Cryptocurrency that promises a version of 'universal basic income'.


  • Wrapped token - interoperability feature, being developed, where you can trade one crypto, say Bitcoin, on another network, providing efficiencies of both.
  • There should be as many cryptocurrencies as websites
  • Create your own financial instruments! Now that is possible
  • Crypto - is open source, permissionless, open, trustless. Transactions are uncensorable, unsanctionable.
  • KYC AML - know your Customer Anti-Money Laundering - libracoin by FB had it. Not true crypto - incongruent with trustless permissionless.
  • 'Not your key, not your coin' - push only. You can only send money. You cannot take money from crypto account. Credit card numbers are both push/pull - you can send to it, you can take from it.
  • Crypto is not 'not backed by anything' - it is backed by a network that allows you to transact freely. Fiat currency is backed by oil today (petrodollar)- so cannot stop global warming while using dollars.
  • Attacking a crypto gives it more strength - a judo throw?
  • Cosmos and Polkadot - working on the ecosystem of interoperability. Like OSE is working on interoperability of technology in general.
  • Money is very important - design new money, design a new civilization.
    • Crypto allows us to 'rewrite what we take as just the way things are'
  • Crypto thus allows for a primitive form of collective intelligence
  • Trustless - doesn't need to trust other individuals - but you can trust the info on the system. You can trust info by trusting that network tells me. Open source is critical to that.
  • Efficiency and high velocity - afforded in crypto
  • In 2008, triple entry bookkeeping started - the third was on the blockchain.
  • Double entry - 1400s
  • You do not know the amount of dollars in circulation. You know exactly with crypto. Today and tomorrow - this provides certainty and stability. Rely on it every day.
  • Cantillion effect - [1] - upon printing, money is worth more - than at a later time - when it is diluted (inflation)
  • Cryoto has unmutability - fixed properties that are baked in. Nothing in the natural world works like this.
  • MOney is a product. Design of money determines design of civilization. Design a new money - design a new civilization.
