Hello!😄 this document is a brief introduction to what FairCoop's ecosystem is about, how it operates and how it is organized; and also to the ways of communicating it uses, which vary depending on the situation and the projects involved. Everybody who embraces FairCoop's values may participate freely and cooperate, but please do take some time and read this guide carefully beforehand. In the meantime, don't hesitate to ask us any question and get involved as soon as you're ready!
📌What is FairCoop..?
An international community of people who are in the process of setting up a self-managed, cooperative, supportive, ecological and autonomous socioeconomic ecosystem for the transition to alternative models of organization based on justice and equity. FairCoop promotes the use of FairCoin as social capital and as a reserve of value: it is a digital currency (cryptocoin) that is fair, ecological, decentralized, and supportive of the common good.
