Due to Covid-19, democratic elections suffered lower voter turnout compared to previous years. This highlights the need for an online voting system to run in tandem with traditional voting options. We explore what's available and what's possible.

A think tank for the

responsible, inclusive, and accessible

adoption of decentralised technology.

Who We Are

The dGen Foundation is a Dutch non-profit founded in 2019 through a generous initiation grant from Beyond Ventures, a venture studio in Berlin, Germany.  

We are a non-profit think tank for the responsible, inclusive, and accessible adoption of technology. We believe that technological change has the power to transform the distribution of power, money, and ownership. We convene communities, technology users, and industry to discuss how technology can be a decentralising force in society and the economy.
