Freedom as a Core Principle

Inspired by the Four Essential Freedoms of the Free Libre Open Source Software movement (FOSS or FLOSS = Copyleft GNU & AGPL licences), which respects the users' basic software freedoms to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software, Ğ1 currency is designed to respect basic economic freedoms.

Basic Economic Freedoms

In a Free/Libre currency, you are free to:
  • use resources,
  • create and assign value,
  • choose any monetary system,
  • and trade with its currency.

A Free/Libre Currency

Libre is the French or Spanish word for free, and is borrowed to show that Ğ1 currency is free as in freedom (not as in zero price). Even though you won't have to buy Ğ1s, it doesn't necessary mean that it is free, as you will likely want to invest your time and energy in developing a Ğ1 market in your community.
