who we are

We are developers, artists, entrepreneurs, writers, and activists who share a community-driven vision for a new, distributed web built on Holochain. We believe dWeb design based on portable reputation can retain the benefits of today's web while avoiding its corporate siloes, non-existent data ethics, and general creepiness.

Sacred Capital is the network that has been developing the architecture for the reputation interchange over the last many years, with the intention to create an economy that subordinates money to the actual substance of social relations and deeds fulfilled. With Sacred Capital's reputation interchange, the micro-networks we call Neighbourhoods can interact with and discover each other through a pioneering, "web of trust" style standard for p2p verification of (inter)personal data across social spaces.
