Decentralized Governance and Multi-Agent Reputation System Research
Realizing the value in distributed, secure and immutable record keeping and decentralized consensus, industry leaders, multinational corporations, and governments are adopting blockchain technology rapidly. NGOs, non-profits and humanitarian organizations need to do the same to target poverty and scale institutions and legal frameworks to include the billions of people living and working in informal economies.
This project conducts economic and game-theoretic research to build decentralized governance models and incentive platforms in the humanitarian and social impact space. Explore and develop the concept of Hyper-Transparency and non-fungible tokens. Analyze potential socio-economic impacts of blockchains and tokenization of value from the perspective of monetary supply and demand chains, taxation and wealth redistribution.
Contribute theoretical research in order to establish a transparent, scalable, and decentralized social impact and funding platform on the public Ethereum blockchain. Its aim is to bring more transparency and trust to the charitable, humanitarian, non-profit and foreign aid sectors by supporting community and evidence driven investment. Apply findings and conclusions from this research more widely for governance and reputation systems in blockchain ecosystems.
From existential risks, technological unemployment or driverless cars, all driven by cloud-based artificial intelligence, blockchains will become the digital infrastructure underlying all the networks of emerging technologies. Academic institutions need to provide the talent for successful industry partnerships to get blockchain development right. This project aims to do just that by exploring the legal landscape of blockchain-based non-profits. This exploration includes NGOs developing tokens issued on a public blockchain aimed at resolving transaction and transparency matters in development finance and foreign-aid to communicating blockchain knowledge to the general public in an accessible manner.
This project is currently not in need of external funding. The goals of this project’s research stem directly from a need and cooperation with Charity DAO, a not for profit foundation registered in Germany. The foundation is not providing any funding to this project.
