I made a website/application. It's pretty much a prototype at this point but it's functional and you can sign in and use it and stuff.
Code is here:
It is a viable replacement (in it's final form) for replacing the current banking system. It allows regular people to just bank themselves using whatever currency they want. It may be my opinion, but it's a highly educated opinion with years of study backing it up.
If you want sound money you can use it.
If you want to bank with Bitcoin you can use it for that too.
If you want to bank with dollars but outside the Federal Reserve system, it works for that also.
The documentation on the site is a bit skimpy but it's coming slowly. It just went live today. I've been working on it (coding-wise) pretty much for two months straight in addition to my normal job, although the idea and project itself has been going on and off for me for over 10 years. It predates my time here at RPF.
If you're interested in learning, it may take a while to grasp exactly how it works, but that's what this thread is for.
Think it needs an improvement? I'm all ears.
Think you can do better? Code is open source. Change it, make it better. I can help you with ideas.
I'm available for hire and general trolling of corporate/government shills, and pseudo-intellectuals. Donations are also appreciated. Just $5 can feed wiz bologna and cheese for a week.
On a serious note:
To me the most important thing is educating an initial group of people about exactly what the metric reserve idea is. It's built, so it's obvious it's a real thing, next question is what is it good for? If we're serious about alternatives to the Fed this is my 10K+ contribution to the discussion. If we're not, then well I can hone my Call of Duty Black Ops II: Zombies skills.
All I've heard for years is sound money this and that. What is preventing us from using sound money? Now, officially, I can say "nothing but us".
So click on over and sign up, until you're confused, then come back over here and ask for help. You don't have to "use it" use it. But you can help just by test driving and creating an account. You simply sign in with your google account. It only exposes your email address associated with your google account internally, other users don't even see that. So you aren't revealing anything special by signing up and it isn't going to ask you for any private info.
At the moment my friend, who happens to be the one who first turned me on to Ron Paul is my only member at www.metricreserve.com.
poopeater69, thank you for all your help over the years!
I say this is my first and last thread because this project was my original impetus to even be part of the movement. It was always about solution to money problem for me. So in a way, it's my first "official" thread and really last as well. Because I doubt I personally will see taking the lead on any other type of project as important until this is off the ground, if that ever happens.
Anyway, certainly I've watching this thread if anyone has any questions. Otherwise I'll periodically update with any new awesome features. Likely, though I will take somewhat of a breather after working on this for two months. At least shift gears, and go a bit slower. Wifey has been extremely supportive.
And also, last point, RPF is not some place I'm "advertising" my site. I consider this place my base of operations. I'm not door-to-door'ing my way across the internet to sell this idea. If it doesn't grow legs here, there's little hope anywhere else. Ultimately, it's all in the Lords hands anyway.
