TLDR: I’m part of an organization that you’d likely be interested in learning about. I’m convinced it has the same forward-thinking appeal as The Venus Project did back when TZM first started promoting it.
At the very least we’re currently doing a celebrity NFT project for charity where celebrities/influencers/public figures can claim a free NFT of themselves, and sell it to the highest bidder in hopes that the celebrity will do something positive with the money they receive. If someone is in contact with PJ, and he’s interested, I’ll have an NFT made for him, and he can claim it, sell it, and do whatever he’d like with the money.
Long-time fan of TZM since its origins w/ Addendum. Dabbled in TZM street activism in Michigan, still listen to PJ’s podcasts, absorbed pretty much all TZM-related content, yada yada…
I currently work with an organization known as The Singularity Group. We’re a dedicated group of ~50 people in Germany that have very similar aims as TZM: pushing humanity forward in the most sustainable, rational way possible.
Lately we’ve been primarily focused on our mobile game, Clash of Streamers, that’s been in the works for five years now. The game is the first of its kind with a “play to earn” system where players accumulate “crypton,” a currency in our game, and, upon donating their currency to charity, receive an equivalent amount of GUBI (gamified universal basic income) in return. GUBI is a cryptocurrency that can easily be exchanged for fiat currency, allowing players to “cash out” with their earnings from simply playing the game. The game also has full blockchain and NFT integration and is already available on the Google Play Store and iOS App Store. (LoL, this is starting to sound like an ad.) Either way, we’re a very data-driven organization, and our current statistics show that the game is going to be wildly successful. It’s already in the top 100 top-grossing adventure games in the US Google Play Store, and I think it’s top 10 in the countries we’re currently heavily targeting with ads, namely Indonesia and the Philippines. The crazy part is we haven’t even started pumping big money into our ads yet.
It’s not just the game that’s novel and interesting. Our organization is comprised of people who had no prior experience in the gaming industry, and most of which had no prior coding experience. A large part of our success comes from our organization’s founder, Bachir Boumaaza, better known as “Athene” in the public sphere. He’s a figure much like Jacque Fresco in that he’s dedicated his life to organizing projects that prove to have the biggest impact possible given our current resources. He’s already helped raise 25 million dollars for charity and has a tremendous philanthropic track record. Casually speaking, there’s gotta be something up with his brain. The man does not, stop, working, and from what I’ve gathered he’s been going at it nonstop for many years. Then again, we all work pretty hard at this point, so it’s definitely a collaborative effort.
Ok, you’re probably thinking “Yada yada, what does this have to do with TZM?” I had the thought that it might be interesting for TZM to partner up with an organization again, similar to what we had with The Venus Project. Back in the day, I remember it being quite a nice synergy to present information about an RBE and also show The Venus Project as something “tangible” and novel that’d catch people’s attention. And there are many aspects of our organization that I’m sure would be intriguing to the average person. For one, our building is technically a church. We found it easier to donate more to charity by starting a religion, so we’re technically “coding priests” in a sense. There’s also the fact that no one here takes a profit. Athene himself doesn’t even own a bank account. Minus the cost of maintaining the building, this ensures that 100% of our profits go to forward-thinking projects. And it’s not just generic “charity.” Every single dollar is strategically spent in a way that pushes system change rather than temporarily alleviating problems that will eventually resurface. Again, speaking casually, we’re a kewl group of nerds that are about to dominate the UBI scene. (And yes, I know that UBI is just a band-aid, but it’s a nice stepping stone that gives people the opportunity to find out about TZM in the first place).
Alright, enough chitchat. Let me provide some useful links for you guys:
https://singularitygroup.net/ ← The organization’s website. EVEN IF YOU HAVE NO PRIOR CODING EXPERIENCE the door is open for dedicated individuals who want to work with us to make a difference. Our group functions in a way that constantly pushes for efficiency and consistent improvement in our workflow. It’s truly unique.
Athene and Gaming for Good | Save the Children ← Athene has already helped raise over 25 million for charity without taking a penny. He could literally be kicked out of our building at a moment’s notice because he doesn’t own a single thing. He’s a literal hobo in a technical sense
https://clashofstreamers.com ← Our mobile game. So much innovation has gone into this project. No other game on the big mobile stores has full blockchain/NFT integration yet. We’ve already been contacted by multi-billion-dollar Chinese publishers who want to publish our game in China. We’ll eventually be a billion-dollar organization, no doubt.
GUBI | Clash of Streamers ← GUBI (Gamified Universal Basic Income)
https://prps.io/ ← GUBI is tied into our other philanthropic cryptocurrencies, Purpose (PRPS) and DUBI (Decentralized Universal Basic Income). Once the money starts coming in from our game, we’ll fund exchange programs with people from developing countries. They’ll come here and learn whatever skills they need to develop big projects that they can then implement in their own country. These projects will be fully funded by us. That being said, our plans always remain subject to change based on what will have the maximum impact. We’re very flexible!
Stream Most Confrontational Real Talk Ever (Podcast #75) by Athene Real Talk Podcast | Listen online for free on SoundCloud ← Athene’s podcast. It’s been a couple years since he’s put out a new episode, but a lot of people that came over here were influenced by it. The linked podcast (#75) is one of his more controversial episodes, but they’re all pretty direct.
Twitch ← Athene currently streams daily on Twitch, revealing our progress as an organization, along with most of our financial data coming from our mobile game. We’re extremely transparent with the details of our organization/projects.
https://kickstartnft.io/ ← One of our side projects, and another reason why I’m writing this post. If someone is in contact with Peter Joseph, and he’s interested, I’ll have an NFT made for him and he can claim it and sell it for money. I can’t emphasize enough that there are no strings attached with this. We don’t want anything from him. We also have an event coming up that will push the project’s popularity, so it’s in Peter’s interest to claim his NFT early.
Alright, that should be enough links to get anyone started if they’re interested. If TZM is potentially looking for a project to get behind, or a partnership that could bring relevance back to the movement, I can’t recommend this organization enough. We’re already gaining relevance. We have a “working solution/product” with very promising potential for system change. We don’t take breaks, so we’re able to outpace most organizations/companies. And we have some of the most dedicated people you can imagine. Please consider applying to become an official member, especially if you currently have coding experience. I can guarantee that if you’re dedicated and serious about having an impact in the world, no other grassroots organization on the planet mimics what we’ve put together here. I’m Fargoth#6423 in the TZM discord if you wanna message me with questions. I’m also up for having a casual chat if you’re really interested in learning more about us. Ah, and one more thing I just thought of: we eat completly plant-based here! How sick is that !?
Btw, congratulations on Zeitgeist Day 2021 in Mongolia!!!
