Future of Money? Imagine

A strange event is going on in the old town of Barcelona, after the evoke experience, citizens organized themselves and went far beyond the old Time Bank that was used in early XXI century...
The financial breakdown of 2010 put in evidence all that money can't buy: time and nature...so in 2020 this are the values that are used as Gold patron in this new project of Barcelona City Council..

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
