GIVO - The Social Economy

Project description

We believe the economy should be inclusive, collaborative and optimized for humanity to prosper. It should allow (equal) opportunities for everyone (individuals, businesses and governments) to contribute to society with their skills, talents and resources while respecting our natural environment.​

As the engine of society's value exchange, the economy should utilize all available talents, skills and resources. No matter if it is deemed economically feasible from the traditional monetary perspective. In crisis situations money (not having it) is a huge obstacle to mobilize resources to the places where it has the most impact.​

GIVO replaces money with algorithms.

The Covid-19 crisis provides us with a unique opportunity to source talents and resources and direct these forms of value towards the problems society experiences in this crisis.​

Our solutions

GIVO Mobile App

Our user platform allows multilateral bartering of goods and services without the use of money. This is achieved by matching people's offers in circles which results in receiving from, and giving to different people. The platform is powered by our 'Atomic Loops' engine, which is designed to operate fully peer-2-peer for our future WEB3 implementation.

Started: April 2019 (Odyssey Hackathon) State: Alpha - Ongoing technical testing

GIVO Community Web Portal

Our business and Social projects web portal. This is where businesses and social initiatives interact with the userbase. Anyone can start a Social initiative and crowdsource local resources. Businesses can express their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) by engaging with their community through offering of contributions.
