We stand on the precipice of one of the most monumental inflection points in the history of human society. The paradigm shift already underway will prove to be every bit as fundamental and far-reaching as the invention of the printing press, industrialization, the internet, and computerization before it.
The View Ahead
How many of us have taken a moment to consider how our lives will change over the next five, ten, or fifteen years? The world around us, the proverbial sands beneath our feet from a societal perspective, is shifting in ways that few people have taken the time to consider or understand. At the risk of sounding too melodramatic, the human race as we have known it previously is passing a waypoint that will prove auspicious in decades to come. Many will look back to this era as a critical turning point for humanity. The digital society has arrived and with it the question of digital rights. Most people simply are not ready.
Ensuring the protection of human rights in the digital era
Leaving the financial discussion aside for the time being, the digitalization and tokenization of society bring with it a whole host of ethical questions and considerations. The issue has already warranted an official United Nations response.
In a recent statement by the Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Technology, found here, the author articulated the issue quite clearly.
“Human rights apply online just as they do offline. Digital technologies provide new means to exercise human rights, but they are too often also used to violate them. Data protection and privacy issues, digital identity, the use of surveillance technologies, online violence and harassment, are of particular concern.”
Even for commercial concerns — perhaps especially for them — these questions will demand a firm position, pardon the pun. The public will expect clear, unambiguous answers to fundamental ethical questions. Particularly about subjects like decentralization and digital human rights.
In the dynamic and uncertain world in which we live, human rights experts agree that digital rights must become a top priority. This is also Serenity Shield’s vision. We believe that digital rights are the key to an inclusive and resilient world.
Evidently, our first step in the process of making this vision a reality, to fight digital inequality, is to provide secure access to digital assets for everyone. While this represents only our first step towards our global goal, it will lay the groundwork necessary to fulfill our mandate.
Our technological solution is fundamental to our vision but does not limit it. It is our baseline, the solid foundation upon which we will endeavor to empower people to take control of their digital footprint for themselves. This represents our goal, not just over their assets and succession plan, but for their individual rights as well. For Serenity Shield, this does not end at just helping others to plan ahead, to protect their assets. Above all, we believe that security, privacy, and digital rights are fundamental to a healthy future for humanity. No matter what else develops.
Furthermore, safe and easy transmission to future generations is also an important component of this issue. We created our mission and our solutions in this spirit. On a practical closing note, Serenity Shield will be your partner as the inevitable transition to broad asset tokenization proceeds. The need for protecting your critical digital information will become progressively greater over time. As such, Serenity Shield will be there to help safeguard your digital heritage, whatever form it may take. We are committed to providing peace of mind to our community by developing an innovative, secure, cost-effective, and decentralized blockchain data recovery solution. Equally, we intend to expand our utility over time to more fully empower the entire space.
