Bitnation started in July 2014 and hosted the world’s first blockchain marriage, birth certificate, refugee emergency ID, World Citizenship, DBVN Constitution and more. The website proof-of-concept, including the blockchain ID and Public Notary, is used by tens of thousands of Bitnation Citizens and Embassies around the world. Bitnation is the winner of UNESCO’s Netexplo Award 2017, and has been featured by the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, BBC, CNN, WIRED, VICE, TechCrunch, The Economist, Russia Today among many others.

Pangea Arbitration Token (XPAT)

The Pangea Arbitration Token (XPAT) is an ERC20 compatible in-app token for the Pangea Jurisdiction. The XPAT token rewards good reputation and is issued on Pangea when Citizens accumulate non-tradable reputation tokens through creating a contract, successfully completing a contract or resolving a dispute attached to a contract. XPAT is an algorithmic reputation token, an arbitration currency based on performance rather than purchasing power, popularity or attention. The distribution mechanism for XPAT tokens on Pangea is an autonomous agent, Lucy, which will initially launch on Ethereum as a smart contract. This mechanism is blockchain agnostic and can be ported to any viable smart contract platform.

Awards

What People Say About Bitnation

“Bitnation is a very ambitious project. Taking on the government of the nation state on its home field. Challenging it over its core services in free competition. I have a hard time thinking of anything more disruptive and transformative if it delivers on its potential.”

– Rick Falkvinge, Founder of the first Pirate Party

“The prospect of decentralizing, privatizing and personalizing law is one of the brightest hopes of the crypto-technological shift. Bitnation is on the cutting edge of something that will shape our future in beautiful ways.”

– Jeffrey Tucker, Liberty Evangelist

“Can we sustain communities where as much of the association and interaction as possible is voluntary, rather than imposed by the laws and regulations that a varyingly imperfect majority is imposing on everybody else? Bitnation is developing a series of applications to achieve that, starting with Pangea.”

– David Orban, Network Society

“Who knows where this might end. A representative from something called 'Bitnation' explained to Parallel Polis how an entire nation could one day be provided online via an uncontrollable, uncensorable digital network, where groups of citizens could club together to privately commission public services. Bitnation’s founder, Susanne Tarkowski Tempelhof, hopes Bitnation could one day replace the nation state and rid us of bureaucrats, creating 'a world of a million competing digital nations', as she later told me.”

– Jamie Bartlett, The Guardian

“Online activists have founded a virtual state called Bitnation. The decentralized organization is designed as an alternative to traditional states. There are no limits, and a wide range of options. Bitnation knows no hierarchies, is autonomous, and is based on voluntary participation. Anyone can join, contribute and offer services. The idea is based on the cryptocurrency bitcoin and the technology that produced the latter: blockchain.”

– Deutsche Welle

“Twitter, Waze, Spotify, Blablacar or Airbnb... These few names are among the references of the Netexplo Forum, which has been benchmarking and rewarding the most innovative digital projects since their inception for the last 10 years. After two days of meetings between entrepreneurs, start-up creators, researchers, philosophers, sociologists, and leaders at UNESCO, the independent organization presented its grand prize 2017 on April 27th. Among a list of ten winners, the public elected Bitnation Refugee Emergency Response (BRER), a Swedish project aimed at restoring an official identity to stateless people, via the blockchain. Thanks to this technology which makes it possible to authenticate and secure virtual transactions, BRER allows undocumented migrants to obtain an official and tamper-proof identity, as well as a Bitcoin payment card, without the need for a bank account.”

– Le Figaro

“The first nation distributed everywhere already exists. Bitnation was founded three years ago by the Franco-Swedish Susanne Tarkowski Tempelhof. Anyone can be a citizen of Bitnation by simply accepting their Constitution. Doing business there is a very different matter, because that is why you have to build a reputation. Or a bitreputation, to be precise. A good way to do this is to trade in Bitnation and prove little by little that you are a reliable agent. Like real-world nations, Bitnation offers its citizens a demonstrable identity, (cyber) protection services, a reliable insurance system and a embryonic form of justice. It has already carried some marriages between citizens, granted land titles and issued the first blockchain birth certificate. What else can a nation be asked to provide?”

– El País
