Your support was instrumental in the creation of Ulex: an open-source legal system that gives access to justice to all those underserved. It’s hard to overstate how much the creation of a non-governmental legal system will mean for the future of startup societies.
For those who care about how their donations are contributing to more ethical and expedient governance worldwide, as well as how this project is advancing, we have a few short points:
Funds & Budget
The goal for the Ulex crowdfund was $50,000. This goal was almost met, with $23,000 being raised by 38 backers. The breakdown of funds is as follows:
Reaching more users, contributors, advisers and developers is an essential part of making Ulex a tool that changes people’s lives for the better.
A concentrated following has brought Ulex as far as it’s come. Those who support the idea of open-source law deserve the latest updates regarding Ulex, as well as the technology and regulation surrounding it!
The Ulex infrastructure allows for various forks and versions, and as such it is being developed as an open-source project on GitHub. Most of the funds raised by the Ulex crowdfunding will fund the bounty incentives for contributions to the Ulex kernel.
Ulex’s research will focus on creating papers in fields such as jurisdictional recognition, governance technology adoption, game theory in digital ecosystems, and other fields relevant to the development of quality dispute resolution and governance.
The Ulex advisory board will consist of those experts who’ve shown the most initiative in advancing the project — these are seasoned entrepreneurs and businesspersons with an interest in the ICG mission. They are:
