The Future of Money

Tuesday 8 May 2012

Have just spent a few hours discussing the Future of Money, hosted by James Bibby at Microsoft in Sydney and facilitated by Peter Vander Auwera from SWIFT/Innotribe. I'd like to flag that everyone understood that the session was way too short for such a big topic and everyone would agree that we just scratched the surface (not that the scratch would leave too much of a mark just yet). The session was a kick start for a group from a wide variety of interests: banks, payment providers' IT specialists and some specialty consultancies.

The framing of the day enabled us to get a handle on the way Innnotribe run their innovation events/interventions and the group was given some opportunities to discuss some ideas about money, where digitial currencies may be headed and to have some idea starters (provocations) tossed into our thinking space.  All in all a most enjoyable way to chat about what could become a very dry topic.  I was the first of the provocationists with the overall brief not to pose solutions but to toss some ideas at the group they might not have considered.  Value Systems came into play again.  I've made a couple of small adjustments to this PowerPoint to ease things for those not in the room, and the last slide includes some of the notes I took from the day.  Marcus Barber's Future of Money presentation

Tuesday 6 February 2018
Recently there was a purging, a market correction, a balancing of portfolios, call it what you like, but #Cryptocurrency like #Bitcoin & Ethereum got smashed, losing huge % of perceived value in a little more than a day. And now, two weeks or so later, the mainstream stock market is following suit. The 'Why' is to me, pretty obvious -
