Asgardia's first orbit around the sun is complete. One year ago, Dr. Ashurbeyli announced a vision. Our actual anniversary is the 12th of October, but community events are seen to occur during the entire week of celebration, particularly during the weekends. Here are some thoughts ...

Excellent outline, Nikari Steve Miller :-)
We have to start somewhere!

About your last point on toghetherness... I do believe that the BIGGEST CHALLENGE EVER for Asgardia will not come from outside attacks but from the extreme difficulty to bring to life this essential principle of ...

Whilst I recognise the need for lead representatives and organisations to develop policy and move forward why not be more progressive and use technology at our disposal to make this a true democracy- one citizen one vote and no arcane policy to interfere. Democracy OS have developed some great ...

Asg 9, 01 / Jun 26, 17 20:00 UTC

The tyranny of group think cannot be underestimated. A perfect democracy works best for a tiny group in the same geographic region. Out in space, we'll need a balance between group vote and leadership votes. We'll have to decide what kinda leadership we need aka representative (leader is the ...

he is talking about smart contracts, based on blockchain technology.

We are currently developping a policy app, that might incorporate smart contracts into democradic processes of small communes and possibly companies.
Maybe there is a chance to get people to use it.

Asg 8, 01 / Jun 25, 17 21:26 UTC

An absolute democracy would devolve into tyranny or anarchy pretty quickly I think. Group think isn't always correct and it can easily lead to the 51% to do whatever they want to the 49%.

So I assume you're mainly talking about a constitutional democracy? So we'd be ...

What intrigued me was that Asgardia is a new platform. Open to a variety of things, including technological innovation during its birth and growth. One would have to ask: What can we do to evolve ID, IP, and even voting.

I would have to imply that we ...

The system is designed to prevent and be assigned physically like getting a driver's license. But unlike normal IDs, you actually have extreme protection. More than any government has ever achieved. It speaks levels more than what we have currently.

Jun 24, 01 / Jun 13, 17 09:30 UTC

So, if I'm understanding correctly, your system will handle IDs once they''ll be into Asgardia's DBs, but they can't prevent me to register 2, 3, ..., 50.000 fake ones, right?

Jun 24, 01 / Jun 13, 17 09:30 UTC

Researchers are working on it as we speak, as stated earlier. However, if you are talking about something right now and in the basics and early days of experimentation: I'd go check out https://onename.com/ or similar to see a practical example of blockchain identification.
