CREATING A REGENERATIVE ECONOMY
THE COWRIE GIFTING MODEL
The Community Upliftment Trust is gifted an allocation of COWRIE every year on Nelson Mandela‘s birthday (18 July).
The Trust utilises the COWRIE for the upliftment of the communities in South Africa in a democratised and transparent fashion.
TARGETED AIR STRIKE MODEL
The COWRIE eco-system offers a Targeted Airstrike Gifting Model whereby anyone, including foreigners and institutions can nominate a community or a cause they want to support, and COWRIE can be airdropped into the wallets of the chosen community or cause recipients directly using peer to peer gifting.
Thereby creating a regenerative economy and uplifting the local communities of South Africa.
This Targeted Airstrike Gifting Model embraces the 8 Principles of a regenerative economy as outlined by the figure below:
The 8 Principles of a regenerative economy.
How do we create a regenerative economy?
The figure to the left depicts some of the use cases of COWRIE.
For example, The Community Upliftment Trust uses the MobiJobs Gig Economy platform where South Africans can list their services for free and be paid in COWRIE.
The Trust sources workers from the MobiJobs platform and pays the workers in COWRIE.
The workers that have been paid in COWRIE then use their COWRIE to buy consumables from Crypto Valley, local Spaza Shops, play with FANTOKENS or buy NFTs.
