The Bokk platform is an initiative of COALA carried out with the support of several technical partners (Ascribe, Africa 4 Tech) as well as the support of the International Organization of La Francophonie and Creative Commons France.

COALA Fundation

COALA is an international multidisciplinary collaborative research and development initiative between academics, lawyers, technologists and entrepreneurs who are driving research, policy and infrastructure-building in the blockchain ecosystem. Recognizing these emerging technologies as a defining test of our time, COALA regroups people exploring the challenges and opportunities of emerging blockchain technologies and how they will affect the way we live in modern society.  COALA is a collaborative community eager to explore the implications and deployment of blockchain technologies at the nexus of our evolving social and economic order in the 21st century. We want people think about how the future Internet and society will look like in a world of ubiquitous connectivity, decentralized networks and devices.


Africa 4 Tech

Africa 4 Tech is an international plateforme and a network of innovators, connectors and brainers tackling the world’s biggest challenges.

“Globalize African innovation and Africanise global innovation”: it is a new paradigm that the whole Africa 4 Tech community wants to promote by helping innovators scale up and large companies to better understand local markets and cultures. 

Leading up to the 22nd Conference of the Parties of the United Nations (COP22) in Marrakech, Morocco, Africa 4 Tech hosted its first-ever innovation ephemeral campus. More than 200 scientists, world leaders, entrepreneurs and technologists sourced, designed and coded frugal solutions to address challenges related to education, energy, health, and agriculture. All the prototypes and talks produced during the event will be accessible on (under Creative Commons License).

Creative Commons (CC) is an American non-profit organization devoted to expanding the range of creative works available for others to build upon legally and to share. The organization has released several copyright-licenses known as Creative Commons licenses free of charge to the public. These licenses allow creators to communicate which rights they reserve, and which rights they waive for the benefit of recipients or other creators. An easy-to-understand one-page explanation of rights, with associated visual symbols, explains the specifics of each Creative Commons license. Creative Commons licenses do not replace copyright, but are based upon it. They replace individual negotiations for specific rights between copyright owner (licensor) and licensee, which are necessary under an "all rights reserved" copyright management, with a "some rights reserved" management employing standardized licenses for re-use cases where no commercial compensation is sought by the copyright owner.

Creative Commons Affiliate Network includes over 500 researchers, activists, legal, education and policy advocates, and volunteers who serve as CC representatives in over 85 countries. Creative Commons France is the French chapter of Creative Commons. It aims to contribute to the establishment of an inclusive digital society. Its purpose is to elaborate and coordinate commons-based initiatives with a view to promote the use of creative common licenses, and to provide training for the use of these tools to different types of actors, from the public and private sector (schools, universities, business, etc.).



Ascribe helps you to record, archive and share your digital works. When you register a work on Ascribe, the conditions of the license you selected will be saved on the blockchain. Ascribe allows you to share your works freely, while maintaining your attribution.
