There are several ongoing projects worldwide that are moving ahead:
- Grantcoin (http://www.grantcoin.org/) moved to 2.0 and is rebranding to Manna (http://www.grantcoin.org/2017/07/07/introducing-manna-grantcoin-2-0/)
- The Berlin based Circles (http://aboutcircles.com/) project is progressing on development
- a ubicoin.network (https://medium.com/@annablume/universal-basic-income-ubi-coin-15ec91abcada) white paper has been launched that connects the idea of Basic Income with the protocol of Bancor.network (https://www.bancor.network/)
- There are other projects like http://ovie.io/ , https://www.givedirectly.org/ , https://www.winc-ev.org/ & http://catallax.info/ , http://www.resilience.me, ... all building on this same idea of introducing a Basic Income to society , not via politics, but via tech and a new collaborative economic model (with blockchain as a catalyst for this)
This meetup will be an online & offline event.
We will try to get representatives of each of the ongoing projects calling in on a google hangout session, present their specific project & contribute their views on the challenges they are facing.
Rhys Lindmark (https://www.linkedin.com/in/rhyslindmark/) will be joining on the call as moderator of this panel & to guide the discussions. There will also be room for Q&A of the audience.
We welcome both BasicIncome-enthusiasts as CryptoCurrency-lovers to Brussels to find out about the future of Basic Income and Cryptocurrency & discuss all this afterwards over a Belgian Beer.
