About the Event

Democracy Earth, a 501(c)(3) foundation, is building a decentralized, open-source voting protocol that allows citizens to securely and anonymously vote. Founded in 2015, Democracy Earth is a Y Combinator backed startup led by Santiago Siri that intends to construct a liquid democracy platform where citizens can vote for elected officials and laws. Democracy Earth’s inspiration stems from Siri and his co-founders running for a seat on the city council in Buenos Aires. Democracy Earth’s Sovereign platform allows anonymity to users, which will help eliminate voter suppression in democracies. Democracy Earth is currently planning a token sale for April. Siri will be speaking at Boston College about Democracy Earth and his thoughts on blockchain technology.
