Imagine an Internet where democracy is at least as available as autocracy. The Metagovernance Project is building a governance layer for the Internet—an ecosystem of interoperable community-building tools that work across a range of digital platforms, from social networks to online games to blockchains.
The Metagovernance Project offers paid and unpaid internships on a rolling basis to qualified students and individuals. Internships are typically structured as research projects with defined durations and deliverables. Past internship projects have included constructing a library of computational legal contracts, creating a modular political system in Minecraft, and creating a tradeable token based on Twitter likes. Current internship projects include creating a Web3 Dapp that allows people to call a Kleros digital jury, analyzing data from the Cryptopolitical Typology Quiz, and contributing to ongoing research projects at Metagov.
