NGI-related portfolio (solutions,projects, platforms, etc…) In the last decade, modular open-source technologies and a philosophy of decentralization have developed in parallel. The result is a family of blockchain-native system modules that when combined, form institutions more than the sum of their parts. Imagine: new prosumer governance forms like data unions and distributed energy cooperatives, or market primitives—such as bonding curves—that automate liquidity and provide real time price discovery. ‍ Curve Labs is a team of design interventionists who research and implement these building blocks to create proofs of concept. We engage in the playful, combinational use of different modules to architect institutions that couldn’t exist before. Our goal is to bring to NGI module development capacity for the aforementioned, creating technical and design solutions in the areas of data governance, accreditation (identity), and a new governance architecture for the Open Internet itself.

Other: -- Smart cities, but also "smart forests," that is, forests with self-governance mechanisms that utilize oracle sensor networks. We can imagine "smart-nature" generally.

Do you have any early evidence of your project, platform, that you wish to share? We've blogged about some of our initial work; it's available here: Please check our Github for recent developments.

Which kind of experiments would you like to see funded via Open Calls?

-- Blockchain-based institutional design; e.g. cybernetics and cyber-physical systems. -- Legal hacking. -- Distributed energy, carbon reduction use cases.

GitHub or any other SW community

The 30-months project will push the Next Generation Internet a step further by providing cascade funding to EU-based researchers and innovators in carrying out Next Generation Internet related experiments in collaboration with US research teams.
