The “Gift Economy (reputation based)” android project is started ! Will you contribute ?
Motivation of the project is the manifesto exposed in article: “Is this money based economy the only our chance?” . Now I wish develop apps that make that kind of economy a real one. First step is to build a Free & Open Source (GPL v.2 license) Android app , compatible with all those smartphones & tablets. The Eclipse Android source project is live and public on GitHub.
The app will be totally Peer-to-peer and serverless to avoid any central administration or control of the data. The peer-to-peer technology chosen is Kademlia DHT ( BitTorrent and Emule) [reference for implementations: 1,2]. All the Reputations and testimonies made will have to be encrypted by a private key (same as Bitcoin does with his transactions) to avoid fake and/or massive span ones.
Here below you can see Use Cases and Classes Diagram to understand what we will get at the end of the project.
Feel free to join the project on github workplace !
