Living Economy Salon returns! …Last time we only scratched the surface! Opening the floor to our community to speak briefly on Crypto/Blockchain, then we’ll break into discussion groups.
Our speakers will be the following:
Ray Podder will speak on FYL (Free Your Life) which is the first Free Exchange platform on the blockchain that pools shared resources together to shift business as usual to business as useful for everyone. Founded on valuing people before things, it’s a global consortium of investors, innovators, culture hackers and more co-creating the real story of abundance through an innovative access model that impacts people’s lives right now!
David Lightman will give a brief talk explaining why it’s important for people to have a nest egg in crypto-currency because there’s a significant possibility that widespread adoption will likely bring down the conventional banking system within about a decade. He’s a software designer and an expert in crypto-currency, having been involved with the space since 2012.
Francis DellaVecchia and Juston Brommel of Paper Lantern will share exciting projects in development with various collaborators around big system changes contemplated through use of the blockchain and tokens. We will discover what some are intending in the realms of renewable energy, regenerative agriculture, governance, intention based human exchange, and more. Think of Paper Lantern as lamplighters, illuminating the path toward the New Economy, one step at at time. Please bring more examples of this new economy that you would like to share and explore.
John Hanacek will highlight that in order for market systems to work there must also be non-market governance – aka voting rights/power cannot be for sale if the system is to stay competitive. He will touch on how to evaluate the future evolutionary direction of potential blockchain systems for use in a community based on the balance between the transactional game element and citizenship – the goal being to adopt systems that will resist power-law distributions as default to ensure a middle class in the future by keeping governance open and flexible.
Let’s take the conversation further on cryptocurrencies FTW: For The World
