Pay It Forward Hero Economy


ANNOUNCEMENTS | TWITTER | FACEBOOK |


(ARG puzzles - Currently): REDDIT | STEEMIT


-Official Website-

Main Infographics (Pattern/Architecture(1) , Pay It Forward Economy (2))

Roadmap 2.0 (needs revision)

The "Pay It Forward Hero Economy" is an economy that seeks to reward paying it forward and to actively bring out Heroes in our society to make giving back to others an actual thing.

It draws inspiration from existing projects both failed and successful such as the DAO, DigixDao, Ethereum, Synereo AMP, Steem.it, XEM, Ethereum, and of course Bitcoin.

Who Is Behind The Hero Economy (The Guardians of Life led by):
  • Kieran Murghein (Lead Developer & Designer)
  • Decentralized Heroes From All Over Who Volunteer To Assist

I am Kieran Murghein, the lead game developer and CEO from Zenratstudios. I have been a quiet participant of the Bitcoin community and world since 2009 though it is only recently that my understanding and active participation in the community has increased. What this means is that I have used Bitcoin, and traded altcoins, lurked on forums, observed, but have rarely participated socially except for rare instances to learn the mindset of the community and to ask questions.

I have followed the different solutions of altcoins, participated as a trader, buyer and a small miner, exploring the worlds and learning. Blockchain has the potential to change the world in ways that I believe can help solve the many issues we have.

The Goal is to: build a nonprofit game and book company by day, Hero economy by night that acts as a bridge between the virtual and digital world, that will attract and grow Heroes who want to make a difference, and that will help to eliminate or reduce poverty through education and resources among all the people who participate offering an alternative solution to the world's economy. One of our biggest missions is global adoption.

To learn more about the services we try to offer see our infographic and read through our website.

About the Pattern Architecture of One Million Heroes

About the Pay It Forward Hero Economy

Goals:
  • To learn from the Giants who have come before us and integrate different solutions from those Giants.
  • To create a self-sustainable virtual economy
  • Build a bridge between the virtual and digital world (DigixDao has a wonderful system that does this using Gold as a Resource to back its tokens)
  • To work and integrate Reputation and Referral systems (such as what XEM has done)
  • To create a system for earning Interest for participants who participate in the economy but don't spend outside the economy (similar to XEM's Harvesting system), (this keeps money within the Hero economy so that it has time to grow and expand).
        
  • To work and Integrate with Gateways like Coinbase, Circle, Shapeshift & Exodus, and perhaps to use those APIs to create an alternative system that does the same.
  • To allow for people to be the custodians of their own funds (the way Shapeshift has done).
  • To build a new an unobtrusive but optional economic system that solves the problems of our old society while simultaneously makes the old system obsolete
  • Global Adoption – our biggest mission is getting people who need our service to adopt it but who may have avoided digital currencies up to this point.
  • To reduce and or eliminate poverty in all the places our Heroes and Guardians are located (no more waiting for Presidents, Kings & Queens to save us, we go out and do it ourselves)
  • To attract brilliant minds and reward heroes.
  • To be a blockchain alternative to the Nobel Peace Prizes (but without the bueararcy), the United Nations & The University of Peace
  • To educate and create Heroes and Guardians of Life
  • Agnostic, Omnist, Synchretism – the goal is to be inclusive, unifying rather than divisive, to bring opposing groups together as a whole, to do this we hope to integrate currency agnostic features and to have a platform agnostic solution that works with all other blockchains and currencies (our goal is not to compete but to cooperate, to live synchronously with other systems, governments and platforms. To this affect we're just one Asset among many)
  • To be self-sufficient, expanding, to constantly grow and evolve.
  • For Zenratstudios to be its own entity separate from its creators.
  • To structure ourselves in such a way where Big Governments do not control or own us but by which we are still held accountable for our actions.
  • And More
Features:
  • Treasury – 90% of all money we earn initially will be added to a treasury that is divided into two sections 45% is the treasury of the people and the other 45% is the treasury of the workers who serve the people.
        
  • Resource based economy – inspired by Jacque Frescoe, where all resources become the common heritage of all the inhabitants, not just a select few.
        
  • Co-op – We function like a co-op where the members the co-op serves are also the members. Members start out as Champions, when they graduate to Hero members who receive services but also become co-owners in their own way, having a say in the overall direction of the service. People who give back the most in some way (whether it be time or financially), receive the most, and have the most say in the direction of our community, services and products.
        
  • Checks & Balances - checks and balances built in place to prevent bad actors who climb to the top.
        
  • Reputation system – Transactions of kindness, whenever you spend Hero Points you earn Karma Points, Karma is your reputation and works like a "Bonus" or "Multiplier" the more karma you have the more Hero Points you can earn. Only those who have Karma can receive scholarships, rewards, and grants.
        
  • Referral System – dependent on the reputation system, if you help A who helps B who helps C, you each get a percentage of karma points.
        
  • Visual Blockchain – a way to see the transactions in place on a visual node tree, with colours to represent the health of the system and to see how far your actions have spread and affected others.
        
  • Expiration Dates – Reputation has an expiration date, if you stop participating within the system your karma diminishes gradually until it is gone. In order to receive rewards you have to contribute in some way (example, paying subscription fees, trading Hero Points (you receive karma points for trading), participating in our games and community and more).
        
  • Earning Interest – similar to Harvesting & Mining in XEM and Bitcoin one can place their Hero Points aside and let them grow 'interest', by not spending or cashing out Hero Points we reward with Karma Points which increase
        
  • Rewards, Scholarships & Grants – built into the system is a feature that rewards those who have the largest percentage of Karma Points to assist them with their personal non-profit or non violent activist projects, or to better themselves, their lives and families.
        
  • Smart Contracts – like Ethereum and Counterparty we want to have smart contracts on our blockchain.
        
  • Keepers – similar to the DAO we want to have keepers who can monitor, prevent and reverse bad actors and transactions. A problem with the DAO was that everything needed to pass a vote and nothing got done. Then people argued over whether or not to hardfork on Ethereum and that had to pass a vote through miners, who had the most money to purchase equipment to run the system. Keepers similar to Curators will be enacted to prevent abuse and reverse transactions of bad actors, and being miner free we work to provide a fairer solution that's not based on how much 'money' you have but how much you contribute to the system and have paid it forward.
        
  • Lineage/ Family Tree – those who contribute the most to the system are invited to become part of the family tree, they graduate from Hero and are invited to join the Guardian of Life. In this way only members can become Keepers and Guardians.
        
  • Decentralized Physical Headquarters – as we grow we will begin giving grants and planting physical headquarters around the world that serve their local community in some way, these headquarters must offer community gardens, water, education, workshops (inspired by Mining Towns, Google, and ecovilages). They are designed to be self-sufficient, are given grants by our company to operate and serve as refuges and sanctuaries and places of education, self-governing (autonomous).
        
  • The 50:50 Rule (two separate co-existing treasuries). Currently it is set up so 45% is Treasury and the other 45% is a treasury that funds hiring lawyers, developers, and more. These are people who are actively working to maintain the system. There is a limit to how much any one person can make, as each member on the back-end has their own salary. What is leftover from that salary is simply used to hire more workers to build and develop more projects. This is important to mention because the back-end 45% doesn't go to any 'one' individual person and there are strict rules with how the money and salaries can be used for those who are guardians of life. The Number one rule is that the money earned by any member who is part of the Guardians of Life must be used for the greater good. Guardians of Life must use that money to reinvest in ways that make their local and international communities a better place. The back-end 45% that isn't used for salaries goes into developing new and better products, making them more quality and to ensure that the people who work are able to live well too. As such 50:50 is split between the front-end (users) and the back-end (creators). But these two groups are intricately interconnected.
Back-End Features: How decisions are made.
  • Experimental Governance model – we're experimenting with a new form of Democracy that takes all the good things about Democracy and seeks to alleviate the challenges of our current system: One that prevents oligarchies, tyranny of the mob, self-entitled rulers, encourages cooperation and has paying it forward to the people built in.
        
