Europe is leading


In my quest to put the twelve rules of Compassion in practice, I decided to travel and learn (1). Shanghai (China) was my hometown in 2012. There I saw the beauty of The Underground, which is an European invention (2).

If people can build such a mobility system for the individual, the roll-out of the digital infrastructure with a digital seat for every single person must be possible. In 2012 I started to use the metro map as a sign of creativity, collaboration and hope.

What did I like about the metaphor? The London Metro System solved a societal problem that emerged as a consequence of the industrial revolution. It underpins the integration of the old and the new way of living. I liked that infrastructural idea at that time.

At that time, the glorification of the digital revolution and the power of Silicon Valley was fully alive. We in Europe were just powerless losers. I refused to buy that story. I believed we will do far better and we are doing better. Europe is leading in a third way.

The European Strategy for Data describes a vision for a digital society that works for all. It is published this month. It states that the human being is and should remain at the center of their digital life.

You are part of the unfolding story. Start to download your 3bot of Threefold Foundation. My next post will be about Threefold farming preparations in Fort V (South of Antwerp) and how we will live up the ambition of the European Green Deal too.

We are co-leading an co-designing for Europe’s future.

Kom op 20 januari 2020 naar het Fort V


Kom op 20 januari naar het Fort V in Edegem (Zuidrand van Antwerp) en leer meer over Threefold, 3bot en Threefold token.

Threefold maakt deel uit van een beweging dat gedecentraliseerde digitale infrastructuur ter beschikking brengt met een duidelijk doel voor ogen:
(1) minimaal energieverbruik voor digitale infrastructuur
(2) zo laag mogelijke kostprijs zodat ze ter beschikking komt voor iedereen
(3) eigenaarschap en beheer van (persoonlijke) data bij mensen

Tijdens de IEO (initial exchange offer) van Threefold komt het grid verder ter beschikking voor software ontwikkelaars die hun applicaties ter beschikking kunnen stellen aan de gebruikers van hun applicatie. Voor elke gebruiker van een applicatie komt een 3bot ter beschikking.

Goed nieuws om een nieuw decennium mee te starten; het alsmaar toenemend gigantisme gaat een einde kennen.

Kom dan ook naar het Bolwerk op 20 januari 2020. Leer, netwerk en bepaal uw positie om de digitale toekomst mee naar uw hand te zetten.

Programma:

19:30 – 20 uur: aankomst
vanaf 20 uur: info & dialoog
– Voor welk idee staat Threefold?
– Wat maakt het Threefold Netwerk sterk? Hoe maak je deel uit van succes en kansen ?
– Wat is stand van zaken? Wat zijn investeringskansen nu en welke komen er nog?
– Welke rol kan je spelen voor vernieuwing dankzij internet ?
– ..

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Towards a Sustainable World


As said in a previous post, I probably won’t have been connected to Threefold Network and Weconomics Foundations if I hadn’t read the first book of Bernard Lietaer (2001). The last book of Bernard Lietaer, Towards a Sustainable World, comes available from the 8th of Decembre.

Kristof De Spiegeleer, the founder of Threefold Network, has co-written the chapter about ownership of data.

Some Threefold IEO (initial exchange offer) News:

  • Probably you will be one of the first 1000 subscribers for the IEO if you choose to do it in the coming days or weeks. For the first 1000 subscribers, extra tokens are foreseen. The link is here.
  • Here is the IEO in presentation. It includes links to more reading material. 
  • Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you want to get your extra tokens (+32 472 29 15 34 – lieve.vereycken@co-inpetto.org).

Professionals at work


Organizing sustainable prosperity will become easier for more professionals. Platforms get the innovation space to underpin a business model for professionals with a digital infrastructure that integrates 3bot and digital tokens.

Options are opening up to connect your talent to challenges, to become part of the solution and to get paid for it. Digital tokens are getting introduced in platforms and they will become part of a beloved deal. Individual professionals will be able to connect to several platforms and live their Ikigai.

Keep your goals for yourself


Derek Sivers explains why keeping your goals for yourself is an effective mindset. And perhaps he is right. First act, then talk is the mantra within Threefold Network. Read what is said about Threefold in this article: the internet requires too many gatekeepers. Making it self-driving might be closer than we think.

Start to align your goals with the opportunities of a decentralized digital infrastructure. Value propositions to connect to Threefold Network will follow soon.

Goals become actions, actions become results.

The Rise of Surveillance Capitalism


Co:Inpetto wasn’t initially about changing economics. Co:Inpetto started in 1999 as a database-driven recruitment cabinet for IT professionals and business consultants. It was the year that the internet was entering the business world.

But since the recruitment business (as so many businesses) got trapped in the supply chains of Surveillance Capitalism, there was no other option than getting involved in making a change (more about the history of Co:Inpetto here).

Learn about surveillance capitalism and safeguard our freedom. We need it to act and move to our next level of prosperity. Because together we can do better thanks to digitization.

Marketing folks as Seth Godin and so many business people and entrepreneurs are speaking up. Join the movement, it is growing and unstoppeable. Otto Scharmer will have a dialogue with Shoshana Zuboff (the author of the book on Surveillance Capitalism) on the 4th of September, more information here. A podcast with Shoshane Zuboff here.

IMPORTANT NEWS

Start to consider to participate in an IEO (initial excange offer) of Threefold. Preparations for an IEO are going on. More information will follow.

If the digital future is to be our home, then it is we who must make it.

The Power Of The Poor


Read here why I am a proud ambassador of the Threefold Foundation. It has the potential and the ambition to make the digital infrastructure for our next level of prosperity available for every single person on earth.

Threefold technology stack offers a solution for the blockchain dilemma: privacy and scalability of a shared digital infrastructure can go hand in hand. And as we know, blockchain enables:
– identity management
– registration of value
– contracting
– exchange of value

Learn about these organizational features, about the brilliance borrowed from prosperous Switzerland and the bottom-up all-inclusive approach. Enjoy the documentary The Power of the Poor with Hernando De Soto:

Some exiting news to share:

  • Threefold Foundations is organizing an IEO (initial exchange offer). The mantra “first talk, then act” will pay-off: Threefold token (Tft) will become a stable coin backed by real assets namely compute and storage capacity. Watch out for the upcoming communications and feel free to ask questions.
  • Weconomics Foundations is preparing their congress – Work Less, Achieve More – for the 26th of November (more information here (Dutch only)). Paul Bessems is bringing the discussion about the productivity paradox and a possible sustainable future further.

The Zero Marginal Cost Society and More


Good to be reminded to some inspirational thinking before Threefold technology is getting launched (Q4 2019). The thinking serves the missions of Threefold, Freeflow Nation and Weconomics. The Zero Marginal Cost Society is a book of Jeremy Rifkin.

We can look forward to a new book of Bernard Lieater – click here for more information.  In his book – The Future of Money (2001) – he explained the opportunity to complement our current money system and warned us for data privacy loss. Features as 3Bot in a shared digital infrastucture as Threefold Grid will serve to make personal data personal again and for organizing our next level of prosperity.
