CHARTER OF IOUERS

Preamble:

 CONGRUENT WITH NATURAL LAW AND BASED ON THE United Nation's DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

ARTICLE 23 (3) EVERYONE WHO WORKS HAS THE RIGHT TO JUST AND FAVOURABLE REMUNERATION ENSURING FOR HIMSELF AND HIS FAMILY AN EXISTENCE WORTHY OF HUMAN DIGNITY, AND SUPPLEMENTED, IF NECESSARY, BY OTHER MEANS OF SOCIAL PROTECTION.

AND

ARTICLE 25 (1) EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO A STANDARD OF LIVING ADEQUATE FOR THE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF HIMSELF AND OF HIS FAMILY, INCLUDING FOOD, CLOTHING, HOUSING AND MEDICAL CARE AND NECESSARY SOCIAL SERVICES, AND THE RIGHT TO SECURITY IN THE EVENT OF UNEMPLOYMENT, SICKNESS, DISABILITY, WIDOWHOOD, OLD AGE OR OTHER LACK OF LIVELIHOOD IN CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND HIS CONTROL,

We, IOU community, also known as "IOUers",

understanding that

WHEREAS THE CURRENT FINANCIAL SYSTEM

  • became ineffective, and does not satisfactory realize the requirements of contemporary society dynamics as per Articles 23 (3) and 25 (1) of the UN’s Declaration of Human Rights,

  • brings tremendous inequality between countries and peoples,

  • is orientated towards short-range profits which contributes to social and ecological crisis's,

  • has a linear one-dimensional national fiat currency approach that thwarts development in wide areas of the worlds economies,

AND FOR THESE ENDS THE IOU COMMUNITY PROVIDES THE ABILITY

  • to practice peer to peer free trade, a stepping stone to living together in peace as good neighbors,

  • to unite and free peoples economic strength through free trade, and for that good will to maintain international peace and prosperity,

  • to ensure, by the acceptance of natural law principles that that trade commerce is voluntary, that force shall not be used, save in the common interest of all,

  • for the promotion of the economic and social advancement of all peoples,

HAVE RESOLVED TO COMBINE OUR EFFORTS TO ACCOMPLISH THESE AIMS

Accordingly, parties are free to transact as they desire in an unhindered peer to peer manner. In doing so individuals can create and issue tokenized promissory notes, IOU, redeemable for goods and services as mutually agreed and terms specified. These notes are controlled only by the issuer and holder. The IOU can be used in further exchanges as an alternative “backed” currency. The fungibility of tokens and the ratings of issuers of IOUs by the community using them provides those that do not know each other or are in different locals the information and ability to transact.

The issuance of private currencies, IOUs, will promote new ways to launch projects, businesses, pay for education, assist people to achieve their goals, work their way out of poverty or remain self sufficient in economies that are ever changing and excluding.

The economic self sufficiency extends to the community of those using IOU's, tokenized promissory notes, because of their peer to peer collaboration. The voluntary terms between the issuer and holder and their reciprocity constructs a strong community as the participants work together to accomplish their and each others goals. This enriching cooperation is immeasurable.
