MINDFASHION.today
About:
"With MINDFASHION.today Janne Baetsen presents a unique ‘Human Innovation’ approach to fashion design, cultural economics, psychology, technology and branding, to contribute to a more profound insight into relationships, identities and communities in today’s world of fashion. How? By (re)establishing the connection between the clothes, the creator and the wearer, and questioning what we (need to) value, what we wear as well as how we dispose of it. Focussing not only on clothing but also on the complexity of human behaviour, innovation, experience and communication across all aspects of fashion, to generate deep understanding of the current and future (creative) economy.

The aim is to reveal the significance of fashion as a way of communicating, and identify existing issues in the fashion world that can be explained using a holistic view of disciplines, to predict, express, address and ultimately change behaviour for the better."

London-based.

HIGHER STUDIO | London fashion rental
About:
"We are a progressive, sustainable fashion concept based in East London. Offering a curated library of new and archive stock, we provide a rotating wardrobe free from a consumer hangover. We believe that needing to buy in order to wear, forces consumers as well as creatives to compromise experimentation and quality for commerce. When free from the commitment, burden and cost of ownership, people can wear and be what they want.

higher.studio’s mission is to offer uncompromising innovative design and to allow creators to profit from greater emotional and physical durability. Crucially, we believe in a new system driven by the longevity of resources rather than quantity sold. We work with brands and partners to implement this change.

Liberapay
About:
"Liberapay is a way to donate money recurrently to people whose work you appreciate.

Payments come with no strings attached. You don't know exactly who is giving to you, and donations are capped at €100.00 per week per donor to dampen undue influence.

Donations are public. By default, the total amount you give and the total amount you receive are public (you can opt out of sharing this info).

Liberapay does not take a cut of payments, the service is funded by the donations to its own account. So, recipients get the full value of the donations, but there are payment processing fees when moving money in or out of Liberapay."

Commonly used to fund open-source free software projects.

Ethereum for Everyone (Ethereum Public Blockchain; ETH not ETC)
Self-introductory post of Ethereum's blockchain-based platform and its ecosystems.

Excerpts:
"Ethereum’s public blockchain has been specifically designed to be a decentralized application platform. This means that Ethereum can run apps that are similar to apps you might find on a computer or smartphone, but in a way that shares the blockchains unique ledger-like features. This means apps that can be decentralized, potentially owned by no company and no country, and yet globally accessible, secure, transparent, as well as many more incredible characteristics.
[...]
This is the building of a new economy, a "world computer", allowing a myriad of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO).
[...]
It should not be frightening to people or governments, but in a way that should be thought of as innovative, streamlined, better, with exciting opportunities for business growth and information security, including a country’s most precious information. This is a technology that reflects a rising tide that lifts all boats.
[...]
It seems clear now that Ethereum is becoming a technological standard for a combined industry that will soon be worth trillions.
[...]
Examples of ecosystems growing out of Ethereum public blockchain:
- Mega uber supercomputing
- Fight counterfeiting
- Self-organizing company
- Network and secure intellectual property (uncencorable)
- Superior prediction
- Super auditing (records cannot be altered)
- Digitized perks and asset value (compatible with IoT and tokenize markets such as fiat currencies, premium memberships or gold)
- Fair bets (e.g. contract-based casino)
- Better loans and credit (P2P without middleman, global scope)
- Video game economy
- Banks and charity (e.g. United Nations funds for aid)
- Mobile text/payment/browsing (open global financing system)
- Asset management and investing (The complex economy emerging around Ethereum's ERC tokens may make it difficult to decide with which to invest, hold, secure, etc. Expert digital asset management are emerging to assist, creating services such as “index” funds to help)
- Empowering creators (ownership and control by the content creators, while at the same time novel, cost effective, ways for content creators to reach agreements with producers, directors, actors, crew and be able to define royalty and rights management in a way that is transparent and fair)
- Open world knowledge base (e.g. Wikipedia more accurate, uncensored, decentralized, and more detailed, by rewarding strong contributions and peer review.)
- Matchmaking (e.g. global job market or dating)
- Ad tokens (e.g. Brave web browser basic attention token)
- Internet of Things (share anything and be compensated)
[...]
Most other blockchains, such as Bitcoin (despite RSK Rootstock add-on), Dash, Monero, Litecoin, Ripple, are not Smart contract platforms, and therefore, are not competitors for such a market."
