Join the Complementary Currency Alliance
It’s time for the Complementary Currency movement to form an Alliance.
For far too long, communities have kept their distance and interacted with others only when it was necessary and beneficial for them to do so. The result has been fragmentation of efforts, a lack of common understanding of key concepts, and very slow development progress compared to other similar movements such as the Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency movements.
Despite numerous efforts at bridging the various challenges to creating an alliance: linguistic, geographic, financial, different types of systems, etc, our movement has yet to create an effective international association, compared to other movements for positive economic and social change like micro-finance, fair trade and the credit union movement.
I propose to establish a Leader’s Group, a network of collective leadership of the CC Movement that represents region, gender, language and the many various types of system under one association, and secondly a network of Activity Groups where individuals, organizations and companies working in certain areas may meet, interact and ideally pool and share their resources in a commons, rather than to hoard resources or keep them secret from others.
The Alliance is open to all individuals and organizations of any type (For Profit/Non-Profit/Ad-Hoc) that consider themselves to be a part of the complementary/community/parallel/cryptographic currency movement. This includes coders, promoters, educators, researchers, authors, consultants and others who see themselves working towards a new monetary system based on ideals and principles that are important to them.
