• Our Mission

    Life is Sacred! Our mission is dedicated to replanting the Tree of Life and Mending the Sacred Hoop. We will usher in the new Living Economic System where wealth is generated by caring for our planet & caring for one another. This will allow us to heal our planet and to revitalize our global economy.

    Our Dedication

    The Earth Dollar is being issued to restore our beloved Mother Earth and to revitalize our global economies. With the Earth Dollar, we envision caring for one another and caring for the planet will be the main economy of the world. The Earth Dollar is dedicated to bringing back the Sacredness of Life; it reconnects us back to Mother Earth and to each other.

     

    The Earth Dollar will usher in a new enlightened decentralized “Living Economic System” centered on the preservation of life. No longer will money be an excuse any longer to end extreme poverty, to mitigate climate change, to protect our planet and for peace on Earth.

     

    People will now have an alternative choice between choosing to stay with the Trickle Down Economic System (aka 9 to 5 system) created during the Industrial Revolution 200 years ago. The Trickle Down Economic System that benefits only 1% of the world population is based on death, destruction, alienation, hyper-competition, enslavement, and war or they can choose our “Living Economic System”, which is centered on life.

     

    We do not in any way impose our values on anyone. We just offer people an alternative choice.

     

    “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” - R. Buckminster Fuller

    The "kaianerehkowa" is the longest surviving democracy. It is how we can settle our differences, come to one mind as a government. The three branches of government, legislative, judiicial, executive, as we say wolf , bear, turtle...can only be in one clan-mothers' clan/matrilineal society, different speakers every day unless allowed for two.Wishes of his clan together so could take a long time, everyone has veto power but rarely used because we are onkwehonwe/ real people. The natural world is the longhouse, the sky is the roof of her, water flows through her veins, her presents, we survive on...let's work together to beautify her..no more tears please..

    Sequester carbon - eliminate carbon emissions whilst turning it into a valuable resource Eradicate mosquitos simply by growing the right trees - malaria is soon to be a thing of the past.

    Stephen’s Reason’s

    [dek] Founder Stephen Cutter explains the inspiration and mission that lead him to found and further the world’s first mindful ride-share.

    How do you sum up a passion that has overtaken your life? Sometimes a simple spark can take you to places you never dreamed possible. Inspiration can strike you at any time and then demand your attention: That is what happened with the concept for Wuji, a ride-share that changes urban transportation from a necessary evil to a regenerative component of our shifting future. This is why Wuji is only utilizing eco-friendly cars and offsets its CO2 footprint via treesisters.org and carbonfund.org. Wuji has also partnered with the Earthdollar.org to bring about a new cryptocurrency that is attached to the health of Mother Earth. I believe in a grassroots economy--where benefits happen from the bottom up rather than the top down--is the future, and Wuji is designed to fit into this future paradigm.

     

    My Vision for Wuji

    Wuji aims to be a contributor to every community where we offer services.Yes, we are a business that must pay for ourselves and our operations, but we have a greater mission: To make a difference in the world. Our grassroots organizational and financial model means, we take care of the planet and the people first. It also means we’ll give back to every community where we operate, letting riders donate by rounding up or adding $1 to give someone in need in the community a ride. It means transporting veterans to doctors’ appointments, elementary school students to community gardens and senior citizens to social engagements--all for free. We also plan to offset all of our emissions and help replant rainforests across the globe. But in the end, I believe the ripple effect of Wuji being part of something bigger than ourselves will make a bigger difference than the actual environmental rewards.


    My goal with Wuji is to model a new way for business to function. Moving into the future, businesses must move beyond sustainability: For true success, we must all aim to become regenerative models that give back to future generations, rather than robbing from them. Today more than ever, people want to align their values with their spending habits and Wuji is an easy way to vote with your dollar and be the change you want to see in the world.


    We feel Wuji can scale to a global level in less than five years and that our mission-based model will compel communities to welcome us with open arms. Wuji also plans on having off-grid live/work headquarters in every market we enter, where we can create community and facilitate learning. Living a sustainable lifestyle while also being part of a community that’s making the world a better place is what this generation is asking for, and Wuji aims to become a part of the movement for a better future.


