From the material to the informational, the static to the dynamic, the isolated to the networked
Every agent possesses the authority to issue assets, including money and equity, that are guided by distinct logics. Without central issuers, ledgers, or privileged financial agencies, accountability rests with the distributed network itself.
The power to issue assets becomes a catalyst for economic communication, coordination, and the organization of postcapitalist value forms and alternative modes of value calculation. We move from social media to economic media.
Issuance is not subject to centralized regulation. Agents within the network reciprocally regulate issuance to one another, leveraging their collective informational and computational capacities as forms of mutual aid.
Reciprocal stakeholding serves as our primary networking primitive. Agents establish peer to peer economic links through reciprocal stakeholding, enabling distributed credit, and networked performance relationships.
Every participant shares both the downside and upside of their economic performances. Everyone is directly or transitively invested in each other, so the network as a whole is invested in every agent.
Postcapitalist protocols allow for the recognition, accounting and accounting of forms of surplus other than profit. Agents co-create the terms by which they value their co-creations. Surplus in bespoke terms creates both network liquidity and liquidity in the “real world.”
Performance supersedes production, allowing an economic framing to any activity. So-called “externalities”, such as clean air, biosphere health, knowledge creation, and education, may be recognized, organized, and valued within new economic networks.
We invite you to co-publish the "Protocols for Postcapitalist Expression" book as an open access publication and a strategic intervention in the political economy.
The book has been divided into 729 units of discourse, encoded as unique NFTs with generative rights designed to unleash postcapitalism as an ongoing collective discourse and practice. Protocols aims to catalyze a historically nascent community, engaging in discourse creation, and with that the rethinking and remaking of our relationships with knowledge, expressivity and value.
The revolution will not be televised; it will be economically expressed.
First step is to apply for an invite right here or get one from an existing Discourse Unit holder.
As an unit of discourse holder, you get the following rights:
-download the book-PDF
-get the printed copy of the book
-access the ECSA token presale
-access the Discord
-govern the DAO
The Economic Space Agency (ECSA) is developing a postcapitalist economic grammar – a set of economic-organizational protocols – which will reshape the economic game. By approaching the economy as an information and value transfer network (economic media), the ECSA grammar is reshaping economic interactions to emphasise collaboration, shared risk-taking, and collective wealth redefinition and distribution. The ECSA token multistake will give everyone access to the protocols’ expressive powers and allow all participants to capture financially the value of being networked.
