Welcome @lightnode93:matrix.org to the Communities room! Feel free to introduce yourself or ask any question! If you want to be or help us build one of the first Communities (DACs) or Campaigns on the DApp, please introduce yourself here and take a minute to fill out the form I just sent you!
|20:24:12||danibelle||Hey lightnode93 - thanks for joining! I see you covered all the main channels 😀 Let us know what interests you, where you are looking to contribute, and how Giveth can be of service to you too!|
|20:28:45||lightnode93||Thanks danibelle, I have been a longtime fan of Giveth so just trying to catch up on all the recent news and developments, and get more familiar with Riot. I've been the Community Manager at SpankChain since early this year, and right now what interests me is bridging all the different projects in the Ethereum and adjacent crypto spaces so I can help to shine a light on what's happening, what's possible, and to continue to educate in new, fun and exciting ways. 😄|
|20:29:58||danibelle||oh, ha hey! We probably met at DevCon. Did you end the conference with hair that matches the text color above?|
|20:30:28||lightnode93||I didn't make it to DevCon this year 😭|
|20:30:57||lightnode93||I was ready and committed to dying my hair, but had to stay back as it was a busy time for the fam|
|20:31:16||danibelle||awww. well we got to meet some of your team there 😆 We are here building bridges too - happy to meet you in the middle!|
|20:31:28||lightnode93||same, good to be here!|

In reply to @abram.symons:matrix.orgAbram: Not sure if you have come across this one - https://ethichub.com/ They are offering low interest loans to farmers. Imagine now a scenario a bit like Kiva, where you get individuals to front the collatoral, then offer zero interest loans. Of course the individual is now taking on risk, so you would need to mitigate the risk somehow. Perhaps it would be calculated that x percent of loans fail, and one would need a reserve. thus you could maybe do something then that a donor put in a 10% donation and a 90% collaboral loan. the 10% goes into the reserve to support failed loans that never get paid back and 90% supports the vast majority of loans that do. Thus the donors contribution gets leveraged.. anyhow just brainstorming..

In reply to @mroberts10:matrix.orgHey michael,
such systems can easily implemented as a layer on top of Ether Bank.
a company can be founded that uses Ether Bank to provide loans for farmers even with zero interest.
Such company needs three things: a. a trusted network of farmers with a low default rake in their loans b. investors who are trust the company and are willing to lock their ETH as collateral. c. Donors who are willing to compensate for the default rate.
there are two points here.
In reply to @danibelle:matrix.orghi @danibelle:matrix.org , let me attach this dossier ehich includes more updated info about Connecting Cultures
|11:07:22||Gustavo||we have discussed this week about the different uses that we could be implementing with blockchain, and we will be focusing mainly on a Connecting Cultures DAC design, do you think we can arrange a meeting soon so we can spot specific opportunities for collaboration?|

In reply to @abram.symons:matrix.orgThats really interesting and fantastic that you see the platform as a place where people can build a layer on top of the platform. How do you see coordinating with existing models like micro-finance networks? Do you see a value in coordinating with them, or instead defining new networks. I'm quite neutral here as I see positives to learning from past models and mistakes, but also positives in defining a whole new approach.
|22:43:38||mroberts10||Here's a very interesting artist community moving to the blockchain for interest: "We are a community of artists, curators and other cultural workers in Athens Greece, working on establishing a collective, democratic and fair cultural economy since 2015. As C.A.S.A., we have organised many exhibitions, festivals and events, aand have participated and collaborated in in others, that have provided an important platform for this generation of artists, both in Greece and abroad (Tokyo, Germany). You can see our of our work here: http://www.contemporaryartshowcaseathens.com/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbWGDjMRIoSEO6zenj-2ocQ At the moment we are developing an experiment in applying crypto-economics and crypto-primitives to solve problems when starting, maintaining, and growing communities of cultural workers, defending culture's role one of the many “commons” that make up a free and democratic society: a society of free speech and free exchange. We are currently preparing a white paper describing this project, the Trojan Foundation, with Trojans being the native community currency. The Trojan Foundation is a cultural intervention that envisions a new form of cultural institution that can be transparent and accountable in all of its functions, and governed democratically. Its goal is to bootstrap and sustain a decentralized network run by the community and contributors — one in which the value of participation could be redistributed back to those who created it in the first place and on their own terms, as a field-specific model of redistribution.|
