Aragon

    We believe that the fate of humanity will be decided at the frontier of technological innovation.

    We will either see technology lead to a more free, open, and fair society or reinforce a global regime of centralized control, surveillance, and oppression. Our fear is that without a global, conscious, and concerted effort, the outlook is incredibly bleak.

    The Internet has opened the doors for universal, cross-border, and non-violent collaborative effort to fight for our freedom.

    However, the Internet has also opened the doors for global surveillance and manipulation.

    We believe humankind should use technology as a liberating tool to unleash all the goodwill and creativity of our species, rather than as a tool to enslave and take advantage of one another.

    Thus, Aragon is a fight for freedom. Aragon empowers freedom by creating liberating tools that leverage decentralized technologies.

    We are committed to

    Building organizational forms that defend self-sovereignty — where a user can always exercise choice, either by participating or exiting.

    We are committed to

    Creating collaboration mechanisms in which violence is not only disincentivized, but impossible.

    We are committed to

    Decentralizing power in order to dismantle unjustified power — which usually springs from centralization.

    We are committed to

    The creation of long-term value versus short-term profit — which in turn, advances sustainability.

    We are committed to

    A world in which every person can participate in these new organizational structures.

    Decentralized technologies provide users unparalleled power to transact and interact with a level of security never seen before. Thanks to cryptography and economic incentives, users can now own truly sovereign assets, create fully sovereign entities, and build truly sovereign identities.

    They solidify freedoms that cannot be taken away, not even by actors with sizeable resources. This tectonic shift requires a new method for organizing these sovereign individuals: decentralized organizations.

    Decentralized organizations change our relationship with governance: from something that is imposed upon us by others, into something we choose to opt into. Where we are equally serving and served, rather than just serving.

    Building tools to create and manage decentralized organizations will unleash a Cambrian explosion of new governance forms, and the competition among them will raise the bar globally.

    It will finally allow us to experiment with governance at the speed of software.
