When the people have the power to voluntarily and transparently contribute funds towards what they actually believe in, the opportunity for coercive systems to manifest becomes exponentially more difficult over time.
Souq is built on the principles of voluntaryism and has the potential to transform old and inefficient public works projects with something built for and by us. Imagine geo-tagging a pothole on your way to work and it being fixed by the time you get home. Souq has the potential to make us question why we ever dealt with things like potholes in the first place, and because it is built on Blockstack’s decentralized internet it can become heirloom software that we can pass down to our grandchildren.
Souq enables groups to transparently accumulate funds for projects. This empowers decentralized, self governing organizations to tackle large projects with a minimum of trust between the members. Souq, and its decentralized governance and funding model is the beginning of fulfilling the promise of the Blockchain and other decentralized technologies.
