Thank you for your input.
For this project we are following an emergent design.
The idea is to have the bare minimum implemented for communities to install and uninstall,
enable and disable... So we can work together through experimentation to find out the most
valuable features and make them added earlier.
We are focusing on some community networks... If your community wants to participate on
the design process, please right to me in private and tell me about the community. That
will allow us to prioritize.
Bruno , great that you want to contribute by coding... Let's talk in private, shall
we? So we can organize ourselves,

Why? For programming reasons? For ease of use in a particular case?
With 5 characters, that's probably enough (11,881,376), and with 7
definitely enough (8,031,810,176) to never repeat on that network.
Would it save processor energy on the router? Or maybe it would fill
memory on the router?
I think it would be easier if you don't have to keep track of expired
vouchers, but I guess it's question for the coders.

online payment so far. I can imagine some
tourists paying by card or
online system if it were available. Some (maybe
most) of the people
don't even have bank accounts (beyond the
Caimito community bank). I
imagine a community currency being created and
used to pay for
Yes, most of the communities I work with will use cash instead of
I just got curious because if that is the case, how can you extend the
voucher just by the admin interface? The user will go physically to the
admin and pay him? I was thinking more of the case where the admin
not be available, and it will be faster for the user to get a new
from a local shop. I think it's very interesting to understand the
different scenarios of community networks.
A community currency would be awesome, and I wonder how can the local
network be a facilitator for it - blockchains running on routers?
