Circlenomic Resource Network
Tokens, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain technologies have appeared as a democratizing force in our world. A network based on resources such as recyclable materials that are monetized with Tokens, allows for the simultaneous creation of new business models, the conversion of resources into wealth, cleaning up environment and the building of a new system with currently existing materials and infrastructure—powered by a software-driven, self-organizing, intrinsically-motivated, decentralized workforce.
In the meltdown of existing economic structures, people often feel that there is a lack of wealth, but we are surrounded by it. It’s only a matter of changing perspective–shifting Paradigms to resource based thinking, and questioning the idea of value, what we consider valuable and why. The mainstream value systems in place continue to omit the environment, societal, cultural, human and other costs. New technologies and economic models present us today with tools that we can use to transform our world.
In traditional manufacturing models, the raw materials are removed from the earth, and converted into a form that is sold as a product to manufacturers. In the case of food packaging, the materials are trucked and processed a number of times and finally filled with food by a food packager. The actual use of the packaging by the end consumer is only a small part of it’s lifespan. After it’s planned lifespan, it too often goes into the trash and ends up in a landfill, incinerated and in the air, on the ground or in the ocean. Rather than being natural capital wealth, in the aforementioned places, it poisons, kills and spoils the natural networks and beauty of our world.
The discarded containers are made of the same materials as the raw materials that are put into the machines to make them at the beginning of the cycle. It’s the Law of Conservation, where matter cannot be created or destroyed—only transformed. Consumers (or Introducer in the Circlenomic Network) have been conditioned to think of resources and raw materials as trash—a problem that has to be solved at the end of it’s useful life cycle—BUT NOT AS WEALTH. The consumer / Introducer pays for the container, and pays again for it to be removed and for the ¨problem” to be solved by sanitation systems. The consumer / Introducer pays for the containers when they buy the products, and they own them. They can choose to sell them and recuperate their initial outflow of capital with Circlenomic Tokens–giving value to these useful upcyclable, recyclable materials.
Deposit systems exist in parts of the world that charge the consumer a small fee for containers, so that the materials can be kept out of the trash and cleaned or re-used to make more containers, rather than remove more raw materials from the Earth. The customer pays a fixed amount and always receives a fixed amount back. In too many places, the deposit system does not exist and this is an area of interest for Circlenomic.
The Circlenomic Ecosystem
Circlenomic is offering a micro-economic system, that is based on the abundant by-products of industrial and consumer activity in our world. The Introducer in the Circlenomic network is incentivized with Tokens to place pre-existing materials into Circlenomic’s decentralized network. In a model based on Tokens.
When Circlenomic’s Tokens are exchanged for materials that have value, the Tokens then become associated with that value and the value of the network itself, the services it provides and the other forms if capital such as natural, human, social, constructed and external capital, etc. The Tokens can be used for products or services within the Circlenomic network or exchanged for other stores of value.
The workforce is to be organized by a gamified, decentralized app (dapp), using intrinsic motivators which will foster self-networking and governance. The app will also include a decentralized marketplace, where resources and offers for resources can be listed for exchange. Subgroups can also organize and entrepreneurs have the opportunity to use the system to create new opportunities for others.
Within the app-based, self-organizing elements of Circlenomic exists the potential for roles. A participant could embody one or multiple roles. Each individual would have access to Circlenomic’s marketplace, employing a system for reputation and gamification to intrinsically motivate the participants. The participant will have access to everything necessary to engage in entrepreneurship in the Circlenomic Network and simultaneously in the global economy:
Introducers (Consumers) are people who buy products from retail outlets that are held in containers. They exchange those containers for Circlenomic’s Tokens, introducing the resources into the Circlenomic ecosystem. They could also introduce new people to Circlenomic. Introducers can exchange the Tokens they’ve acquired with Creators and others for the eventual finished products in the Circlenomic Ecosystem.
Traders exchange Tokens for materials with introducers, other traders and/or with Artisans for Tokens or finished products.
