In this episode, Jakob Seidler and Steven Morris are talking with Will Ruddick, founder of Grassroots Economics in Kenya, where he has lived for the last 14 years. Grassroots Economics has helped develop communities design their own value flow systems around the world and thereby helped thousands of small businesses, churches and schools take an active role in their own economy and development. After transitioning from paper ledgers to centralized digital infrastructure, they have now chosen to use an open-access, blockchain based approach to help communities implement the results of a their design process into a local currency/voucher system within days. We talk about all that and most importantly: the role of trust in fostering community. Enjoy!
