Governance and Ethics

The Blockchain Policy Council (BPC) is responsible for oversight of all aspects of the ndau monetary system.The original 23 topic areas identified by the ndau Collective are organized into seven domains: Governance and Ethics; Security, Privacy, and Trust; Monetary System; Endowment; ndau Currency; ndau Exchange; and Software Development.  

As a result of the referendum vote on March 31, 2022, the BPC is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). DAOs are internet-native organizations collectively owned and managed by their members, and decisions are made via proposals the group vote on during specific periods of time. 

As a DAO, the BPC is an entity led by the community of all ndau holders. All BPC decisions are made from the bottom-up, using an automated and weighted voting system based on the BPC principles outlined in the ndau whitepaper, and thereby governed by a distributed community organized around a specific set of rules enforced on a decentralized and open source blockchain.
