WHY A TOKEN COMMONS PROTOCOL

With the proliferation of crypto-tokens and decentralized platforms, there comes a need for a kind of “meta-protocol” or framework that provides access to all the requisite services to have a trusted and governable ensemble of services and tokens that meet not only the expectations of users, but regulators as well. In short, there need to be tokens that provide access to not just individual services, but a constellation of services that perform according to a predictable and enforceable social contract – and in some cases, are compliant with certain international financial and privacy regulations. ...

The Big SWYTCH

Swytch is a crypto-token of value that uses open source blockchain and a robust Proof of Production consensus to facilitate, accelerate, maximize, and verify investments in renewable solar resources worldwide. Swytch rewards renewable energy investments (rooftop solar, distributed utility, hydroelectric, wind turbine, and large-scale grid scale solar projects) with crypto-tokens that are issued through an independently verifiable algorithm.

From large-scale industrial power generation to small residential investments, Swytch tokens can be minted anywhere electricity is produced and consumed. Swytch provides geo-stamped credentials for production and consumption based on actual carbon reduction and displacement of fossil fuels.

EVOLVABLE TOKEN COMMONS: TRUSTED MULTI-SECTOR HARMONIZATION


One of the pivotal differences between mechanical (free market) and evolvable Commons (adaptive control is that markets reward capture and concentration of value whereas an evolutionary models incentivize generation and propagation of value. The notion of “increasing returns,” first articulated by Brian Arthur of the Santa Fe Institute, argues that within digital networks, goods and services, are not rivalrous as the more they are shared, the greater their net value. In a Commons there is no need to offset the issuance of a token or currency against some form of debt instrument, as Commons tokens are not a rivalrous good. In other words, if there is socially recognized value creation, there is increasing returns for all. The supply of Commons tokens can be algorithmically governed to maintain a dynamic equilibrium of supply and saturation. Such an approach is impossible without full digitalization and evolvable algorithms.

WHY A “FAT” COMMONS PROTOCOL

WHY A “FAT” COMMONS PROTOCOL

Fred Wilson and his colleagues at Union Square Ventures were among the first to invest in and support decentralized services, bitcoin, and the blockchain. They were also among the first to see the significance of open protocols over applications. They pointed out that the majority of the value resided in the protocol “layer” rather than the applications layer. Hence, unlike traditional platforms where the applications layer was “fat” with value, now it was the protocol layer.

PROOF OF STANDING

Participation in the governance of the Commons would be controlled by a Proof of Standing protocol that would be based upon how a member is directly affected by an action or decision AND their competency and experience in making a decision. The concept of “standing” is based upon long established principles of jurisprudence whereby the legitimacy of participating in or benefiting from a process is subject to a variety of tests.

PEER TO PEER TERMS OF SERVICE AGREEMENT: P2P(TOS)

All members of a Commons would be subject to a Peer to Peer Terms of Service Agreement that establishes all members as peers – whether as individuals or entities. It further establishes the rights and duties of all members of a Commons where all would have their own self-sovereign identities and personal data stores.

THE PERMISSION VERSES PERMISSIONLESS

Today, a fundamental schism divides the blockchain community, pitting those that support a Public or “Permissionless Ledger” against those that support a Private or “Permissioned Ledger”. The former community is primarily comprised of the original Bitcoin and Ethereum communities, who espouse fully anonymized and decentralized blockchain services and tokens that no authority of any kind can control.

CITY COMMONS GOVERANCE PROTOCOL


A city is much more than its geography or its physical layout and composition. It has its own character, history, personality, and unique way of organizing itself to express, protect and advance the interests of its residents. Yet much of the governance and planning of a city is framed through zoning and the management of its physical resources and assets: – number and types units of housing, public transportation, open space, entertainment, culture, mix of or retail and commercial space, and new jobs and schools. Cities are still managed and planned according to a static industrial model, composed of independent sectors: housing, education, transportation, employment, and cultural. Each of the sectors are seen as independent entities – housing, transportation, energy, retail, commercial, education, human resources, healthcare, etc. Yet in reality, decisions in one sector affect all other sectors, they too are parts of an interdependent network whose interactions characterize the vitality, livability, innovativeness, and character of a city. ...
