I don't agree, thou there is obviously the need for such a thing, the simple fact is that in order for them to do what they did, they had to rely on Fiat and consequences and losses associated with it. With new simple, technologies created for our community we can effectively do away with the need to rely on Fiat in any form. It does not have to start as as international thing but it will grow to that level.
What i've meant by big contract is > 10.000 btc, for this to happened we have no choice to deal(taxes, shipping, warehouses renting/owning, office renting/owning,staffing) with fiat as temp intermediary, we need to take paypal as example, at first they starting to handle small transaction, imho up until now they still cann't replace for paying the irs, other daily's goods.
As we cann't fully pay the deal's 'elements' that i've mentioned above with fiat, and if we idealist to stand up fully on btc we surely now stuck with 'one man' domestic business type, to be able to more survive we should at-least shares common trade secret that one's wanted to share in the consortium.
No, I'm not interested in dealing with a consortium that will inevidably create it's own agendas that will not be good for the community in part or as a whole.
Consortium by this context is providing open source document or other type that explain in more detailed how get started, how to efficiently shipping, how to make less fiat transaction, small tips/tricks/critiques on how store such items from the contributed successful individuals. Consortium is not one of the first fancy fascist organization in bitcoin community like skullbone, bilderberg, i've just use that term to explain a open group without any special obligation or power but just a collective effort to stimulate the bitcoin business by providing this 'free' document as a start-up base helper framework. If we imagine bitcoin as a country but free entity, we don't have choices to stimulating various individual to participate in bitcoin's market with various ways.
My business idea may be to help the community as a while but it is also a business. I'm looking at this more in terms of (if your a treckie) Pickard running the enterprise. What is required is base set of unbreachable, ethical guide lines for conduct like the constitution of a TRUE republic of sorts. But I'm doing this with or without the assistance of others ... in other words .. I'm the captain/commander of my organization .. hence I guild the direction, but not necessarily the implementation ... however, I'm still fair and FAR from perfect ... so keeping to the foundations and a STRONG sense of community and suggestion thereof is imperative.
Sure absolute openness to business is a deadlock, but at-least it doesn't mean we cann't contribute something back to community with some free & safe to share know hows into the consortium(join collective effort or any term that you choose), let's says it's just a free stimulus incentive to more liquify bitcoin's economic.
