Technology of the Commons Platform

We aim to harness and develop technology to meet people’s needs, ensuring that they are in line with the value system. We are considering:

  • Secure decentralised web hosting to allow everyone access to the platform safely.
  • Collaborating on mesh networks and other technologies that help people access the internet.
  • Using or developing distributed ledger technology for smart contracts that value and acknowledge different contributions and forms of labour, and new economics that do not use huge amounts of energy. Developing and launching a cryptocurrency that allows for financial inclusion without harming the environment.
  • Collaborating to help communities generate sustainable energy to help access the platform.
  • Creating a circular economy for hardware e.g. computers and mobile phones, so that everyone is able to have the technology they need to access the platform.
  • Collaborating with companies in line with the values to help meet needs.
