What You Need to Know About Trustroots but Haven't Been Told


Trustroots Foundation was dissolved on 24 May 2022. Between July 2022 and March 2024, Trustroots was operated by 3 private people, 2 of them resigned board members. Community members have been intentionally kept in dark about this by people in control.

On 25 January 2024, almost all volunteers were kicked out from Trustroots Github organization.

One of the three people in control, who remained in contact with volunteers, was "fired" by another one.

The remaining 2 people in control write about decentralization, but silence dissent, perform censorship, and concentrate control in their own hands.

On 20 March 2024, Foundation was restored, previous directors removed, and Callum and Kasper are the Board of Directors of Trustroots Foundation now.

As of 7 May 2024, the website still needs to be updated with these changes.

What can I do?


On January 25, 2024, many volunteers were kicked out of Trustroots github organization, some were completely banned. Also, hundreds of issues and pull requests were closed. This was a culmination of 1.5 years of takeover by a small group of people, after the Trustroots Foundation had been dissolved, and the main founder and developer had stopped being active.
