Who are we?
We are a community of builders and researchers passionate about designing and building a future where any interested human is empowered to take responsibility for his or her destiny as a self-sovereign being and share in value creation in a fair and non-gameable, non-capturable economy.
What do we stand for?
The world is not flat. Over the past decade, what we thought was a free, fair, limitless playing field level for all participants was transformed into the inequitable, dystopian, proprietary playing field of the big equity holders of the Web. The people have been turned into products or Matrix-style feeders of a system that offers them merely a veneer of participation but no equity. They contribute but do not receive compensation for the value they create, thus they are not true stakeholders in the rigged economy. The “Flat World” powered by the Social Web turned out to be a trap: no longer emancipatory but oppressive, entirely contrary to what was advertised. Humans everywhere are waking up to the sobering reality that the hand they were dealt is not one that belongs to a fair game.
The new cry is emphatically not a call for paternalistic Davos-style philanthropy, but a call for a new and fair, level playing field. We believe open, permissionless, decentralized cryptocurrency technology holds the key to the future we seek by providing a long-sought remedy to Capitalism 1.0 – the culprit of the 2008 crisis – as well as to the persistent faults of the current Social Web 2.0.
We believe in a radically reimagined Web 3.0, powered by blockchain infrastructure, that will transform users from drones into fully-fledged, autonomous,value creating network participants- ends in themselves in the enlightenment sense of Immanuel Kant – that are willing actors as well as equity stakeholders in the new internet-of-value-based Web.
We believe that cryptocurrency and Web 3.0 in the hands of the people - to better address the needs and pains of ten billion humans in the Information Age - will serve as the enabling engines of a better, fairer, freer, more human-centric, more open economy and society.
