The AKASHA Foundation

A non-profit born at the intersection of blockchain and collective intelligence.

We believe that humans are not problems waiting to be solved, but potential waiting to unfold.

This is why we nurture projects helping individuals amplify their potential through open systems that expand our collective mind at local, regional and global scales. If this fires your synapses, we unpack it below and describe the behaviours we’ve adopted for the journey.

As a word, AKASHA ( [aːkaːʃə], आकाश) has roots in Sanskrit and means “ether” in both its elemental and metaphysical senses. The ancient Sanskrit-speaking civilization envisaged akasha as a metaphysical information network connecting humanity with itself and infinite knowledge.

Our values

The principles guiding our behaviour

Purposeful action

We take time to reflect on the nature and reaches of our actions. We ask what’s right? Strive to do the right things. And do these things right.

Playful creativity

We infuse everything we do with playfulness, imagination and innovation. We explore constantly, bringing new ideas to light and new projects to life.

Continuous learning

We are on a journey of discovery and knowledge building. We grow together and find joy in the fact that there’s always something new to learn.

Interdependence

We are all part of something greater than ourselves. Our journey is experienced together in accompaniment, synergy and co-operation.

Openness

We are open to co-operation and collaboration with people, projects and organizations sharing our values. Everyone’s uniqueness adds to the whole.

Diversity

Our purpose demands understanding, and understanding requires a diverse mix of people, disciplines and perspectives. We’re all playing on ‘Team Human’.

Gratitude

We are grateful to be standing on the shoulders of giants and strive to acknowledge everyone’s contributions through everything we do. Thank you!

Integrity

We act with integrity as individuals and live by our values as a community. We will never compromise our values, even if this impacts our revenues.
