Three good reasons to own a EquaCoin wallet

Three good reasons to own a EquaCoin wallet (and get rid of / from bank money)


On 9 November 2017, the ECB issued a document (page 8, here: https://www.bankingsupervision.europa.eu/ecb/legal/pdf/en_con_2017_47_f_sign.pdf) which provides that in the event of a crisis, banks may stay closed for 5 working days. If the announcement is made on Friday it is clear that the banks would remain closed for at least 9 days: the following Saturday and Sunday, then the 5 days Monday to Friday, then again Saturday and Sunday and if there are no other scheduled holidays - as Christmas and New Year - the banks would finally reappear on Monday the second week after the announcement, ten days later. During this time, no user transactions will be possible through the normal banking circuit and we wonder whether this measure could ever be a measure of stabilization - rather than destabilization - of the economic and financial system. In addition, the document removes bank deposit guarantees and threatens the rationing of withdrawals in banknotes.
When cash withdrawals were ransacked in Greece, the ATMs of the House of Representatives of Greece were dealt with by the Members themselves, who benefited from a special preferential regime reserved for them. They withdrew as much cash as possible two days before blocking the public by enjoying insider trading.

Security first of all

All this with the EquaCoin electronic purse can not be done. In fact, unlike the bank account, the electronic purse is segregated from the accounting of the company EquaCoin launching the initiative. Current accounts, on the other hand, are linked to the bank's accounts where they are lit because they are not considered as coins but rather bank liabilities! The customer thinks they have real money on the account - and in fact international accounting standards consider deposits as cash - but banks, for tax and opportunistic reasons, prefer to consider customer money as a simple future commitment of the bank to deliver what appears in the customer account statement ... EquaCoin is already available in the electronic purse and the purse is a bearer's property just as if they were official currency coins in a normal physical purse. However, unlike the physical purse, the EquaCoin purse is nominative, can not be lost or stolen without the proprietor being able to claim the property. Public economic order is safe.

The second point: direct democracy

The ownership of a EquaCoin purse guarantees a right to vote on the monetary policies of the EquaCoin system to all the purse owners (one head one vote). The vote is direct without the intermediation of representatives.

The third point: equality

Voting by an owner of a purse with an EquaCoin has the same value as that of an owner of a purse that holds more than one EquaCoin. Anyone who downloads the EquaCoin purse is entitled to receive the first EquaCoin for free.

These three topics together already represent an unknown value to other monetary systems in force today. Not to mention that transactions between purse users happen in real time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and at a very low cost: less than a cent of a EUR per transaction.  

Tre buoni motivi per scegliere EquaCoin

Tre buoni motivi per avere un borsellino EquaCoin (e liberarsi della/dalla moneta bancaria)
Democrazia istantanea

Il 9 novembre 2017 la BCE ha rilasciato un documento (pag. 8, qui: https://www.bankingsupervision.europa.eu/ecb/legal/pdf/en_con_2017_47_f_sign.pdf ) che prevede che in caso di crisi, le banche possono rimanere chiuse per 5 giorni lavorativi. Se l’annuncio viene dato di venerdì è evidente che le banche rimarrebbero chiuse almeno 9 giorni: il sabato e domenica successivo, poi i 5 giorni dal lunedì al venerdì, poi ancora il sabato e domenica e, se non ci sono altre feste programmate – come natale e capodanno – le banche finalmente riaprirebbero il lunedì della seconda settimana dopo l’annuncio, dieci giorni dopo. In questo periodo non saranno possibili transazioni degli utenti attraverso il normale circuito bancario e viene da chiedersi se questa misura possa mai essere considerata una misura di stabilizzazione – piuttosto che di destabilizzazione – del sistema economico-finanziario.
Oltre a questo, il documento toglie le garanzie ai depositi bancari e minaccia il razionamento dei prelievi in banconote ai bancomat.
Quando in Grecia furono razionati i prelievi ai bancomat, si assistette alla corsa al bancomat dello sportello interno della Camera dei deputati greca da parte dei deputati stessi che usufruivano di un regime speciale di favore a loro riservato. I deputati ritirarono quanto più contante possibile due giorni prima del blocco al pubblico godendo di informazioni privilegiate (insider trading).

La sicurezza prima di tutto

Tutto questo con il borsellino elettronico EquaCoin non può avvenire. Infatti, a differenza del conto corrente bancario, il borsellino elettronico è segregato dalla contabilità della società EquaCoin che lancia l’iniziativa. I conti correnti invece sono collegati alla contabilità della banca in cui sono accesi poiché non vengono considerati moneta, ma bensì passività della banca stessa ! Il cliente pensa di avere soldi veri sul conto – e difatti le norme contabili internazionali considerano i depositi come contanti – ma le banche, per motivi fiscali ed opportunistici, preferiscono considerare i soldi della clientela come una passività bancaria, un semplice impegno futuro della banca di consegnare quello che appare come moneta legale nell’estratto conto dei clienti… Nel borsellino elettronico EquaCoin gli EquaCoin sono già disponibili ed il borsellino rappresenta una proprietà del portatore proprio come le monetine in valuta ufficiale in un normale borsellino fisico. A differenza però dal borsellino fisico, il borsellino EquaCoin è nominativo e non può essere rubato o sottratto senza che il proprietario ne possa rivendicare la proprietà. L’ordine pubblico economico è salvo.

Il secondo punto: la democrazia diretta

La proprietà di un borsellino EquaCoin garantisce un diritto di voto procapite sulle politiche monetarie del sistema EquaCoin a tutti i proprietari del borsellino. Il voto è diretto senza l’intermediazione di rappresentanti.

Il terzo punto: l'equità

Il voto di un proprietario di un borsellino con dentro un EquaCoin ha lo stesso valore di quello di un proprietario di un borsellino che contiene cento o più EquaCoin. Chiunque scarica il borsellino EquaCoin ha diritto a ricevere il primo EquaCoin gratuitamente.

Questi tre argomenti assieme rappresentano già un valore sconosciuto ad altri sistemi monetari oggi in vigore. Senza contare che le transazioni tra gli utenti dei borsellini avvengono in tempo reale, 24 ore su 24, sette giorni su sette, e a costo bassissimo: un millesimo di Waves a transazione (
corrispondente a circa un centesimo di euro).
