The Blockchain Manifesto

  • The Blockchain is an integral part of modern life – a key component in education, communication, collaboration, business, entertainment and society as a whole.
  • The Blockchain is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible.
  • The Blockchain must enrich the lives of individual human beings.
  • Individuals’ security and privacy on the Blockchain are fundamental and must not be treated as optional.
  • Individuals must have the ability to shape the Blockchain and their own experiences on it.
  • The effectiveness of the Blockchain as a public resource depends upon interoperability (protocols, data formats, content), innovation and decentralized participation worldwide.
  • Free and open source software promotes the development of the Blockchain as a public resource.
  • Transparent community-based processes promote participation, accountability and trust.
  • Commercial involvement in the development of the Blockchain brings many benefits; a balance between commercial profit and public benefit is critical.
  • Magnifying the public benefit aspects of the Blockchain is an important goal, worthy of time, attention and commitment.
