In 1637, Pierre de Fermat wrote one simple line that kicked off 350 years of relentless innovation in mathematics. The Fermat Movement is committed to the relentless innovation along the lines of empowering people, increasing people’s freedom, respecting people’s privacy, decentralizing power, personal data ownership, respecting diversity and collaboration between humans. It is made up of independent projects that share these values. You’re either a Fermat project or you’re not based on these criteria. Current Fermat projects are: the Internet of People, Cicada and the Personal Data Locker.
What does the Internet of People offer?
For digital businesses looking to cost-effectively scale globally, the Internet of People offers the world’s only infrastructure with an open social graph, direct access to people and direct device to device communication.
Open Social Graph
Global mapping of everybody with verified proof of how they’re related, open to anyone to use and contribute to.
It is comparable to Facebook + Google + all user databases combined but open for everyone to freely use it and innovate on top of it in a permissionless way.
Direct Access to People
People to People and Company to People interactions without going through silos.
It is like the Web, but instead of having Web Servers that allow you to connect to a company’s internal systems, it has Profile Servers that allows you to connect to anyone’s mobile devices.
Device to Device Communication
Removes all unnecessary intermediaries, including your own servers allowing you to cost-effectively scale globally.
It is like Bluetooth with a global range. It allows your end users to pair devices over the internet and run your app in device-to-device mode without servers.
What does Cicada offer?
Cicada offers a distributed direct democracy and decentralized application platform.
Human Unique Identifier
A decentralized, privacy guaranteeing Human Unique Identifier (HUID) unique to every person on the planet that returns control of personally identifying information (PII) back to individuals, allowing for revocable role based access control to that data.
Universal Basic Income
A new Distributed Proof of Work (DPoW) backed blockchain that is immune to centralization because of a unified client/miner with only one miner allowed per person, linked anonymously to a HUID. Miners are randomly drafted into built-in pools, meaning everyone contributes yet nobody dominates. The system provides a workable Universal Basic Income (UBI), i.e., it pays users to participate, since everyone is drafted to secure the network. It is incredibly energy efficient because it does not mine all the time and it is also storage efficient because it uses a Distributed Hash Table (DHT) of historical blockchain transactions, allowing it to fit and run on a cell phone.
