Mutual Aid Network
In addition to a monthly Basic Income in our community currency, MADAO users in dire need can safely and easily request and receive help in the form of $ADA from other MADAO members. $ADA can be sold, at any cryptocurrency exchange, for a user's local fiat currency, which can be used to pay for food, rent, medical treatment, or whatever is most useful to that person, according to their own judgment. Whereas traditional philanthropy divides us into groups of takers and givers, mutual aid assumes all humans to be both providers and beneficiaries, recognizing need and demand as equal in importance to production and supply, removing paternalistic oversight and logistical hurdles. We will provide a quick and efficient method to request assistance directly from peers with whom you will have already developed trust through the vetting process to join the community and your continued participation in the Marketplace.
