Present & Future

April 2017 - Present


Open Collaborative Platform

OCP is a further reworking and development of the Open Value Accounting, a system originally developed by Mikorizal for Sensorica, it's also the organizational tool of Bank of the Commons, FreedomCoop, FairCoop and other projects sharing the same database: the Open Collaborative Platform keeps evolving as a common DB since 2017 having collected data from agents/members.
The current development of the Common Database is intended to be a refactoring of the OCP, while a direct ancestor of the Common DB conceptual idea could be considered the HoloData project, as explained in FairCoop context back in 2015, which in turns comes from a previous experience of generic software designed to manage integral cooperatives such as the Catalan Integral Cooperative.

and Recentering

A project of this scale requires a well-coordinated team for development, research and communication, with a common philosophy, embodied within the principles of IntegralDevs project and its recent backing non-profit, based on common-good values and goals.The following points are being developed in the draft, a work in progress here:

  • Purpose, Definitions, Roadmaps, System overview and Background.
  • Overall description, Ethical business rules and Product Vision.
  • Specific requirements and system attributes: commons engineering and quality attributes, functional and database requirements.

Possible Uses

In the short term


The passion and goal is to make Common Good accessible for All.


Blockchain technology is based on a P2P model, but is data-centric and not scalable in the long term. Our model is an agent-centric distributed scalable network with dynamic settings, horizontal scalability, data resiliency and availability, where agents control their own data the way they wish, related other agents (peers) and communities. Private-by-design for private data, but Shared-by-design for common data.


WC3 vocabularies, the REA accounting model with the ValueFlows vocab, and the wip first Common Taxonomies set, will define a formal way to describe events and to define the structure of knowledge, e.g. the nouns represent classes of objects and the verbs represent relations between the objects. With a multi-tree and multi-version approach, they can represent different conceptualizations of the world and different understandings of it.


What we have in mind presents a challenge due to its intended scale and relative complexity when designing the network proposed to implement. For an agent-centric data handling HoloChain fits best, but ready-for-production distributed clouds are Chromia, nearly Storj and others. Also many other distributed DB's are ready to use open-source, to help fulfill the requirements. A p2p polyglot multi-model back-end system is under construction.
