Solidar (SDR) is a demurrage based cryptocurrency with universal basic income (UBI). Solidar is a fork of Freicoin (FRC), which is a fork of Bitcoin (BTC).
Some economical and technical explanations are on the Solidar site (https://www.solidar.it). https://github.com/wincev/solidar https://github.com/freicoin/freicoin
We wish to spread the Solidar to as much people as possible, so to reach the goal to distribute the universal basic income worldwide. The unversal basic income, to be useful to the people immediatelly, is needed to be spended to buy goods and services needed to the daylife.
To reach the goal, we can start from Italy adding to the marketplace to be created, lots of shops of enterprises which are associated to an enterpreneural association with which we have an agreement and lots of consumers associated to a consumers' association with which we have an agrement. @Domenico de Simone is a professional lawyer in Italy that signed this agreement.
1. First approach: Open Cart (abandoned)
The initial idea discussed between me, Hendrik a Fredrik was to create a Multivendor Marketplace using an ecommerce platform (the one chosed by Fredrik Bodin was Opencart), in which goods and services' payment will be possible using two currencies both, a fiat currency and solidar. This will be possible implementing a modified split payment plugin. Ordinary split payment plugins give a way to pay with cash and cards both and was used first on offline POS. The modified split payment plugin will give a way to pay some partly in a fiat currency (euro, dollar, etc) and partly in solidar. In that way we think we could spread the adoption of solidar, because lots of phisical goods have a fiat currency production/distribution chain behind, so is needed to give vendors partly fiat currencies. When chains will be closed with solidar, the percentuage of solidar will increase.
2, Second approach: Wordpress site with Woocommerce and CoinPayments.net cloud wallet account (abandoned)
To do that we need to create an internet infrastructure, where users can subscribe, can open web wallets where to receive the cryptocurrency UBI funds and can spend them on a marketplace, using partly the cryptocurrency and partly a fiat currency.
Our goal is to facilitate the creation of productive/distributive chains in which it will be possible to spend the cryptocurrency only. To reach this goal fastly we think is needed to adopt a dual currency system, with prices expressed partly in the cryptocurrency and partly in a fiat currency (dollar, euro and soon). For example on the marketplace a teapot could cost 5 SDR + 5 EUR. In that way the user will pay partly using the cryptocurrency stored in his web wallet, and partly using a fiat currency through his credit/prepaid card. The user will see the system as a discounted fiat currency payment (UBI is given for free, so he really pays only 5 EUR). A market like that is competitive with an ordinary market due the reduced price of goods, but at the same time is helped the creation of a parallel market working only with the cryptocurrency. So, more the marketplace is used and more the cryptocurrency part of the price will increase and the fiat currency part will decrease.
We found a Wordpress plugin with which is possible to create web wallets on a Wordpress site, in which users can deposit their bitcoins/altcoins, withdraw, and transfer to other users. In our case solidars. The plugin works with a Bitcoin full node, and also with a cloud wallet.
To do that is needed to add Solidar to CoinPayments.net https://www.coinpayments.net and to create a yearly hosting plan for the cloud wallet.
Using that plugin, we can connect the other plugin to the Solidar through API. https://www.dashed-slug.net/bitcoin-altcoin-wallets-wordpress-plugin/coinpayments-adapter-extension/
Our goal is to create an users' easy-to-use interface like the one adopted on Mannabase (https://www.mannabase.com/) but their code is not reusable because is closed code.
After we have web wallets, we need to send on them the UBI (universal basic income) funds each month. We could use another plugin developped by the same coder, for airdrops,
After the users have their web wallets and the UBI funds on them, they need to spend them.
That's the code we need to develop. We need to express prices on Woocommerce/WC-Marketplace (which is a plugin for multivendor marketplaces like Amazon) in SDR+EUR (or USD, and other fiat currencies). When an user pays goods or services he has to first pay the part in SDR and then the part in fiat currency. With a scheme like this:
The bitcoin/alcoin payment gateway for Woocommerce is already developped! https://www.dashed-slug.net/bitcoin-altcoin-wallets-wordpress-plugin/woocommerce-cryptocurrency-payment-gateway-extension/
and the fiat currencies Paypal payment gateway for Woocommerce could be this https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/paypal-standard/
Now we need all this working on a real installation of a multivendor marketplace! With commissions from vendors part SDR and part fiat currencies... But if we have the software before described we can do it!
We need to sync on Github the last development commits of Freicoin with Solidar, because they share a similar data base. The Freicoin developpers enhanced the code to make faster transactions and so we need this sync. https://github.com/wincev/solidar https://github.com/freicoin/freicoin
3. Third approach: Wordress site with Woocommerce and Solidar Full Node
1) A WordPress Multisite site. We could create a WordPress Multisite site (with subdomains’ based sub-sites) where users can subscribe to create web wallets. https://wordpress.org/ https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network
2) A WordPress based web wallets’ system. We could create a web wallets’ system based on WordPress, in which users can deposit the cryptocurrency, withdraw, and transfer it to other users. Our goal is to create an users’ easy-to-use interface like the one adopted on MannaBase https://www.mannabase.com/ but unfortunately their code is not reusable because is a closed code. To do that so we could use this open source plugin:
The plugin works with a bitcoin/altcoin full node, in our case with a Solidar Full Node. Then to connect the first plugin to the full node, we could use this open source plugin:
3) A WordPress based UBI donation system. After we have web wallets working on the WordPress site, we need to send cryptocurrency UBI funds to users each month. To do that we could use an open source plugin developped for airdrops:
5) A WordPress based multivendor marketplace. After the users have their web wallets and the UBI funds on them, they need to spend them, so we could setup a multivendor marketplace based on Woocommerce plugin and Dokan sub-plugin:
4) A WordPress based dual currency payment gateway
After the multivendor marketplace is created, the users need to pay goods and services using the cryptocurrency in their wallets and the fiat currency in their credit/prepaid cards. The bitcoin/altcoin payment gateway for Woocommerce is already developped, so we could use that open source plugin: https://www.dashed-slug.net/bitcoin-altcoin-wallets-wordpress-plugin/woocommerce-cryptocurrency-payment-gateway-extension/
and the fiat currencies payment gateway for Woocommerce (based on Paypal) also exists, so we could use this open source plugin: https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/paypal-standard/
6) A WordPress based dual currency Woocommerce plugin
The dual currency Woocommerce plugin has to be written .
The action required is to write a Woocommerce plugin that has these functions: a) express goods and services’ prices in a cryptocurrency plus in a fiat currency on Woocommerce. b) Chain up the Woocommerce altcoins’ payments gateway and the fiat currencies’ payments gateway so to make possible for an user to make a dual currency payment.
Here’s the flow chart of the requested plugin features:
