The co-founders of the projects are APCU chairman, Mr. Jikido “Jay” Aeba and co-founder and CEO of the organization Mr. Yasu Kikuta. The PR explains the initiative as a ‘decentralized federation of local advocacy and economic development organizations attempting to fight the surge of authoritarianism in the Asia-Pacific region and around the globe.”

So the use of economic power to exercise political control has begun to result in the exportation of the authoritarian government model to other nations such as Japan, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia.
The blockchain-enabled project incorporates the use of ‘Liberty Tokens’ to build a shared community and financial infrastructure intended to empower local organizations combating authoritarianism. The initiative has further collaborated with token economy ecosystem Wowoo.
