🚀 Top Launches: Timeless Wallet activation at Coachella, Leader interviews to improve external communication, 1MusicDAO with social tokens & digital festivals.
🎶 Harmony is a community-first, culture-driven project. In our commitment to open development and radical transparency, the team shares peer feedback and performance reviews in public. Beyond a shared mission, we bond over the unique culture of our community. That’s the social change we are spreading to the world.
👩👩👧👦 Harmony is also a human protocol for global collaborations. We align everyone’s contributions toward a common goal and boost each other’s performance through peer feedback. Our superpower is “strength in numbers”: compounding 10% improvements among a fully connected network of 25 people – that’s 110%^25 = 10 times impact together.
