I’ve been looking into crypto tokens/ICOs a lot lately, and the focus on decentralized networks etc seem to strike a similar tone to the platform co-op way of thinking.
In particular of the companies I’ve found, Colu are soon to launch their own token sale, with their mission as described below from one of their Medium posts:
"What makes Colu truly special though, is that it really embodies the notion of a shared economy. Instead of subjecting consumers and businesses to superfluous fees as part of their payment process, the Colu network will use cryptocurrencies to distribute the savings back to the network’s stakeholders. This could drive people to have an actual stake in their local economy. Not a theoretical one.
This is the essence of a shared economy. Colu seeks to empower the people that enable the shared economy and to allow them to potentially benefit from their economy’s economic growth.
I believe that Colu is the model of a fair and just economic evolution of the shared economies. It empowers the people and divides the wealth in a more equal and just way. "
I was just wondering what this community thought of something like this? Potential to launch a co-op version?
