Abstract

I present the idea of a crypto-economic primitive, known as the JASIRI Protocol. A crypto-economic primitive is a protocol-based incentives system, uniquely enabled by a digital asset, and that wholesomely enables the coordination and allocation of capital to achieve a shared goal via the use of various economic and cryptographic mechanisms. It is a self-sustaining system, with resultant predictable coordination of a set of actors(human and/or machines) working towards some specific shared goal or outcome. Just to distill things a bit, a primitive is simply a form of well-established, generic building blocks that are designed to do one very specific task in a highly reliable fashion. The JASIRI Protocol is a crypto-economic primitive that uses agency-based cash commitments, the Layer-1 Algorand Blockchain, and a flat-coin to facilitate a stable near-zero cost transfer of value among businesses and individuals specifically in Africa.
