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 in order to make it more accessible to all the people of the German nation. His translation of the Bible into the German language made it easier and more accessible to the people who would not ordinarily be able to read and understand the original text, an event that had a tremendous impact on the people at the time. Thanks to the then recently invented printing press, the result was widely distributed and shared among the people. The translation would allow the people to become aware of the issues at hand and develop an informed opinion. The translation acted as a democtratizing force towards more freedom for the people.
To us Martin Luther distributed and democtratized access to an encrypted document, allowing millions direct access to the Bible. We see parallels between what he did and accomplished, and the spirit of Blockchain Technology which aims to distribute sharing and collaboration between people and organzations, and removing the need for centralized points of access and control, giving more freedom, control and sharing opportunities to the people.
Daring Greatly, Theodore Roosevelt,
26th President of the United States
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."
