Who We Are

We are researchers, policy makers, compliance specialists, good governance consultants and risk management advisors advocating financial inclusion and financial freedom on public blockchains.

Community Values

An expression of community values, dynamically constituted into an informal statement of community vision and mission, should reflect a rejection of unfairness and an insistence on essential equality.

Also, a respect for individual integrity and dignity should be included in this community-wide expression.

The adopted vision and mission should be clear enough to prevent unconscionability and must deter any behavior that is incompatible to the honest, reasonable, mutually beneficial commercial relations between or amongst the members of the community.

Social Theories, Ideological Foundation

Public blockchains are considered as “commons”.  Such that, the social theory of the Tragedy of the Commons by Garrett Hardin should heavily influence the structure of the risk management framework that will govern the operations of any public blockchain.

In addition, the works of Elinor Ostrom, winner of 2009 Nobel Memorial prize in Economic Sciences and author of the book “Governing the Commons“, should gave confidence to any blockchain community that it can successfully self-rule and that its public blockchain is suitable tool for Social Enterprising.

Social Enterprising Advocacy

A community should adopt principles that will preach the use of commercial strategies that maximize the improvements in financial, social and environmental well-being of its members and external stakeholders of its public blockchain.

Good Governance Seal

A community should show its commitment to a transparent decision-making and strong desire to implement the decisions made from said process.

In other words, it is a leaning for good governance, a framework that is:

a. participatory,

b. consensus oriented,

c. accountable,

d. transparent,

e. responsive,

f. equitable and inclusive, and

g. effective and efficient.

Risk Management Standards

Risk Management System should build a unifying culture, the Risk Culture. This is very important for a community that is composed of anonymous members spread all over the world with different languages, status in life, experiences, and business culture.

A sound risk culture delineates the different roles each member of the Community should play and what are the related expectations.
