We are building platforms and protocols necessary for an open source economy. This requires new technology capacities which need to function in a non-monopolizable manner.
* Open Identity: Create, manage and own your identity in a trustworthy manner, independent of any central authority.
* Open Rules: Know the rules of any currency you participate in and see when they change.
* Open Transport: A protocol to enable a participant to transact with any other participant and a currency to interact with any other currency.
* Open Data: The ability to share, decentralize and distribute data (like your account balance) and ensure its integrity and privacy… also, to allow you to be a reliable authority of your own data. (You can represent your own accounts, and I can validate your data.)
