Last word from the editor
For this issue of the Pirate Post, I want to further explore the idea of the Pirate Chain community as a new decentralized form of an International Non-governmental organizations (NGO).
A NGO is a non-profit private group that functions independently of any government. Traditionally, NGOs are organized on community, national and international levels to serve a social or political goal such as humanitarian causes or the environment. (https://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/13/what-is-non-government-organization.asp) NGOs also play a major role in international development, aid and philanthropy.
The modern NGO as we know it today only came about with the establishment of the United Nations in 1945. (https://ngos.org/what-is-an-ngo/) There are many types of NGOs, categorized by orientation (charitable, service, participatory, empowering) and level of cooperation (community based, city wide, national, and international).
NGOs are known to perform a variety of functions:
- • Human rights.
- • Environmental (sustainable water and energy resources).
- • Education and public safety.
- • Managing emerging health crises (HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B).
- • Community social problems (juvenile crimes, run-aways, street children, prostitution).
Examples of well known NGOs:
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 3 million supporters, members and activists in more than 150 countries and territories who campaign to end grave abuses of human rights.
World Privacy Forum is a nonprofit research group providing information about cybersecurity and privacy best practices and key issues. It is a nonprofit focused on empowering people with the right knowledge and tools to protect their information on the internet. World Privacy Forum releases reports on the biggest privacy issues affecting people online.
Our Pirate Chain community is the world’s first decentralized, international, grassroots non-profit group that champions the right to privacy. By being a member of the community, every pirate is a human rights advocate. Whether you volunteer time to organize meetings, create media to raise public awareness, or talk to your family and friends about the erosion of privacy, you are performing a public service to improve society. And Pirate Chain is the tool that empowers our movement to create a privacy-respecting world.
“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” ~ Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States.

The anonymity set of Pirate Chain can be tracked in real time at the Pirate Chain Privacy Stats website made by CHMEX.
