Governance

DTR is a non-profit foundation based in Switzerland. All our resources must be used according to our legally stated purpose: to promote research into distributed technologies and to support the wider distributed technology community.

The initiatives we fund are run by decentralized communities, so good governance is essential for their long-term success. To encourage this, we are creating independent steering committees with a diverse group of members to represent the community constituencies. Their role will be to receive feedback from the wider community, make independent research and development recommendations to the community, and make funding recommendations to DTR.

The first Independent Technical Steering Committee will be led by Andrew Miller, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
