Read the book Digital Gold. All sorts of skullduggery already in its short history. Think FED Reserve with additional layer of secrecy....

Anyone remember PermaCredits?

I liked the idea of people who could get some kind of equity / dividends by investing in whatever permaculture project they wanted. The idea would jump start a lot of projects, and successful investing would cause a lot a lot of reinvesting in the next chosen project to invest in (which is what KIVA claims)

It doesn't have to be permaculture, either. FoundUps is based on the same principle, but for any 'Startup'.
Last I heard, they even chose the Ethereum platform as the way to do this. I believe there was a delay after Ehtereum forked.

Edit: Sorry, Mike, I missed your post. You -do- remember.
