We use Distributed Ledger technology to protect community data assets from hacking, corruption, loss, or denial of service by NSSCAs (Nation-State Sponsored Cyber Attacks).

How we use Blockchain

We leverage the two main features of blockchain at the architecture level

  • Strong encryption.
  • Distributed ledger to support immutable contracts.

At the app level, we leverage blockchain to:

  • Protect the user's identity

  • Store poll results as anonymized contracts

  • Digitally signed contracts with elected officials (borrowing from N. Gingrich: "Contract with the Community")

  • Archived digital copies (PDFs) of real legal documents such as agreements, MSAs, licenses, regulatory approval, inspection reports, fees with vendors and local regulatory agencies, utilities, partners, or auditors

  • Archived digital copies of legal agreements with the jurisdiction (city, county, etc.) including non-profit tax returns, distribution of profits or "shares" to the community, derived from the licensing of community-produced content and possibly NFTs

  • Historical chat stream logs or even meeting recordings are candidates for data retention in a blockchain.  For MVP, we use traditional archiving on triple-redundant cloud regions (possibly multicloud) for storing the content and put the checksum of the file and its unique filename and bucket path in the blockchain.
