Fermat Core Values

All we do is to empower people.

It is not robots,

It’s not machines,

It’s not algorithms,

It is not things,

*

It is not companies,

It is not states,

the most important is people,

people like you and me.

* * *

In a world where jobs are stolen,

by AI agents and automation,

we empower humans beings,

so that they can become the center.

*

Companies have us trapped on the web,

and private social networks of people,

even things now have their own Internet,

we fight back with the Internet of People.

* * *

State mass surveillance is widespread,

before we end up in desperation,

We propose a new idea:

device to device communication.

*

Some of them had grown too big,

and their power became a risk,

you just need one crazy guy,

and we might all just disappear.

* * *

We are not against companies,

we are not against states,

we understand they are important,

but sometimes, they are just a middlemen.

* * *

We give people the freedom to choose,

whether to use fiat or cryptocurrency,

whether to store it at a bank or by themselves,

that’s how we help in this story.

*

We give people the chance to interact Person to Person,

over electronic means,

but just like in the old days,

any business we do, stays just between you and me.

*

We give people sovereignty over their data,

they can sell it if they wish,

we provide a global marketplace,

they just need to sit and wait for the money to come in.

* * *

At the Internet of People we run our servers,

we store our data and run our apps.

If you are thinking about spying us,

All I can tell you is good luck with that.

* * *

If a company wants us to consume their ads,

They have to pay us.

If a company wants mine our data,

They have to pay us.

*

If we want to find some people,

It is free for us,

If we want to connect with someone,

It is free for us.

* * *

We stand for decentralized mining,

and a democratic blockchain,

where all stakeholders are considered,

and the rewards ease all their pains.

*

We don’t care about hashing power,

we don’t waste precious energy,

we don’t use specialized hardware,

our miners are humans beings.

* * *

The revolution already started,

so you’d better choose your side,

either you are with machines, things or entities,

or you are human as I am.

*

In our future we are the rulers,

and machines are to serve all men,

things, states and companies at our service,

as it always should have been.

* * *

We are building the Internet of People,

we are enabling the Person to Person Economy,

we will create a better future,

we don’t care if you think we are crazy.

*

A bit about me: I am a systems architect who started his career designing and building banking systems. Later I turned into an entrepreneur. Three years ago I learned about bitcoin and decided I would use the underlying technology to fix the biggest problem we have as humans: “unlimited concentration of power”.
