UniversalDot Foundation is focused on creating applications for the decentralized internet. Our mission is to enable freedom for each individual to create their own vision of the future. We believe that such a mission can be enabled through the creation of decentralized applications and infrastructure. The aim of these technologies is to enable a post-computing civilization in which each individual is empowered with certain unalienable and universal rights. These universal rights could be described but not limited to the following:
- Personal Identity: the right to create one's own identity.
- Universal Income: the right to income for one's talents and skills.
- Free Association: the right to organize and belong to any group or organization.
