Building Inclusive Community with Complementary Currency
Together we will develop an intentional economic community around a new complementary community currency. The currency “Soltanes”, named after a place of nurturing and growth in a medieval legend called Parzival, is a “complementary currency” because it is not intended to replace existing currencies - just be a tool to help people work together in community.
Soltanes are generated by people contributing to a community project. People can give things and do things and they will get Soltanes. People can then give Soltanes and get other things. See the Take Action page for examples of how you can get Soltanes for contributing - also see below for how to set up your waves wallet and receive your free start up Soltanes.
If you have more Soltanes than you need you can easily give them away to friends or donate them to non-profit basic need agencies or other supports providers to community residents in particular need (see Wallets)
We hope that many vendors will one day accept Soltanes as payment as well. This would depend on people at first wanting to get things and give things using the currency but once this happens it could take on a life of its own - if enough people want to build community through this means of exchange. See current vendors in the Projects page.
