Anoma: Undefining Money and Scaling Anarchism with Christopher Goes (CER)

This episode is the start of a subseries where I've partnered with my comrade Giulio Quarta from the Crypto Commons Association and their initiative called the Commons Economy Roadmap (CER) where we will be interviewing some of the projects listed as part of the CER. In this first interview we've spoken to Christopher Goes, co-founder of Anoma, a framework for an ecosystem of blockchain based protocols launched in 2021 that introduces an "intent-centric architecture" for decentralized systems, defining themselves as a “third generation protocol” and a distributed operating system. 

During the interview we discuss what intents actually are, the potential socio-political implications of the technology, and how Anoma intends to help us rethink money and value. We also took a bit of a dive into a paper from C4SS titled "The Problem of Scale in Anarchism and the case for Cybernetic Communism" and how Anoma and intents relate.

You can find a transcription of the interview on the CER website here.

The CER is a knowledge base and promotion protocol to highlight and empower what we consider to be among the most relevant 20 projects in the current economic juncture: companies and ecosystems that are building open infrastructures to regenerate society, to support the struggle of citizens, farmers, activists, scientists, tech experts and entrepreneurs on the ground at the dawn of global collapse.

The Crypto Commons Association is also a project within Breadchain, an organization I co-founded for building blockchain apps from a left-wing political POV.
