ORI is an acronym for 1 hour credit of personal non-specialized assistance from a free issuer.

ORI is useful for equivalences when exchanging resources and for the backing of currencies. You may use the «minimum official wage for an hour» for having an ORI equivalence with legal tender ($) (i.e. 4 $/hour in Spain = Minimum unit: A quarter of an ORI).

You can also use -ORI as a suffix or your value or currency (i.e. I have 100 EurORIs from you, means i have 100 euros that buy me your assistance hours at 4$/h : 25 hours of you).

ORIs is an initial standard that anyone is free to value as wished. I.e. I have 25 ORIs of you, but what about your give 10 hours of your professional time instead?.

ORI challenge finally is to give a solid basis on the price of resources by using the most universal standard possible, which is people’s time and not the more distractory Gold. This way there could be a flovecoin that is valued in ORIs that ignores the ups and downs of its price at exchanges.

Why -ORI acronyming

*Acronyming hour to hr is not human-readable

*Other acronyms containing vocals different than the ori one don’t include one letter of each syllabe ho-ur

*Adding the «i» as if it was the roman number 1 (I) is desingly traceable

*It is lovely for using it as a suffix (-ori) for whatever channel used after (i.e. gamori: gaming hours)


OU and-or IOU

As an alternative

*Pro: Sounds like «owe you», the association of hour with exchangeable value will be more straight

*Con: All «ou» common expressions , it could also cause debit confusing with credit
