Freecoin is a set of tools to let people run reward schemes that are transparent and auditable to other organisations. It is made for participatory and democratic organisations who want to incentivise participation, unlike centralised banking databases. Freecoin aims to leverage the use of social digital currencies in a reliable, simple and resilient way. We are building a Social Wallet using the Freecoin toolkit to be adopted by a prestigious European research project on economic sustainability:
In the IoT paradigm, having a clear overview of what goes in and out of the network becomes of crucial importance for home users and professionals. The ultimate question of responsibility for whatever happens within a network cannot be easily answered, considering the way things can autonomously decide to initiate communications. Dowse is a smart digital network appliance for home based local area networks (LAN), but also small and medium business offices, that makes it possible to connect objects and people in a friendly, conscious and responsible manner.
ENTROPICAL.org is an art research project established in 2015 to contrast abstract value creation with new paradigms in distributed energy usage and value re-cycling. We present our concepts using an evocative visual language through series of screenprints, graphics and installations. How can we bring these value systems into a direct productive relationship in a time in which intensive computation is valued far more than ecological regeneration? How, for example, can Bitcoin positively affect the rhizosphere, the layer of earth around the roots of plants? And how mycological processes affect and inspire digital systems like a cryptographic blockchain?
Trasformatorio is an international laboratory focusing on practices related to site-specific performance. It’s objective is to integrate the practice of the Hacklab with the research over performative arts and sustainability. Trasformatorio had two editions in a medieval village in the Sicial region of Nebrodi mountains, 900 meters above sea level, a little known area rich of history and natural beauty.
Decentralized Citizen Engagement Technologies
D-CENT is a research and development project on privacy-aware tools and applications for direct democracy and economic empowerment. Together with large movements of citizens and developers, we build decentralized social networking platforms for participatory democracy, collaboration and decision-making.
Dyne.org’s contribution to the Free Software community is immense. We appreciate this work from India.Frederick Noronha

Theatre and performance art as a cultural languageSince 2000 dyne.org hosts an atelier for digital artisans working at the nexus between art, technology and science. We adopt interdisciplinary design methodology for software development, cultivating ideas and sharing a grassroot access to technology, education and freedom. In that video you can see a selection of our theatrical productions.

Devuan GNU+Linux presented at FSCONS 2016Devuan GNU+Linux is a fork of Debian without systemd. Its Beta release marks an important milestone towards the sustainability and the continuation of Devuan as a universal base distribution. Devuan Jessie provides continuity as a safe upgrade path from Wheezy and a flawless switch from Jessie that ensures the right to Init Freedom and avoids entanglement. Since the Exodus declaration in 2014, infrastructure has been put in place to support Devuan’s mission to offer users control over their system. Today Devuan is available for a number or embedded and virtual machines architectures and runs as a reliable OS, arguably even more reliable than Debian itself since its switch to systemd.

Marco 'Radium' Sachy about digital social currency"We start from a system that is anti-social [...] and reverse engineer it into a system aimed at fostering social relationships, rather than hindering them." Our complementary crypto-currency designer at Dyne.org talks about aims and visions we have for the PIE project regarding the development of a Social Wallet based on the Freecoin Toolkit.

Museum of Working Computers
Since more than 20 years we curate a museum of working computers: a place where people can, both physically and remotely via Internet, log into historical computers, know their history and learn electronics and computer science starting from the beginning. We repair, preserve and share to the public our heritage: hardware, manuals, software, electrical schemes and media of various kind.
Selection of books mentioning us
We facilitate artists, creatives and engaged citizens in the digital age, sharing tools, practices and narratives for community empowerment.
Our software is not just about market products to satisfy consumer needs: it has implications that can be aesthetic, social, political, technical, spatial, linguistic, economic and numerical.
Since the year 2000 a large amount of people and organizations employed and redistributed our creations: radio makers, film makers, artists, medics, activists and educators.
Our strengths are community, software and documentation.
Worldwide, free of charge, free to copy.
We work also as an European research organisation for the delivery of publicly funded software projects and we believe that code paid by the people should be available to the people. Our software gives everybody the right to use, study, share and improve its code, to support fundamental freedoms like freedom of speech, press and privacy. Dyne.org is associated to the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) and involved in the following research grants:
Is programming something you always wanted to try but never got the chance? Do you maybe feel it is a world you don’t belong in or it is something too difficult for you? We believe this is not true! Programming is loads of fun and everyone can learn how to program....
