Future Diaries on Gitcoin… again
Fund Future Diaries on gitcoin.co/grants/5031/future-diaries!
Or listen to our guest appearance on the All for Climate Twitter Space featuring Artists for Climate, or our appearance on the GR14 Gitcoin Grants Giveathon!
Last year (at least from your perspective of time), our show was present in an exciting way to contribute to climate solutions in your universe. A few months later we’re part of it again!
Our studies in Multiversal Comparative Economics have revealed many different approaches to planetary economies across the multiverse. There is a very interesting one currently in place your universe. As we’ve mentioned before, you seem to have many different iterations of money, but in the recent years from your point of view in time, you’ve also been experimenting with different ways to produce money, which affects how an individual may perceive the very nature of money, and consequently how they can potentially manage and utilise it. We’ve been looking at the concept of “token economy” to get a better comprehension of this. One such approach is shaping around decentralization, and that seems to affect not only the utilitarian aspects of the related forms of money, but expands to different types of contracts and even various sociopolitical notions.
We’re impressed by the various attempts at conceiving and testing applicable models in practice, followed by learning and improving them as they go, which differs from purely theoretical approaches to economy. For example we recently noticed a concept called “quadratic funding”. It’s a model for raising funds, by first raising a matching pool, and then running a crowdfund campaign which is matched according to an algorithm through which the number of contributors matters more than the amount funded. The model claims to create more democracy in public goods funding decisions as a result!
They even have an interesting video that explains how quadratic funding works:
We have been inspired by the approach of applying a concept in practice and learning as you go, and contacts in your universe have been looking for an opportunity to put that to the test, as long as it matches our values. They’ve spotted a platform called Gitcoin, for raising funds using quadrating funding, that frequently hosts matching rounds thematically linked to important causes. We participated in one such round on the topic of “Climate solutions”. Our research confirms that the topic is one that calls for urgent action in your universe and our alter egos consider our broadcasts of great inspiration on the matter. Our mission is, after all, to inspire better presents and better futures. They’ve therefore created a grant for the show that has been approved and is ready for your support!
We’ve had some success with it in the last matching round, but the beauty of this type of grant is that it’s permanent and can continue to be part of several future rounds, as long as the theme is relevant. This is the second round our show is present in. If you’re part of this “Web3” world or you enjoy learning through practice, then go ahead and contribute to the Future Diaries grant for Climate solutions!

As you may have noticed, we of course had to pose once again as if the show is fictional, to not draw attention away from the call to action on the grant. But if you’ve been paying attention to this page you know the truth. Let’s keep it that way!
