Inclusive Banking


I already have mentioned in a previous post that I believe that I would never have been connected to Threefold Foundation if I haven’t had read the book of Bernard Lietaer (2000). Bernard Lietaer did some scenario thinking about the potential of the digital age, sustainable prosperity and complementary money systems. Digital Privacy as a condition was already described in his first books.

I connected myself to the project of New Business Models of Weconomy because I wanted to try to connect myself to collaborative initiatives for a responsible digital infrastructure and applications for it (2013/2014). The project was led by Jan Jonker and brought me a lot of new learnings and network.

At this moment Jan Jonker is driving a project on inclusive banking:

What if ….

What if …
Teto Foundation could introduce Freeflow tokens in their initiative (read more) ?

What if …
The co-working space Bolwerk in De Zuidrand will co-organize a Threefold Coop (read more) and additionally will introduce additional digital tokens to:
– take care of the heritage of the Fortress ?
– take care of the park around the Fortress ?
– take care of the community tasks (hosting, logistics of events) ?
– take care of the childeren of the co-workers ?
– share professional books ?
– get services of other co-workers ?
– get services of the co-working space ?
– …

The work of Jan Jonker keeps us dreaming and acting.
Sustainable prosperity in De Zuidrand is our goal. Organizing well being is what we want together with Teto Foundation.

Coventional money is supposed to be doing everything. By adding in complementary currencies, you actually get different types of things and different outcomes from different complementary currencies

The leaders of VIPE / TITO Foundation are beta users on FreeFlowPages.


The leadership of VIPE / TITO Foundation are beta users on FreeflowPages. FreeflowPages runs on Threefold Grid and will become an alternative for Facebook. We started an on-line group to facilitate the exploration of new organising tools, like complementary money systems.

Itsyou.online is used to log in Freeflow Pages. Itsyou.online is connected to your own 3Bot. 3Bot manages your own data and workloads on Threefold grid. 3Bot could make a connection to a digital wallet. The innovation space of complementary money is out there.

What if a job is posted in the group and someone commit him/herself to get the job done ? What if that person will get Freeflow tokens in exchange for the time he/she spend ? Will these exchanges support the purpose and mission of VIPE/ TITO ?

We’re going to reflect on these questions. Drop a line to lieve.vereycken@co-inpetto.org if you want to join us in the VIPE/TITO group on FreeflowPages. You’re welcome to explore and learn with us.

You never change things by fighting against the existing reality. To change something build a newe model that makes the old model obselete.

Tft (Threefold Token) is a hopeful tool


In a previous post I mentioned that I wouldn’t have been connected to initiatives like Threefold Foundation if I haven’t read the book of Bernard Lietaer during the days the internet got introduced in the business world. Listen to a talk of Bernard Lietaer here.

Time will tell if Tft (Threefold Token) will get its place in the sweet spot of money systems, the sweet spot between diversity – and sustainable money systems (window of viability – scenario (A) of picture below).

The technology of Threefold Foundation is open source, the creation of more complementary currencies thanks to the technology of Threefold Foundation is an option (scenario (C)). I am hopeful and therefore proud ambassador and farmer. It seems that we are acting to avoid a colapse (scenario (B)).

The Threefold grid is becoming available thanks to farmers. At this moment some tokens of farmers within the eco-system are for sale. You want some in your wallet ? You want to become a Threefold tokenholder ? Check out the Threefold website or contact me for some support.

Money design matters (and it is getting a matter of choice)


I probably would not have written this post if I hadn’t read – The Future of Money – during the years the internet got introduced in business. It was 2001. Bernard Lietaer described the innovation space for money design for the digital era.

Since I have read the book, I couldn’t get my eyes of the space. Blockchain gives it new dimensions: a lot of experiment is going on and money design is getting discussed broadly.

“The last beings to comprehend the nature of water, are fish. So are humans about money.”  – Bernard Lietaer.

I do believe we can’t afford to neglect the innovation space and the co-design opportunity that is ahead of us. Money design is getting a matter of choice (and bad design could become a matter of fact). And with the quote of Bernard Lietaer in mind, I will share some articles on money design that I’ve read last weeks.

You could be part of the Threefold movement. Threefold Token is an organisational tool to tackle an organisational challenge. Threefold Token is supporting the development of a green, neutral and affordable internet. Value propositions of the Threefold eco-systems are shared.
