Goodbye Yellow Metal Based Currency …

I’ve Seen That Movie Too. Hello Trust Based Currencies.

I read about Trust Based Currencies at one of my favourite blogs: P2P Foundation. Today when I was searching for the link to that category I found this choice quote:

Since the dawn of humanity, a privileged few have lived in stark contrast to the hardscrabble majority. Conventional wisdom says this gap cannot be closed. But it is closing—fast. The authors document how four forces—exponential technologies, the DIY innovator, the Technophilanthropist, and the Rising Billion—are conspiring to solve our biggest problems. Abundance establishes hard targets for change and lays out a strategic roadmap for governments, industry and entrepreneurs, giving us plenty of reason for optimism.

This is exactly why I am so passionate about my company. I so know this is coming. I tell people we are at the moment of a Renaissance. We are the poster boys and girls of the Chinese saying: “May you live in interesting times” and meanwhile people are still following conventional politics. Go figure.
