How to Build Stable & Sustainable Democratic Crypto-Institutions?

< Back

Successful democratic institutions do not immediately start with democratic elections. Free and fair elections are not possible without the institutional structures and rules that are necessary to ensure the integrity of election results. This is why all successful democratic institutions since the Glorious Revolution in 1688 have generally been implemented in the following order, which is the order that the Gini Platform is being implemented:

1. A constitution or Bill of Rights to protect the people from government and institutional tyranny (see the Gini Bill of Rights);

2. the rule of law in the form of clearly defined, objective, transparent and nonpartisan rules and protocols (see the Gini Trust Protocol);

3. the separation of powers in the form of institutional structures to enforce the rule of law (see the Ecosystem Stability Mechanism and Value Streams System);

4. democratic elections to measure the authentic preferences and needs of the community (see the Gini Community Governance System).

This is the order in which we are implementing the Gini Platform. However, we solicit feedback from all Gini stakeholders throughout the implementation process to ensure that the systems and features that we implement are consistent with the democratic will of our community even before we turn on the official democratic governance process indicated in step four above.

This summary of our implementation process should help to illustrate the deep attention to detail, respect for egalitarian principles and authentic democratic governance that we are engineering into every aspect of the Gini Platform.
