SATURDAY 2.5. 
14-17 SESSION 3: USE OF BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY
Finance is potential, but so is blockchain, organizationally. It opens us means to a transformation from a cooperative (which really belongs as a formal organizational form to last century as a resistance to industrial capitalism) to a more flexible, potential, plastic, open, rhizomatic organization. And when we put these too together – which is the design of the Hood Note – things start to happen. Financial technologies are alone “dumb” and like require the blockchain to exploit their full topological capacity. Blockchain makes n-1 horizontal or rhizomatic organization possible, and by adding structured and synthetic finance to it, we reengineer there also self-operating economic attractors for this cooperation/organization. Ones that do not make it purely competitive, egoistic, game theoretical, based on creditor/debtor relationship… but filled with different options, possibilities, sympathy, shared equity and stakes about future. The next step is then to start working and designing the Hood Note and the Hood Dapps.
18-22 SESSION 4: ROBIN HOOD EXPO ACTION
With Roberto Ciccarelli
SUNDAY 3.5.
14-17 SESSION 5: USE OF STARTUP TECHNOLOGY
The last step is to work through our new startup company (Robin Hood Services) as a means and a tool box for making RH 2.0 happen. This step is about inventing a new business model which integrates the upsides of startup model and cooperative model, without their downsides (which both have). RHS is a pragmatic “Common Purpose Entity” which we need for bootstrapping the building the full scale distributed autonomy creating organization. It is what they call an “initiator” in fractal geometry.
MONDAY 4.5.
