Industrial revolutions are profound periods of human ingenuity and rapid technological advancements, in which economic systems and social structures are transformed.

Famed venture capitalist Marc Andreessen once opined, “Bitcoin at its most fundamental level is a breakthrough in computer science — one that builds on 20 years of research into cryptographic currency, and 40 years of research in cryptography, by thousands of researchers around the world.” Mr. Andreessen eloquently expounded his view of Satoshi Nakamoto’s bitcoin creation, which was itself a branch of countless other’s previous work. Augmate believes in the open culture from which the blockchain community was founded.

Today most of the cryptoasset community is adhering to the open definition of knowledge…
