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

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.

Service Platform for the The Circular Economy


My data principles, new ways to support transactions, and tokens would support the circular economy. That’s a claim we made during an event on Blockchain Organizing. It was two years ago, we organized it as partners of Weconomics

It needed to be shouted out because only by cooperation we could move forward. Threefold came on the radar, and an intense learning journey started. 

Of course, other collaborative kept on moving as well. I did some updating by reading e.g., the white paper of a CoP powered by ‘Nederland Circulair’. Good ideas and learnings are shared. Download the text, the circular service platform whitepaper – here.

Some technical blockchain challenges are mentioned in the text, like privacy and easy token exchange. Threefold has a solution to overcome these challenges and it is getting available. Hurray! Let’s move the circular economy forward.

Dive deeper into the comparison between centralized IT, blockchain, and autonomous IT.

In the white paper of circular service platform, the hardware of the platform by itself is not taken into account for the circular design principles. Why not? I do believe that the business- and token model of the Threefold Grid will fit perfectly for the circular design principles.

If we could build an economy that would use things rather than use them up, we could build a future.

Token Economics and Community Building


A way to distribute Threefold tokens is investigated and prepared. With Threefold tokens, you buy compute and storage capacity. And since 3bot lives on the Threefold grid, Threefold tokens will be useful for every single person. If and only if … more and more organizations will adopt 3bot to interact with their members in their eco-system.

Learning and designing for the value proposition for token distribution is going on: an IEO (initial exchange offer) as a format is in consideration (more about IEO), an ICO (initial coin offer) was previously avoided.

Getting the value proposition for tokens distribution right is the clover model of New Business Models is in action (see picture below). Join the Freeflowpages group if you want to follow-up the work in progress here, every Tuesday at 6.30 PM, there is a zoom call.

There is no FOMO (= fear of missing out) needed. Every single person will get the opportunity to invest by buying threefold tokens. The final value proposition will get announced broadly later this year. For evaluating the value proposition, you need to understand the problem that Threefold is solving and how the Threefold network is evolving. We will be keen to answer your questions.

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

A Fortress as a base for a Threefold Chapter


A chapter for Threefold Foundation is getting home in Fort V, beautiful heritage located in my region ‘De Zuidrand’. ‘De Zuidrand’ is a name of an association of 7 towns in the south of Antwerp, it promotes our region for tourism. It is a nice place for traveling, working and living. 

At this moment we are investigating the opportunity to start-up a Threefold farming coop. This means that everyone will get the opportunity to become a farmer. Farmers co-own a part of the Threefold grid and get profit from it.

Why are Threefold farming coops needed ?

  • Threefold coops bring green, neutral and democratic storage and compute capacity available;
  • Threefold coops distribute income and organisational power.

Example of Threefold coops in the world is Mazraa.

Threefold Coops are getting possible thanks to the technical innovations Threefold Foundation offers. Threefold tokens will be the mean of value exchange between users, farmers, Threefold coops and Threefold Foundation.

Time Registration System


As an HR person – I have implemented a new time registration system to escape classical working patterns. It sounds like a contradictio in terminis. But it isn’t. We’re freeing data of the workers from 1 company. Workers are able to check in by neigbours as well. Because together we shape better jobs.

Don't be busy. Just be productive.

The transactions of this new collaboration will be managed at nearly zero cost. A shared and smart contract enables the payrolling and billing for participating companies.

P.S.: But let me admit something. The cluster of companies I am working for is not so far of the Zimmer Tower (Lier). What is time ? – is questioned at the Zimmer Museum and it is kept unanswered (and I have the answer neither).

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.

In Love with Nature’s Internet


In the digital infrastructure of Threefold every single person will get its own 3Bot. With 3Bot – data of a person belongs to a person and it will be easy to exchange. I do believe 3Bot is an important feature to get our society organized, a society where people are in love with themselves and Nature’s Internet.

Love the world as your own self, then you can truly care for all things.
