Promoting the local community to buy locally

The highest priority around the world, the most urgent issues, are centred around fundamental changes to our structural, educational and economic infrastructure.

As we all know, everything from the Global Financial Crisis to Global warming tells us that we need a fundamental structural and economic change in society.

What we have seen worldwide, is that there is a trend towards a split between the government and the interest of the people and that governments are pursuing an economic model that is simply outdated, and possibly corrupt with influence from the financial elite that pushes their agenda of Globalisation.

Globalisation is a model for the financial elite that says: more trade, more production for export, and more cost cutting, more foreign labour, more venture capital with more profit for greedy shareholders and more foreign investment to mention a few. That’s their formula for creating prosperity for themselves – not the People.

This formula is a Master-Slave model that is not working great for the People.

And from our point of view, the change that we need to make is shifting away from Globalisation or Nationalisation to “Localisation with Decentralisation” of our economic activity.

Localisation is about bringing economics and well-being back to a personal scale of sustainability and self-sovereignty. It is the process of building economic structures that allow the goods and services of a regional territory to become independent and self-sustaining to its community.

It has been said by many that Localisation is the greatest solution that offers a systemic, far-reaching alternative to corporate capitalism, as well as communism. However, it is not about centralised authority hijacking this concept and restricting and disempowering the local community and infringing on our human rights.

Localisation is a way of dramatically reducing CO2 emissions, energy consumption and all kinds of waste, whilst increasing our first and foremost, fundamental human right, being the “Pursuit of Happiness” without centralised control, greed and obstruction.

At the same time, localising economic activity can restore biodiversity as well as cultural diversity. It’s a way of raising the value of property and business locally, whilst creating meaningful and secure jobs for the entire community and perhaps the most important of all is about rebuilding the fabric of societal connection, the fabric of social bonding between people and between people and their local economic and territorial environment.

Localisation can be the smart economics of happiness for our 21st century. At Barteos, we have had our eyes open to Localisation, and how we as the world’s first commercial-grade, decentralised, Peer-to-Peer Payments Platform can assist a regional community to make local economics a thriving reality.

We have seen the connection between the economy out there and our well-being and inner happiness when the last Global Financial Crisis threw us into a situation whereby small towns converted to a Bartering system to by-pass the collapse, threat and uncertainty that the centralised financial system had forced upon us.

Barter companies sprouted up around the world with a resurgence, to by-pass the risky centralised financial rails and the Bail-in laws that were experienced when private financial companies practically stole money from our accounts to bail themselves out of bankruptcy, like the experience in Cyprus and Greece etc.

Small country Towns are generally self-sustaining and when push comes to shove they have shown that they can operate independently and can survive a Global Financial Crisis better than any city or country or the world generally.

So, we at Barteos are very motivated to try to bring this Localisation message out to the world by providing and deploying a fee-free, peer-to-peer, localised Barter Trading Exchange system that allows a local community to thrive whilst protecting our fundamental human rights.

It’s time to join the Decentralised-Localised Movement and Barteos will be speaking a lot more about it, inviting technologists, economists, environmentalists, anthropologists, and people from every continent who are basically promoting change to a better system of living and the freedom to control our own pursuit of happiness.

The most powerful and the most inspiring and heartening part of the localisation movement is to decentralise our economic “means of exchange”. It’s all about educating and innovating to entice but not-force People to trade locally, ensuring that we also secure our financial human rights.

Get ready to rock the Globalists as Barteos unveils in 2023 further technological innovation that will change the way we trade and do business with localisation and decentralisation being the theme for a thriving and happy local community that will lead to a better world.

Let’s use innovative autonomous technology to bring the “Power of the People” to rule as a true democracy, rather than handing over power to the few!

Is Your Personal Financial Data Safe?

Do you want to private companies with a few shareholders keeping your fiat currency, whilst also having unlimited free access to your precious personal financial Data? 

We believe that no private, profit-driven business should own our precious personal data collected in the guise of compliance like 99% of cryptocurrency that are private company owned. 

As a de-centralised, ownerless system, your data remains as your Digital Gold – Always Private. You will have full control of your finances and data, whilst being more secure than banks, thanks to the invention of the blockchain by Satoshi Nakamoto. You become your own Bank! 

