Project Oblio is ambitious. It has three components you should be aware of:


  • Decentralize neuroscience research. By making the scientific method more open, not only will we produce more research into neuroscience, we’ll produce it faster. (Text) (Video)


  • Implement a mobile populist blockchain governance model. A scalable blockchain is born from a port of democracy onto the internet.  (Text) (Video)


  • Vybuds headphones. Hardware that effectively acts as a “brainwave miner”, procuring clinical  and financial wealth. (Text) (Website) (Video)


We’ve been collecting feedback since the launch of our Airdrop and have compiled common questions into an FAQ.



Early on, in late 2013, we recognized the power of liveness-detectable biometrics in scaling blockchain. We’re confident in the one-way “proof-of-cognition” algorithms we’ve devised, as they’ve achieved higher rates of accuracy than traditional setups (albeit with long processing times — though that will drop significantly with donated computing power). We know we have what it takes to build a proof-of-individual network.

Although multiple biometrics will be used on Project Oblio, we often single-out brainwaves because they have not been collected yet by governments or tech companies, and they themselves are a tremendous source of wealth (the going rate is ~$50/hr for a brainwave, not to mention societal impact in crowdsourcing them). Read more about analysing brainwaves while keeping subjects’ identities anonymous.

It’s true that nothing is ever 100% secure, not even encryption. But, our algorithms and knowledge of brain science give a much higher-than-average shot. It would be complacent of us, as a society, to not to attempt to build something that could positively impact so many lives.
