TheGoodData is the first data coop. It improves people's privacy while doing some social good. Its browser extension blocks trackers and anonymously process and trades a small part of data for charities. In exchange, users become the sole owners of the company.
TheGoodData has started supporting users to effectively own their browsing data, but is expected to develop new features to regain ownership of other sets of data: mobile, financial, etc.

All current cryptocurrencies require you to buy the coins, either through mining or through exchanges. This gives the advantage to those who already have capital and mining equipment, and can afford risky investments. FairCoin is the first project where the coins are not bought but rather distributed equally between everyone who wants them regardless of their current financial status, and promotes equality.
FairCoin is a crypto currency like Bitcoin.

To do this during times of unprecedented social, economic, environmental, demographic, and political uncertainty will require us to take a bold approach and step outside of the way we normally do things.
