what are we doing?
WE ARE BUILDING A BRAND THAT HAS A UNIFIED USER INTERFACE ACROSS ALL ITS ONLINE/OFFLINE TOUCH POINTS, THAT IS SHARED WITH ITS OWN PRODUCERS BY A CRYPTO/TOKEN SYSTEM.
~~building an online marketplace platform MVP. connecting~~
~~entity 2 BUYERS with~~
~~entity 1 Maker-communities~~
~~It also indirectly makes way for future connection with
entity 3 Designers~~
This brand addresses itself or views itself as an "Ecosystem"
~~Other stakeholders are:~~ ~~Drivers~~ ~~Crafts trainers~~ ~~CBOs and NGOs~~ ~~Bloggers and writers~~ ~~*These entities are not directly in relationship or dealing with the core community entity 1 or buyers entity 2, they do not exchange money with them.~~
~~Grounded Stream is the "eco-system shaper" entity...~~
~~This formation follows "platform design toolkit" methodology which is open source and can be adjusted according to case.~~
- 1 - crafts are direct source of economic security to the ecosystem
- 2 - eveyrything is connected digitally and also has a twin in the physical world
- 3 - shared common knowledge base
long term vision: shared coop DAO or similar setup with global scale. independant from corporate world. owned and managed collectively, respects tribal existance and individual space.

TURN MY SYSTEM TO COPY-LEFT.
SO I BUILD THE SYSTEM THAT I IMAGINE IS BEST FOR MY COMMUNITY-BASED BRAND, AND I MAKE IT ALL COPY-LEFT.
THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO FREEDOM IN MY OPINION.
COMMENTS ARE WELCOME.
A. Choose a suitable system for INVENTORY management.
I need LISTS of:
4- Packaging materials
5- Packaging solutions
6- ATO-components (Assemble-to-order)
7- Production info file
8- Raw MAterials resources (nu)
9- Empty spots of land dumps (nu)
10- Drivers of trucks that are independent (nu)
B. Define ALL my LISTS:
Distribution centers and supermarkets
When Grounded Stream first came as an idea, it was supposed to be the universal brand focusing on essential everyday products, that is toward a zero-waste lifestyle, exclusively community based, sustainable socially and environmentally, and connected to the roots of origin of the makers of the products. The idea of a product that brings value on more than one dimension, and is not "consumed" but it is "prosumed" "transformed"
As went along, and with going deeper into complex system theories and ecosystem mapping and the idea of creating a new system like a future DAO or some sort, the platform was born to become the TOOL presented for the communities to use to be shown higher on the value chain and be directly credited for their work.
Fast forward to today, it was more than once confirmed to us that the communities only work under TWO MODES; 1- For their own good and nothing else and 2- As working for someone else..
The idea of "collaborations" "simbiotic" relationships, or a two way benefit mutual understanding, is too much for them to worry about. This led to many misunderstandings under this limited culture of many years of programing for "survival" and money is our only tribe we care about. (we can understand after many betrayals from the leaders and the banking world towards them)
So the decision today is:
1- We are carrying all production and product design under GROUNDED STREAM TRADEMARK, 2- The platform will be FOR this MARK, showcasing all the communities that come together to have provided for it in resource/service/product 3- ALL catalogues are GROUNDEDSTREAM catalogues. (No whitelabel anymore or merchandise anymore)

Create a comprehensive FAQ for groundedstream.com.
(@mindey I am using to this website to stream my conciousness, I will get better with time for a solidified communication in its right place, Feel free to remind me of any rules. thx) this project is dates to 2 days only, after it, will grow as progressed
Why does it exist:
- we save time by anticipating the events and questions/demands
- It helps answer high frequency information requests,
- The main entities in this platform:
- The buyer (PC*) entity 1 peer consumers (demand)
- The community (PP*) entity 2 peer producers (producing)
- The stakeholder (no-direct communication with other entities)
- Grounded stream team (Part of the eco-system shapers team engagement: constant with big rest times)
- The Designers [BRANDS] (PPA) entity 3: Peer Partners
This FAQ should address mainly USERS?
