Abstract

Conventional money depends upon scarcity to maintain its value and for this reason there will never be enough CM to do all the things that we need to do, for example provide education, care and opportunities. To do this, a new kind of money is needed. ebarts is a multiplatform, global digital currency. ebarts is based on barter, and is created by the users as they buy and sell from one another. It is a system of transferrable IOUs. Because ebarts is created by the users, there will always be enough currency to facilitate exchange, potentially opening up a new social economy. ebarts is the basis of democratic money.
