The Fundamental Standard is the primary principle that Space Decentral encourages its community members to follow, as well as the guiding philosophy behind the Space Decentral global mission. By familiarizing yourself with the Fundamental Standard you will be able to make an informed decision about whether to join our community.
The Fundamental Standard
Space Decentral is a distributed alliance formed to encourage investment in space exploration endeavors. We believe that participants in the Space Decentral community should embrace an attitude of open development and genuine collaboration. We also believe that participants in this community should be rewarded for their sustained efforts toward the ends we all endorse collectively as part of Space Decentral.
The Fundamental Standard, then, is the ambitious idea that Space Decentral is a place where open development and collaboration are fairly rewarded by the community.
