Themisian Courts, a decentralized fact-checking platform where objective truth can emerge. | Posted 2 months, 1 week ago
Hello Crowdholders, Today we would love to introduce you to Themisia Courts, the judicial system that provides the backbone of the Themisia virtual nation, and a free resource for anyone in the world wanting to arbitrate a disagreement or investigate a public of private matter.   The Problem Themisia will establish itself by solving a huge problem that is getting progressively worse. Most suffering in the world is the result of conflict. Most conflict comes from the inability to agree on what is true. Courts—the system by which disputes are traditionally arbitrated and a consensus on truth reached—are too slow, expensive and inaccessible for the fast paced social media world where the court of public opinion is instant, free and open to all.   The Solution The first public (owned and governed by Themisian citizens) application provides the heart and centrestone for the virtual nation: a social media court system where investigative cases can be created, evidence submitted, facts verified, and conclusions trusted and stored in a searchable blockchain database for use in future cases, effectively creating the world first decentralized fact-checking market. Citizens will be incentivized to act honestly (submitting good faith evidence or challenges to fact-claims) since if successive citizens disprove their evidence, their reputation will be damaged, reducing their influence and status in the Themisian nation. Such an investigation and truth discovery platform has many monetization use cases… one is that news organizations could crowdsource some or all of their investigative processes by creating a case on their particular subject area and placing a bounty. All verified facts and evidence then pays out those citizens from that bounty.   Themisians Being a Themisian citizen is more than just being a user or having an account in an application. A Themisian is someone who believes in the values of the enlightenment. They value truth, justice and liberty. They understand that liberty is impossible without justice, and justice is impossible without truth. As they contribute to the Themisian court system, they bring more truth into the world, and as a consequence, more justice and liberty. To be a Themisian is to be a guardian of liberal democracy.   We Welcome Your Feedback We spent 1.5 years working on our 60k+ word whitepaper, so the information here and on themisia.org is only a small fraction of the grand scope of the entire virtual nation. To help us finalise the whitepaper, though, we would very much appreciate your feedback with the aspects of the project that we have made public. Go to our Court section of our website to learn more about the Themisia Courts and then please leave your comment below answering all of the questions below:   What are your first impressions of the Themisia Courts?   Could you see yourself contributing evidence to a public court system, and/or creating investigation cases yourself?   Thank you for taking the time to review the project and we are looking forward to hearing your feedback.   The Themisia team www.themisia.org

Introducing Themisia, a democratic virtual nation building the 'Internet of Facts' | Posted 2 months, 4 weeks ago
Hello Crowdholders, Today we would love to introduce you to Themisia, a virtual nation founded on the enightenment principles of liberal democracy. While the project has been two years in the making, we are still very early stage and are still building the founding team and board of advisors as we progress towards being ready to begin development.   Problem Our lives are becoming progressively more dependent on powerful technologies that expand our ability to communicate, provide economic value to the world, and gain social status. We are, however, surrendering the fundamental rights recognised by our local liberal democracies in order to adhere to the "Terms of Service" of the privately owned platforms. In a future world where the vast majority of our lives will be spent within these privately owned digital spaces, our repuations, livelihood and social belonging will be entirely subject to Terms of Service that offer no protections against arbitrary seizure and destruction of accounts and content, and no fair and impartial trial if accused of breaking rules. We are sleep walking into what is effectively an authoritarian cyber nation.   Solution Themisia is a vision for a virtual nation founded on the principles of liberal democracy, with every citizen protected by a constitution that recognises one's fundamental rights to life (perpetual digital identity), liberty (freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to a fair trial, innocence before proven guilty, etc) and private property (your profile, accounts, uploaded content, record of followers, likes, etc). These rights are protected by a robust, decentralized and autonomous court system. Entrepreneurs who build platforms and businesses within Themisia will be able to offer to their users fundamental rights that other platforms cannot, and then have all serious user arbitration delegated to the Themisian courts, removing a huge weight of the shoulders of entrepreneurs who do not want to play dictator.   Themisians Being a Themisian citizen is more than just being a user or having an account in an application.

Themisia Tokenomics, giving citizens equal opportunity to invest their capital. | Posted 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Hello Crowdholders, Today we would love to introduce you Themisia Tokenmics, the token system that provides the lifeblood of the economy and reputation system of the Themisia virtual nation.   The Problem The greatest economic challenge facing a world striving for a fairer society is the Pareto principle; a natural economic law that stipulates the inevitability of extreme inequality. It is commonly referred to in popular culture as the 80/20 rule where, as an example, 80% of effects are caused by only 20% of one’s actions. In economics it is the rule that means even if everyone starts with exactly the same amount of money, through hard work, talent, competence, and the impact of chance—good or bad luck—the money will end up being exponentially distributed in the hands of a very small percentage of individuals. The top 20% will have more than the top 80%. The top 20% of that top group will have more than the remaining 80%. And again, the top 20% of that upper echelon will have more than the remaining 80%, and so on, until you’re looking at the super rich in the top 1% of the top 1%.   The Solution Any creator who has a desire to create value within the Themisia economy can tokenize that value—or the potential of that future value—in the form of a custom branded and named fixed supply token called Community Shares. Community Shares represent the revenue distribution for whatever the creator specifies, from a specific product or service, a company or brand that has a variety of products or services, or a perhaps even Community Shares that represent himself, and therefore all of the value that he or she will create in the Themisia economy. As well as giving any value producer the ability to crowdfund their projects or raise capital at any time by selling some of their Community Shares, it also empowers Themisians with the ability to invest in any project, from the largest, to the very smallest, and in so doing, have access to investments no matter where they are on the economic spectrum.   Themisia Shares The national currency for Themisia is Kingsilver, a stablecoin backed by real precious metals stored in vaults, mainly gold, silver and platinum. Every Kingsilver transaction incurs a small fee which is distributed to owners of a fixed supply token called Themisia Shares, and will be tradable on cryptocurrency exchanges, including Themisia's own Kingsilver Exchange. As the economy grows, so will the earning performance, and subsequent price of, the Themisia Shares token, making it the primary investment vehicle for investors who believe in the future of Themisia.   We Welcome Your Feedback We spent 1.5 years working on our 60k+ word whitepaper, so the information here and on themisia.org is only a small fraction of the grand scope of the entire virtual nation. To help us finalise the whitepaper, though, we would very much appreciate your feedback with the aspects of the project that we have made public. Please answer the following questions. What are your first impressions of Themisia's tokenomics?   Do you understand how all value in the economy can be 'securitized' with 'Community Shares'?   You can go to our introductory task to learn even more about Themisia.   Thank you for taking the time to review the project and we are looking forward to hearing your feedback.   The Themisia team www.themisia.org
