How will currency change in the future, or will it stay the same? Will we be buying our soycaf with cold hard fiat dollars, bitcoins, labor vouchers, bottle caps, or something entirely different?

My favorite idea for future currency is TIME! All the work will be as valuable, and with the smart watches and -glasses and -boxers we can automatize the measure system so that everyone's working hours are counted laser sharp. Then you simply trade your work time to someone elses time in the form of goods.

If you really think about it, money already is time. Money is a representation of the value of human labor, when you get down to it, based (roughly, either on the scale of hours or years) on how much time it takes a person of a specified skill level to complete a task.

Once we have post-scarcity manufacturing, the value of human labor will plummet to basically $0 in terms of capital costs. So we will probably have to revert to the original currency; reputation. The internet already has a shade of this; after all, what's more valuable to a large company, a couple million bucks or a couple million followers on twitter?

It was like this in ancient times too. If you broke your leg on the hunt, but you were a good guy, they would probably do what they could to keep you alive, even though it would cost food for the whole tribe. But if you were an asshole, they would be more inclined just to let you die. So really, since money is just a contrivance for organizing human behavior relative to each other, once the contrivance is gone, all that will be left is the natural organization people create; whether they want to work together or not.

The concept of a reputation-based currency has been explored in fiction as the 'Whuffie' : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whuffie

>money already is time
Then why are not everyone working 9 to 5 getting paid equally?

yeah no it's obviously not. it's supposed to be balanced that way but in reality there is an enormous amount of convulution because economies are really just based upon power structures than any reasonable expendature of labor. im sure this will be realized as the great evil of our time soon enough.

Money is a medium for allocating resources, it measures and stores value and can be used for trade. It's pretty good and for a long time it was the best possible solution but I think we can do better now. Sadly it doesn't relate to time and in theory it should instead reflect the value added by an action.

Ideally when trading a it should be occupy a point where it is worth more than one party is giving up, but the other party gets more value from what they receive than they could get using the money any other way, for example someone is 100 units for their work, they value the time and energy at 90 units and the person buying would get value worth 110 units from it. Everyone wins. In reality this does not always occur and I would go as far as saying it's never reliably done this and a lot of people push to make it happen even less. Things like inaccurate information, uneven markets and the like ensure this (advertising that deceives, uneven bargaining, leveraging the legal system to exploit people, and natural monopolies that are run inefficiently either by a poorly managed government organisation or by a private organisation who exploits everyone ruthlessly seeking profit maximisation and not efficiency and so on).

So yeah. Money needs to change or be replaced.

Personally I think crypto is the future. No more centralization, no more states fucking you in the ass, be it regarding your freedom or regarding insane taxation and inflation.

What cryptocurrencies have you invested in anons? What are you bullish on?

Personally I am extremely bullish on Bitbay. It is the sole working decentralized anonymous marketplace and trustless contracting platform while fixing many BTC flaws and planning to have a decentralized peg that brings price stability by preventing volatility, especially [whales, traders/bots, media] shady price manipulation.
Pic related why I am bullish on it. It has both mainstream and darknet potential and could become our own decentralized crypto "eBay/amazon".

currency will become itself, a means of communicating value, stripping itself of all stifling symbolisms, for the maximum efficiency which is THE INFINITE CYCLE OF TRUTH THROUGH THE BEAUTIFUL (GRAMMAR) THE JUST (LOGIC) AND THE GOOD (RHETORIC)
