Hey, Joshua. How great that my one comment gave you such an insight! I do agree that America could certainly use Bread Funds.

So why not turn it around. Write about what community can do for people in search of security. Don’t focus just on your technology (it might sound too commercial to people), but write about the why. And about personal stories related to communities. And about the drive that got you in this adventure in the first place.

If you want, I could send an email to the ‘Broodfondsmakers’ in the Netherlands where Bread Funds are a reality. We could ask them for their opinion? They might have ideas about how to get Bread Funds into the USA.

Just don’t start with trying to sell your technology to them. Your focus, for now, should be on making Bread Funds rise and shine in the USA. And then the market might arise out of the contacts you made in the right group of people. Leave your product be for a bit and start relating to the groups and the people in them.

If you think an email to Broodfondsmakers in The Netherlands is a good idea, just link with me on LinkedIn and I’ll include you in an email to them. My experience is that it all starts with making some movement on this planet. No guarantees of course, but if we don’t get a reaction something else might come along that’s even better… Who knows what might happen next…

You might also like to follow Anna Blume (she doesn’t write a lot on Medium, is more on Facebook). She initiated a large worldwide community Impact Journey. We’re both firm believers in communities to solve world problems. She just does more with tech than I do. She develops basic income systems based on blockchain and other tech systems with the wellbeing of communities in mind. You might reach out to her and have some great techie discussions with someone who definitely will understand your tech struggles.

Happy connecting!