  • Hybrid Decentralization – we learned from the DAO disaster, Bitcoin and Ethereum the flaws that come with pure Democracy. It is our goal to create a hybrid decentralized platform. Everything becomes about balance.
        
  • Experimental Hierarchy and Governance structure – more coming soon (see roadmap 2.0 for an idea)
What needs to be determined with more feedback:
  • Which Resource we will be using to back our treasury (example Bitcoin, Dash, Ethereum , etc. to be determined by the community)
  • The Ratio 1:100, 1:500, 1:1000 (to be determined by the community)
  • Blockchain – whether we need to utilize an existing blockchain or build our own (to be determined by the community)
  • Transaction System – how the transactions will best work and be tracked. (will it work like steem.it, synereo Amp, etc. where people vote or give stars to say how the transaction affected their life for better or worse)
  • Kindness as a Reward – obviously if people are being nice to people just so they can get something in return even if indirectly then it's not really kindness; the goal is to make giving fun and rewardable.
        
  • Developers – resources for me to learn how to develop on blockchain or finding a blockchain developer and raising money for the costs
  • Details of our governance model (to be determined upon feedback from the community)


Shortcomings:
There is a big difference between using Blockchain and Bitcoin and actually programming your own coins and I'm still trying to learn this on my own, as I understand there aren't many blockchain developers, and I currently lack the funds to hire blockchain developers who could help us. Depending on volunteers comes with its own challenges, and while blockchain as a service is a possibility we are not yet aware of the costs.:

What I don't know how to do but am trying to learn:
  • Launch an ICO or crowdsale
  • Build a Blockchain, Wallet, and Coin
  • Crowdfunding – raising interest & awareness
  • Should we create our own blockchain platform or find an existing one to build upon (if so which one?)
  • What our main treasury resource should be held or backed in (something that preferably non-volatile such as Litecoin has been a thought)

What I need:
  • Feedback & Advisement from experienced members within the community itself

What I want and am working on:
  • C# to be the language we write our contracts in.
  • Finding a Platform To Write on or Creating our Own (Advisement)
        
  • Reputation & Referral Point System
  • Visual Blockchain
  • And more.
Inspired by:
  • XEM – Reputation System & Harvesting
  • Spells of Genesis, Unsung Heroes & Arcade City, ARGs & Pokemon Go
  • Shapeshift, Jaxx, Exodus – beautiful wallets, currency agnostic, non-custodial
  • Ethereum – and it's smart-contracts
  • Counterparty – for showing what could be possible.
  • Stratis – a blockchain built in C# that may be what we need.
  • Synereo Amp & Steem.it – the concept of communities and decentralized internets and so on.
  • And More
Coming Soon:
  • Whitepaper & Roadmap (new/updated)
  • Wallets
  • Source Code

Upcoming Projects:
  • The Hero Magazine
  • Hero University
  • One Million Heroes (revamped)
  • Crowdfundraiser and ICO campaign

No. It's a pay it forward based economy.

I've linked the summaries here in the infographic:

About the Pattern Architecture of One Million Heroes

About the Pay It Forward Hero Economy


So much high-level blah blahs, anything concrete being implemented? what about the technical details on each of the items you listed in your ad-like announcement?

Hey Valley, all these questions are answered within the text itself. As mentioned our main challenge is we don't have a blockchain developer and I've never programmed on blockchain before, our second challenge is there are questions we've presented here to the community to be answered by people who are interested in being part of this journey with us. I am giving detailed information on what we are working to create and specifically seeking feedback from the community for anyone who would be interested in this project and working with us to help us succeed in making this a reality. 

You can learn more about what has been implemented so far by visiting our Official Site, but for the most part we are coming to the bitcoin community to seek advisement and like-minded individuals who would be interested in what we're doing and want to see us succeed.

This is not for people who want to get rich but is for people who are interested in non-profits and want to make a difference in their community both locally and internationally.


