$MOTION: A Crypto-currency for the Global Dance-tech Community

MotionDAO

From Digital Social Network to a Crypto-cooperative System

“You can think...tokens are to the Web 3.0 what websites were in the early days of the World Wide Web. If You think of the history of the internet, the Web 1.0 in the 90s revolutionized information, which is why we called it the information data highway. The Web 2.0 revolutionized interactions: it provides internet platforms that were bidirectional, but they are centrally owned. And the Web 3.0 revolutionizes value exchange. And the core of the Web 3.0 is blockchain networks, and the killer application is the token”.

Shermin Voshmgir in the smartphone  documentary Trust in the Blockchain Society

 

Art is, after all, practical philosophy n as media art pioneer Shu Lea Cheang has noted: “Money, Value, monetary exchange...these concepts have  been excluded from the field of new media, as if the internet and net art were emancipated from these issues, living not on love and fresh water but o silicon an bits, living in an utopia of collective intelligence detached from economic constraints. Accordingly...interventions into established currency systems by citizens, artists and cultural workers could provide a source for new thinking and potentially create an ecology of value and values in which art and artists would play a central role.”             

Ruth Catlow in Artists Re:thinking the Blockchain

 

We need to build an economy and an Internet that works for all. How can we take lessons from the long and exciting history of cooperatives and bring them into the digital age?

John Duda at “Platform Cooperativism: The Internet, Ownership, Democracy”

GUIDING RESEARCH QUESTIONS:

MOTION_DAO, is a logical continuation in my research on digital social networks and communities of practices; MOTION_DAO as an exploration on the impact of crypto economic framework and blockchain technology on ownership and value creation within artists.

These are leading questions from the more divergent, expansive and speculative to the more specific:

Can money be beautiful?

Can money be programmed?

Can money have programmed ethics?

How can we use crypto-economic frameworks to question and inquire about the fundamental architecture, dynamics and ethics of contemporary economic systems?

Can we explore the innovation potential of blockchain technology  to develop a sustainable economy within the international digital  arts community?

What if members of a global digital  social network have their own cryptocurrency?

What if they can express value and appreciation of their contributions and participation with a crypto-token that reflects their ethos?

Can we move from a model of centralized ownership to cooperative ownership and decentralized governance (crypto-cooperative) ? 

MotionDAO, is a social innovation/art research project that combines Platform Cooperativism,  a crypto-economic  framework and digital social network design for knowledge co-creation in  the times of WEB 3 innovation.

MotionDAO, proposes several tactics:  the minting of  $MOTION, a cryptocurrency  for dance-tech.net and movimiento.org members (not exclusive) allowing them to express and exchange value,  the creation of a DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) and experiments with BUI Basic Universal IncomeDeFi Descentralized Finance and NFTs Non-fungible Tokens.

The development of this vision  and  innovation in this new socio-technical landscape will be leveraged by on-boarding sessions, blockchain education and think-tanks in platform cooperativsm and crypto-economics.

First open educational event on June is supported by Artists Commons (Belgium).

The following video inspired the questions: If cryptocurrencies are "programmable money", can money be ethical?

Can ethics be programmed on currencies?

Based on fundamentals aspects of crypto-economic design,  these are the envisioned project nodes for our community value flows:

 

Digital community of Practice:

Continuous development and maintenance of the digital social networks platforms www.dance-tech.net, movimiento.org  and dance-tech.tv as the fundamental  collaborative spaces  and architecture of the ecosystem of knowledge co-creation  and exchange.

 

$MOTION

A Digital Currency (ERC20 token)

SMOTION is a cryptocurrency for dancers, dance lovers, performers, artists, creators, innovators, technologists, movers and shakers of embodied arts/somatics  and other time-based artistic expressions.  It embodies, a collaborative and democratic ethos,  the value of movement arts, the primacy of movement and the vital contribution of arts to culture development and knowledge production,

It is envisioned to become an important social currency  supporting exchanges of value between dance-tech.net and movimiento.org members, nodes and hubs of the international contemporary experimental, performance dance and digital arts such as festivals, art schools, art and research centers,and the like.

$MOTION is an ERC-20 token running on the Ethereum network.

$MOTION main distribution and communication architectures  are the digital social networks dance-tech.net and movimiento,org

Token Distribution Strategy:

In order to receive MOTION,  you need to be a member of any of these digital communities or participate in MOTION educational activities.

In that sense. the MOTION token is aimed to become a social currency of the online communities; yet as a is a fully exchangeable crypto token, it can be owned  and traded outside the dance-tech and movimiento.org ecosystem, possibly creating network effects impacting its emergent value.
