certainly inspired by The DAO, there are major differences that make Wings a truly unique DAO initiative:
- New DAOs launched on Wings by entrepreneurs and companies will have their own unique DAO tokens, with the community deciding how much to support the projects.
The DAO is limited to the (respectable) sum collected, and each new proposal has to be budgeted out of this fixed sum.
- A portion of all unique tokens issued by new DAOs launched on Wings, will be distributed to Wings DAO members. These tokens will EVM based, enjoying same transfer and Smart Contract capabilities as other custom EVM tokens.
The DAO proposals will not issue new tokens unless their creators elect doing so, thus limiting the flexibility of these proposals.
- Wings is multi-blockchain and will support any major Smart Contacts technology, meaning the DAO creators will be able to sell tokens both for BTC and Ethereum, extending their options and protecting against price volatility of a single cryptocurrency.
The DAO is limited to Ethereum currency only, which still less stable market-cap and price-wise compared to Bitcoin.
- Wings will provide a legal and regulatory toolkit to companies and individuals looking to launch a DAO project on top of the platform, including access to a network of legal counsel, experienced with cryptocurrency projects, thus granting legal compliance.
The DAO will only provide financial resource for the project, while leaving the DAO creator to handle the legal and regulatory matters by him/herself.
- Wings puts the emphasis on a simple and fluent User Experience that enables an easy creation and participation in new projects without the need to learn a new language or manually code the DAO Smart Contracts.
The DAO at this stage still requires complicated usage of Mist wallet in order to both create and vote on new DAO proposals.
Q: Who will be using Wings?
A: The goal of Wings is to make DAOs and smart contracts accessible to anyone who has ever used an Instant Messenger or a chat-room. Whether you are looking to support a promising DAOs or interested in creating a DAO proposal, Wings is the place to do it.
Q: Will Wings be decentralized?
A: Yes, we aim to make Wings a fully decentralized platform. While it may start as a hybrid platform in order to shorten the time to market, decentralization will be the master goal for the platform.
Q: You mentioned Wing token owners automatically gain new tokens from DAOs running on top of the platform. Can you elaborate?
A: Each DAO has its own tokens, which are different from Wing Tokens. Whenever a new DAO is set up, a portion of the newly created tokens is automatically spread between Wing token holders, as ‘payment’ for the platform. Here is an example:
Platform member A owns 1% of all Wing tokens
After a successful campaign, a new DAO, Hexagon, has created 100,000,000 Hexa tokens. As a donation to the platform, part of the newly Hexa tokens are automatically spread between all Wing token owners, with member A receiving 1% of them.
Q: Will use of the platform be free?
A: Using the platform to browse, support and manage DAOs will be free. New DAO proposals will have to offer some of their new DAO tokens as a payment for using and launching on the Wings platform. These tokens will be divided between Wings Token holders in proportion to their Wing token holdings.
Q: Why would I use Wings to create a proposal?
A: Besides the multi-blockchain support of both Bitcoin/Rootstock and Ethereum, Wings focuses on the execution rather than the technicalities. A new DAO proposal is up for all to see and undergoes community review, leaving room for improvements and creating a healthy proposal. Additionally, the platform will allow for easy voting and proposal management, getting in contact with participating members and receiving professional legal consultation.
Q: Will Wings be a Decentralized Autonomous Organization?
A: Yes. Wings will be a DAO, under the control of the community.
Q: When will the Wings DAO start?
A: There will be an official announcement regarding the start of the Wings DAO. Please join our Telegram channel, RocketChat or subscribe to a newsletter in order to be notified once the Wings DAO starts.
Q: Can you provide details regarding the Wings DAO? (How many tokens will be sold, et cetera?)
A: We are currently finalizing the final details including the white-paper of the Wings DAO and will be posting them soon. Stay tuned!
