Thread on community currencies


Guys lets post a list of community currencies that are out there. I know we talk a lot about berkshares and bristol pounds, lets make a list so we can point people here.


This one is in Berkshires Massachusetts, over 400 businesses use it and about 7 million in circulation


The other one we talk about often is Bristol pound. “The Bristol Pound is a local currency that was created to “improve Bristol’s local economy”. Its primary aim is to support independent traders in order to maintain diversity in business around the city”


Finally since we talk about Detroit as an example a lot, there’s actually a small project called Detroit Cheers going on too