Reserved for further editing. It seems a lot of stuff, I want to read it carefully..

The Roadmap 2.0 is old and listed only to get an idea of where we are going with it. I need to update it. All information about what we're about can be found on the Official Site's main page and FAQs,  as well as reading the two main infographics.

Hi, it seems your roadmap is nt open for public. Would like to know more of the project..

Hey there thank you for notifying me! I've corrected the roadmap and it should now be available to view. Smiley

I apologize if it is not a well written Roadmap, I've written several of these before this one, each time refining it to make it better, clearer and more concise. It has not been updated to reflect recent changes and evolution in concept (as described in the update) though I hope it reflects our intent.  I believe it also lacks technical details that have become more clearer as we have gone on. We will be creating a new one soon both based on feedback for how we can improve it and based on our natural need to update it in general.

Edit:
I have recently updated the Roadmap 2.0 to reflect the infographic. If there are any discrepancies, comments, feedback or concerns please share with us here so we can tackle them one by one.

I am going to bump this up so that people can see it and have a chance to respond. I've been busy working on adding a whitepaper, after I do that I'll be focusing on finding a developer who can help comb out the fineprint details and/or developing the system itself, at some point I will be issuing a fundraiser because alone I can get far but together we can get even further. Reaching out to the community has been a result of largely trying to build everything on my own and without support that has been difficult, now I'm hoping to find a group of people no matter how small who can support this mission with me.

The ultimate goal is to build a platform and network for social entrepreneurs, non-profits, and nonviolent activists both future and present/ People who want to make a positive difference in the world and are tired of putting their lives in the hands of 'dictators'. We want to build a platform that supports and builds independent thinkers, encouraging peace, discouraging violence. A common problem we have is that every day people who are out to make a difference don't receive a lot of attention or support for their work, this system rewards people not only for paying it forward, helping others. It also rewards every day people who may feel like  giving back to others is too 'costly'. In this system a portion of revenue earned from our services and products are always redistributed to members of our community as a reward, grant, scholarship based on their contribution to the community. We're also exploring and experimenting with news ideas like a way to have both privacy and accountability for ones actions, the idea of replacing Miners (for validation) with smart contracts instead, and also the idea of adding human gateways whose only job is to stop and prohibit suspicious activity, for when Smart Contracts glitch or fail, or are abused.

In our system smart contracts aren't meant to be law but are meant to automate the system of validating and lower the high costs and fees that come with mining. But Human Gateways are needed to prevent something like the DAO hacking happening.

My focus has been building and integrating some features of our platform. What we're building is a lot like a wheel with many spokes. I'm currently talking about the economy spoke of that wheel.

At this point and time we're looking for support and guidance from people within the community who are interested and may be willing to help with this project in some way shape or form. Getting feedback on design is a great place to start but also just gauging early interest in who and what types of people would be on board with such a project.  Roll Eyes

If anyone is interested and would like to take part in this journey with us, feel free to give feedback, guidance, etc. etc. etc.  Cool

It's great to have you all on board!

And yes, I know it's a lot to read! I've spent a long time problem solving some solutions and then spent the past year exploring those possible solutions and trying to narrow down precisely what we're trying to say and the different aspects of it. I think that's the was hardest part to get across and has taken the most amount of time to express, that we're a wheel with many different spokes being integrated into one, and then describing how those different spokes will work. We're an Education platform, a Gaming Platform, an Economic platform, a Health & Well-being platform, a News Platform, and a Grant and Showcase platform all integrated into one whole system (like a country or village, different parts make it work and function as "one" whole entity). And so I've been building it up and integrating it one aspect at a time, and at some point realized, time to call out all the Heroes hidden in our world to help.

I've been trying to work on another infographic that shortens everything, but whenever I focus on one thing the other thing I was focusing on gets neglected.

When I'm not designing and developing, I am working on building a board of advisors and putting together a strategy for how I will develop and do outreach at the same time. I am currently looking for:

-Blockchain Developer - someone familiar with economy, development, gamification a bonus, to join the nonprofit advisory board.

