This page's content is very old and very incomplete. I no longer agree with the majority of what was written in the original forum posts. And since the original writings on this seven years ago, there have been a few examples of cryptogov-like protocols and platforms developed, namely BitNation, Horizon State, Consensus, Decred, Backfeed, and Aragon. Since these are already robust fully-featured platforms, they are probably more worth exploring than the content of this page, however, the basic ideas underpinning how decentralized governance ought to happen are still relevant and worth viewing. I may replace this page with lots of content like this.
:: Decentralized Distributed Cryptogov ::
With the recent transition of physical governments to fully online systems like the Estonian government, and gameification of citizenship by China's government, we're seeing a dichotomy emerge whereby online government is split between the borderless & open, and the authoritarian & closed. For the sake of freedom of information and efficient communication and data transfer standards, a base framework of online governance is being developed, a base which much like the cryptocurrency backbone it's being built on, will be open to re-codes and re-compiles, allowing for many distros, akin to the number of altcoins spawned off of bitcoin. Snov is this framework, a fully functioning government system, not just with a voting platform, but a law creation system, an internal communications system, and the ability to make your citizen profile (all personal information including medical records) as open or closed as you want for complete granular control over your privacy. Plenty of other functionality is built in, including but not limited to: automated taxation, it's own internal cryptocurrency as well as instant conversion to any other cryptocurrency, the ability to switch between a hard and soft node, and a polymorphic engine that automatically inserts code and recompiles upon laws being passed that alters the sourcecode of the client itself. This is the first fully decentralized, fully world-distributed, purely democratic government (as discussed here). This can be marketed initially (while in beta) as the largest social expirement ever, as it will technically be that, and upon completion of the project the Earth will have its first global government, with world citizens, that's self- sustaining, and can't be destroyed by any military without also destroying all root servers of the planet. This is not just a gimmick, there is ethical imperative to do this, and many objections and issues raised about this type of governance and online system have been addressed in the previously linked thread here. Other features include systems akin to Vilfredo, Monero + Changelly, and Teleport. The internet is the democratization of information, the invention of the internet marked the first time in history that information could flow frictionlessly. Bitcoin is the democratization of currency, the invention of Bitcoin marked the first time in history that currency could flow frictionlessly. Snov is the democratization of governmental power, Snov will mark the first time in history that governmental power can flow truly frictionlessly. The unity of all three will mark the societal singularity, a point from which we cannot return to older, inferior frameworks. The level of efficiency obtained by such an architecture cannot be matched by anything previously instantiated by humans. This is the march of heady ambition by its own invocation.
