Bitcoin Dark Wallet - a project of unSYSTEM and Defense Distributed

• Defense Distributed
Dark Wallet:

Your keys. Your Privacy. Your Sovereignty. Dark Wallet is a project of unSYSTEM and Defense Distributed that starts with simple premises: Bitcoin as a web technology and privacy by default.

We love Bitcoin and the way it empowers and reorients individual and community commerce. Dark Wallet as a project will serve as a platform or starting codebase for delivery of a high quality Bitcoin that serves The People over enterprise and government interests.

The Dark Wallet premiere client will work as a light browser extension featuring trustless mixing, multisig, and colored coin support.

Who's Involved Vitalik Buterin - Author of Pybitcointools and technical writer for Bitcoin Magazine.

The Impact

Dark Wallet needs $50k to finish its development and testing.

We hope you will elect to support this open source infrastructure now over waiting for the premium, managed clients of tomorrow.

We are interested in scaling up the Bitcoin infrastructure in an intentionally subversive and empowering direction- taking Bitcoin just where it has been threatening to go. Towards an integrity of values, and a neutrality promoted by anonymity and a resistance to censorship. Software can stand for something.

The unSYSTEM team at the CIC live frugally and share a common ideal of investing in common infrastructure. Dark Wallet's funds will after 45 days be transmitted to a multisignature Bitcoin address, publicly viewable on the blockchain, for the coming months of project administration. Administration will be publicly accountable. Should we surpass our goal, surplus funds will be deposited to the same account and used to support unplanned and experimental features within the infrastructure.

We are skilled and experienced software developers who live for the freedom of the Internet.

Preserve Privacy and Freedom of Speech

Bitcoin is the next battle ground in the fight against supranational political domination. Nation states harrass their governed populations with parades of open lies, and dedicate their time to the modern statist paradigm: developing emergency powers and containing the growth of new technologies. Digital anonymity and freedom of financial speech are some of the last tools left in the dwindling garrisons of Liberty.

We are by turns threatened and mocked by neoliberal social engineers and their Boomer bagmen. We face an "architecture of oppression."

Worse still, even liberatory technologies like Bitcoin are on the path to self-censorship due to the business interests of a relative few who excerise disproportionate influence within a dangerously monocultural ecosystem. Help us introduce principled diversity with an intelligent and independent implementation.
Other Ways to HelpSome people just cannot contribute, or have not yet decided to engage with Bitcoin as a useful implement for change. But you can still help us:
Share this campaign with the share tools at the top of the page
Join the mailing list Use our development tools (libbitcoin, sx, Pybtctools) and offer feedback Begin building things. We need less ideas and more work. Start contributing to Electrum or packaging/testing/building the tools

While hitherto all valuations and ideals have been built on ignorance of Bitcoin or in contradiction to it- therefore long live Bitcoin!
