What is Decenturion? Is it Dangerous?

What is Decenturion?  What does it intend to do and what are the dangers it possesses?  Is it real or just another scam?  Let us try to decipher this new idea of a decentralized digital state called DECENTURION.

What is Decenturion?

DECENTURION is the first decentralized autonomous state where all the resources, such as money, power and glory belong to the residents.
Is a decentralized state even possible?  Since this state will be online and there is no border definition yet online as I believed then this is a big possibility.  Decenturion's website defines it as the first fully decentralized state in which economy, governance, and communications are built on a blockchain.

According to the site,  Decenturion's system of value pts its own residents in the epicenter.  This approach determines the key principles of the domestic policies of the state.  They further state that this state solves the challenge of creating a society.

Decenturion citizenship if free at the moment and they are encouraging people to apply.

When will Decenturion State Begin?

The Decenturion state does not actually begin today but 41 days from now which is August 1, 1998.  We initially thought that it will be within years but it is closer than we have expected.  Perhaps the delay on the actual start of this virtual state is because they want to gather citizens and then launch when there are enough citizens already.

Is this another thing similar to "The Cicada 3301" puzzles that were released years ago?  Who is really behind all of this?  As of now, we do not know yet, except for an excerpt from their website.

The “Decenturion” (or “Platform”) is a new digital world represented through decentralized platform open to people who believe in such concepts as the free economy and realization of their dreams. Decenturion is the blockchain “government” or a society with its own economy based on democratic principles. 

What is Decenturion State Symbol?

The symbol of Decenturion can be very familiar although it is edited and used in a different way.  This may very well be the Star of David.

Decenturion Symbol

The Star of David (✡), known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David.  It is a generally recognized symbol of modern Jewish identity and Judaism. Its shape is that of a hexagram, the compound of two equilateral triangles. Unlike the menorah, the Lion of Judah, the shofar and the lulav, the Star of David was never a uniquely Jewish symbol, although it had been used in that way as a printer's colophon since the sixteenth century.

Decrypting the Name "DECENTURION"

The name somewhat originates from the word "Centurion" which is a commander in the Roman Army commanding around 100 people or Legionnaires.  This explains why they gave a first "100" invites to blockchain pioneers.

Meanwhile "DE" which is used here is a prefix occurring in loanwords from Latin (decide); also used to indicate privation, removal, and separation (dehumidify), negation (demerit; derange), descent (degrade; deduce), reversal (detract), intensity (decompound)

What are the Dangers of Signing-Up for Decenturion?

Here are some of the dangers that we see when you sign-up as a citizen.  We are highlighting the most obvious danger which is contained in their "Terms of Service Agreement," something which most of us fails to read.

PUBLICITY WAIVER AND RELEASE.  You hereby irrevocably permit, authorize, grant, and license Decenturion and its affiliates, successors, and assigns, and their respective licensees, advertising agencies, promotion agencies, and fulfillment agencies, and the employees, officers, directors, and agents of each and all of them ("Authorized Persons"), the rights to display, publicly perform, exhibit, transmit, broadcast, reproduce, record, photograph, digitize, modify, alter, edit, adapt, create derivative works, exploit, sell, rent, license, otherwise use, and permit others to use your [name], image, likeness, and appearance, voice, professional and [personal biographical information], and all materials created by or on behalf of Decenturion that incorporate any of the foregoing ("Materials") in perpetuity throughout the universe in any medium or format whatsoever now existing or hereafter created, including but not limited to, in and on magazines, brochures and other print publications, electronic, magnetic, and optical media, motion pictures, television broadcast, cablecast, and satellite, home video and video on demand, radio broadcasts, display, point-of-sale, and other advertising and promotional materials, press releases, the internet and other digital transmission or delivery methods, mobile applications, on any platform and for any purpose, including but not limited to advertising, public relations, publicity, packaging, and promotion of Decenturion and its affiliates and their businesses, products, and services, without further consent from or royalty, payment, or other compensation to you. [I have never seen this before. Are you saying that you can share with Authorized Persons the Members’ bio? Date of birth? Full name? The only thing missing is a social security number. This would clearly lead to fraudulent activity. Also, if Decenturion plans to have any European members, then it must comply with the GDPR regulations regarding prior consent.]
The waiver above makes them the owner and have full access to all of the information that you will provide them.  This is the first ever TOS that has this kind of waiver which is on the maximum and even allowing them to use your name and other information without your knowledge plus the right to edit and convert them to other media.  It does not end there...

Decenturion shall be the exclusive owner of all rights, including copyright, in the Materials. [Decenturion cannot possibly own such information as date of birth or bio or name of its members. Such personal information belongs to the members.] You hereby irrevocably transfer, assign, and otherwise convey to Decenturion your entire right, title, and interest, if any, in and to the Materials and all copyrights and other intellectual property rights in the Materials arising in any jurisdiction throughout the universe in perpetuity, including all registration, renewal, and reversion rights, and the right to sue to enforce such copyrights against infringers. You acknowledge and agree that you have no right to review or approve Materials before they are used by Decenturion, and that Decenturion has no liability to you for any editing or alteration of the Materials or for any distortion or other effects resulting from Decenturion's editing, alteration, or use of the Materials, or Decenturion's presentation of you. Any credit or other acknowledgment of me, if any, shall be determined by Decenturion in Decenturion's sole discretion. Decenturion has no obligation to 6 create or use the Materials or to exercise any rights given by this Agreement. [You need to narrow the scope of the definition of “Materials”
Technically, you are surrendering every bit of information you are giving to this site.  This is shocking and unprecedented.  Wait, there's more...

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby irrevocably waive all legal and equitable rights relating to all liabilities, claims, demands, actions, suits, damages, and expenses, including but not limited to claims for copyright or trademark infringement, infringement of moral rights, libel, defamation, invasion of any rights of privacy (including intrusion, false light, public disclosure of private facts, and misappropriation of name or likeness), violation of rights of publicity, physical or emotional injury or distress, or any similar claim or cause of action in tort, contract, or any other legal theory, now known or hereafter known in any jurisdiction throughout the world (collectively, "Claims") arising directly or indirectly from the Authorized Persons' exercise of their rights under this Agreement or the production, exhibition, exploitation, advertising, promotion, or other use of the Materials, and whether resulting in whole or in part by the negligence of Decenturion or any other person, covenant not to make or bring any such Claim against any Authorized Persons, and forever release and discharge the Authorized Persons from liability under such Claims. You understand that Decenturion is relying on this Agreement and will incur significant expense in reliance on this Agreement, and you agree that this Agreement cannot be terminated, rescinded, or modified, in whole or in part.

In the above paragraph, you also waived your right to sue them.  Wow, the creators of this idea is truly amazing and have something in mind which is dangerous.

By this alone we can say that the main danger of signing here is giving up all of your information to them with you surrendering control of where that information is used.

OUR VERDICT is DO NOT REGISTER nor divulge your information here because it is very, very dangerous.  I do not know but I would say what they have come up here is a bit illegal.
