a movement promoting radical social change

Our Movement aims to promote radical social change by catalyzing the emergence of resilient communities. It is dedicated towards reclaiming, expanding and enriching the commons by producing a wide variety of free and open-source software that benefits the whole of humanity and the substrate we depend upon.

The movement's principal focus is to help transcend the current socioeconomic system that is rapidly debasing the planetary life support system, thus putting humanity on self-terminating trajectory. Specifically, building tools so communities are able to transcend their governance and economics.

Projects

Although the movement is still in its infancy stage, it is already engaged in developing the first project called Our Funding—which is an all-encompassing, distributed & global crowdfunding platform. The prototype is being built using HolochainHolochain is a DLT framework for writing fully distributed peer-to-peer applications. It is free and open-source software built by Metacurrency Project for data storage and integrity and React NativeReact Native is a UI framework for writing native apps. It is free and open-source software built by Facebook for the user interface (UI).

Apart from that, there are a few other ones that are being incubated:

And others that are being ideated include:

Licensing

All projects made by Our Movement will be Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS)free as in speech and beer, and their source code will be licensed under an OSI-approved license.

Funding

Funding for the movement will come from a few platforms that generate economic activity as part of the sharing economy and gift economy. These platforms utilize ‘<1% Transaction Fee’ business modelthis is a temporary measure and the transaction fees will be dropped once the movement becomes sustainable through donations—fully embracing the gift economy, and are wholly owned by a non-profit organization called Our Foundation—which exists solely as a mechanism to institutionally support the movement. Those funds are then used to also develop other projects that don't have a business model.
