Act-5: Try out an alternative currency or exchange system for yourself!

This past few days we were learning about alternative currency. Basically, alternative currency means that we can only use the money in a certain place.

Alternative Currency

Alternative Currency is the money that can only be used in a community, but not outside of it.

One of the example of alternative currency is barter. Barter is trading things with things, for example I want to trade my laptop with the watch that I want. Barter have advantages and disadvantages. One of the…

ACT 5: Try out an alternative currency or exchange system for yourself!

My mission this week as part of Mission 5, The Future of Money, was to make at least one economic transaction using a non-traditional currency, platform or exchange system I've never used before. Maybe try an alternative currency, participate in a bartering system or skills bank, and maybe want to make a micro-loan. However, I won't be able to try an alternative currency system or make a micro-loan right now. Thus, I chose to try a bartering system. Even though it is not a bartering system…

The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
