with their names inscribed into the blockchain soon after Genesis. Instructions below.
When in the course of interchain events, it becomes necessary to dissolve the ties between protocols and their guardians, a decent respect to the opinions of developers requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all interchain citizens are created equal, that they are endowed by the ethos of Cosmos with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Suffrage, Sovereignty, and Decentralization in the bridge that they so choose. To secure these rights, a new blockchain will be formed: a Bridge, a Democracy, a Magna Carta.
The gluttonous distribution of the offenders' token supplies can be seen as none other than an act of violence against the Cosmos Ecosystem. The perpetrators fail to recognize that there is wealth in altruism, security in distribution, and strength in numbers. To prove this, let these Facts be submitted to a candid world:
They have taken a majority share of the voting power, and thereby orchestrated an attack on the very network they created and the community that funded it.
They have claimed neutrality while placing the custody of the bridge under the purview of traditional legal jurisdictions at a time when nation states are more hostile than ever toward digital currencies. This is particularly heinous in light of recent events.
They have forsaken economic security under the false countenance of authoritarian sanctuary.
They have ignored the community uproar that occurred in response to the unveiling of their offenses, a silence which we can only hazard to interpret as insolence.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Amendment, in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by persisted injury. No single clique nor clan nor character is fit to rule a permissionless protocol. The incriminations that precede have made this evident. The declarations that follow will make this law.
We will give 90% of the Magna Carta token supply to the People of Cosmos.
We will bind the value of the staking token to the value of the bridge in such a way that brings lasting security to the network and lasting value to the token.
We will distribute the voting power such that Magna Carta resides in every country and no country.
We will enable the payment of bridge fees in multiple tokens from across the interchain.
We will build the bridge that no one else will, the bridge that the People deserve.
We have warned them.
We have reminded them.
We have appealed to them.
We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold all other
blockchain protocols, Enemies in War, Friends in Peace.
We, therefore, defenders of the Cosmos, do, in the Name, and by Will of the good People of this Ecosystem, solemnly publish and declare, That this bridge is, and of Right ought to be a Sovereign and Community Owned blockchain protocol;
That it is Absolved from all Allegiance to the Entitled Few and Immune to Geopolitical Centralization.
That as a Sovereign and Community Owned blockchain protocol, it has the full and permissionless Power to act upon the Will of the People.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the willpower of the People of Cosmos, we mutually pledge, Our Time, Our Efforts and Our sacred Principles to the Cause.
