D-CENT creates digital tools for direct democracy and economic empowerment. It helps communities to share data, collaborate and organize their operations. We are creating a social networking platform for large-scale collaboration. We call for citizens, developers, hackers and open source activists around Europe to work with us.

The abbreviation D-CENT refers to Decentralised Citizens ENgagement Technologies. Besides the platform, the project explores how communities might manage common goods and facilitate online exchange with Bitcoin-style digital social currencies. The project started in October 2013 and will run until May 2016. We have a multidisciplinary partnership from seven countries.
