This is a smarphone app where you can list the kinds of
plants you are growing.
And you can see all the kinds of food growing in gardens
around your neighbourhood.
Every set period (say a week) you recieve free credits,
which allows you to 'pay' for these home grown foods.
If you have
your own garden, you can announce in the
a specific time and date where you will be giving away
food for credits.
Each credit point system has a 'lifetime'. After it
it is deleted and added to the 'Karma tally' of the seller.
Karma points are also gained from transaction (and
tracked separately as well). These allow for some healthy
competition for imaginary karma points (hopefully linked
to reddit as well).
The idea of the credit system is to implement some form
of /r/basicincome system. Since without a credit
you run the risk of bad actors just rocking up and taking
the fruits/vegs being given away, and leaving none to
others. Also the automatic conversion of credits to
points prevents the massing of economic power to any
central individual or organization (While recognizing
performers by providing them with social recognition.
Which is partially why people want more money as well...
Another reason for using credit system, is to allow for
flexibility in bartering. E.g. You grow lots of apples, but
need a set amount of other food.
Why apps to implement such system? Well it provides
possibility of process automation, take for instance you
can automatically schedule a 'wishlist' of food. This
means they may not even need to trade credits, instead
they can rock up with the 'food' in your wishlist and do a
direct swap. (And gain karma immediately, instead of
waiting for the credits to expire)
TL;DR: Easier sharing of grown food by smartphone app,
and distribution regulated by automated credit system
modelled after basic income. (Heck maybe this can be a
platform for testing different basic income algorithms)