Barteos has private transactions like banks to ensure that our personal financial data is kept private and safe, from your neighbours, government and private companies. With Barteos, your finances are more secure from a GFC that results in Bank Bailouts. 

The Future Will Be De-Centralised But Regulated

Decentralised technology started as “public domain” or “commons” and is synonymous with “ownerless”. Yet, today 99% of our industry is operated by private shareholder driven companies issuing currency. This breaks the whole mould and meaning of “Decentralised” and reduces it to become the very thing it is not – centralised.

We have entered a new era of useable Decentralised cryptocurrency that is commercial-grade, yet most of the cryptocurrency industry has been founded in the last decade on financial trading markets being built with the speculation of a notional promise “that one day, it will be used by the people” commercially. This is simply not going to happen for the top 100 cryptocurrencies as they neither have the technology or deployment capability to replace centralised systems like visa mastercard alipay wepay etc

The truth is that ownerless models like Bitcoin, Ethereum or their modern regulated version, “Barteos” are difficult for people to distinguish between these few “Public Benefit” technology cryptocurrencies that are “non-human tech entities” over the centralised “human tech entities” that benefit the few.

Barteos believes that true Decentralised Autonomous Systems will only survive if they are regulated and need to be given a special status by the United Nations which, like the internet, can be called “public domain” or “commons”, as long as it is governed by an independent non-profit in each country with no shareholders, yet can be a federated group of governing bodies acting as one globally. This is Barteos, this is Bitcoin 2.0

Furthermore, this would mean that we can clearly define, that public users, have the option to use such a public and unrestricted “system” or “utility” and will never be liable for the losses of others, as millions of People on a global scale surpassing boundaries of national jurisdiction have now become dependant on this new Decentralised technology system for the services it provides – and for the “proof of” and “access to” their individual digital assets.

By reading the “Barteos Creed” found at https://barteos.org.au/about/barteos-creed/ you can discover the mindset of the modern-day Decentralist model and join the Barteos Quest for our financial human rights.

What does a Centralised Cashless Society Guarantee You?

A Centralised Cashless Society is when our Country’s payment system is controlled by a private organisation with shareholders like Banks, Facebook, Alipay etc or by a Centralised Government. 

At Barteos, we believe that the time has come to assist the world to recover from centralisation and corporate greed that has dominated our society for far too long.

Misplaced capital from fear of missing out, uncertainty and doubt, with fancy corporate images and hype, has been a common place in digital currency projects, especially in this new era where many private companies are posing as decentralised systems when in fact they are owned by a few shareholders and are profit-driven.

Barteos Australia operates as a registered non-profit organisation offers a third option to the community and is the real fair dinkum deal.

Your choice is to either support a power-profit-driven organisation or a purpose-driven organisation like Barteos Australia, incorporated for our common good and our real common-wealth and with money-saving autonomous technology that is second-to-none in the world.

Supporting private companies that are Barteos-style imposters was not a choice for the foundation members that truly believe in Decentralisation, and as a result, Barteos is here, and will set the standard for every other country in the world to follow.

In a Centralised System, you can expect:

  • these entities to have full control of every cent you own;
  • every transaction you make will be recorded, even a few dollars sent to a child;
  • all your movements & actions will be traceable;
  • access to your money will be blocked with a click;
  • if your transactions are deemed in any way questionable, by those who create the questions, your money will be frozen, ‘for your own good’
  • your precious financial Data will be exploited for Money or Power over you … or Both

Now we have a third option … an Ownerless, Decentralised system that can scale globally and gives us an alternative to current centralised payments systems: This is Barteos!

Barteos is considered a “commons software” and is free to be used by all Australians. Barteos is governed in Australia by BE PAY AUSTRALIA LIMITED, being an ownerless organisation with no shareholders and incorporated for the benefit of the people of Australia.

BE-PAY is a community-benefit social enterprise that believes in the use of the best in technology to empower you, the individual, with their freedom of choice and financial security.

What are your thoughts?

If Australia became cashless, should the financial system be operated by:

  1. a community-benefit organisation with no shareholders; or
  2. the government; or
  3. a large corporate business with shareholders?