-Game/ Level Designer - Another game developer who excels in story writing and level design - to work with us on development on some of our ARGs and other games, but also because we want to gamify the entire platform and more brains are better than one.

We're also looking for a social media strategist, education specialist, programmers, and psychologist passionate about our cause to join the board, to help engineer/design/advise and develop these platforms. Thus far I've been integrating some of these aspects, but I'm a jack of all trades, I can do many things but excel the best at one. I never want to be the only brain on this, more brains are better than one.

One problem I am having with the white paper is that whatever I produce will be a draft, a concept, and whitepapers that I've seen tend to be the final blueprint. As a short-term alternative to the white paper I'll probably end up producing an initial Design Document, like a Game Design Document, they're more flexible and able to evolve and grow, but also great for keeping the team on the same page. The Design Document will focus on technical aspects, features and plans, etc. but will be updated and modified to reflect changes based on community and expert feedback. The whitepaper will be the final result.


I want to have more brains to scrutinize the plan to make sure that we're not out of touch with what people need and actually want and that it is beneficial to our target Heroes & Champions at every level.

My other goals are to continue developing the platform further. Getting the Magazine and our content strategy up, the University completed and up, getting the economy platform up and running (planning and executing the finer details), and gathering a team of heroes and champions, supporters, and it's a lot I KNOW!

Well! I've written more than I planned to write, and It's Thanksgiving here in my part of the world, so I'm going to wish everyone a happy holidays!  And thanks to people for their positive feedback both here and elsewhere, it really helps!

Hey guys I know it's been a while, I've been busy behind the scenes working on everything:

1. Rebuilt the website

2. Rebuilt our One Million Heroes Site where the Architecture behind our Hero Economy is being tested

3. Began working on some Handbooks - sense this isn't just an Economy it's an entire system or Model that all works together - think like Jacque Fresco but Kieran Murghein - this economy will be implemented and tested locally as well as online

4. Focused on recruiting more Heroes to help me so that I can focus on the actual building of the project - still recruiting that help, the person helping me recruit has focused on recruiting locally in their region. I need more people and I need them from all over the world.

5. Began developing a plan for the rules and how it would work (the Whitepaper)

Some things I need from you guys, or anyone willing to assist:
  • Blockchain Advisor
- I need someone familiar with the [Suspicious link removed]munity AND how blockchains work to help guide me on the best way to implement the system and to discuss what is realistic and what she be toned back.
  • Programmer
- I need an extra programmer to join the team.
[/list]

Currently stretched thin so every post I spend socializing is time away from recruiting people to join our team or building and refining things on the back and front-end.

This is a project that will happen and is happening.

I have a whitepaper draft, but I need a blockchain adviser/specialist who believes in the vision of what we're doing to help me refine the technical details and the realism of it. I've been hardpressed to figure out who can help us since most people familiar with blockchain that I've been able to find are big names working on their own projects.

Reaching out to you guys in the community.

Because this page gets bumped down quite frequently I may consider posting this request and discussion somewhere else. TBH social media and forums aren't my specialty so if I can recruit someone to help us with maintaining presence and branch out that would also be great.

Once we get all the blueprints for what we're building out I have pondered running a fundraiser. I feel like some people will relate to this project more because the goal is to define an Independent Government that can overtime support it's participating members by doing for it what governments fail to do, support it's members, emulating the concept of ecovillages and communities like the Amish, and saving methods, merging it with blockchain ideas. I think some people who will be attracted to this will also be people who value the values we are focusing on emphasizing:

-Hard to Censor due to it's decentralization in some way
-Independent of Government
-Backed by real value + equity
-Able to provide social benefits for it's members that helps members build a better life for themselves AND the community (by offering a network of heroes, supportive environments, etc)
-Membership based (like Costco, Amish and Ecovillage communities)
-Takes Democracy to the next level (builds upon what's great about Democracy but works to alleviate the things that cause it to fail)
-Resistant to being shutdown
-Geographically Independent (there are local regions, but similar to localbitcoins and freecyle there are global groups, I'm exploring doing something similar to the way Tinkergarten works by offering kits for members)
-etc./ And so on.

