Power in your hands.

A planetary commons of peers.

For everyone, anywhere.

A Declaration of Personal Sovereignty.

The internet transformed how we share culture, work together โ€”and even fall in loveโ€” but governance has remained unchanged for over 200 years. With the rise of open source software and peer to peer networks, political intermediation is no longer necessary. We are building a protocol with smart contracts that allows decentralized governance for any kind of organization.

First, Identity:

What differentiates valid elections from surveys is strong identity validation. We are working with pioneering decentralized protocols for identification, so no single corporation (like  Facebook) or government (think Estonia) owns your credentials. Only you are in control.

Then, Institutions:

Whether it's a club, a student center, your football team, a corporation, a workers union or even a big city: these are all institutions.  For them to be open and democratic, governance rules and membership must be stated under incorruptible technology. See  how the blockchain grants it.

Also, Budgets:

Institutions execute projects:  a collection of tasks that require funds and approval. After you join an organization that meets your interests, pitch projects defining tasks and pricing. Funds are securely stored using bitcoin and granted upon approval.

And finally, Delegations:

In the age of connected societies, voting to have representatives for 4 years is absurd. Peer democracies lets you elect among friends and people you trust. Legitimacy must emerge bottom up rather than top down. It's possible: we've seen open source democracy take off.

This toolkit can generate the basic set of agreements every human organization needs. For the first time in history, no central authority is needed to guarantee proper governance and accountability.

Democracy for the Internet Era.

We are 21st century citizens doing our best to interact with 19th century designed institutions that are based on an information technology of the 15th century. As the world faces unprecedented global challenges, it's time we start asking: What is democracy for the internet era?

From Earth:

The Democracy Earth Foundation is a Y Combinator backed organization working with hackers, thinkers and makers.
We are a 501(c)(3) not for profit in California organized as a network with presence in every continent.

Pioneering Open Source Politics.

It's not just about technology, but also about culture. We lead several initiatives that aim to change the way we understand and exercise our civic rights building open digital tools, political theory and social devices you can use for free.

In 2015 with Random House we published Hacktivismo, sharing our experience building tools for digital democracy. It explores the implications of the internet for participation in the 21st century. (Spanish only, translation coming soon)

We are founding peers of the first political party in the Americas with a digital agenda, Partido de la Red. It had 1.2% of votes for its first election in Buenos Aires on 2013. Learn how to start your own.

We started the development and design of the first open source technology for online voting, DemocracyOS. Today it has 1000+ stars on github and it was localized into 18 languages.
