For Circles to be used in the wider Ethereum/Gnosis Chain ecosystem group currencies are an building block that allows:
Circles to be used in applications that only expect 1 token as payment:
In Defi, exchanges like: honeyswap.org or money market like https://agave.finance/
Further we want to e.g. enable Projects to raise money in Circles and they will need liquidity of those CRC against $/€
So the need for group currencies is clear and I want to start a list for the groups that can emerge short term:
Proof of Personhood:
Those group will be brought groups and show allow anyone to enter just by “being human”.
Concrete examples are:
- proofofhumanity.id (coming to Gnosis Chain soon)
- brightid.org (not on-chain, will need to connect your Circles identity to your BirghtID identity and next probably use an oracle to verify wether the bright.ID passes the “human threshold”.
- https://humanode.io/ (not sure how ready that project is)
https://proofofpersonhood.com/ seems to already aggregate this work?
DAO/coop curated groups:
- Berlin Circles Coop
- Berlin Circles Moos
DAOs we could reach out to:
- GiveETH - each GiveETH project could have its own group.
- … many more
As soon as we allow to link your Circles identity to another EOA we can great groups based on POAPs poap.xyz. Eg. all attendees of a previous conference.
