Vision, Mission, Values, and Principles

Decentralized governance starts with shared missions, values, and principles.

Vision and Mission

Our vision is a future where all forms of value are represented as digital assets and flow freely and reliably among people and communities around the world. Our mission within that is to be the world’s best peer-to-peer trading system: a fundamental primitive of a tokenized economy.



Anyone can participate and contribute to AirSwap. The more open and connected the community is the healthier the network will be.


Every participant and contributor is treated fairly and rewarded consistently. All opportunities are inclusive and available.


Decisions are made in the open and contributions are open source. New information is continuously and actively shared throughout.


The following were accepted in AIP 8: AirSwap Principles

1) Design for simplicity

Perfection is achieved when there is nothing left to take away. This is particularly true with blockchain based technology and applications.

2) Prioritize security

Our work is done in an adversarial setting. While blockchain requires users to take security into their own hands, they trust AirSwap to be designed and to operate in a secure way.

3) Decide with data

Drive decisions with data that matters. AirSwap performance indicators are trading volume, token holders, community engagement, and tokens used for governance.

4) Seek opportunity

Decentralized finance is abundant with opportunities. Seek and prioritize opportunities that positively impact both AirSwap and the broader ecosystem.

5) Win together

Our community spans platforms across cyberspace and countries across the globe. We grow by both sharing responsibility and celebrating each success.
