Manifesto: Own Your Data
BlockSurvey is a decentralized data collection infrastructure that helps individuals and organizations to collect and share data through forms and surveys with privacy and security. It is created to give back control of data ownership in the data collection process.
The BlockSurvey manifesto is a series of beliefs that guide the way we build and develop our infrastructure. There are many reasons why BlockSurvey's features and constraints are the way they are. The article is about why we developed BlockSurvey and continue to do so. It's a behind-the-scenes look at what happens in our heads of BlockSurvey.
Our collective advocates for data ownership and data privacy. Seeing so many community members standing up for this is particularly heartening. It would be a source of great pride for the advocates of digital rights to read statements such as the following:
- “With BlockSurvey, You own your data. Your data, your rules. “
- “We would never run ads or collect invasive information about our customers.”
- “In data sharing, we make forms and surveys accessible and transparent.”
- "Our long-term goal is to make BlockSurvey the go infrastructure for data collection, one that is decentralized.”
