Maybe not suitable for this forum indeed. But I would like to chime in with my own thoughts anyways...
The premises, that the organization that created the decentralized organization/application would need monetize from it for creating it, can be incorrect in the first place. After all, being a decentralized application, the source code is open and anyone can come and replicate what you have created.
What cannot be replicated easily though, is the peripherals keeping the application running. For example, such organization may need:
- oracles to provide source of truth to the blockchain
- rating agencies to evaluate individual actors performance
- "vigilantes" to challenge stakes in proof-of-stake designs
- or in general, any competing implementations of collaborators that connects to the decentralized organization
It is very likely that the creator of the decentralized organization are the first ones to create those peripherals, hence they earn according the rule they designed themselves. But in the long run, they have no privilege over others and anyone could replace them for those peripheral functions. In a way, the decentralized organization eliminates the possibility of being a rent-seeker (https://www.investopedia.com/terms/r/rentseeking.asp), you truly need to be useful to others to earn.
