The goal of Status is widespread adoption of the decentralized web. It’s no small feat and we identified our guiding lights throughout the way -  a set of ideas and principles that act as tools. Tools for thinking, for communication, and for decentralized decision making, and that help us staying true to ourselves when - inevitably - dealing with daily challenges and confusion.

We spent several weeks, if not months, to collectively compile a first draft of the things we believe in:

  • Liberty - the sovereignty of individuals.
  • Censorship Resistance - free flow of information.
  • Security - guaranteed by new security methods and technologies.
  • Privacy - the power to selectively reveal oneself to the world.
  • Transparency - no border between our core contributors and our community.Openness - the software we create is a public good.
  • Decentralization - maximizing the number of individuals who have control.
  • Inclusivity -  ease of use, but also socially - by permissionless participation, investing in education, and more.
  • Continuance -  exist and improve, without the stewardship of a single entity.
  • Resourcefulness - fight bureaucracy and inefficiencies within the organization.
