Enough of the imbalance that is destroying our democracies, our planet, and ourselves. Enough of the pendulum politics of left and right, as well as the paralysis in the political center. Enough of the visible claw of lobbying in place of the invisible hand of competing. Enough of the economic globalization that undermines sovereign states and local communities. Have we not had enough exploiting of the world’s resources, including ourselves as “human resources”? Many more people are concerned about these problems than have taken to the streets. The will of people is there; an appreciation of what is happening, and how to deal with it, is not. We are inundated with conflicting explanations and contradictory solutions. The world we live in needs a form of radical renewal unprecedented in the human experience.
Blockchain is the solution – an immutable record of all transactions, a rock solid history and proof of all voting, proof of identity that is beyond reproach. Completely transparent so all records are open to all to see. The Blockchain is about truth. It’s about decentralising trust and taking it from the hands of a few and into the hands of many…. distributed by cyberspace, gamed by code and made honest by algorithms.
Since we as human began to organise ourselves into communities some 10,000-12,000 years ago, we have struggled to find ways to live together in larger and larger groups. We have seen movements such as the introduction of Democracy by the Greek and Native Indians, Commons in the Middle Ages, Libertarianism, Communism, Authoritarianism and a slew of other isms’ trying to find a way to live together in relative harmony.
The problem is…all these old ways of organizing ourselves simply don’t fit in the complexity of the new global world we live in. We need to remove the temptation of unethical greed by making it impossible to cheat or be cheated by any one person, one company or one ideology. We need to take the single out of trust and replace it with a hive of trust. Or what is also now called decentralised and distributed trust.
And the Blockchain can do it. From Identity to Bulletproof Voting and Smart Contracts for Governance… The Blockchain is a new paradigm for organizing government with less friction and more efficiency, and at much greater scale than current paradigms.
It’s a fundamental tool that can not only enable direct democracy andtools to ensure voting is pure and unhackable – but also integrated socioeconomic change which can allow us to eliminate poverty by easily administering a universal basic income with technology rather than people. It’s a platform that creates total transparency so attempts at corruption are clear.
The Blockchain is so much more than an isolated technology using advanced forms of cryptography and a dencentralised ledger system for Bitcoin and finance – and it’s not only about efficiency or effectiveness… doing things 20 times faster or saving money but its power is that it enables people to organize themselves in new and different ways.
Over the past two centuries, our society in the West has undergone continual change – economic cycles that whirl from boom to bust – and has always emerged transformed and strengthened. Until now. We think society is on the brink of a change so big, so profound, that this time capitalism itself, the immensely complex system by which entire societies function, has reached its limits and is changing into something wholly new. And we think The Blockchain will drive it.
The only future for the existing monopolistic capitalist structures is to keep finding new markets to conquer – and in a finite world where we are on the cusp of environmental disaster and overpopulation is slated to challenge the planet’s ability to provide for all, there needs to be a radical change in how we govern both ourselves and the planet as a whole.
Caplitalism itself as we know can not survive as move to a zero cost limitless shelf life supply of digital goods and services. The tension between limitless knowledge and limited ownership is being exacerbated as we move from a proprietary world of scarcity to a new world where all information is ubiquitous and free, where crowdsourcing and open source models cannot be challenged by the old ways. The Information Age has connected us and informed us, and now we are putting our communities and knowledge to use to share and create.
But we are basing this on legacy thinking and archaic governance systems that are not appropriate to deal with the compounding rate of innovation in society. Decisions that take years in government to solve problems are many times, many steps behind – as the problems they set out to deal with have been replaced by new ones that are creating during the long, slow process of legislation.
We need to rethink how we govern and how the technology of Blockchain can help us govern better.
We help support aspiring Blockchain parties across Europe as well as act as a central hub for Blockchain parties who are already contenting in elections across the continent. Not only do we provide software solutions from various partners in the Blockchain software ecosystem, but we also provide direction and organisational skills to help new Blockchain political parties enable themselves to disseminate knowledge to the populace on the advantages of Blockchain theory and technology in the realm of politics.
WE SUPPLY BLOCKCHAIN SOFTWARE TO HELP BUILD YOUR PARTY.
WE HELP YOU IDENTIFY FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES AND CREATE A WINNING STRATEGY THAT WILL BRING ATTENTION TO YOUR PARTY!
WE PROVIDE A CENTRAL STATION FOR ALL THINGS BLOCKCHAIN FOR POLITICAL MOVEMENTS ACROSS EUROPE
Each Blockchain Party in each European Country can independently work towards the structuring of its state organs, establishing its new form of governance and principles of relations between citizens and institutions. A common open source Blockchain platform can regulate the protocols for confirming and recording data in the registries of governments, provides templates of basic smart laws and supports their adoption and implementation mechanism.
In a distant future, eventually all national laws, whose subjects are the objects listed in the Blockchain registries, can be transferred into smart law format. Smart laws are directly effective laws. Implementing them does not require intermediaries or regulatory authorities. Amendments and changes made to them take effect immediately. Many of the functions of government bodies – such as registration of civil status (birth, marriage, and divorce), taxation, regulation of financial and business relations and many others – are automatically performed and controlled by smart laws on the Blockchain.
For voting – citizens can be reliably identified, thus simplifying election procedures – special smart laws prescribe the period and conditions of elections, accept applications from candidates, launch the voting procedure and count the votes. Voting by means of electronic keys is quick and incurs minimum cost. Voting results, that are stored in the blockchain, can hardly be tampered with.
The Blockchain system keeps all medical records, medical recommendations, diagnoses, etc. of each person, while maintaining anonymity of data. Because of this, each person can receive effective treatment anywhere in the world. At the same time, medical science and pharmacology obtain unique statistical information that would take diagnosis and prescription of treatment to an entirely new level.
Keeping records of the income and medical data of citizens would allow the government, or more precisely, a special smart law, to optimally implement social support in the form of disability pensions, various allowances and benefits. The state pension system is also implemented on the basis of smart laws, which automatically allocates social tax, calculates pensions and starts paying them when the citizen reaches a retirement age.
The Blockchain is a complete tool for effective business operations as it contains a common structure of registries (companies, products, licenses, etc.), whose objects are used when drawing up smart contracts. The smart law system secures automatic deduction of taxes, customs duties and other charges.
Smart laws and smart contracts can function efficiently only if maximum number of registries is transferred to the Blockchain platform: registries of natural persons and legal entities, of property, of copyrights, inventions, etc. Needless to say that Blockchain technology would greatly enhance registry security against manipulation and fraud.
All of a countries’ laws, whose subjects are the objects listed in the Blockchain registries, are transferred into smart law format. Smart laws are laws that are created directly and effectively – and implementing them does not require intermediaries or regulatory authorities. Amendments and changes made to them take effect immediately.
For a Nation to join a common Blockchain financial platform, it needs to first open accounts for all individuals and legal entities in its Central Bank. From this point onwards, all financial transactions – from buying of goods in the shop to execution of state budget – will be conducted under the control of smart laws. Any financial obligations (repayment of loan, insurance payout, payment of bills) are secured via smart contracts and are executed automatically. The Blockchain protocols easily and reliably implement p2p lending procedures.
