We are an experimental community that establishes physical outposts for humans. They bridge life between localized societies and our decentralized tribe of digital nomads. We call them Bonfires and we keep them alive.
Inhabitants of the Bonfires explore new models of cooperation. They also commit their time and skills to building tools on Mondays and building community on Tuesdays.
The Bonfire is a non-profit concept around which we gather a physical, self-sustaining, open community. Its goal is to push the boundaries of collaboration and independence thanks to experimental economies.
Bonfires are geographically distributed communities, following key principles. In essence, we are a decentralized tribe.
We serve the wider community by building technologies for decentralization, as well as offering a physical space for expression, work, life.
Our vision is to spread bonfires and to keep them alive.
In our model, firekeepers maintain active bonfires, while firestarters spin off new ones.
The bonfire survives through radical self-reliance. Its members must create tangible value to provide for themselves, the community and beyond.
We flourish on our creations and share our abundance externally. To achieve this, we study cryptoeconomics and explore value creation mechanisms such as gifting.
As self-aware artisans, we praise our legacy but we also hack upon it. We leverage consensus algorithms and new forms of association, such as Decentralized Autonomous Organizations, to propel us into the future using a legacy launchpad.
