PODnotes in our local to global crowdfunding: These, like all currency, are tokens issued in exchange for valuable consideration and the holder is granted privileges by those who honour the currency - and the core of support of the value of these PODnotes are the global community of PODpreneurs, who are members of PODnet. Our crowdfunding concept is to reward the subscribers to PODnotes with discount on POD Fresh Food purchase to the face value of the PODnote, plus other "non-perishable" rewards, including discount on lifePOD purchase and/or training & support from PODworks networks.
In the concept of currency that I am envisioning we grant a long term recognition and finical benefit to these early subscribers who have taken the greatest risk by providing the first wave of financial support to the PODpioneers, and in recognition they hold unique PODnotes to certify this courageous act of faith. These subscribers do not surrender the PODnotes that they hold to gain the immediate and the potential legacy rewards that attach to these unique PODnotes. Their valuation will be substantially greater than the "face-value" - which is to be expected because the rewards are greater than the stated face-value - only the market place will determine the market value of any series of PODnotes after they have been issued to subscribers, and even after rewards have been redeemed the market value may hold or increase, because these series have a special importance in birthing PODnet.
A crowdfunding that launches a community currency that has a total commitment to ending hunger is an opportunity to experiment with a "values based" type of crypto-currency.The crypto-code would identify our PODnotes and serve to provide the opportunity for people everywhere and in our launch locations to invest in our developer/user community because of our specific "values-based" mission and receive rewards of abundant POD Fresh Food as a foundation for building resilient, prosperous communities that transition to independence from fossil fuel and petrochemical based industrial food products.
