Mission, Vision and Values

The MVV is a foundational document for our community that guides all individual and group actions. It is a living document that was collectively proposed and voted on by our community. This document is the second iteration of the MVV, and newer versions will emerge periodically as the organization evolves.


Our goal is to become a Schelling Point for the token engineering community.
Our economic layer will fund projects that discover, develop and proliferate the best practices for engineering safe tokenized economies, while aligning our collective success with the individual benefit of token holders.
Our social layer is even more important, as it will unite the token engineering field around the ethical principles, standards, tools and methodologies that emerge as this nascent field advances.


Enable the creation of ethical, safe, resilient and diverse economic systems to benefit societies around the world.


Our Commons operates from a prosocial, human-centered perspective and prioritizes the advancement of token engineering over short-term profits.
Integrity, curiosity, constructive inquiry, presence and gratitude are foundational for maintaining mutual respect within our growing community.
We encourage our members to be radically open source, non-hierarchical, transparent in their intentions and accountable for their actions.
