We call Iteration 0 to the first distributed decision-making process carried out in ALDEA and driven by the community. For these definitions, we’ve used the learnings and experiences from Project Catalyst as a basis. However, there is no “best” way to carry it out, since there are multiple endogenous and exogenous variables of the DAO that performs it (i.e.: objective, region, knowledge, maturity, infrastructure, etc.). For this reason, we define Iteration 0 as the first "experimental process" that will help us improve and adapt for the next iteration, following the path outlined by the community.
