Bitcoin, Alt-coins, and Free Money Theory

As much as his concerns are valid, there is a different perspective where digital currencies of all kinds can compete in an open market to capture the most customers bases off of the greatest advantages they offer. This was presented in “The Denationalization of Money,” the magnum opus of Fredrick Von Hayek, Nobel laureate in economics and close friend of John Maynard Keynes. Hayek’s primary argument in this work was that through allowing the private issuance of currencies, banks would be forced to compete on the open market to have the most competitive currency.

It is designed to be incredibly secure yet easy to implement. The base protocol is built on top of OAuth 1.0a. This makes it fairly easy to implement a PaySwarm client using any of the widely available OAuth 1.0a client libraries.

Home » Case Studies This introduction to the WAT system is an excerpt from a longer paper by Mitra Ardron and Bernard Lietaer in which they offer ways of addressing some of the shortcomings of “peer-to-peer” currencies like the WAT.

The WAT System in Japan

The Wat system (described by Izumi, in a 2001 paper) is a peer-to-peer complementary currency system initially designed by Eiichi Moreno. It is used in Japan typically to allow for small businesses to issue IOUs (called WAT-ticket) to their suppliers. These suppliers in turn circulate them within an undefined community, until they are eventually redeemed with the issuing business. It was described in detail in a previous ijccr paper (Lietaer 2004). The challenge for the Wat system, and similar peer-to-peer systems, is that the trust in the currency is based in the trust of the community that the business or person backing a particular WAT-ticket is able to redeem the ticket on presentation.

Really – everything. Objects, energy, electricity, magnetic forces, atoms, subatomic particles, heat, ideas, information, emotions, photons, planets, galaxies, Flow is patterned – it is not uniform. There are many diverse/distinct flows occurring simultaneously and interacting in rich ways. (Sub-atomic particle groupings are patterns. Flows tend to follow previously established patterns. An object is formed as an accumulation in a flow. Interactions with other flows and objects shape patterns of flow. Within any set of boundaries, there are inflows and outflows.

PDF - HEC - Intelligence collective et monnaies alternatives - par Noubel. Monnaies alternatives : Jean François Noubel at TEDxDunkerque. Monnaies libres = free currencies? Depuis près d’un an que j’ai quitté l’association du Transitioner, j’entends parler et j’utilise très fréquemment l’expression des “monnaies libres” pour parler de ces nouveaux indicateurs, d’une grande libération de la monnaie telle que nous la connaissons aujourd’hui, mais aussi d’un spectre de lecture plus large de la Richesse.

Monnaies libres = free currencies?

Après un an de recherche, de navigation, de voyages dans l’univers de la richesse, des indicateurs de richesse et des moyens d’échange de ces richesses, j’aimerai revenir pour clarifier ce que nous mettons et mélangeons souvent dans “monnaies libres”. An Alternate Internet and The New Peer-to-Peer Currency. In response to the speed and efficiency with which the WikiLeaks site and its funding were taken offline, and the failure of the anonymous hacker movement to do any significant damage to Wikileaks’ corporate foes, media commentator Douglas Rushkoff notes how the situation illustrates how centrally-controlled the internet really is.

An Alternate Internet and The New Peer-to-Peer Currency

Rushkoff sees the Wikileaks debacle becoming a rallying point towards developing an new, alternate internet: The internet’s failings as a truly decentralized network, however, merely point the way toward what a decentralized network might actually look like. Instead of being administrated by central servers, it would operate through computers that pinged one another, instead of corporate-owned server farms, and deliver web pages from anywhere, even our own computers.

The FCC and other governing bodies may attempt to defang the threat of the original internet by ending net neutrality. explains: CNN: “Why Wikleaks Hackers Are A Glitch, Not A Cyberwar” Jean-Michel Cornu : "Un particulier peut créer sa propre monnaie". JMC - Le fait que ce sujet, plus ancien qu'on ne le pense généralement, prenne une nouvelle dimension est dû à plusieurs facteurs : la crise financière et monétaire bien sûr, mais aussi l'arrivée depuis quelques mois de plates-formes permettant de créer sa monnaie sur internet ou sur téléphone mobile qui devraient démocratiser la conception et la diffusion de monnaies complémentaires.

Nous devrions donc avoir une émergence de ce que l'on appelle l'innovation ascendante (une innovation faites par un très grand nombre de personnes plutôt que réservée à un petit nombre de chercheurs spécialisés). Pour prendre un exemple, le fait que l'informatique et les réseaux soient passés dans le monde de l'innovation ascendante grace aux micro ordinateurs, au Web et plus récemment au Web 2.0 fait que depuis 1993, la naissance du Web, jusqu'à nos jours il y a eu plus d'innovations (technologiques mais aussi de service ou d'usage) que depuis la naissance de l'humanité jusquà 1993. More Thoughts on Social Currency, Part I. In Splitting the Social Currency Atom I explored how it was possible to make sense of the various uses of the term “social currency” by analogy to the different functions of money.

More Thoughts on Social Currency, Part I

“Social currency” means different things depending on whether we are talking about it as a “means of exchange” (jokes, information, rumours) or as “unit of account” (reputation points, badges, diplomas.) While this analogy is useful, it isn’t perfect. In a number of important ways, social currency does not function like money. The MetaCurrency Project.
