A platform for building and exchanging business documents with independently verifiable integrity
We believe that the people want more control over their business processes and data than a single centralized company can provide. Any/all document systems can use the DuraDoc platform and system to provide decentralized, portable, verifiable legal agreements with embedded business rules.
ZKP based business logic and data structures can exist privately but are verified publicly via a neutral arbiter. This construct is not owned by any one company but rather created through the community of companies in co-opetition. These “stateless” validators require no private information to operate; they simply validate the public output of the private computation of the business logic.
For most digital legal documents, the common practice is to use the system of the originating party (mostly DocuSign since it is most popular). With documents created in the DuraDoc network, each party in the agreement maintains full control of the legal document files and associated data. Their host DuraDoc compatible service provider manages all the document-related activities (signing, verifying Identity, storage, date/time-sensitive events, etc.).
Join the Network
Every company that joins the DuraDoc network strengthens the network. Since the actual function of the network is controlled by a non-profit (or backed by a DAO) no one company can change the rules or alter the network in any way. This model is similar to the franchise model for restaurants, you can own a Subway, but you must use the same branding, style of food, pricing, promotions, etc...
We have seen an explosion of point solutions in the enterprise space. This has driven the API economy and resurgence in corporate identity management (aka "the Okta effect"). Technologies built on Ethereum (in the way described here) help push those point solutions further "down the stack" such that the companies become features of a larger global ecosystem of offerings that are not tied to a particular company but rather the underlying execution and reconciliation framework
