All branches of my family and friends have been questioning techforgood over 70 years now- by which we mean what dad with Economist audiences of 1970s first coined as entrepreneurial revolution: every next child flourishing because every community being invested in through servant leaders and SME innovators- if that's your kind of collaboration please get in touch chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk MA Stats DAMTP Corpus Christi Cambridge -- currently in Wash DC & Glasgow; as Scots missionaries my parents who served in world war 2 hoped that was the end of tech for the few instead of tech and teach for all.. we're also prepping June 2023 Glasgow as 265th moral sentiments summit on purposes of markets and engineering. WE see 2020s web3 alumni as best chance to cure tragedies of fake media, AND celebrate millennials as first Sustainability Gen -huge thanks to ed3dao.com , SDGmetaverseprize.org, NFTSdgs.com and other benchmarks at worldclassdaos.com - and of course mathematicians like Satoshi since 2008WHY 163? London Scot James Wilson having founded The Economist in 1843, convinced Queen Victoria to launch commonwealth round a bank by and for the quarter of peoples on the India subcontinent. 163 year ago: she told him to go create Charter Bank; arriving in Calcutta 1860 Wilson died within 9 months of diarrhea. Local peoples had to wait another 112+ years until a womens bank was launched by Fazle Abed making end of diarrhea by oral rehydration one of its first educational purposes My father Norman was very lucky. He survived world war 2 as a teenage navigator allied bomber command Burma. Six years later he met V Neuman at Princeton who unluckily only had 6 years left due to cancer from nuclear bombsd. Neuman asked dad will train economist jouranlits to ask the most valuable question in the world: what goods will people do with 100 tukes more etch every decade 1930s to 2020s. Dad and numann had plenty of exambples of bads caused by rapid tech. I was born the same year 1951. To be honest it took me really long time to start to understand dad's next question about what he called peoples entrepreneurial revolution. But he made it clear that community griunded finacing and valuation of tecahers would be make or braeak to 21st c life. So lets start there

Little about crypto currencies

in banking world,  Perhaps nothing man made is changing as much as crypto currencies - so i expect this aug 2022 little to know will need to look very different in a few months  (arguably when media chnages finance is first to change - what did finance do to you - web3 web2 web1 tv before web; before tv) before electricity ... 

I suggest novices on currencies (including me -footnote i studied maths and dont like spending time on zero sum games but now i realise i should have a bit more) start at asking themselves what is bitcoin and what is one other currency - currently I find it fun to ask what is ethereum

IF you are young, might want to live anywhere in the world or feel youyr country needs rebuilding (i studied how girls took on this challenge in bangaldesh when the nation was new) you might want to have some savings balanced by what your own nations currency does. Historically thats not been possible or legal. But today if you place permits cryto wallets then you can do that. 

TO get started yiu will need a cryptowallet . You have to go through a specific coding sequence. Google will quickly send you to what to do - meta mask is a typical wallet app for your mobile . Please note tgere is a lot more on crypto which I havent triedf to intro at eg https://www.khanacademy.org/economics-finance-domain/core-finance/money-and-banking/bitcoin/v/bitcoin-what-is-it

Probably the best first crypto currency to have a little saving in is bitcoin. It was the first. It is filled a gap in global money markets that it is hard to see being closed down. Its not being used to try out most of the exctraodinary community building eperiments. This actiually means its tech is simpler to provide (or should be the most secure).

If blockchain is the most conservative cryptocurreny, which can you have most fun with - in 2022 probably ethereum. Please note once you have eg bitcoin savings you can easily chnage into the other cryptos. 

There is a catch 22. which you can see - how prices have varied over last month 12 montehs longers

Bitcoin  https://www.google.com/finance/quote/BTC-USD

Ethereum https://www.google.com/finance/quote/ETH-USD

As far as i can see of all cryptos bitocin will rise stadily but from now on not spectacularly whwreas one of the currecies to play with may leap far higer. But currently all krytos vary a lot - bo9th bitcoin and ethereruem have varied 3 fold in the last 12 months. So if your reason for being in cryoto is long term also make sure you take advice as towhen to begin.


As at August 2022 if you want to do somthing with NFTs (even launch your own) you probablky dont need to know an awful lot about how the people who run ethereum itself do their job. What you need to excplore is all the NFTs that you can alreadt become a member of with etheruem minting as well as how people craete a new nft


What I want to do by second week of spetember is to discuss some dao cases I like eg www.ed3dao.com - i'd really like to hear from people who say my favorite is .. 

I hope to learn a lot more in new york 13 spet to 17 sept - perhaps we can zoom in or meet www.economistdiary.com - i am trying to understand how all this impacts millennails (under 30s and their teachers) as the first generation who mo=ust see the sustainability development goal achieved out of every communituy

This is a huge exploration - so yeah tell me what i have got wrong chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk or better links or if there is a big question you want to share with explotrers what is it


Below i wantt to add in some topics that I think need to be explored at the same time as crypt cyrrency

How are you all going to design or use web3 or the metaverse. Fu=ortunately hear the united nations and the world's largest proze host xprize have teamed up - 22-23 sees the first yera round competition www.sdgmetaverseprize.org - 2-6 people regsiterd by decemeber- chose 1 of 17 sustainability goals that matters most to you and yours- whats a viral story you can share on why ythisd matters (the last part of the sompetition is how to web 3 youyr story- but dont worry if you have a stury that billiinsd want - do it in whatever version scales an audience and web 3 mnetors can heklp you; whasts mots important is by may 2023 there are 17 networks each coop0erating around the sdg stiry that moves their world


The other Un topic is the number 1 chnage gutrerres is leading Un around 2017-2026 - he wants a dugital un2.0; there are 9 playing piesces

4 are tech; 4 are faith/consience based ie rights, inclusion public goods, trust/safety

the 34 tech piesces

digotal cooperation - this is everything educatirs can blend digoitally

ai for good- this is the question my father journalised since 1951 insoired by v neumann - ask what pepoples will do with 100 times more tech - so vereything aboove fits ai for good

there is digital capaity building which really means how will elder people have to unlearn at elast as fast as young people work

and there is global connectiviyty- there is a tech part of the un taht was founded in szuterland 1865 - the first global connectivuity chalenge was how woul organsitions get together "worldwide" to supply telegraps - soon alosmt any public goog beginning with tele or rad ...

You can see how the Un updates its playing pieces at

https://www.un.org/techenvoy/ if you are not starting yiyr sustainability year in ny - there's a un zoom out of mongolia spet 5, 6 - all joyful expoersr welcome via the envoy office

There is a 9th piece CODES about adasptation of green from ground up

Because the Un is sort of woed by nations as well as peoples its not alowed to brainstorm crypto until you show how tos cale sdgs with crypto - at ;least thats the gos i have heard so far - if I am wrong show me which parts of the UN are launching NFTS! or celebrating crypo1

thaT NEED I THINK TO BE STUDIED AT SMAE TIME ARS CRYPTONITSEL
