Solidarity Primitives: The Bread Crowdstaking Application

One of the major problems with our economy today is that the needs of working people are subordinated to the pursuit of profit. Within blockchain-based governance mechanisms, standard token voting practices rely on the neoliberal notion of “voting with your dollar.” Like the capitalist market, this means wealthy investors can simply purchase large amounts of tokens on the market in order to hoard voting power. This system allows these capitalist robber barons, or “whales” to greatly influence the outcome of proposals submitted on “decentralized” applications. In other words, financial power becomes directly correlated with political power.

Collaboration at Scale: Blockchain and Mutual Aid

There is no denying that web3 has been heavily influenced by capitalist logic (ie, profit maximization, rent-seeking, etc.). Because of this, there’s an overwhelming bias that blockchains are a hyper-individualistic technical media dependent on financial speculation - but this is not what blockchains really are. They can more accurately be seen as permissionless networks of computers and users that collaborate with one another around a distributed database of economic information by reaching consensus. In this light, blockchains are more like platforms for economic cooperation of which many types of partnerships are possible.
