Good reading. And good ideas. I will have to contemplate this further. I love the concept of open-source, but it's hard to translate that into a currency system. Seems monetary systems last longer if based on an item like gold, rather than ... ?

sure, this is actually a meta-system, so it is a framework to create a diversity of currencies. One could be backed by gold, one could be backed by carbon offsets, one could be created through volunteer service, etc. and people can design and change them as they find neccessarry, so instead of a currency collapsing due to poor design, it simply evolves!

thanks for reading.