Creators transform the resources received from the traders into new products to then be exchanged for fiat currency, Cryptocurrency or Tokens. Implementing low-energy manufacturing practices / techniques, ideally via upcycling requires a minimum of energy input, which reduces time and money needed to arrive at a finished product, and reduces environmental impact. Recycling is another option, processing the materials into another form, which can then be turned into new shapes and new materials.
Circlenomic tokens are listed on the Waves Platform decentralized exchange and can be exchanged for other stores of value there.
Initially, Circlenomic will airdrop tokens to get the processes started. Airdropped Tokens can be applied for from Circlenomic with a one page business plan sent to Circlenomic at: [email protected] , describing the following:
Basic information: Name, contact information, location…
Customer Segments: Who are your mass and niche markets?
Value Proposition: What are you offering and why are you different?
Channels: Look at the phases your products go through. This is everything from awareness and distribution to after-sales service.
Customer Relationships: How are you building relationships with customers and is it working?
Revenue Streams: What are your revenue streams? Direct sales? Is the product a service?
Key Resources: What resources do you require to function? These can include physical, human, financial and intellectual.
Key Activities: Ask yourself what activities need to take place in order to deliver on your value proposition?
Key Partnerships: Write down who your key suppliers and partners are and how they contribute to your overall goals.
Cost Structure: Look at fixed and variable costs so that you can see what can be improved upon.
Environmental Impact: How will your activities effect the environment, community and accrue natural capital?
The Tokens and resources are open to anyone in the world, and are to be used to create new opportunities, fund and finance new ventures and ideas. Circlenomic’s strategy is to establish a network of creators around the world who can create products and fill orders close to where they are ordered, to eliminate shipping processes and costs.
With Decentralized Manufacturing, shifting from consumptive, destructive models to small and medium sized decentralized, sustainable production models and methods shift the balance of power back to the individual, making production more accessible, and increasing opportunities for growth and prosperity. The acquisition and utilization of free and low-cost materials allows Circlenomic to more cost-effectively compete in the global economy.
Employing closed loop systems and whole systems design enable Circlenomic to sustain and expand activities, increasing it’s ability to bring abundance to more people in the world. Combined with a 3D printer and printing filament extruder, Circlenomic’s system uncovers a goldmine of wealth and prosperity in 3D and 4D printing that is accessible to many people in the world.
Portable battery technologies provide the ability to store energy and use it where it is needed to power the thing we use today. The Power producer could allow others to charge their batteries and devices in exchange for Tokens. Monetizing compost heating and evaporative cooling services are an accessible way for the average person to turn waste into power and money.
One of the foundations of Circlenomic is the growing of materials using advanced agricultural systems such as Aeroponics, Aquaponics, Hydroponics, Algaculture and Anthroponics to grow food, raw materials and fuel.
The self-replicating nature of plants literally offer infinite growth. Composting provides rich nutrients the plants need and heat that can be used for optimizing temperatures for spaces and Aquaponic fish tanks. Composting combined with thermoelectrics produce electricity.
Monetizing biological materials to produce compost, IBC-based biogas, and using greywater to grow resources such as textiles are more ways that participants in Circlenomic can reduce costs to be able to compete more effectively in the global economy.
Circlenomic’s founder, Mathew Phillips has partnered with Appunik https://Appunik.com to create a powerful and capable team. Circlenomic is to be democratically operated with distributed governance. Following success, the physical manifestations of the Circlenomic network are to be reproduced and placed where they are needed in the world to help people create prosperity.
Any money generated from these efforts will be used for costs associated with starting Circlenomic: buying the land needed to create Eco-villages, building units to create space to be used to house the exchange of resources, decentralized manufacturing, decentralized agriculture and decentralized power production.
Circlenomic Tokens are intended to have a value connected to the commodities they represent, but are to be left to the market to decide. Participants who posses Circlenomic’s Tokens become members of the network and are entitled to access to the Circlenomic network and products within it, in the case of limited resources, up to the value of their Tokens. Circlenomic’s Tokens are verifiable on the Waves blockchain. They are locked, and no new units can be added.
The Circlenomic Token is based on the Waves Platform and has a total supply of 11,111,111,111 Tokens. The founder and team will retain 10% of the total supply of the tokens.
