Through my blockchain startup I intend to build the most sophisticated digital tools to put at the service of the democracy movement in Russia. The Russian people have to take the lead. The Russian diaspora has to take the lead. I did similar work before Facebook with barely a blog and a mailing list hosted for free by Google. But then we also wrote before computers. It will not hurt to have the tools I intend to build.
Liberty is at risk in the United States. The same tools could be used to take this country to a new Philadelphia. Thomas Jefferson expected a constituent assembly every 30 years or so. It has been way more than 30 years.
Racism is fascism. It is the opposite of liberty.
The same tools will neutralize the surveillance state that is China. But the proof is in the pudding. The work of liberty will take China back to a 10% growth rate, clean energy powered. Perhaps the CCP needs to be broken up like AT&T. Xi is Brezhnev. Perhaps there is an emerging figure in the Chinese Communist Party who successfully pushes the case for political reform.
The same digital tools will turn Saudi Arabia into a republic. The smart monarchies in the Gulf will volunteer to become constitutional monarchies. The not so smart ones will pave the way for repubics.
The same digital tools will take e-Estonia like government services to every poor, nascent democracy on the planet and help build the institutions of democracy.
Voting should be eezy peezy. Noone should be without a digital identity that they can take to the bank that resides on their phones.
Facebook and Twitter did not topple Hosni Mubarak in Egypt. The people did. Facebook and Twitter were just digital tools.

CZ. @cz_binance Let's team up on Africa. Invest in my blockchain startup, like Yahoo invested in Alibaba. Crypto trading can not be the starting point for Africa. So you are not it.— Paramendra Kumar Bhagat (@paramendra) July 6, 2022
Excited to announce my next adventure with @PanteraCapital. Bear markets are great times to focus on what needs to be built. I write about how I’m fascinated by the concepts of open source money and open source Disney, and why I’m joining Pantera. https://t.co/gBQMzUoHXk— Chia Jeng Yang (@chiajy2000) July 5, 2022
