How to create money. What is #SOLenRED

#SOLenRED is a free web platform that serves as a tool to completely manage a SOL community so each community is independent of the others in its administration. In this section we explain how to create money, local money, our new money.

#SOLenRED allows to access to a community by filling a simple form. The spirit of #SOLenRED is to be a facilitating tool.

Getting Started.

To start, you need a group of people that run the new SOL in your community. If these people have the necessary illusion, it won’t cost much to meet 10 people.

To fill the form of a new community in #SOLenRED, you should write a document with the first people in your local system, the name of the currency and the information you agree to start. This document is the statutes of creation.

Additionally you should write another document with the rules of the community. This document is a living document that can be modified over time keeping the last version available to all members in the platform #SOLenRED for anyone to download it.

In this regulation, there could be aspects such as the rights and obligations of members, sanctions against possible unwanted behavior by the community, the way for registering new members and anything you can think of. You can download a template to create the rules and statutes in #SOLenRED.

The founder person of a community will be the one that has to register initial members of the community he is creating. He or she will have to configure the characteristics of the community like the name of the currency or wealth and debt limits that have been previously agreed.

Once configured the community, the user must press the button to found the community.

How to manage a community #SOLenRED

In #SOLenRED, every member will have access to all information of the community, records, asemblies, what others offer and demand, the exchanges, etc.. Without exception all the information will be available to every member of the community.

The web platform was created as a way to organize the community and the community must adapt. If you want to form your system otherwise unfortunately you can not use #SOLenRED. Anyway we know our system is not perfect and never will be so we are open to suggestions and proposals.

You have to keep in mind that the team that has created this platform has not earned for this work and we have carried out this project with the illusion of working to increase the collective freedom. We will not charge for the use of the platform. It was a question of empowerment.

Now, let's explain what must be the organization of a community that uses #SOLenRED.

In #SOLenRED, we believe that communities should be democratic. We also believe that people will be willing to collaborate more in the organization and there will be others that can only trade. Everyone should have access to all information in a transparent way. The platform is designed to make it so.

We've set the responsibilities of the members involved in three types of profiles responsibility so that each member can only have one profile maximum. The three profiles are the legislator, the executor and the penaltizing. Before explaining each of the profiles, we will explain how must be the government of a community

The government is the assembly.

Every member may call a meeting. Each one of these calls will not be a firm call until a certain number of members show their support for that call. The amount of supporters required should be reflected in the regulations of each community. You should set that data into the assemblies section and it can be changed at any time. The assembly has to decide the number of supporters you need for a call to move from state "called" to "firmly called".

At the time that an assembly is in state "firm", each member can indicate if they are attending to the meeting so the whole community knows.

Until the conclusion of the meeting, any member can tell if they are attending but once the meeting finishes, the assembly will go to the state of "collecting records".

The records of the meeting are critical in #SOLenRED system.

All members can download any record of any meeting.

The legislator profile

Members who have the responsibility of legislator will not be those who legislate, as we have said, the government of the community is the assembly. There may be many members of this responsibility and it is the assembly who decides who is in this group.

#SOLenRED will give special permission for these members and these permissions are that when an assembly is in a state of "getting records", they have to upload the record in a pdf document to make it accessible to all. Similarly, if there is no legislative record, they may indicate that there is not legislative record.

Legislator members can upload an updated version of a document containing corrections. This new version will invalidate the previous version but all versions are available for anyone to read.

The content of a legislative document can contain the following information relevant to the web platform #SOLenRED:

  • Changes to the rules of the community. Remember that the legislation is the document that must be uploaded when a community register in #SOLenRED and can be changed at any time.
  • The change in the amount of supporters that an assembly required to move from state "called" to state "firm". We have already explained it.
  • The call of a referendum and the details of the question, the possible answers and the date of start and end of voting.
  • The registration of new members.
  • The assignment or termination of permissions legislator, executor or sanctioning of any member.
  • The creation of a new group. The groups function will be explained later.

The profile of the penalizing

Members who have the responsibility of penalize members will not be those who punish and will not be those who make the decision either because as we said, the government is the assembly. There may be as many members of this responsibility as the assembly decides.

#SOLenRED will give special permission for these members and these permissions are that when an assembly is in a state of "getting records", they have to upload the record in a pdf document to make it accessible to all. Similarly, if there is no sanctioning record, they may indicate that there is not sanctioning record.

Penalizing members can upload an updated version of a document containing corrections. This new version will invalidate the previous version but all versions are available for anyone to read.

In #SOLenRED there must be at least a penalizing record or a legislative one in each assembly. At the time in which a legislator member upload a record or indicate that no disciplinary record and a penalizing member upload a record or say that there is no record, the assembly will change its state from "collecting records" to state "finished".

The content of a document may contain only punitive sanctions on members of the community. The sanctions are all temporary.

A member who has been temporarily disabled can access #SOLenRED and see all the details. The disqualification is that the demand and supply of the disabled member will not appear in the list during the period of his or her disqualification. In addition, a disabled member can not perform any exchange and all the exchanges that he or she had opened will be automatically canceled. Finally, if a penalized member is a member of any group, he or she will automatically lost that status but he or she can regain it once the punish finishes.

The Executor profile

Members executors are the ones that have more permits in #SOLenRED. They will have to apply everything that the penalizing and legislative records say.

All the actions of these members in the system must be related to the record that indicates that action. For example, if an executor penalizes a community member, he or she must specify the record that says so. If he or she does not indicate the record, the punish can not be done because the system will not let.

If an executor member performs an action and it is not in the record he or she says or indicates another record, the system will let him or her to do it but the transparency of #SOLenRED allows that any member to realize at any time and treat it in the next assembly to correct the error.

The actions that a executor member can perform (all of them indicating the record that the says so) are:

  • Modify the details of the community
  • Call a referendum
  • Register new members
  • Give responsibilities as a legislator, executor or penalizing (or others that will be explained in the group section below) to any member who is not himself. He or she alse remove responsibilities
  • Punish a member other than himself
  • Create, modify, or delete groups

How do groups work

In # SOLenRED there is a section that is the groups. There are predefined 3 groups that are the penalizing, legislator and executor. These groups can not be modified or deleted.

Additionally we have left the possibility that each community can create other groups and indicate their roles and/or responsibilities.

Examples of groups are animation group of meetings, weekly market organization or what you need or decide in each community.

Also you can assign members in groups created by each community in the members section.

As you can see the self-management of the community is complete. We just we offer a tool but the organization is up to each community.
