We need to re-organise work, wages, cooperation, food, community, procurement, health, education, even government. Financial innovation is a critical part of the solution, re-imagining investment, ownership, pensions, money, cooperation, supply chains and resilience.

There are too many ideas to process, it can be hard to look beyond our specialist bubbles and impossible to coordinate, to agree, to plan.

#CoFi is a space for meeting, knowing each other, building trust, cooperation and hopefully, building power. In our first gathering we showcased payment systems architectures, and how credit is created and circulates and extinguished within them.

But finance is just numbers if it doesn’t serve the real economy. This July, the Crypto Commons Association is proud to offer CoFi 2, where we will start to bridge alternative finance to other alternatives!  #CoFi isn’t intended to be super-geeky; grassroots building requires building broad alliances rather than competing for market niches.

If you are still reading, you’re invited to Banja Luka at the end of June. We want to see practitioners not only in payments tech, but in community building and community finance, food networks, barter networks, business networks and everything adjacent.
