Give initial feedback to aspiring projects in the blockchain industry.

In this project we are posting tasks on behalf of aspiring blockchain businesses. Those tasks will be asking for initial feedback on interesting projects we got in touch with.

The idea of this project is to showcase the collective intelligence of our community and to introduce businesses to our innovative co-creation approach. With your help we can further prove our concept and foster the platform.

 

Projects posted here are freshly introduced on Crowdholding, so Crowdholders can make their first contact with the startups, earning some YUPies.

All feedbacks are taken in account by our Research and Development Team to improve Crowdholding’s usage in multiple ways, e.g. question design, the collective decision making process and other UI/UX improvements.

We are looking forward to your contributions!

Weekend Debate: Universal Basic Income or not?

task  
Crowdholding attended the Hackers Congress at Paralelni Polis in Prague last weekend. It was full of interesting perspectives and presentations towards decentralization. One topic that arose from the event was whether Universal Basic Income (UBI) would be necessary for the future, where the government would supply the needs of giving a basic income to all citizens. It was interesting to see the unpopular reaction of attendees towards this idea and to hear both arguments. So lets go over the pros and cons regarding theories people expressed.ConObviously UBI would give more government control towards citizens and their (fiat) money. This would also involve the increasing of taxes towards the wealthier brackets. The question is, if the public received a basic income to live, would they put their time to try to earn more, and work on their own entrepreneur projects? Or would the majority not do anything at the comfort of having what they need. For the people on this side, they believe we would see a reduction of work, which you can see some examples in countries like Germany, who in fact need more workers as their social unemployment and welfare program is some of the top in the world, and are not filling positions in their growing economy. Thus an increase in immigration into their country is planned to help support filling those positions. ProOthers see a UBI as a need to protect the population from the speed of automation. As technology and automation increases exponentially, less and less jobs will be available. In addition, the argument that we are all born with a lottery card. Some people are born in a good money upbringing from a successfully economic family, while others are born in poorer regions of the world/country. People on the pro side believe that a UBI supports people born in conditions that they can't get out of. And a UBI gets their chance to compete.  Some have talked about a Universal Basic Share system which calculates a % of the GDP to be shared with the populous. Thus if people don't work, the GDP shrinks and they get less. Lets have a debate!  What side are you on? Do you have some interesting insights that could persuade one way to another? Are we better off with or without a UBI? We look forward to the comments!
