THE PROBLEM

Our current 30 human rights protect us from history repeating itself. However, they do not protect us from the problems of today, or tomorrow.

We are Hu-manity.co

TODAY'S HUMANITARIAN ISSUE

Our inherent human data is bought & sold in a human data marketplace without being respected as our property.

Regaining Our Digital Self

Inherent human data is bought, sold, and used in a global human data marketplace without being classified as property leaving us no choice or control as to where, how, when or by whom our inherent human data is used.

Benefits of Data Classified as Property

We are on a mission to create a decentralized human right that will bestow the legal characteristics of property ownership to inherent human data, such as involvement in sale, fair market value negotiations, sharing, lien, security, and protection from theft, vandalism or squatting.

LARGE & EXPANDING MARKET

The human data marketplace represents an estimated $150B to $200B annually. Our inherent human data is being bought and sold without our consent, authorization, consideration, or compensation.

INHERENT DATA

Inherent human data is not just our browser & social media data. It goes way beyond Facebook.

Inherent human datasets also includes our geospatial data, driver and vehicle history, consumer spending habits, medical history, travel, dining, and recreational habits.

One individual’s electronic medical history can be sold for hundreds of dollars to multiple buyers, in different markets across the world multiple times per year.

THIS IS OUR INFLECTION POINT

We can now participate in the human data marketplace where our inherent human data has the legal characteristics of property ownership such as involvement in sale, fair market value negotiations, sharing, lien, and security.

THE SOLUTION

A Decentralized Human Right

01.

Human Right #31

Human right #31 is a decentralized human right declared as ``Everyone has the right to legal ownership of their inherent human data as property`` and an addition to the existing 30 human rights adopted by the United Nations in 1948 and bestowed to every human at birth. Without human right #31 to assure that our data is our property, organizations will continue to buy, sell and use it without our having choice or control as to where, how, when or by whom it is used.

02.

Built on a Blockchain

Hu-manity.co has developed proprietary technology that identifies existing legal corridors in privacy regulations and has designed new intelligent contracts on blockchains which humans can use to negotiate new terms of consent and authorization with corporations so that inherent human data can be respected as legal property. Hu-manity.co’s global inherent Human Data Consent and Authorization Blockchain (HD-CAB) is built on a “chain of chains” strategy combining Ethereum and other fabrics.

03.

Claimed on an App

August 2018, claim the 31st human right via an iPhone or Android App, and as a community exercise the right to organizations not currently respecting our inherent human data as our property. Humans, our data, and corporations will co-exist where corporations enjoy blockchain-backed explicit consent and authorization to use our data, and humans enjoy greater levels of privacy, and control and qualify to receive consideration via multiple forms of currency.

The vision of Hu-manity.co is a world where the next generation of human rights and policies emerge from a balance of centralized power and decentralized technological empowered communities.