I think only main users, so the PP, PC, and PPA
PC <-> PP secondary relationship: PPA <.> PP They are both PRODUCERS.
Third being the PPA <-.-> PC
The role that is an output of the above dynamics: - The crafts trainer (by-product)
Examples of Personas:(keep suggesting in comments) - individual designer, farmer, artist, community heads, grafiti artist, calligraphy artist, beauty products designer, etc. ....
FAQs to ask
FAQ-1 what we are
FAQ-2 Addressing the main Entity, the core entity is ---> PProducer- These are the comunities
PP would ask:
- what is this?
- why am i here?
- what do you want from me?
- how can I be part of this?
- can I make money participating?
- how can I make money?
- If I have a design and I'd like to produce it, will you help me?
- What else can you help me with?
- What do I pay? Whats the bait?
- Anything else? write us:
PC would ask:
- what is this
- why am i here
- how can I beenfit
- How much?
- How can I share my own requests if I dont' find a ready solutions?
+PPA would ask*
- How can I find communities to work with me?
- how to connect with them?
- how can you help me produce more?
- do you offer promotions for designers or artists? how?
- How can I use this platform to my advantage?
I think the above is enough... Or what would a stakeholder ask? or the by-trainer ask as someone who could benefit from this ecosystem?
stakeholder: * How can I help? * How can I know about specific communities? * How can I share feedback?
The BP (I made up this entity: By-Peer (for now) * I teach videos and create many things, how can I be involved? (direct them to the media team, they can shoot a video in our space and we will promote it for them.
NEED WIDGET TO PLAY RADIO ON THE WEBSITE FOR LAUNCH EVENT
HOW TO CREATE PODCAST LIVE
WHAT ARE THE TOOLS...
Find and choose a "payment gateway" for the website MVP.
local/regional/international access clients (Mediteranean, Levant, North Africa/Africa, GCC, Asia, Europe, US/Canada)
ability for memberships (in case we go for individual membership only plans (the platform is B2B unless theres a long term relationship building)
Also whether business are able to pay by installments.
Coop ability, communities saving funds and emergency funds..
Idealy we'd become an independant financial institution, but for the MVP we need to launch our experience.
Find and choose and connect with a payment gateway for the "Middle East" and "international" regions. Current available options are:
- tap (kuwaiti company) very bad customer service but highly recommended in the ecosystem
- MEPs used in Jordan for international dealing
- Hyper pay, local for Jordan and I think Saudi
- Strip (international might be expensive)
What are our options?
Create a tokenisation system that opens up the way for future digital currency that can be used by all communities in this platform.
There are different community circles to be accounted for:
Individual ID circuit
Collective ID circuit
Tribal ID circuit
and Community ID circuit
each has certain rules and levels of effectivenes on the whole ecosystem...
to be thought about, this thread for brainstorming. might need to seperate the circuite from the tokenisation ideas to simplify.
I tried to visit the groundedstrem.com - the site you linked as the project's site, but could not reach it. :) It seem to exist in DNS, but not linked to a server yet. I'm curious about what you're building.
Hello Mindey, we fixed it, there's a place holder landing page now. Still needs some editing I'll do today.
connecting with local provider the usual payment gateways, but also integrating mobile cash and e wallets for the communities and providers. To be integrated this Week
The PPA, PP, and PC, are initials following the Platformdesigntoolkit.com Method I attended their* Platform Design Sprint online sessions, in 2022
And is the main "programing" language I'm using for GS ecosystem
We have changed the templates to be the STAGES of LIFE of a PRODUCT, starting with idea, and ending with compost/soil. And the materials may go in the category.
All the above can be summarised in one quote: coincidentally enough first I heard was from @Mindey: and that was:
"everything is a LIST!!!"
can't be truer. and the Target is:
building GS LIST-TREE..
I've used this app for podcast and it's easy to use. https://www.headliner.app/
In return of working with brand Groundedstream, the communities are getting a unique profile page on the platform where they can share their news, showcase their talents accomplishments and services/products. but they can not upload any products themselves, or sell directly, this only showcases them as a verified and trusted comunity the GS works with.
