Your digital identity, owned only by you.

Make DAO communities with other Citizens
What Is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO)?
A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) is an emerging form of legal structure that has no central governing body and whose members share a common goal to act in the best interest of the entity. Popularized through cryptocurrency enthusiasts and blockchain technology, DAOs are used to make decisions in a bottom-up management approach.
You can rent a Citizen's Island (membership subscription) with all tools and services installed, or install and use the building blocks, tools and services on your own computer hardware.
The main building block is an open source virtual machine environment. We offer tools and services for chat, collaboration, zoom, telephony, decentralized data storage, crypto wallet, DAOs and more.

CI = DaaS + DAO
building inclusive communities with trusted digital identities.
CI offers virtual computers, Citizen’s Islands and Company’s Islands, for rent.
Two steps towards inclusive communities:
Step one: isolate yourself from the trustless internet, obtain a trusted digital space, rent an Island.
Step two: establish inclusive communities with other Islands.
With your trusted digital space, your Island, you can build trusted digital communities.
What is a Citizen’s Island, what is a Company's Island?
A Citizen’s Island is a remote computer, a virtual desktop; only keyboard- and mouse signals are sent from your device to your Island, leaving device-malware behind. Every time you logon to your island, a fresh operating system copy is available for you. This makes your Island a secure and trusted place. A Company's Island offers a marketplace for your company's services and products. On your Island, your private remote computer, you have a secure browser, decentralized applications (social media, soft-phone, video conferencing), decentralized data storage, and a wallet for your crypto coins.
What is so special about CI?
IT solutions for remote desktops are almost always proprietary solutions, CI is a robust, secure open source alternative.
Remote desktops for private individuals is new, enabling privacy for everyone.
With such a secure private digital identity, a Citizen'Island or Company's Island, individuals and companies can build or join communities with their own rules and crypto coins. CaaS, Community as a Service.
Due to the remote desktop technology used, it is almost impossible to hack your Island, or to hack your decentralized data. Your Island is free of spyware and any malware, and free of censorship. The safest place for your applications, your crypto coins and your data.
You can access your Island from any device, malware on that device does not enter your Island. Right now you have no control over the security of your device, its operating system, its applications and its spyware. iPhones with built-in backdoors cause a privacy nightmare. Fortunately, with CI you can access your Island from any device, even when it is compromised, freeing your life from vulnerabilities and other security risks. With CI you are in charge of your digital identity and data.
How can we trust CI?
CI is a DAO, a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, a partnership. Small providers will host your Island. When the CI DAO grows, it will have its own computer centers.
What is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO)?
A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) is an emerging form of legal structure. With no central governing body, every member within a DAO typically shares a common goal and attempt to act in the best interest of the entity. Popularized through cryptocurrency enthusiasts and blockchain technology, DAOs are used to make decisions in a bottoms-up management approach.
Who owns the CI DAO organization?
A DAO has no owner, and is ruled by two groups of people, one that makes proposals for the organization, and one that votes on these proposals.
Decentralization does not replace centralization — it merely complements it: A healthy level of centralization gives a project its identity.
The profit of a DAO goes to the DAO itself or to the community. The formation of the CI DAO will be completed after paying back our investors. CI will be ownerless and will be ruled according to a direct democraty model.
You can invest in our CI DAO, or in community DAOs, and you can work for a DAO.
"DAOs are a curious blend of socialism and hyper-capitalism. Socialism, because they’re essentially “employee-owned” like a co-op. Capitalism, because in the incentive-based mechanisms of the free market structure within the DAO, contributors bid on projects and merit is rewarded." DAOs Are the Future of Work
Who has jurisdiction?
A DAO does not fall under any jurisdiction. The data of a Citizen or Company are stored in a decentralized way, spread over many servers in many countries. A Citizen or Company can chose her own jurisdiction.
How can we make inclusive communities? Is every community a separate DAO?
One of the programs on your Island computer is a program to build or join communities. There are several options to search for other Citizens, Companies and communities. For example you can search for Citizens or Companies within a radius of 15 kilometer from your home. In this way local communities can be established. You can find out from which local farmer you can buy your food. You can share best practices about growing your own food. You can chat with community members. Each community can choose its own(DAO) rules, cryptocoin and make or join a marketplace.

Is the CI DAO only about establishing local communities?
Not exclusively. Your Citizen’s Island is your digital identity for the Web3 “open metaverse”. For example consider the gaming people: they want to build their virtual worlds and items and own what they build. Right now they don’t have trust, passion, and the movement of Web3. They can have their Citizen’s Island as their sovereign digital identity. Open Meta video
