Here’s a cryptocurrency that I can finally believe in: Eco.

A few months ago, I wrote a blog post about why I’ve been staying clear of cryptocurrency. My reasons included:

  1. Not a viable means of exchange…. not even with the most popular one, Bitcoin, can people pay for rent, food, or healthcare… the basics of living.

The new cryptocurrency Eco aims to solve these problems.

What I most appreciate about their aims, design, and values (based on reading their whitepaper), are the following characteristics:

  1. Reputable. Instead of anonymous miners, the generation of Eco tokens is run by a verified network of universities. “will initially accept approximately a few hundred nodes, targeting universities across 50+ nations. This group can then expand to more organizations based on transparent nomination and acceptance (for example by 80% of verified nodes) until most geographies have several operational nodes.”

It was just announced in March 2018, so we’ll see what really happens with this.

If you’re interested and you align with their values, it is easy to get in line for some free Eco tokens. You can sign up here:

(I’m not affiliated with Eco in any way. Simply an early fan.)