To make this work it has to be affordable to implement, has to have the ability to save and allocate money wisely to participants. The goal is to grow the treasury to create a thriving decentralized economy that attracts, builds and supports non-violent Heroes who affect their worlds both locally and globally.

It utilizes a built-in saving mechanism so that a portion of all funds are always saved, we never give out more money than we have (%) and the contribution and active participation among members determines how we build. Yearly subscriptions, memberships, active trading, and so on.

All of these are details I want to refine with experts on the matter. All of these are things that can be implemented without technology and with technology.


This is not a get rich scheme, but it is a system that I am putting in place that I want to design with the ability to help support members. In the beginning support will be small, but as we grow and allocate more support will grow larger. People who join the network with their own ecovillages and local organizations in their local communities will help it spread and we will in turn help those people.

Same feeling here. All I read are buzz words and a lot of blah blah. I am really looking for what exactly it is, and what are the technical novelties. Talking at this high level with vague sentences do not help.

I think it's more like a pre ann to me the official  announcement will come soon,there was a funding goal for this coin,so we expect an Ico with this coin,the wallet is not yet ready only the usage and the industry where they are more active,I think this will be a good project coming.

OP is missing a lot of things to describe in details this announcement is still very confusing and much hard to understand the point of view what he want from this?

Thank you all for the feedback.

When I originally posted the coin, what I had was a concept, a pattern or architecture and what I was seeking was anyone available to help refine those details. I've been a part of a few ANN's (as a lurker) and saw many develop with just a concept, watched whitepaper's added later and so hoped if I was honest with what I wanted to build and in seeking advisement from the community for those who would want to be part of this with me; that I could receive guidance and refine it.

Aioc you mentioned this as more a Pre-ANN than an ANN, and I realize now that this was part of my mistake. I didn't realize that what I had looked at were Pre-ANNs initially. Thank you for helping me express this, all of that is accurate.

So I have some updates I want to share with you guys, because I've been refining this more and more and gaining more support in helping to realize this:

What is The Hero Economy
The Pay It forward Hero Economy, now just called the Hero Economy, is a type of sharing economy that seeks to distribute and redistribute resources that have been raised and allocated into the company's treasury to reward people who pay it forward in some way for those who choose to participate.

The Hero Economy on its own is no different than any coin. The complexity comes when trying to describe what the Economy is attached to, a system. The total number of coins is always going to be backed by whatever resource we have available. The resources we have available will always be shared and distributed to the community. The way we gain resources to give people will be through:

(1)   Selling products ( books & games) & Services
(2)   Tiered Memberships
(3)   Hero Kits, Self-sufficiency Kits and other types of Kits
(4)   Workshops, Education Resources
(5)   Our One Million Hero Showcase (where people can sponsor their Hero , donate and network, this showcase was inspired by the onemilliondollar homepage, but instead of companies purchasing this space, we depend on people nominating people in their life who have made a difference to sponsor and be added to it)
(6)   And more (such as our local food-energy-water initiative)

All of these products and services are still in development, and this January I'll be meeting with a team of people in one of our local areas  to discuss a system I'll be explaining next by which the Hero Economy will be implemented. I'm pretty excited because this past year I've been so focused on the technological aspects that I didn't realize all of this stuff could be implemented now. 2017 is the year we bring this economy to the real world.

The goal is to team up with Heroes from all over the world who may specialize in one or more areas, to help bring resources to people that help us be more reliant and self-sufficient, less dependent on big companies and corrupt politicians.

More about How It works
Remember when I said Game Developers by day, Heroes by night? Well Game development has just been the goal to gamify and reward giving. The economy is designed to have a built in mechanism that helps people associate giving as a form of self-investment. There is a built in mechanism in place that will help destroy poverty mindset and traps, encourage saving finances, giving finances, and showing how when we both take care of ourselves, and give extra, and to show that we're benefited indirectly and directly when we contribute actions that strengthen the system.

