From the keynotes and interviews of the Block.one team it is evident that they envision a world of Decentralized Autonomous Communities (DACs) and not just decentralized apps.
Steemit is the primary benchmark of such a community, where users don't buy-in (through an ICO) rather work-in to earn community tokens. Here's a good read about The Next Stage in ICOs: The Community Token Economy by Outlier Ventures.
While EOSIO is making it easier to build decentralized apps, it is important to have an understanding of economics to autonomize (make it self sustaining) consumer facing apps.
Where can a beginner learn to architect a community token economy (like Steemit)? Are there resources/tools/templates online or people who we can collaborate with?
