“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
-Buckminster Fuller

Why?


Because Canada is at a tipping point.


The government system under which Canadians are living is broken, democracy is under attack and our charter of rights and freedoms is not enforced. 


Instead of fighting the system or trying to fix it from within, with Canadao we seek create new systems that can render the current one obsolete. 


This fundraiser is to seed fund the design and implementation of these new systems.


This is also a challenge to innovators in Canada and around the world to start developing and implementing new governance models that are of the people, by the people and for the people. Systems that are radically transparent, and have accountability and responsibility coded within them.


DAOs


A new type of technology has emerged called DAOs, which stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organizations.


This technology is a tool that helps people work together to make decisions, submit proposals, oversee treasuries, and direct funding. It all happens in a decentralized environment where all actions and interactions are recorded on a blockchain ledger. The benefit of this is that it’s radically transparent and accountable. 


We envision a future Canada where, instead of the small group of parliamentarians, all Canadian are able to vote on proposals, submit proposals and track all spending. This is what’s called open direct-democracy.


Next Steps


The time is now. We have an opportunity to create a new system that is of the people, by the people & for the people. A system that serves the interests of Canadians and puts the people back in charge of our country, our resources, and our wealth. 

We Need Your Help


We can build this new model that makes the existing one obsolete. When Canadians have a way to participate in our democracy, in government spending, and in program funding by voting, we can enter this new golden age of Canada and reclaim our title as the "true north strong and free."


Proceeds from this campaign will be allocated in trust to Kyle Kemper to fund the DAO and be allocated for spending by its participants.
