Manifesto

Uphold
human rights

Create an open decentralised platform that defends human rights, enables free speech, protects privacy and promotes sovereignty.

Our mission is to empower individuals to achieve their aspirations and create a better future for all, by leveraging innovative decentralised technologies to create a virtual space where freedom, liberty, and human sovereignty are protected, and censorship resistance is ensured.

We believe that a free cyberspace will enable people to innovate and experiment with new forms of human organisation and societal governance, freed from the constraints imposed by centralised institutions and monopolistic tech platforms.

Our existence defends civil liberties and free speech, and aims to gift the world a platform that creates a new bazaar of open, decentralised and permissionless innovation, directly accessible by every individual worldwide.

Our principles

I

Liberty

We believe in the sovereignty of individuals. As a platform that stands for the cause of personal liberty, we aim to maximise social, political, and economic freedoms. This includes being coercion-resistant.

II

Censorship resistance

We enable free flow of information. No content is under surveillance. We abide by the cryptoeconomic design principle of censorship resistance. Even stronger, Status is an agnostic platform for information.

III

Security

We don't compromise on security when building features. We use state-of-the-art technologies, and research new security methods and technologies to make strong security guarantees.

IV

Privacy

Privacy is the power to selectively reveal oneself to the world. For us, it’s essential to protect privacy in both communications and transactions, as well as being a pseudo-anonymous platform. Additionally, we strive to provide the right of total anonymity.

V

Transparency

We strive for complete openness and symmetry of information within the organisation, and have no border between our core contributors and our community. We are frank about our shortcomings, especially when making short-term tradeoffs in service of our long-term goals.

VI

Openness

The software we create is a public good. It is made available via a free and open source licence, for anyone to share, modify and benefit from. We believe in permission-less participation.

VII

Decentralisation

We minimise centralisation across both the software and the organisation itself. In other words, we maximise the number of physical computers composing the network, and maximise the number of individuals who have control over the system(s) we are building.

VIII

Inclusivity

We believe in fair and widespread access to our software, with an emphasis on ease-of-use. This also extends to social inclusivity, permissionless participation, interoperability, and investing in educational efforts.

IX

Continuance

We create software incentivized to continue to exist and improve, without the stewardship of a single entity or any of the current team members.

X

Resourcefulness

We are relentlessly resourceful. As we grow and have ready access to capital, it is our obligation to token holders to fight bureaucracy and inefficiencies within the organisation. This means solving problems in the most effective way possible at lower economic costs (in terms of capital, time and resources).
