I know that a flow of electrons is electricity, but what if you had a flow of positrons? Would it be like antielectricity? And what would it do? What would the opposite of electricity do?

A positron is an anti-electron and would annhilate with an electron if it ever contacted normal matter such as in a copper wire. In a environment composed entirely of antimatter, I guess it would exhibit properties exactly like an electron but with a positive charge, but this has never been experimentally proven. Perhaps a theoretical physicist here can add something else...
