WHO WE ARE

We are lawyers, computer scientists and entrepreneurs who are thinking together about the challenges and opportunities of emerging blockchain technologies and how they will affect the way we live in modern society. We want people think about how the future Internet and society will look like in a world of ubiquitous connectivity, decentralized networks and interconnected devices.

SMART CONTRACTS

Automated transactions between humans and machines, or between multiple machines which are automatically enforced by the underlying code of the technology

DISTRIBUTED ORGANISATIONS

Decentralized applications deployed directly on the blockchain, they can form decentralized organizations which are both autonomous and self-sufficient

COMMUNITY GOVERNANCE

Autonomous communities relying on new governance systems that are flatter, more transparent and allow for more democratic and participatory decision-making

About Us

We work together as a team. We reach out to third parties to find synergies and potential for collaborations. We operate through distributed consensus, in a decentralized but coordinated manner.
