For the longest time, the technology-forward community surrounding the æternity blockchain has been focusing on supporting decentralized open-source platform solutions, empowering individuals and communities to take control of their identity, assets, and data.
The æternity community envisages an æcosystem, and a future, where humanity has the freedom to be in control of its identity, assets, and data. This clear vision resonates perfectly with the community values of Freedom, Accountability, Innovation, and Respect. And empowers all to strive toward its mission to empower everyone to achieve more by providing a truly decentralized open-source platform.
Freedom is, first and foremost, what the æternity community is all about. Freedom encourages innovation and creativity, and by fostering an environment where individuals feel free to express their ideas, engage in critical thinking, and pursue exercising their democratic rights — the entire society benefits and advances. Recognizing that personal responsibility promotes diversity and inclusion, the æternity community empowers its contributors to take ownership of their actions and outcomes.
Accountability is a fundamental second pillar of the æternity community. Emphasizing the importance of individual responsibility, the community encourages all contributors and partners to be accountable for their decisions and behaviors. This approach ensures that all actions are made in the community’s best interest, fostering a culture of transparency and trust.
Innovation is a driving force within the æternity æcosystem and its interconnected communities. The æternity community values creativity and critical thinking as catalysts for progress, and it seeks to stimulate entrepreneurship and foster an entrepreneurial spirit. Believing that innovation can improve the world, the community inspires its contributors to be imaginative, think outside the box, and continually strive for improvement.
Respect is the final core value every contributor of the æternity æcosystem upholds. Moreover, all community interactions are filled with kindness, empathy, and compassion, and everyone is treated with dignity and autonomy. In doing so, an environment where all can thrive — regardless of race, gender, religion, or background — is fostered. Oppression and coercion have no place within the æternity community and the wider æcosystem.
Ultimately, to strive towards reaching a world where the vision of the æternity community is realized while respecting all of its core values, a clear mission presents itself. This mission aligns with the belief that everyone should have equal access to the instruments and assets they need to succeed, regardless of where they are or their socioeconomic status. The æternity blockchain, as an open-source platform, enables developers to create scalable, secure, and decentralized applications, fostering freedom, progress, and creativity.
æcosystem’s commitment to empowering every person in the world is more than just words — it is a steadfast pledge to stand to the community and all people everywhere. By providing a platform that promotes innovation, imagination, and individual responsibility, while ensuring respect and kindness, the æternity community is dedicated to fulfilling its mission. Only in this fashion, working together, working FAIR, will create a world where everyone has complete and total control over their identity, assets, and data — over who they are and what they stand for.
Where freedom meets innovation is not just a slogan — it is a commitment to a future where all thrive, and none are left behind. A future in which all can achieve more — a future to last for æternity.
