OCP is a further reworking and development
of the Open Value Accounting, a
system originally developed by Mikorizal for
it's also the organizational tool of Bank of the Commons,
and some other projects. The OCP keeps evolving as
a common DB since 2017 with production data.
The current development of the Common Database is a complete refactoring of the OCP. The direct ancestor of the Common DB conceptual idea is the HoloData project, as explained in FairCoop context back in 2015, which in turns comes from a previous experience of generic software designed to manage integral cooperatives like the CIC.

The following points are being developed in the draft, a work in progress here.
The passion and goal is to make Common Good accessible for All.
Blockchain technology is based on a P2P model, but is data-centric and not scalable in the long term. Our model is an agent-centric distributed scalable network with dynamic settings, horizontal scalability, data resiliency and availability, where agents control their own data the way they wish, related other agents (peers) and communities. Private-by-design for private data, but Shared-by-design for common data.
WC3 vocabularies, the REA accounting model with the ValueFlows vocab, and the wip first Common Taxonomies set, will define a formal way to describe events and to define the structure of knowledge, e.g. the nouns represent classes of objects and the verbs represent relations between the objects. With a multi-tree and multi-version approach, they can represent different conceptualizations of the world and different understandings of it.
What we have in mind presents a challenge due to its intended scale and relative complexity when designing the network proposed to implement. For an agent-centric data handling HoloChain fits best, but ready-for-production distributed clouds are Chromia, nearly Storj and others. Also many other distributed DB's are ready to use open-source, to help fulfill the requirements. A p2p polyglot multi-model back-end system is under construction.
