As I write this first blog from the heart of Silicon Valley, a race is on between new protocols that use distributed processing power to execute programmed tasks, from transferring money to governing companies.
These decentralised protocols will enable anybody with access to a computer and the internet to participate in an economy that will succeed capitalism as the prevailing paradigm.
Participalism is the system in which decentralised computing power allows all of us to invest, borrow, contribute, shop, manufacture, vote, donate, spend and earn without the need for a central authority.
This blog wants to document the new technologies, from Bitcoin and other digital currencies or protocols like Ethereum, to distributed manufacturing and smart contracts, that will shape Participalism as the new narrative for humanity.
