Hi Manu, Joseph, All

Given that there seems to be a consensus on removing non-fiat. I'm happy to proceed. The easiest, at a first glance, is to just remove the term and not open another can of worms by adding a new term. I believe that the idea is very well conveyed and I feel we don't need to go further.
I implemented this change (removing the problematic term).
cheers
Steph

RE: Doesn’t fiat imply government?

If what's intended in that section of the Charter is to say
"stateless currencies", then some variant of this phrase would be
better. But would "Berkshares" that (I think) involve a regional
government and some municipalites in Massachussetts be inside our
outside that concept? http://www.berkshares.org/community_industry

+1 to removing non-fiat.

Perhaps changing it to "private currencies"?
