Democracy Earth Foundation was founded by Santiago Siri, the technical lead for the open source Sovereign software project. Siri, who is also a World Economic Forum member, co-founded the Partido de la Red political party of Argentina and DemocracyOS. His book, “Hacktivismo” was published by Random House in 2015. Siri’s Democracy Earth co-founder, Pia Mancini, delivered the popular TED Talk “Democracy for the Internet Age” garnering more than 1.2 million views.
“We’re bringing democracy into the digital age, for any size organization or institution, anywhere in the world.” - Santiago Siri, founder and CEO, Democracy Earth Foundation
With its Sovereign voting platform built on public ledger technology, Democracy Earth Foundation enables democracy to decentralize for greater legitimacy and security in the digital age. The “vote” token enables decision-making with cryptographically induced equality, with utilities that form the basis for a new model of personal sovereignty.
Democracy Earth Foundation confirms it has retained legal services for a future token sale.
