Unleashing Value in the Commons Economy

 

Before the explosion of blockchain ledgers in 2008, currency design was a little-known field where community-focused economies grew as pragmatic responses to blockers to effective sharing and exchange of resources. This course approaches token engineering, cryptoeconomics, and cryptoaccounting from the perspective of this long-cultivated wisdom on designing economies of deep wealth (before and beyond money!). In it we will answer and explore:

 

What can currency innovation bring to the future of your business and to your fundraising strategy?

 

How can currency design, beyond money, inform the way you use data and analyze metrics?

 

What are some of the ways currencies can be risky and what can you do about it?

 

What You’ll Learn

 

This series is designed to take you from casual interest in economic systems and currency design all the way to implementation of your own ideas! The first course here provides conceptual foundations. As such, it is partially comprised of case study sessions by currency design practitioners that have implemented successful currencies or have made major contributions to non-monetary value accounting tools.

Upon completion you will

 

  • Have a grasp on crucial problems in current systems of money and measurement,
  • understand currency design from a “living systems” perspective,
  • be familiar with the design of incentives,
  • understand the “currency life cycle” as a design and governance tool,
  • know how to use the “levels of wealth” graph to target specific problems and assess the impact of interventions,
  • understand how cryptocurrencies can aid in the creation of commons-centric economies,
  • know common causes of failure of currencies,
  • understand mutual credit accounting,
  • and be able to recognize patterns used in complementary currencies and why they are important
