Blockchain Commons’ interoperable specifications and reference architecture support a set of four core principles.

  • Independence. Improve user freedom from involuntary oversight and external control.
  • Privacy. Protect against coercion with non-correlation, privacy, and pseudonymity.
  • Resilience. Decrease the likelihood of users losing their funds via any means.
  • Openness. Support open infrastructure to allow developers to create their own applications.

Individual repos describe how specific applications advance the Gordian principles.
