“Identity is the most fragile component of any system out there.”
- Santiago Siri
In order to advance democracy in the information age, there needs to be a development of technology capable of deploying democracy wherever there is an internet connection and that is one of the strongest arguments for building these systems on the blockchain.
However, to establish a highly functioning decentralized network capable of managing and executing voting in a fraud and manipulation-proof way, creating sybil-resistant (duplicate resistant), AI resistant and privacy preserving solutions are key.
In a now well-known speech at the Web3 conference in Berlin, 2019, Edward Snowden noted that identity is one of the key vulnerabilities exploited across all systems. What is even more important is that in order to bypass this, a key differentiation needs to be made between creating systems for verifying identities and verifying the right to use a technology.
Proof of Humanity enables the creation of social blockchains, allowing the creation of efficient democratic mechanisms, universal basic income, portable credits and many other wild social ideas.
