Hello. I am based in Barcelona Spain but I wanted to share with this community that Outlier Ventures, a blockchain/ICO investment fund based in London is leading an Initial Coin Offering with the goal of creating what they refer to as a Community ICO for the platform cooperative community.
Instead of focusing on a narrow vertical our goal with this ICO is to create a token that will be of use to support the platform cooperative movement globally. My startup in Barcelona will contribute code to the project as will a tech company in Munich and probably the Platform Cooperative Consortium based in NYC as well. Through the ICO we aim to support the global movement by creating a host of open source technology for a range of types of platform cooperatives from banking to worker´s coop, etc. My company, Coopify, is focused on urban-related platforms for mobility, asset sharing and skills sharing.
Our target is to issue the ICO prior to the end of 2017 but we are only now working on the white paper. If any of you are interested in learning more, or getting involved, please let us know!
