Monetary policy is typically a centralized activity. The goal of central banks is relative purchasing power stability in the base unit of currency.

Economies are people. Five years ago, when we launched SolarCoin, our economic vision was simple: by growing the number of people claiming their free reward, a useful $10–20 economic incentive for solar energy can emerge. The theory is that currencies are protocols with emergent value.