    Wuji is looking to be the preferred Eco-Conscious rideshare company for businesses that are looking to make an impact and be the change they want to see in the world. We are also looking for partnerships and sponsorships to help cross promote each other's brands and mission. Wuji is running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo and you can find out more info at www.ridewuji.com and to contribute to a Earth Friendly World!

    People and our connection to one-another drives me. It lead me into communication, and eventually down the rabbit hole into cryptocurrencies and blockchain. For me, these decentralized frameworks offer new avenues for tackling socio-economic issues.

     

    This rabbit hole as it turned out, became far more creative for me than graphic design. Though the visual aspect can come in handy. It’s the deconstruction and solution thought process of graphic design that lends well to finding collaborative tech solutions. Developing in a space this new is risky, the failure rate is high, the problems are more complex, and the answers are less clear. But I get to sink my teeth into questions like, “How do you motivate people to participate in a system that they have no concept of?” or, “Can tokenization let people be successful in less ‘profitable’ endeavours?” These are being solved with blockchains, but, “Should we fix an existing chain or build a new blockchain or have many blockchains?”. These are dense questions, and attempting to solve them is the highly creative process that keeps me digging.

     

    Currently I have my head buried in the Ethereum forums and auxiliary networks, scrolling through their latest Git-Hub commits, building simple Ethereum smart contracts and dapps, tweaking my ETH miner and broadcasting my efforts on Periscope as a community evangelist.

    Bankcoin is a highly advanced high quality digital commodity which the CFTC recognised from their first conversation with us. It is the first commodity that can cater to the entire market. If you are in currency and buying into a commodity or in an existing commodity and trading out to currency you will always be able to stay in the market by way of Bankcoin. Because Bankcoin leads in the Digital commodity space and advancement on the current financial system it has its own financial valuation and regulator which is the Bankcoin Reserve BCR. This is the single authority which governs Bankcoin. All Bankcoins come under the management of the BCR. The BCR had to formulate a unique valuation proposition as it was the only commodity of its kind in the market place knowing this its market price had to reflect an old commodity (to cater to the old system) as well as factor in its advanced intrinsic properties and capabilities for those of us that understand fully where the new financial sector is heading. This is what the Bankcoin Reserve used to make its determination on the valuation of Bankcoin. The committee, made up of the major Bankcoin stakeholders, took into consideration the following key aspects and were of the opinion that its valuation be coupled to the gold ounce price meaning the ceiling of the gold ounce price is the floor of the Bankcoin price determined 6 monthly. This gives B2B and C2C confidence in the price being stable over that period of time.

     

    You do not need a mathematics degree or a science degree to install a Bankcoin digital wallet on your computer or tablet and become a part of the Bankcoin network. All these factors including the list below are what were used to determine Bankcoins value. $1300US small number when you compare the abilities of Bankcoin over physical gold, however they both have intrinsic value and therefore a base valuation had to be determined.

    Deane is a former corporate executive who is a true global citizen having had the pleasure of living in many different countries and cultures. He currently lives in Croatia with his two teenage daughters. In August 2014 a set of life changing circumstances led to his own awakening and to finally lifting the veils of illusion.

     

    Deane stepped away from corporate responsibility, and began his own spiritual journey, and life as a solo father. He is continually growing spiritually, and now dedicates a great deal of his time to helping, healing and teaching others. He has published his own book called “Love Outside The Box”, and is a regular guest writer for several leading spiritual portals and a Croatian news portal.

     

    His inquisitiveness into historical events and places, as well as witnessing them in the present time has led him to truly appreciate all that life has to offer. A deep fascination with indigenous cultures and their way of life, how they function and more importantly, live without religions. Always challenging and questioning societies forced indoctrination and expectations of man, today he is following his heart as a philosopher and writer, and guiding others through difficult events of their life.

     

    Deane has created unique personal development programs for those who are awakening and wish to make a smooth transition to the new templates. He has a passion and in-depth understanding of past life memory, their interpretation and how to address them in current life. To understand who we are today, we need to get to grips of who we have been – through unravelling our own truth within, we create a new template for the way we live our lives – in truth!

     

    A series of “coincidences” led to him meeting with Tomislav Tesla, the great great nephew of Nikola Tesla in 2014. At that time he created a company, which today is the foundation of a cooperation and partnership with Tomislav Tesla that is called True Tesla Technologies in Croatia. Working with likeminded people who will help create and develop a sustainable living environment, as well as a technology innovation centre.
