The Network State Wiki
Jur is organizing this Wiki to bring awareness and clarity to the Network State movement, and stimulate a constructive, critical discussion on the topic in the Jur Discord community.
The Network State movement is about empowering citizens to experiment with new forms of voluntary social organization. The Network State Wiki is an open-source resource that allows you to learn about the Network State as the concept evolves.
The Network State
In one informal sentence:
A network state is a highly aligned online community with a capacity for collective action that crowdfunds territory around the world and eventually gains diplomatic recognition from pre-existing states.
Here’s a more complex definition that extends that concept and pre-emptively covers many edge cases:
A network state is a social network with a moral innovation, a sense of national consciousness, a recognized founder, a capacity for collective action, an in-person level of civility, an integrated cryptocurrency, a consensual government limited by a social smart contract, an archipelago of crowdfunded physical territories, a virtual capital, and an on-chain census that proves a large enough population, income, and real-estate footprint to attain a measure of diplomatic recognition.