The shortest possible description For what it is:
People who contribute resources (time, energy, finances) to the system can get paid back with Hero Points & Karma which can be spent within the system or redeemed for cash or used to nominate others who have taken initiatives in their community

Technology as a Bridge
Before there were computers and things like blockchain, there were physical books containing ledgers. The system I am designing and working on building is planned to be launched with or without blockchain/databases. I believe with blockchain the system we're building will be stronger, more decentralized, and resistant to censorship and control. In essence what we're developing can continue to exist and spread so that we're not just restricted to 'local' regions as I am right now. What I mean is that databases and blockchain can make our job easier to manage, by reducing the work load, but this is something I want to start: Now, I am not going to be waiting for the technological aspects to be developed first, I'll be implementing the system in real time and developing the technology in tandem to support those goals, with technology being used as a 'tool' to make life easier, more efficient, and so on.


What's the real goal here:
Harvesting & Making accessible: Food – Energy – Water
Helping people Access:  Shelter – Medical

Locally Zenratstudios is working to team up with people from all over the world, to:

Food – helping as many people as possible grow their own food, in smart, efficient, low-maintenance ways. Using technology like Farmbot to reduce labor, designing self-watering gardens, and recycling water and the like. We also want to support our community gardens and link forces with them using a service like unsung to help get food to: Low income, middle income, and no income people.

You don't have to be a member to receive help, but those who are members receive benefits for taking part in strengthening our world together.

Water – droughts are a real thing. Where I live there hasn't been any winter as is usual, water has been scarce and no frost or dew in the morning. But we have high humidity. The goal is to Harvest water from the air and purify it using or utilizing low-cost materials and services. The Lifestraw is an example. We can Harvest water from the air in various ways, Atmospheric Water Generators do this. The problem is they use up a lot of energy and cost 1k or more. Our goal is to help people create their own water reserves cheaply and affordably, for less than the cost of a PS4 or XBOX 360.  I am working on getting together people to help design and build this system and then will work to help teach people to make them themselves using available resources in their environment, or help to make them for people.

Energy -  solar energy gets better and cheaper each and every year. Installation is what takes the most work. any systems we build today will be obsolete tomorrow. The best way to get into this is to start slow and gradually build up. Solar Energy is not the cheapest renewable energy, we have geothermal energy, and wind and water energy, water being the cheapest. A self-sustainable system might be able to utilize and upcycle water used in plants and vegetation ready to be picked, water extracted from the air, and drinking and use the excess water for generating energy. Cheap and renewable and PORTABLE energy is essential, I'm working on designing and building these plans -- would anyone like to add their brain power to mine. I'm not incredibly intelligent, just visionary based. And I really believe we can gradually offset the rising cost of energy and any financial collapse by moving to self-sustainable resources independent of what political force is in power. Community action is required.

More – I'm working with a group of heroes locally and internationally. Any input you offer will also help to refine and implement a system that is both effective, works and helps us to get enough people.

My goal is to create a network, a coalition of heroes who support each other and can by changing their own lives, help change the lives of others and in doing so save the world.

All of this is to help us be less reliant on politicans, corporations and governments, and more self-reliant. To reduce the cost of our living expenses if not down to nothing, so that we can afford the things that really matter in our life.

The Goal of the Hero Economy
Is to support our vision of a free world where everyone independent of their location is given the means and opportunity to survive. This is an outreach effort, the economy is meant to be independent of the government, and something available to anyone able to participate.

Think of it like Costco, WWOOF but bigger. Think of it like decentralized ecohomes connected together by ecovillages around the world that serve as refuges for individuals.


Conclusion
I know that I am not the best at explaining or communicating this, and I am failing to do so now. This is no hype. You're not being asked for your money, but I am asking for your help (your time and advisement on the technological aspects) so that we can create a system that removes our dependency from a system that doesn't have our best interest in a way that helps us connect to the masses directly at the heart of what we all really need.


I will edit this subject to say "Pre-Ann"
