It will be interesting to live in a world where every major retail corporation's coin is in competition. “The digital currency may be pegged to the US dollar and available for use only at selected retailors or partners. In other embodiments, the digital currency is available for use anywhere. ...Read More

Programmers put their ideology into the code they write. A good case study: "Urbit positions itself as a P2P project, but it stands out in contrast to other P2P projects, mainly because the person behind it, Curtis Yarvin, seems antithetical to what I understand P2P to represent... Who and what ...Read More
Moving from CAD to CAG: baking data-driven complexity models into our decision-support systems will revolutionize our ability to understand the implications of policy choices in our complex social systems. The future of DAO governance is emerging.
Varios funcionarios del gobierno de EE. UU. En altos cargos, incluido el Presidente, afirmaron recientemente que la criptomoneda no es una buena forma de pagar los bienes y servicios. Si bien algunos analistas dicen que esto detuvo una carrera alcista en 2019, ¿es cierto que estas palabras realmente tienen un ...Read More
"Three priorities were set for completion by the November deadline. The city’s blockchain points system will be introduced and residents of Seoul will receive S-coins for the use of public services.

"The Web3 ecosystem is incredibly diverse on many dimensions, on the types of problems being solved, locations of the teams, economic models they’re employing, and more. That the Web3 stack is coming together despite the fact that there isn’t a single logically centralized entity coordinating the whole thing is remarkable. The greatest challenge in the transition from Web2 to Web3 is the transition from systems in which all three vectors of centralization - logical, architectural, and political - have been bundled to systems that are logically centralized but politically and architecturally decentralized." ...Read More
"Grassland is an open-source, anonymous, and completely trustless, P2P network of incentivised computer vision software that turns a 2D video feed from any single-perspective camera into a (politically) stateless, indelible public record of the lives of humans, physical assets, and environmental changes as a real-time, 3D simulation similar to the ...Read More
“Nobody actually cares if tether is backed or not,” says Konstantin Plavnik, chief operating officer of Moscow-based crypto derivatives exchange Xena. Confidence in Tether’s solvency relies on long-time habit and convenience: this market needs tether, so tether is trusted.
"One way to think about various kinds of crypto projects is through the lens of contract theory. An axiom of this area of legal scholarship states: “all but the simplest contracts are incomplete”. That is, contractual arrangements cannot anticipate every possible outcome or set of actions, given complex and dynamic ...Read More
Conviction Voting offers a novel decision making process that funds proposals based on the aggregated preference of community members, expressed continuously. It sidesteps sybil attacks, provides collusion resistance, and mitigates many of the attack vectors of time-boxed voting mechanisms.
This is really fascinating! Anyone want to try creating an entry on this new directory for #governance patterns? https://medlabboulder.gitlab.io/democraticmediums/mediums/continuous_voting/ I opted for "continuous voting" rather than "conviction" because I think that term sets the idea apart a bit more from other methods. I would think of conviction voting, perhaps, as a variant of the broader continuous type. Does that seem right? @mZargham @abbey_titcomb
"The main principles of dynamic governance are known as consent, circles, and double-linking. In contrast to consensus, where everyone must agree on a decision, consent is reached when there are no remaining paramount objections. When a policy change is proposed, any objections are discussed, and if needed the proposal is A sociocratic organization is comprised of multiple tiered, overlapping circles. A circle is a semi-independent team of individuals responsible for governing its domain according to the entity’s principles. This is the horizontal element, where everyone in the circle is a full member with equal say. But there’s also a vertical ...Read More
