From Mint to P2P currency
Few months ago, in my 19 floors tower of Santiago I met in the lift an american neighbor, Ken. Who know why we decided to discuss and drink beers together? Anyway. Ken, was CFO of a classic mid-size company in US till 200x. After 2008’s crisis, he has been gently pushed out as so many other American citizens. Ken was in his sixties and it’s a more than a reason for a CEO to offer you the freedom of looking for a new job by yourself especially when everybody is sliming down. But Ken is that kind of american activist, fascinated by knowledge and its sharing. During 30 years, he tried to teach youngster (like me) and introduce them to micro and macro economy secrets. As a hobby and a proof of concept, he also developed a mint business to wedge it’s own currency. Ken believe in simple things like : “The only value of a coin is it’s own value.” So his coins are available all over the world now.
If I write that post about Ken it’s because I believe the Digital Generation have the duty to rethink the basis of its political and economical world. We have to re-invent the basis of the economy if they dont want to have to fly away from their own country in 30 years.
