The inspiration behind our name
Martin Luther was a German professor of theology, composer, priest and monk in the 1500s. Luther began to translate the Bible into German to make it more accessible to all the people. His translation of the Bible into German made it more accessible to the people who would not ordinarily be able to read and understand the original text, this had a tremendous impact on the people. Thanks to the recently invented printing press, the result was widely distributed among the people. The translation allowed people to be aware of issues and develop an informed opinion. The translation was a democratizing force towards more freedom for the people.
To us Martin Luther distributed and democratized access to an encrypted document for the people. We see parallels between what he accomplished, and Blockchain technology which aims to distribute sharing and collaboration between people and organizations, and removing the need for centralized points of access and control, giving more freedom, control and sharing opportunities to the people.
