Blockchain holds the potential to be a powerful accounting system, especially for positive environmental and human impact, things that money has trouble measuring today.

-Why Truly Decentralized Digital Identity is Key

It has become imperative to focus on digital identity because the popular and primary existing identity projects, both blockchain and without, are using a status quo business model that concentrates the value and decision making with few individuals rather than distributing it.

In order to preserve the decentralized capabilities of encrypted digital ledger technologies, Future Culture is currently striving to educate and help facilitate implementation of a digital sovereign identity protocol. If you are interested in joining the working group we will discuss the path forward. Future Culture is a nonprofit partnership on a mission for cooperative evolution.
