I wrote the GHOST vision statement about 11 months ago, and almost nothing has changed about the vision that was set forth then.
We have had some bumps in the road so far in this journey, but if you know anything about GHOSTS history, you know how resilient and dedicated the community is. If you don’t, I suggest you take the time to scroll back in their Telegram channel. It was quite the ride.

“ A specter is haunting the modern world, the specter of crypto anarchy.
Computer technology is on the verge of providing the ability for individuals
and groups to communicate and interact with each other in a totally anonymous
manner. Two persons may exchange messages, conduct business, and negotiate
electronic contracts without ever knowing the True Name, or legal identity, of
- Tim May — The Crypto Anarchy Manifesto 1992
When I first read the crypto anarchy manifesto in early 2017, I immediately became very excited at the prospect of what I thought it was talking about. The current increased interest in the development and adoption of Cryptocurrencies, drove me to get to the bottom of the manifesto.
When I realized that it was written in 1992, I almost fell out of my chair. Over the next 3 years I began to research the roots of this movement and the people that had been working on these
ideas for decades.
These guys were visionaries, and way ahead of their time. I immediately knew they were onto something. With the rise of the internet, smart phones, and other modern technology, we have gained many amazing new interactions, business models, and connectivity, but oftentimes have given up privacy for the sake of convenience.
As Edward Snowden infamously showed us in 2013, Bill Benny and others had shown us in the past, governments around the world are spying on you, and in this day and age, the big corporations are right there with them. You are a product of a system that monetizes your
thoughts, online searches, online purchases, and monitors the communication of yourself, your family, and your friends.
It’s time for a change. It’s time to become a GHOST when transacting online.
Privacy coins in the crypto currency market are not new, however no one has built a fully thriving ecosystem of products that provide privacy and anonymity surrounding all aspects of your crypto currency experience.”
DEFI was a huge first step in taking back the sovereignty of your finances but that is only the first step. PRIFI will be the next evolution that allows you to do all the things DEFI does, without leaving a trace.
GHOUL is here to bring PRIFI to the masses.
Most of you know that we are working on GHOSTDAI, a private stable coin running on the GHOST network, as well as the ability to make almost any Ethereum based transaction private….but private transactions and trading only go so far.
For a true thriving ecosystem we need news ideas, and fresh ways to look and current problems and even solutions currently being offered in the market place.
A private ecosystem is forming.
An ecosystem that will change the world.
We will release more information on these concepts and this vision over the coming days.
