Abstract

ebarts is a global, digital currency, based on the provision of a better means of bartering. It is a social currency that is neither bought nor issued, but is created by users in trusted exchanges. All transactions are facilitated through a multi-platform app.

The service is cross-border to support entrepreneurs and facilitate the creation of ecosystems of complementary social economies. Many entrepreneurs have great ideas, energy and skills, but lack cash. Expertise, spare capacity, and goods/services procurement can be financed with ebarts. New networks created through trusted exchange will sustain and promote businesses, and in communities. The goal of ebarts is democratisation of money.
