Harbour is a tool set used to design the best governance system possible for any organization, a comprehensive set of rules that connect organizations with the necessary components required for efficient decision-making.
The Container Ship
An organization is composed of a variety of unique cargo or governance components and just like any container ship, that «cargo» can be easily swapped out and modified because of the common standard of the protocol.
The Support Ships
As with any complex system, Harbour needs the support and integrations of a number of third-parties. These can be thought of as the support ships in the Harbour.
We expect that as time goes on, Harbour will become a thriving port, home to a diverse array of thinkers, builders, and ways of organizing people.
Harbour is democracy
Harbour is an efficient, safe, and convenient place where all kinds of organizations can build and share their governance structures. We do so by providing users with the necessary tools to build and implement their preferred governance models.
The Harbour platform an easy-to-use interface. Here, you can manage your organization, create proposals, see past decisions and votes for your organization, and of course cast and execute votes and make decisions.
Developers designing and building using the protocol will create interoperable modules that can be shared with other users. Great modules will achieve wide use and great rewards for their creators and establish footholds in a burgeoning governance ecosystem.
At the core of Harbour is its protocol, which is a collection of Ethereum-based smart contracts that together make up the core logic of a democratic organization.
As with anything blockchain-based, decentralized governance allows for trustless verification, dis-intermediation, and efficiencies that cannot happen in traditional governance models. We are doing this so that we can enable the world to create fairer, better, and more efficient democratic governance models and structures, from a few people in a small business to an entire nation.
