Here's a proposal: Bezos won the capitalism game this century - for the next century let's change the game and the rules and we all start using our own instead of fiat money for real: https://joincircles.net so they can't compete.

Learned today about "Gitcoin.co" through the "Circles UBI" "grant" or "crowd-sourcing" - It's an intriguing scene. I'm still skeptical about the tech and I'm definitely a newbie in the crypto World. But I do understand this technology has and will have an impact on the "real world" more every day. So to not be completely left in the dark, I decided to get to know the tools and the people involved.

Is it possible to create a community owned currency that can exist both globally and locally without relying on the sovereignty of nation-states? And if it were, how would you build it? Circles is a cooperative project working at the intersection of cryptocurrency and UBI, trying to rethink money as a commons and as means to commoning. We are developing a p2p universal basic income using the Ethereum blockchain, and bootstrapping it with a Cafe that accepts our currency – currently gearing up for a research pilot in Berlin in 2019. We hope to shed light on the overall possibilities of alternative currencies, as well as the limitations of working within the blockchain space, given its political economy.

 

Presentation starts at 00:03:40 - The question and answers are really good.
