About Founder

PIERRE COUPET

The founder of Digital Currency Consortium is also the founder of the modern virtual organization management, virtual organization leadership, and virtual organization recruitment disciplines pioneered since 1997.

He is the world’s leading Advocate and Evangelist of “digital currencies” NOT based on blockchain technology. A Digital Currency Purist who eschews the contemptible, sordid, nightmarish, narrow-minded, willfully ignorant, unprincipled, self-sabotage and self-defeating practice of treating digital currencies as cryptocurrencies and listing them on cryptocurrency platforms – a practice which is potentially fraught or laden with severe legal-civil-criminal liability repercussions worldwide. And a prolific author of publications on the need for their strict adoption as a digital currency at the local, national and global level.

A sample of such publications includes: CloudCoin Digital Currency: Why A Currency Exchange With Sovereign Wealth Funds Is A Significant Break For Both ::: CloudCoin: Exclusive Adoption Strategy for the Global General Population ::: Adoption Strategy for CloudCoin As a Digital Global Reserve Currency ::: Digital Currency Adoption Strategy for Cloud and Crypto Currency Companies

He is also the Lead Architect of a Futuristic City-State Enclave Based On a Civilized World Financial System project currently in progress under the auspices of The New Virtual Organization World Consortium. Such system incorporates a “beyond top secret” revolutionary digital currency NOT based on blockchain technology and which is totally unlike (i.e., bears absolutely no resemblance to) any prior, existing or proposed digital currency or cryptocurrency.

He is also the founder of VOMI (“Virtual Organization Management Institute”) ::  Virtual Organization Management Institute Repository :: VOMI Virtual Organization Academy  :: VOMI Executive-In-Residence :: Virtual Organization Leadership ::  Virtual Organization Advisors  ::  Virtual Organization Executives :: Virtual Organization Recruiter ::  The New Virtual Organization World Consortium :: Virtual Campus Dormitory Consortium  :: Virtual Residential Community Consortium :: League of Extraordinary Virtual Organization Executives, and a number of other virtual organization entities and initiatives.

About Digital Currency ConsortiuM

Digital Currency Consortium consists of a loose, informal and voluntary association of executives and professionals from across the globe :: without any official legal status or recognition from any country in the world :: who seek to advance the cause, concept, and global adoption of digital currencies and related platforms which are NOT based on blockchain technology or any other DLT (distributed ledger technology).

Thus, in fact and principle, the Consortium draws a distinction between cryptocurrencies and digital currencies and restricts its activities solely to the evangelization and implementation of the adoption of digital currencies across the globe as well as the eventual emergence of a digital global reserve currency which can co-exist with all existing cryptocurrencies, all emerging Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), and all government fiat currencies and other official legal tender.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Why a Digital Currency Consortium in the first place?

Answer::   Digital Currency Consortium has its genesis in an article published by Pierre Coupet on January 23, 2014 :: My Vision of The New Virtual Organization World. That’s when it occurred to the founder that the scope of this global vision was incompatible with our current global financial system, thus necessitating the need for an alternative financial system for the global implementation of this vision. An alternative financial system which is able to co-exist with the current global financial system, existing cryptocurrencies – then over 64 of them – and other “virtual currencies,” as well as future cryptocurrencies and digital currencies.

The decision was then made to architect the design of a “Futuristic City-State Enclave Based On A Civilized World Financial System” with its own digital currency – NOT cryptocurrency since they all use fiat currency gateways. Such digital currency was then articulated in the December 14, 2015 article :: A Global Need For Principled Geopolitical Leaders under the following action item: Action #12.  Develop a blueprint for the creation and implementation of a “national digital currency” program.

In 2017, the founder of the consortium had a Eureka moment upon coming across CloudCoin, the very first bona fide digital currency pioneered by Sean Worthington of CloudCoin Consortium and then released to the general public :: and thus immediately began to support Sean’s efforts through a number of articles (herein referenced throughout this site), referrals, and personal endorsements (in the 1000’s) along with “advisory services worth millions of dollars” on a pro bono basis since CloudCoin Consortium, to this date, does NOT have the foundational infrastructure, virtual organization leadership infrastructure, financial resources, DISCIPLINE, business strategy, and level of business development sophistication needed in order to implement a truly global digital currency adoption strategy.

However, fast-forward to the present, it has become apparent to the founder of Digital Currency Consortium that our focus should be on helping to encourage and support innovation AT ALL LEVELS AND STRATA of the DIGITAL CURRENCY ECOSYSTEM instead of focusing all our efforts on just One Single Digital Currency in the hope that the primary stakeholders will understand and appreciate the value of our “free services” and take the appropriate steps to quickly implement our recommendations.

Thus the reason why we have now opened our doors and expertise to anyone who wants to be part of this Digital Currency ecosystem – NOT Cryptocurrency ecosystem. Henceforth, instead of “Putting All Our Eggs In One Digital Currency Basket,” we are now inviting everyone to “One Big Digital Currency Melting Pot” which can accommodate and support ALL existing CloudCoin Consortium members and CloudCoin Stakeholders as well as all CBDCs, organizations, institutions, governments, technology innovators and entrepreneurs who would like to understand the difference between a cryptocurrency and a digital currency, its advantages, and how they can develop, help build or participate in a new vibrant and thriving digital currency ecosystem. The more entrants and participants in this new digital currency ecosystem, the better.

Please note that Digital Currency Consortium is NOT designed to replace or compete with CloudCoin Consortium. Rather it is designed to complement the efforts of Sean Worthington and CloudCoin Consortium as we proceed in our own direction with the implementation of our own vision, mission, and global digital currency adoption strategya much more ambitious and revolutionary undertaking.

Thus, we not only invite but also welcome ALL current CloudCoin Consortium members who share our digital currency vision and mission to join Digital Currency Consortium. When and where appropriate, we will provide financial support to CloudCoin Consortium for its Digital Currency Innovation, Research and Development Initiatives – what it is ideally suited for and its claim to fame – just as we would for any other Digital Currency organization which meets our eligibility criteria for such financial support.
