Welcoming in the Era of Decentralized Cooperation
DCF advocates for new mechanisms for human cooperation built from secure computing, cryptography, and distributed systems.
“Blockchain provides solutions for cooperation problems while maintaining commons-type benefits of institutional governance.” --Jason Potts
“We want to see more cooperation in the world. Smart contracts are an incredibly powerful tool for helping that happen.” --Dean Tribble
“We built Cosmos for interoperability specifically to expand cooperation, in contrast with blockchains being in standalone silos.” —Zaki Manian

As time passes, we will expand our purview to provide support for bringing that technological foundation to other chains, and even expanding to non-blockchain ecosystems.
