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

Drawdown


Paul Hawken was invited in Belgium by Econopolis. He talked about his project Drawdown. Drawdown is a platform that invites you to act on climate change.

Did you realize the internet cloud has a dirty secret? Thanks to decades of development and investements, autonomous IT of Threefold brings a far more sustainable solution. Click here and dive deeper in the comparisons.

Become a Love Warrior
A 3Bot for every single person will live on the Threefold Grid. Check out the brand new website of 3bot . I especially love the idea of Love Warriors.

Love Warriors believe that we need change now.

They act.
They are relentless.

Threefold IEO Information
The Threefold technology stack is probably the best-kept secret of the internet. It has had a long history. Read the interview with Kristof De Spiegeleer – we need a new internet which is not owned by a few and check out the IEO presentation to learn more. 

You serve the Threefold Project if you sign up for the IEO (initial exchange offer) before the official launch at the end of January >>>.  Thanks in advance, 1000 registrations before the launch in January is the aim.

Save the date
Threefold Network will bring change for good and we will co-create it. Time for  celebration and making plans. We will come together on Monday evening, the 20th of January. It is before the IEO launch date, there will be time for questions.

You are brilliant and the earth is hiring.

Paul Hawkin

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.

Rocking The Wall


30 years ago, the Berlin Wall fell.
Tinneke Beeckman, David Criekemans, and Robert Heirbaut were invited at
‘Vredescentrum in Antwerp’ to reflect on it. I shared with the presenters the belief that democratic freedom is a gift, and it is not for granted.

Tinneke Beeckman showed some ways to think about freedom. She mentioned the (potential) loss of digital privacy as one of the many threats for freedom (especially when you use the lens of ‘republican liberty’, a concept that she will explain further in her next book). Other threats are e.g. the rise of authorian leaders and change in our prosperity model.

Another reflection of the presenters; it is by civic and positive action that humanity moves forward. Who does believe we are lost ? Just join: in 2030, we will say that we have used our democratic power and passion for building up sustainable businesses and education. Okay ? A responsible internet will facilitate.

P.S.-1: Threefold is a project of Freeflow Nation, read the manifesto of Freeflow Nation here. Co:Inpetto supports it by becoming a chapter of it.
P.S.- 2: Enjoy Bruce Springsteen 16 months before the Berlin Wall fell – Rock and roll helped to topple the wall – Rocking the Wall.

The future is now. Roll up your sleeves and let your passion flow.
The country we carry in our hearts is waiting.

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.

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.

Code Is Law


Code impacts our life and society; it is professor Lawrence Lessig who introduced the saying “Code is law”. Our democratic society has to integrate new organizational thinking and responsibilities. The following questions for each code design are relevant:

1. How is code introduced? Who is involved?
2. How is code implemented?
3. How are the coded rules controlled?

Within Threefold Network each code design is associated with ‘a smart contract for IT’. ‘The smart contract for IT’ defines responsibilities for people involved and makes people accountable. How does it work?

  • Step 1: IT experts creates code which and offers it to the TFF grid to get approved before it is deployed for users.
  • Step 2:  a dedicated person prepare the code for step 3
  • Step 3: the code is offered to a smart contract on the blockchain
  • Step 4: a dedicated person / team reviews the code and create consensus before it is deployed.
  • Step 5: the code is deployed on the Threefold grid after consensus of step 4 and gets available for users.

The times they are a’ changin …
‘The smart contract for IT’ opens up the innovation space to redefine participation, responsibility and accountability for the digital age.

It is necessary from the very nature of things that power should be a check to power.

Baron de Montesquieu

Co-Design with new perspectives


The digital infrastructure with MyData – and blockchain principles bring along new design opportunities, opportunities within step 4, 5 and 6 of the extended Danish Design Ladder. Weconomics supports the learning process and organizations can be part of the journey.

Organisations can bring in challenges for the program – ‘Digital leadership and blockchain’. Find more information about the program here and offer your challenge here (Dutch only). Call me with your questions at 00 32 (0) 472 29 15 34.

Designing is about specifics. Unlike science or even art, which both deal meanly in abstraction, design brings the focus of our attention to the concrete.

We Are All Economists Now


‘We are all economists now’ is the title of the last chapter of the book of Kate Raworth – ‘Dougnut Economics’ – ‘Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist’. The seven ways to rethink economy are pictured below and explained in the book.

Thinking as a 21st-century-economist makes sense, it is hopeful and it don’t need to get locked in the current money system. Threefold is here to support us.

The infrastructure of Threefold isn’t locked in the mono-culture of today’s money by itself. And technology is opening up to get FIAT money, Threefold Token and other money systems complemented. More resilience is coming our way. The path for 21st-century-economists get grounded.

The technology stack within the Threefold eco-system and its governance model is getting ready to underpin the Weconomics Digital Infrastructure design. Co:Inpetto will support to connect design by design. The public use of Threefold Grid is planned for Q4 2019.


Rethinking Economics Antwerp will kick off the 14th of August.
Emagine Life Center invites you. More information here.
