What is The Wellbeing Protocol?
The Wellbeing Protocol is an open source, not-for-profit organisation working to support communities to become more self-determining; empowering rangatiratanga and disempowering dependency on the state.
We believe that by leveraging new technology and crypto-economic design patterns, localised economic communities, organised around values and principles the communities themselves determine, can become self-sustaining.
Our near term goal is to work in partnership with a community to support the development of an enduring, sustainably-funded localised economic community. You can learn more about these concepts and our vision in our White Paper.
We are a core group of values-aligned individuals with diverse expertise and lived experience based in Aotearoa New Zealand.
We are in the process of forming a DAO-like organisation known as a DisCO. A DisCO (Distributed Cooperative Organisation) is an organisational model for cooperative groups that combines ideas and practices from cooperativism, the commons, P2P and feminist economics.
It aims to prototype new and radical forms of ownership, governance, entrepreneurship, and value accounting meant to counteract pervasive economic inequality, and offers a human-oriented alternative to the aims and outcomes of DAOs (Decentralised Autonomous Organisations).
The core team is in the process of creating our values and principles. These will form the basis of our organisation's founding constitution.
We have 4 streams of work underway
