Welcome to Boulder Currency
What if we could radically change how we interacted with our community in a way that could create a better quality of life, more local jobs and steward our local economy and environment in a way that was sustainable?
Thousands of communities around the world are starting their own currencies, creating a flow that connects unused resources with unmet needs. The purpose of a functional currency is to create a fair and trustable system of trade that allows for exchange of goods and materials in a more efficient manner.
Our private silver-based barter network is exactly that. Join us in evolving a new economy by becoming part of the "catalyst community" that is reinvigorating Boulder.
Our network is free to join, takes no percentage off of any trade and has no monthly fees. Our network is financed solely by the issuing of barter credit in the form of our silver Gaian.
