Swarm City on Ethereum: Bonus Interview with Matt Carano

In this special bonus episode of the Neocash Radio podcast, we talk more with Matt Carano, who works with Swarm City’s “Communications Hive”, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).

Swarm City decentralized sharing economy on the Ethereum blockchain with SWT tokens

Matthew Carano talks about Swarm City, decentralized ridesharing, SWT tokens on the Ethereum blockchain

Matt joined us on this week’s Wednesday night podcast, and now he’s speaking with us about Swarm City, now that they’ve branched off from the mess that was Christopher David/Arcade City. Matt talks with us a little bit about how Swarm City and its Ethereum-based SWT tokens are looking at ways to create peer-to-peer sharing without any intermediaries. Decentralized ridesharing is the first use case—picture Uber and Lyft without the middleman taking a big cut—but Matt tells us how else Swarm City is looking to connect users directly.

Popular cryptocurrency exchange service Changelly has recently made it possible for users to buy SWT tokens with their debit or credit card, which as Matt explains, could allow for all of the cryptocurrency workings to happen behind the scenes if a service provider made a UI using Changelly. (As always, we are not providing financial advice or recommending buying or selling anything; we are merely reporting news.)

We also learn a little more about Swarm City’s upcoming releases—Boardwalk and Storefront—and Matt also talks about “Trelleth”, a free add-on that he co-created for popular project management tool Trello. Trelleth uses the Ethereum blockchain to tokenize task cards, which “gives anyone the ability to organize, communicate, and crowdfund any project and any task all from Trello.”

Love Liberty? New Film Gives 101 Reasons You Belong in New Hampshire

Feature-Length Documentary Chronicles Efforts of Free State Project to Move 20K Libertarians to Small NE State; Interviews Include Free-Market Titans of Finance, Agriculture, Business, and Media

The Free State Project (FSP) started with an idea: if 20,000 libertarian activists could all move to one small state with a friendly culture, that would be enough to create true “Liberty In Our Lifetime.” In 2003, New Hampshire was chosen. Since then, more than 16,000 people have signed the Statement of Intent to move when the target is hit – and over 1,600 participants have already made the move.

Today, two of these early movers have released an original documentary on the project, entitled 101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire, now available for free on Youtube.

The film is a love letter from these 21st century pioneers to their newfound home. It is told through the personal stories of fellow FSP participants and interviews with liberty’s leading lights, including investor Peter Schiff, Food Inc.’s Joel Salatin, Patrick Byrne of Overstock.com, Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine, and several more.

For the first time, viewers are taken inside this intentional community to understand how it functions and why it chose a rural Northeastern state as its refuge. The filmmakers show a face of New Hampshire that even lifelong residents may not have seen before. For instance, the state is now home to one of the largest communities of active users of Bitcoin, the digital currency that has global fanfare and intrigue in its first few years of existence. Also, FSP participants have inspired the New Hampshire legislature to lead the charge against unconstitutional federal legislation, setting a defiant example to other states on issues from national ID cards to Obamacare.

But aside from what they’ve brought to their new home, many Porcupines – as FSP participants call themselves due to the animal’s agreeable nature and spiny defenses – remark on how much they appreciate New Hampshire for what it already is: a place where small is still considered beautiful. The film celebrates the state’s high rate of small business ownership, accessible political system, and tolerance of eccentric individualism. Speaking of New Hampshire, famed independent farming advocate Joel Salatin says, “I salute any environment that unshackles innovation and creativity from industrial-scale compliance and protocols.” Mike Vine, former organizer of the FSP’s annual PorcFest, puts it another way: “New Hampshire chose freedom, and it is now the wealthy state among its neighbors. It’s like a microcosm of what happened with America and people moving from Europe… we chose freedom and this is where the opportunity was where anyone could come and make a life for themselves.”

But life is not all business in the Granite State. Two participants explained how moving to New Hampshire allowed them to realize more charitable dreams. Kate Baker, of the Network for Education Opportunity, uses New Hampshire’s generous education tax credit program to secure scholarships for students to attend alternative schools. Amanda Bouldin operates a charity called Shire Sharing, which, with the help of her fellow Porcupines, now delivers Thanksgiving meals to over 300 families across the Merrimack Valley.

“What [participants of] the Free State Project are managing to do is to put their money where their mouths [are]. Physically getting up, across the country, and saying, ‘let’s go someplace, let’s demonstrate the power of these ideas,’” explains Emmy-winning investigative reporter Ben Swann. “There’s a lot of philosophy that surrounds liberty, there’s a lot of pontificating, there are a lot of people thinking about it and talking about it, but here in New Hampshire, people are doing it.”

101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire reflects the most optimistic and touchingly human story to come out of the waves of discontent that led to the Ron Paul Revolution, the Tea Party, and the Occupy protests. For this small but growing group of pioneers, there are 101 reasons to stop being cynical – and start a new life in New Hampshire.
