Our vision is to align local non-profits (in Washington state to start) that focus on bettering the lives of communities of color to partner with us in providing requirements for building new applications, known as Social Change Platforms. This will be done using the latest in blockchain and digital identity technologies via a revolutionary public sector-funded Tax Investment Platform and Blockchain Infrastructure Program that will completely transform our civic involvement processes as well as help to create billions in generational wealth for communities of color.

NOTE: I am looking for "young stars" in the Seattle area who want to learn about this technology and use it to transform their communities and futures in this country; reach out to me if you're interested. Watch this 2-minute video for an intro into Social Change Platforms concept and why it's important.
And check me out on The Day With Trae podcast speaking on Social Change Platforms (9 min. mark).
See this summary for a brief overview on the history of the web, as well as a technical overview of the products we are building: most notably a powerful and extensible DIDaaS (Decentralized Identity as a Service) platform that will empower both individuals and government entities to create a new level of transparency and accountability into nearly every public and private sector process: eliminating waste, fraud and abuse. It will also help level the playing field between consumer and corporate entity, bringing about a much higher level of digital (and thus creative) sovereignty for the individual in the Web3 world. See the Technology section below for more details on our products (Rules Engine, Profile Portability). And check out the brief overview or the technical summary of our initial product offering called TymeBoxx, a social media content consolidation and Generative AI platform being introduced via our Tech Partner Startup called Data Motus. You can also see how it fits into our 3-phase growth plan. This page will also give people a greater understanding of the power of Web 3 and Decentralized Identities.
Click here for an overview of the planned entities we plan to stand up, and how we'll use them to build Social Change Platforms. Also, to learn about the combined initiative of launching Social Change Platforms in Seattle and a non-profit partner entity called Black Lives Lead, see this One-Page Overview. You can also view this summary on the vision for having Black Lives Lead be out front on the community outreach effort and its commitment to women of color. Here you can find the Problem Statement, from DIDs to Social Change Platforms and Proof of Concept: DIDs and Verifiable Credentials one-pagers for a startup workshop held in Seattle recently. Also of note is to check out Catalyst 2030 and how this tech will help; see my detailed deck. Also, see this page on how we'll grow these services across the country.
There needs to be a serious conversation around policing in this country and how it is harming communities of color. The Web3 world we are about to move into offers us the ability to have that conversation, one based on building a new level of transparency and accountability in critically important public sector-facing services like policing. The high-level overview presented here is just that; an overview to show people what's possible in this new world and how we can transform the conversation of policing in America. We'll work with both the police and the local community to build a 100% right-fit solution in every city that it's deployed, even turning it into a product that can be owned by the people, earning generational wealth as it's sold all around the world. Click on the APP Intro below to see the design ideas for the Accountable Policing Platform as well as the tech intro, app rollout, ownership and revenue-sharing models. Contact us for feedback or if you're interested in building this application for your community.APP: Introduction
The following info outlines the services and future products we will be releasing:
1) Decentralized Identity as a Service (DIDaaS) for web3 services; backwards compatibility to web2 platforms
2) Rules Engine as a Service (REaaS); import text as smart contracts at assembly level, inserted into your DID
3) Data scraping functionality (Twitter to start) for DID insertion and profile portability (platform to platform).
The transparency and accountability of data life cycles within the blockchain, using open-source technology; the foundation upon which you build the Social Change Platforms.
Data protection laws for citizens which codifies their rights under the law; can also include digital asset legislation, similar to the state of Wyoming (i.e., SPDIs, certificate stock tokens).
Build data-privacy law-compliant digital identities, codifying the law statutes into your identity, thus empowering you digitally and securing your digital rights, via ETH-based smart contracts.
With platforms like the Accountable Policing Platform, Pandemic Response App, Election Reform App, Physical Health Data Marketplace and more, the increased transparency and accountability in these socio-economic and political platforms can help to eliminate racism, discrimination, waste, fraud and abuse in several areas of their lives; including the financial sector (and by extension the FIRE sectors; top determinants in wealth generation). - Public Sector-based Generational Wealth via SWFs: through offering the many public sector-based Social Change Platforms via state-based buildout, the platforms can be resold to other states and nations that will generate significant wealth for the owners (the users / citizens, through issuance of certificate stock tokens), on the order of hundreds of billions of dollars (or stablecoin / crypto-based assets), when at full-sprint maturity.
Within the private sector we will eventually be able to empower the user to take control of the data monetization market; through their data privacy-law compliant DIDs THEY will become the gatekeepers of their own data, effectively turning off the money spicket to corporations and be able to self-monetize on all your own data (the data monetization business is projected to reach over $1 trillion / yr. by 2026). The monetization opportunities will eventually fall to the individual in our many data marketplaces we'll create; allowing for users to trade their data for discounts, advanced services or straight monetization opportunities via micro transactions on the blockchain. This is one of our end goals we'd like to achieve for every citizen.
One other important point associated to DIDs to consider - especially ones built on the Decentralized Identity platform (i.e. running on an open, public, permissionless network that's blockchain agnostic) with no special tokens or trusted validators required - is the ability to lift up and port your DID profile (personal profile and platform-specific data) from one platform to another; thus greatly lowering the entry and exit criteria across applications, and vastly improving a user's power on the web and overall control of their digital lives (even introducing a new monetization market for profile portability; platforms competing over your profiles / offering better services, more transparency than a competitor; a race to the top, not the bottom).
This book is meant to serve two key purposes:
One is to tell a bit of my personal story of my travels and crazy antics to show how we are all connected, and for you to have a good laugh (at my expense).
The other is to introduce the technology and ideas behind building Social Change Platforms that I feel can transform societies in the US and around the world, and lift up communities of color and those that feel marginalized in some way.
Both topics may seem unrelated, but they share a common thread; one of universal concepts we all share. For our everyday interactions with others, it's simply being able to be oneself and realizing your full potential by being able to be friends with, learn from, share ideas with and even love anyone from anywhere on this earth. For the technology and Social Change Platforms side of things, it's the universal concepts I think we all share of wanting to have more control over one's life through greater digital autonomy from large corporations, along with wanting to instill a greater level of transparency and accountability in all of the political and socio-economic systems we are forced to interact with on a daily basis.
It's also one man's attempt to rise above his personal struggles and connect with others in a whole new way. My hope is that others see this platform as that path to connect with others as well - in what I feel can be the most rewarding and exciting way possible.
An introduction of the book can be downloaded now for free below. Once the full book is done, it will also be available for free download, with the opportunity to donate whatever amount of money (or crypto) you feel the book is worth.
At around that same time, you'll also be able to make an investment into our efforts with a portion of your funds, which will give you an opportunity to try out the technology via our Digital Identity service. The funds you invest will then be managed in the blockchain, completely open and visible to everyone, and released for buildout of these Social Change Platform applications - but only when you the community decides to do so, by simple majority vote. Details of that process can be found in the book intro below.
Once the business takes off, we'll offer a range of revenue-sharing and ownership services, which will be unlike any other application or company in the world. It will provide a template on how to build, design and own community-based applications that benefit its user base and helps create generational wealth on a grand scale, unlike any other service available to the public. For a quick summary on the services we plan to launch, please download the book intro below.
My hope is everyone finds something of use and meaning within this book. This of course is a heavily biased view, but I feel that there's nothing more important than this work - lifting up our fellow man to the point that we can reconstruct all our socio-economic and political infrastructures to be eliminated of waste, fraud, abuse or discrimination of any kind, which can lead to more transparent and accountable democracies around the world and even save our planet - what can be more important than that? My hope is you feel the same way.
